I think you can move to M2 with intercooler or an adjustment in turbo boost. Or both maybe

So I found some good information in the class overview section.

Is winning, or avoiding losing, that important?

You can only bump to a class that your car could actually run in. An M3 car for example could never run in M1, as it’s not possible to bump up two mod classes. Of course then there’s M0 which you could argue is the “open street tire” class that an M3 car (or any car for that matter) could technically be modified enough run in, so it’d be legal there.

That’s how I understand the rules anyways.

so when are you getting your APR intercooler? Those IATs could be down a few temps during the summer :grin:

Philip cannot keep his car running and AKA "Farm Truck" in a real stock race car is kind of dirty. Just let him co-drive the REVO. You guys crack me up. FTD = Foolish Turd Display. (You are all shitting yourselves.)

Guess the young studs don't want to know just how fast their trick cars really are? :wise: I know exactly how fast all my cars are. 3-4 seconds faster than me depending on the length of the course.

If taking a bump into M2, might as well go whole hog.
IS38 turbo, intercooler, water meth injection, injector and fuel pump upgrade to go flex fuel. Gonna need that and more in M2 :)
Critical damping ??? We don't need no stinking critical damping !

I was actually just trying to answer Daniel, not planning on moving out of M3 until after 2019 season. But your right i would need all of that and better skills. I am working on a rear wheel drive project , might be ready for fun runs in a couple of months.
