Yin & Yang M3s @ a cliche dilapitated location, plus a bonus dyno vid!

This is the first time I've had a formal photo shoot of my car, and funny enough this was anything but a formal shoot. I literally hung out for about 30 minutes and then had to catch my flight back to school. Hats off to Kevin a.k.a. FlimFlamMedia for the shots. Damn impressive.

Cesar and I have been long time friends through many different projects, and although our builds are completely different I feel like the cars definitely play off each other.

What makes these cars more than material possessions are the things that nobody else can simply replicate because they have enough money. There's definitely an intangible piece of each of us in our cars, a reflection of our ourselves. Keep in mind each car is simply a canvas, I don't think one is superior to the other, just a different artist's rendition of my favorite automobile.


















































Finally, my dyno video. I purchased a street tune from Randy at Epic last week and he tuned my car remotely on Friday. Relevant modifications are Agency Power headers, stock section 1 & 2, and a Rogue El Diablo muffler, stock panel filter, and I'm running a water methanol setup. I didn't tune for the water/meth so that I don't blow my car up if the spray fails. It serves to keep IATs in check on hot summer days at the track so that the car doesn't detune itself for the heat so drastically.

I need a smaller steering wheel very badly. I will have one by spring. It's just not safe.

I'm jealous, wish I could get out to the track as much as you do. I think I met your dad at Summit Point this past summer.

Nice driving @15:07 on the first vid btw! What suspension are you on?

Two examples of awesomely executed M3's. I like the ultimate klasse air freshener Cesar That LSB is one of if not my absolute favorite sounding E46 M3 (aside from LOADED)

Loving your LSB car! Looks like its ready to go to work!

Our cars are modded pretty similarly. My PFC06's never made my rotors look like that though.

How were your gains with the Epic tune? I just ordered it on black friday.

I didn't even see the video title on the 2nd video. As soon as it started playing I was like holy **** Road Atlanta. I've had the joy of being on that track with pro Driver Chip Herr in a e36 m3 racecar. It was awesome. They actually black flagged us because he was causing the RR tire to smoke from the camber being pulled so hard going into turn 1. You did some great driving there man. Way to use all of the track after the "S's" and 10A and 10B come up quick
