Braking is extremely important in motorsport builds.
After tyres, another important component of a racing BMW is good brakes. To consistently slow a car for corners lap after lap without fade will allow focus on driving quickly. The CAE shifters we fit provide drivers with quick reliable gear changes over the course of a race. A missed change can mean a lost position or worse still a damaged engine from overrevving.
Safety is a given with racing, passing scrutineering before being able to race is important but that’s only half the story. A well designed, fabricated and fitted cage should also be lightweight. This will give you an edge in braking, cornering and accelerating. More importantly, it will survive the brutal forces of a racing accident protecting you from extreme harm, allowing you to escape from the car quickly. Autobahn are experts in bmw e46 roll cage fitment and will provide the right cage for your on-track activity.
Making a car as light as possible is commonplace in the paddock. We provide carbon fibre components to replace heavy steel doors, bonnets, wings and more. Swapping real glass for Lexan resin not only lightens your vehicle, it also lowers the centre of gravity aiding stability. Ask our knowledgeable staff for advice about the right choice for your BMW track car.
Power and Reliability
BMW produced the famous M12 Formula One engine which was claimed to produce a maximum output of 1400bhp. This made it the most powerful F1 motorsport build ever. That amazing power output was for qualifying only, the F1 engines were then swapped for race spec units which were lower powered. Autobahn will expertly provide an engine, motorsport build which are optimal in both power and reliability. You want to know when you drive on track you can finish the race.
Today, electronics play a huge part in the auto industry. Our engine remapping upgrade services provide more power via a laptop without compromising on drivability. For the ultimate in power increasing however, the Autobahn fitted supercharger kits are both reliable and smile inducing in equal measures.
Power is useful but if you can’t apply it to tarmac, it means nothing. The right choice of tyre for the conditions is one part of the equation but another factor is a Limited Slip Differential. An LSD is a specialist part of a cars drivetrain which provides as much power to all driven wheels limiting slip in the process. Like all car components, differentials can wear which means less performance. Autobahn will rebuild your LSD to give you the most traction possible.
Suspension and Setup
Setting up car suspension to be fast and drivable can be a dark art. Autobahn have fitted many sets of Nitron Coil Over Suspension kits to BMW cars. We tailor a cars setup to suit it’s intended purpose. Track day cars for novice drivers need to be more forgiving than high specification endurance racers. Autobahn has the right knowledge for each vehicle we prepare.
How the suspension is attached to the chassis is important. Normally, standard rubber suspension bushes can wear leading to unwanted movement between components. Upgrading to Powerflex Bushes will tighten and stiffen up a car leading to more reliable tailoring of suspension setups.
