like what exactly do you do when yall say you "take ur bmw to the track"

since it was related with subframe failure I didnt know what you actually did at the track that made ur subframe fail?

do you go around turns really fast I guess? or drift alot I guess?

or is it the combination of that and really stiffened up suspension and stuff like that that causes sub frame failure

just wondering

autoX, drift contests, maybe BMW school track courses, etc.

I don't track now, so I don't know that much, but if I get this job I've been interviewed for, I might be track racing a really fast e46.......oooooeee

AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

are E36's any good on the track, my mates are driving Caterham 7, Westfield Megabusa ( has a 1200CC Bike engine,0-60 @ 3.4s ), Lotus Exige, Lotus Elise and a Honda S2000.

I'm tempted to have a cane with them on a trackday,have a 323i coupe , UK, with M-Tech kit, suspension, body kit,17" E36 M3 replica's (profile ?) , otherwise stock, and 1385kg stock, they are running 500-750 kg's... what d'ya reckon ?
I think straight off I need to consider new air filter, exhaust , lower profile tyres , maybe anti-roll bar ?
