  • 190E 2.3 vs. E30 M3

    My buddy just got one, I was wondering if I should be worried about it at track days.

    My initial thoughts are that I have 50hp on him, but I don't know anything else about the cars.

          Okay then, should be fun. :evil:

          The thing is he is running full coilovers and it's stripped down, it's basically a pure track car. I'm only on Eibachs and street rubber. That's why I'm nervous. I'm sure that straight line I'll win no contest though. I'm probably still a little lighter than he is though, since he has an 8 point cage too.

              Wow,, reading that article brings me back to when I first read about these cars back then and lusted after one.
              The first time I saw one in a dealers window I was awestruck.

              Fantastic article,,, GREAT M3 website.
              That website is a treasure trove of great vintage stuff.

              Good one

                Take pictures of the 190E! I'm interested to hear how the 190E handles. I'm sure your 2.5L won't have any problems. Keep us posted.

                  190e vs. E30 M3

                  that 190e on coilovers driven by a good pilot will probably run you down unless it is a horsepower track only where you should have a good showing.

                  Everyone forgets that corner speed will translate to higher straightaway speeds too. So even though he will be down on power he will still be quick.

                      Brian,

                      I suspect that if you both are similar in skill and balls, then the 190e will probably give you a fit.

                      My 2.5 car struggles to keep up w/ the JS cars at Limerock becuse that course is all about handling and a JS car is much better than my street car.

                      But if I get to the POcono Long Course I can get the advantage because of the enormous amount of WOT time there.

                      Work on your skills and you just may hang w/ your pal. this should get him scratching his head and wondering why he bought that MB in the first place.Of course then he will want the M3 and then where will you be? :idea:

                      Eric:pilot: :woohoo:
