As always a great video and really nice driving. Your driving is always smooth and that qualifying lap your nailing the apex and earring good speed through the corners. Awsome!  

Thanks Vince. I'm only sorry things didn't turn out better. We've been on a real bad streak of luck the last few events.

Tough year for sure (expensive as well).  Guessing it won't be too many more races before you will need to have a peek inside your M12.  It looks like you are running a 235 trans in that car, for some reason I thought it had a ZF.  A friend of mine that runs a Schnitzer engined 02 finally relented after blowing up a couple of 235's and put a ZF in it.  They aren't inexpensive but are much more capable of handling the high revs and hp.  My friend Davide at GR-Box in San Marino can help you out.

Thanks Mark. Going to be a long and expensive winter. Final diagnosis on the M3 is a cracked flywheel. Another weird failure for sure.

 

I have an Elite ZF gearbox in my Koepchen 02 and I love it. I think I'd consider that trans for the GS Tuning car. It's rated for 300 HP.

I would consider one myself, I recently purchased a bunch of stuff I didn't really need (but would be hard/impossible) to find in the future that would have offset the cost of a ZF.  I have a really good 235/5 + nearly enough spares to build almost two more.  For the time being it is going to be a 235/5 going back in.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
