My Ride: M3 HPF Stage 3
I am not a huge fan of widebodies but this car is Bad to the Bone! Wing is wicked too. Nice job. Are you running 345mm tires? Does the extra width really help that much or is more about the compound of the tire? What are you running and how is your hook up?

315mm is pretty much the limit for a stock but heavily fender rolled E46.

Enjoyed the vids. Try getting out of heavy traffic for the next go around, so you can really open her up!

Thanks Dave. I'm running Hoosier A6s all the way around. The rears are 345 and the fronts are 295 I believe. They hook really good once they are warmed a little. Can't floor it in first gear even if they are hot(see next paragraph). Second gear I can floor it and they will only slip a little if good and warm. Those driscriptions are Pump Mode only - 660whp. No shot of sticking if Race/Meth are set to go. They will catch good at Higher speeds. But even with the limitations of the A6s I will most likely always run them. They give good feedback when they start to let go.

In the vid where I am just pulling out of HPF I had stomped it in first gear forgetting that I should Not do that. The car got a sideways a little. I had not drivin it since October so I forgot some of the does and donts. Camera started recording right at the end of it. Didn't even get 50 feet from HPF before almost wrecking the damn thing. Lol. That's why me and buddy were joking about trying not crash it.

Oh, that would have been great! ...slide your new widebody sideways in to a pole! Not even funny.

So, thanks for the detailed explanation. Its too bad tire technology has not caught up with all the HP and TQ we have available to us. You are not going to get much better stick with stability too than A6's.
Have you thought of having your HPF TC tuned/optimized specifically for your car? I am led to believe much friendlier, usable results can be had with careful tuning by HPF at their facility.

Is it ever frustrating having all that power and not be able to lay it down smoothly with a state of the art TC like Pro EFI? I chose not to use ProEFI so I am really interested to see if HPF can fine tune their TC to work so its actually usable with 800+ HP cars. Have you discussed this with HPF?

Again, I compliment you on doing a clean job of a high profile wide body car. Very good taste. You must be up for some magazine shoots?
