Given that the E30 M3 is listed in Stock 5 (and is moving to GS next year -
does anyone remember when that was put up for member input? - I must have
flaked and not seen that) I think that will be even faster than the Type-R.
Just from gathering info from the web (however accurate that is :-) it looks
like the E30 M3 is missing the one thing that all G-Stock cars have - an
Achiles heel. Follow me for a second:
Type-R - FWD, No torque, narrow wheels.
DSM cars - Narrow wheels, heavy.
E36 BMW, Audi A4 - Heavy, big (relatively)semi-soft.
Prelude Type-SH - FWD, heavier than a Type-R.
The E30 M3 has:
192 hp, 170 torque.
0-60 in 6.9, but that requires a shift since second is good only for 56.
Weight - 2500-2600 as far as I can tell.
Was it several years ago that Bob Tunnell beat all the MR2 Turbo, 944, etc.
at Wendover in one of these critters?
And indeed I _am_ biased, but at least I admit it!
