BMW 320 STW in RACE
Listen to the loud transmission as you watch the BMW race and weave around
all the cars.
More info from user JDMMotorSports. Thanks!
"thats a dogbox transmission the gears are cut str8 and produce whining
noise the faster they are spooled
up, some of the noise is caused by the racing transmission fluid they use
as well. BTW rear ends or differentials only make noise when they lock
such as a 2 way under torque, on normal use no rear end would make that
amount of noise."

Dramatic STW Final 1999 - Title Decider
The classic STW final race of 1999 at the Nurburgring. This decided the
championship that year. During the last lap of the race at Nurburgring, Uwe
Alzen, Christian Abt's main rival for the championship was leading, with
Abt 2nd. As they reached the chicane Alzen was coming up to lap Abt's
teammate Kris Nissen and they both crashed. Abt was now in the lead but at
the last corner, Alzen's teammate Roland Asch, who was right behind the
trio and had already been black flagged in the race, crashed into Abt,
taking him out. Alzen limped to the checkered flag in 2nd place and handing
him the championship. But not for long as several weeks later, an amateur
video proved that Asch crashed into Abt deliberately, and as a result, the
DMSB, the German governing body sanctioning the STW annulled the last lap
of the race, handing the championship back to Abt.
