Yeah, but I'm not shitting you when I say this, a new V8 M3 costs us $180K. Gotta love those import taxes.

I love watching the Australian V8 supercars on speed! The last one a couple weeks ago in Dubai was awesome... and the facility was incredible! They showed video like that too... now if I can only get my front tires to do that apexing out of a corner...

Yea I would LOVE to have a picture of my car standing on three wheels coming out of a corner. I don't think it's going to happen on street tires.

Post said pics please!

Also what your suspension setup is. I used to drool over the M3's doing this at the auto-x coming out of corners.

Thanks!
