Track Mods

After 2 years of tracking with stock 18 M2, am looking to go to the next level and start going down the rabbit hole of making my M2 more competitive in tracking with HPDE. Would like some advice of fellow Trackers of what would be the best Bang for Buck in upgrades. I love my stock M2, and am very impressed with performance, I just want to take it to the next level.

Camber (assuming you've already done this), tires, coils

Welcome to the world of hating money!

Any area in particular you want to improve - or just want to overall go faster? 100% stock? What mode you usually track in?

6MT - CAE shifter & clutch delay valve removal - so much more enjoyable to drive. Faster shifting & much more precise (less chance of $ shift)

Done anything for safety & braking? What tires are you running?

Garage List
2018 BMW M2  [0.00]
Brake fluid, brakes, tires, camber plates, suspension.

Probably in that order.

Yes, the one thing I think could be improved on is the shifter on this car. Have you done this? What would it cost? Are there any cons to do this if you DD your car? Does it work with Sport/Sport Plus, or by-pass the M2's system?

Yes I have the CAE shifter http://www.hardmotorsport.com/cae-ul...r-bmw-f2x-f87/] - not the cheapest option but imo worth every penny. Got it in anodized black with the alcantera w/blue stitching knob & paired it with the M3/M4 alcantera DTM wheel https://ind-distribution.com/collect...steering-wheel - love the combo. The shifter on its own is night & day vs the oem - precision, throw length just a huge upgrade. The CDV removal should be pretty cheap from someone who is familiar with BMWs - & I think there is a pretty detailed DYI posted on here somewhere.

I do not DD my M2 but can not think of any cons to running the setup everyday on the street. In fact if I were to DD this car I would much rather have this setup than the oem - just that much more enjoyable for me. No issues that I have seen with any of the settings.

What else are you thinking of upgrading?
