Mounted Black satin SSR 18s wrapped in 11 inch wide Nt01s... Stock toe with half a degree of negative camber

Weigh half as a much as the m6 wheels they replaced... Looking forward to testing out the traction and dialling in speed based boost and traction control to get his thing moving efficiently

Nice work!
These wheels should give enough traction.

Didn't make dyno yesterday. but I did manage to test out the new R compound tires today.... Lots more grip even in 7c weather... I could hook in 3rd no problem... And second the traction manageable with my foot... I didn't have speed based boost or traction control on... I'm sure with warm weather I'll hook in second with minimal adjustments and with little TC intervention... This is obviously at low low boost of 20psi... 50/50 I'm hopeing for 3rd ... We will see....

Car also noticeably pulls hard above 6500 so the power feels good.. The logs show timing was 5.5 degrees at peak rpm which is way better

Did CSL SMG DME rev match modifications and CSL shift parameters also modified the DME removing speed limiter, and Dyno rev limit raised to 8k among a host of others changes. Still working on removing EML light and factory 02 sensors. I soooo like the way it shifts and drives with this change --) I'm going to delay my SMG to manual conversion a bit to play. It shifts incredibly hard compared to before...

High end ECUs have a much better traction control menu.

There is steering demand, which allows to alter traction control according to steering angle.
There is g sensor based correction, which allows to alter traction control according to various g values.
There are other traction control related corrections.

When my E36 M3 Euro TT ran 60-130 in 4,49 seconds traction control was not active. This E36 M3 had very good traction and did not need any traction control interference.
When my E46 M3 Euro TT ran 60-130 in 4,23 seconds traction control was active and it kicked in a lot.

If the car ise set properly it will dead hook. "Proper setup" is the key...

I like the way you work on your M3, very few E46 M3 enthusiasts do this way. But a convertible chasis will flex and flex, you better swap into a coupe

Good times and is inspiring to know that dead hooking is possible with correct setup... This is exactly what I'm aiming for ...

I have been contemplating going the coupe route as well.. Yet at the same time I like that the convertible is different so I'm also considering reinforcing the chassis with tubular bars down the front to back under dash and along the floor boards with cross brace in rear seat area with a subtle roll bar. Like this but with rear head rests removed and smaller Chrome Molly tubing as well as lighter seats.

What kind of front spittler do you have?!?! Also, what kind of exhaust is that?

I've never thought these kind of rims would look good on silver verts but you've proved me wrong! What kind of SSR wheels are they?

Front splitter is AC Schnitzer and the exhaust is a customized 4 inch with duel 3.5 inch outlets Stage 3-4 from HPF.

The wheels r SSR Type C weighing 18lbs with NT01s... I wasn't sure how they would look either but was pleasantly surprised. I'm having my M6 wheels powder coated the same Satin Black for regular street use as I can't stand them stock...

If you are happy with the soft top you keep on working on soft top. But it will still flex whatever you do....I would not put extra metal to stiffen up as it will raise weight.

More weight means more stress on drivetrain. Transmission failures will ocur sooner with the added weight. So many factors to consider.

If you want to have a rigid chasis, coupe & roll cage 6 point is the answer.

A convertible and roof down is fun for sure.

If you are not after the fastest times and best traction, enjoy your nice soft top. Still fast, fun etc.

Ur right I'm not going for the fastest M3 and want to keep the fun factor and practicality of the car intact... At some point it crosses the line ... I've been there before with my e36 LTW ... One day it had one seat, weighed less than 2800lbs, no sound deadening and had fire suppression .... Wasn't practical for the street and ended up on the track for the rest of its life...

If I change my mind in the future ill sell this and build an all out coupe

For a vert it has surprised a few

buying a used HPF M3

As a result of seeing my new rims I decided to Black out my regular driving 19 inch M6 wheels with Nitto Invos... IMO A lot better...but I still prefer the 18s by a LNG shot

buying a used HPF M3

Had a lot of fun with car today with 10C sunny weather. I worked on fine tuning the setup. I was able to get traction in second with just the right amount of wheel spin that they hooked hard. I did not have TC turned on. I was able according to the logs do some decent times.

Running low boost based on my logs the car managed without to much effort:

60-to 130 in 4.3 seconds from 3rd thru 4th
60 to 150 in 7.1 seconds 3rd thru 5th
20 to 135 in 6 seconds 2nd thru 4th

This should not be compared to other cars times as there was a bit of down grade with a up hill at the end on the road I used. This is not an accurate comparison to vbox times and I'm not claiming they r.... Still it was freaking fast and I had my neighbour with me hanging on scared out of his wits.... It was his first ride in a stock bimmer. Lol

I will never drive on any tire other than dot track tires... They r essential to serious fun...

yea they look so much better black lol. I'm in love with your SSR but I'm having the hardest time locating a set for this car. How long hard did you have to look to find your SSRs?

I got them privately here in Canada... Apparently they don't make these any longer... They have others that r close. I believe 5 spoke verses 6

They're discontinued unfortunately. I guess the 5 spoke would looks more JDM lol. It's very hard finding nice rims for these cars especially titanium silver convertibles. I've had my car for 3 years and haven't settled on a set. I also can't decide on the color as well lol
