stupidly wide!

strangely stretched on tires though? That added wheel width is just dead weight? Can anyone explain that design choice?

A 300mm tire on a 12.5" wheel sounds like 'stance'.. Let alone on a 13" Does the stiffer stretched sidewall help with handling?

Can anyone explain the sizing though? 300/680/18? Overall diamter rather than 'profile' ?
The engine is called P65 not S65, its a tuned S65 basically like how the S63 is a tuned N63 etc.
Ah fair enough

Well it makes about the same power as an s65 4.4 lol.. I guess since that's all the m3 gts is, a homologated gt3 car..

BUT as far as i read the rules... It means there'll be a v8 roa going z4 for sale soon?


Ed: though reading up on the p-motors.. They're not even fully forged? At least not in their spec list.. Strange design choice for what should be a lightweight race motor :/
