Agree the M3 is probably the closest car to production in the entire field. That is why I was sad to see it loose. The mustang that won the championship has a total different engine from Ford racing. The Transmission is not the stock either. The Control arms and suspension pieces are not stock. The M3 is the other hand has its stock engine, transmision and intake. The control arms are stock. Only the shocks, springs, front brakes, exhaust and roll cage are not stock. The turner motorsport M3 was the car that won the most races. They could not catch the mustang in points because the first race they finished last due to electronic pedal malfunction. Grand American has a funny point system like nascar were is hard to beat a car that finishes 3-4 every race when you finish last on one race.
