They sell it through https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/...item/10002592/

Maybe they have a European distributor meanwhile

I feel balance of breaking is fine, but need to replace bushings on front, car moves unpredictable during hard breaking with slicks and agressive pads.

More grip on front axle by using slicks makes car more working on front, thus a strut bar should contribute more stiffness, particulary as M2 does not have any strut bar by factory design.

MX72 is indeed not a track pad like ME20 and ME-22. What would be the benefit to keep MX72 at the rear...? I would think this would upsett the brake balance.
You mean bushings of the calliper? And with what are you going to replace them with?

You are right, only benefit was MX72 on rear were built in and in good condition, friction rates are close to ME22, and rear brake never exceeded 700 deg C, so I decided to keep. Replacement will be ME22.

Bushings: Maybe I used wrong wording, I change this part:

Nice build! Did you reuse your stock mounts for your seats? Can you share the hardware you used for the pole positions?

As my experience, you can not use OEM mounts for the pole position seats, the floor mounts were provided by the dealer who sold and installed the seats, A-workx in Germany.

Looks like a fun car. Curious, what do you do with it? Obviously you taking to the track but are you doing something competitive or simply enjoying the car on track?

That's awesome! I wish I could've gotten a stripped down version of my m2 with no Nav and no "luxury" items, but in Canada the m2 only comes one way with very few options.

I track it for fun, my most competitive rival is the guy I see every morning in the bathroom mirror....

I withdraw the traffic license for the car, as some mods are not road legal anymore.

You've built a serious weapon for the track. I bet it's a blast!
