Feeler: FS 1999 BMW 328is

Post by dtlemoine » Mon Jan 06, 2020 3:29 pm

Summary
Not officially for sale, but wanted to post as a feeler. Considering a few options for the COM 2021 season. Car is a multiple-class winning car built for COMSCC Time Trials, holds class records in T50, T60, SD. Car currently runs in SD, could also slot in towards the top of T80 on current setup, middle of T70 on Nittos/RE71R, or top of T60 on 300 tw summer tires.  A swap back to the M52 cams would remove ~8 Touring points from engine assessment.

Built and maintained by Wile Motorport. No longer street legal - built for Time Trials & HPDE; very good safety gear, however does not have full cage for W2W racing. Driver and passenger belts were new for the 2020 season. Shocks were also rebuilt at the factory and upgraded to their latest valve design.

Clean title, formerly registered in MA as street car. Car is straight, but does have it's fair share of zipties; never involved in contact with a wall, barrier, or other vehicle.

New kid has arrived and the feeler is still out. Car set 4 SD track records in 2020:

South Oval: 1:11.718
Palmer: 1:45.216
remlap: 1:44.414
WGI: 2:07.881

Photos are old, nothing has really changed aside from new belts on both driver and passenger side. Schroth Flexi 2x2.

Congrats and good luck with the sale.
