I wasn’t expecting much out of the M3. But with this setup, its a fun drive!
Car: M3 Sport Evolution ’89
Track: Not Track Specific (Nurburgring specific tune found here)
Tires: Racing Super Soft
When tuning, I usually pick a track at random and tune it specifically for that track.
This time, I wanted to do something different. To focus on overall drivability!
First, I tested on Bathurst, then Nordschleife, then Tsukuba, then Lago.
I wouldn’t necessarily complete a lap, instead drive about 90% of the way and start over. Setting a time would mean I’d have to push faster… well… the idea behind this tune is for you to just drive the car. Not race it particularly.
Take it on a cruise on Nordschleife.
You see, I used to have a FC RX-7 ’90 back in high school… I was a kid and Tokyo Drift was in theaters, I got introduced to Initial D… I mean just sitting in my car felt real good! You know what I mean?
Well, I feel that this car is also special for you guys as well! Lots of memories! Good times and bad!
I hope this tune brings that nostalgia!
Enjoy the drive everyone! It’s why we became car guys!
