In Reply to: What's a good auto-x set up for the M3? posted by Pete on November 08, 1999 at 12:13:37:
The E30 M3 is a great autocross car, just not in A Stock. I've been autocrossing mine for about two years with a try at Nationals last year (98). I regularly beat everyone around here in A Stock (a boxster or two and some E36 M3s), but got waxed at Nationals. I know local and regional auto-xs and National competetion are a very different thing but Porsche 968s and well driven E36 M3s are extremely fast. As far as CSP, I think coil-overs aren't on option in Street Prepared. Plus most of the other modifications you could do won't help the car beat those very light, very fast hondas.
I use a very stock setup with only Bilstein Sports as the only modification. I use stock wheels with 225/50/15 Kumhos. I also switched to Pagid pads (work great cold). I even use a stock alignment. I'll switch to the offset upper strut mounts soon and maybe the aluminum control arms, but that's because I also track the car and don't need one (a control arm) failing on me.
