Default Track Photo Content: Some BMWs Having Fun at Buttonwillow Raceway

This weekend (3/17/13) we headed out to Buttonwillow Raceway for a trackday hosted by Speed District. The turnout for BMWs, including many of our customers, was impressive. Here are some awesome photos that have been graciously provided by the Speed District photographers. Enjoy.

how did the new VT2 500 production kit work out on the Z? Any overheating or heat soak? Was thinking about upgrading from the 445 just waiting for ESS to release a price for the upgrade.

There isn't a bad thing I can say about it, the Z4M performed flawless on the track. This is simply the gotta-have-it kit for Z4M owners.

ESS knocked it out of the park with this kit. We're doing some more dyno runs today and will have more info shortly.

awesome news! They've had the "500" kit for awhile, but it had to be installed there and almost every kit was custom i.e. the piping route for the intercooler etc if i remember correctly. love that they finalized a production model for the masses!! Anyways, when you guys get a price for the upgrade (and if its reasonable) i will be heading down there! just pm me when you guys get more info!
