One thing I just realized was I have no whiplash whatsoever. Pretty sure I hit the tire wall at around 100mph.

Unfortunately my video from that session was corrupted. But I'm fairly certain the Hans device played a big role in mitigating that.

Only pain is where the lap belt held me in. It's still hard to walk around and bend over. Hoping it just lasts a few days. Muscle relaxers and pain killers make it bearable.

Thanks again for all the kind words.

Dropped trailer off at York Automotive in Mt Airy to assess the damage. Keep you guys posted.

Man that's a blessing, someone was looking out for you! Hitting anything at 100 mph is pretty gnarly. Just glad you're okay.

Sorry to hear. Not submitting a claim sounds sensible but you can look at modifying your current plan to substantially reduce the premium, either in the short term (for a few months while repairs are done) or for the rest of ownership.

100mph is a big hit! I wouldn't have guessed it from the pictures of the car.

I think people underestimate how hugely important a Hans devise is, and how beneficial it is that the quick fit enables its use.

Also, tire walls FTW.

Not my intention, but S54 swapped E36's rip. If OP is looking for a track only car. If he wants to fix the car it's gonna cost more than the car is worth. Hence why I said if he really really really wants to fix it.

Damn, hate to hear about this kind of thing. Glad you are okay. Unfortunately I don't think any/many insurance companies will cover on track incidents (unless you buy special track day insurance.)

Well it looks like the M3 will have to be put out to pasture . Front shock towers moved about three inches so the chassis is done. Not sure I want to go through the hassle of finding a tub and rebuilding it.

The shop that works on offered to buy it as-is. Not sure what price I should be asking given it's condition. Any ideas?

Drivetrain:
- Rebuilt VANOS from MisterEm with new valvebody and solenoids.
- Tilton Triple Disc Clutch
- Cryo treated hubs
- WPC Rod Bearings
- Brand new water pump/thermostat

Chassis:
- front mason strut bar (might be damaged)
- rear mason x brace

Suspension:
- JRZ RS-2 (fronts are likely damaged)
- Turner sway bar front and rear

Brakes:
- ST-40 Front 332mm rotors rebuilt this year

Other stuff too but thats the big ticket items I think I could part out.
