E92 M3 Track Car Build by Turner Motorsport
This black 2008 M3 coupe was brought to us by it's owner with only 4,600
miles on the clock. He asked us to transform his M3 from a street car into
a dedicated track beast, custom built to his needs. It received a TMS
fabricated "standard" race/track cage setup, MOTON coilovers, full race Exhaust (with cat-delete), software, TMS
Power Pulley, carbon fiber roof (car originally had a sunroof with steel
panel), Forgeline 18x10" non-staggered race wheels with 275 width Hoosiers,
custom built center console, retained iDrive (strictly monitoring engine
oil level and other electronic features), BMW Performance Steering wheel,
fire extinguishing system, racing harnesses, baseline suspension setup, and
many many more features and products. The end result: This M3 is FAR
lighter than a standard "street" E92 M3, and benefits from added horsepower and torque over
stock. After some track time and dialing in of both the car and driver,
this Turner-built E92 M3 will be the ultimate weapon for track days.

323 MPH TurboJet car blows away Texas Speed Record
Live on from the Texas Mile, Spring 2008, we check in with Team Dewitt as

Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

S.W.'s 246mph Texas Mile, Goliad, Tx, Spring 2009
Here is a short sequence I made documenting S.W. and the Boost Logic crew setting the Texas Mile record
at 246mph. I would like to thank them for allowing me to go along and
document their process, it was a blast and I look forward to going again.
The car is a 1995 Toyota Supra Hardtop with roughly 1,300rwhp, I believe
the turbo is a 91mm.
