An APR dual element carbon wing was used with the stays being directly attached to the chassis for a stiff and strong mounting point. A lightweight DTM Fiberwerkz fiberglass deck lid was used as well.

The front air dam is a DTM Fiberwerkz part that is styled like the E46 GTR DTM car. The carbon kevlar splitter isn't done correctly, it has huge air leaks and has mounts that will tear right out at speed. We will be redoing all of this in the near future. 

A DTM Fiberwerkz wide body kit was employed. It is a really good replica of the E46 GTR DTM car and has decent aero features that were originally CFD'ed and wind tunnel tested by Williams that we will make functional as the car comes together. 

The DTM Fiberwerkz rear bumper has decent venting which will be put to use as we get the car up and running. Unfortunately, the wide fenders and side skirts were molded in, something we usually would not do for a race car, but it at least looks good. I hope we don't crash, ever.

The DTM Fiberwerkz fenders feature proper venting louvers in the front fenders, but they come without the vents being cut out. We will have to address this.

I actually just stumbled upon this ad yesterday for an s65 e46 racecar:

I'm sure you're already aware of this but if not maybe it helps. Looks like he's running a life ECU.

I think its gonna be stand alone for sure. This thing stopped running after a few starts and will not wake up.

Randy would be the guy to solve your issue. Or go stand alone.

Looks like others have commented on the trans controller stuff.

There's actually a bunch of rally struts that used to use roller bearing guidance - WRC until it got banned, British touring car, stuff like that - but I haven't seen the linear ball bearings like KW is using done other than by KW, albeit I've been thinking of it myself.

Why go to all the trouble of using an e46 chassis? I have an e46 m3 that I love, but what makes it more desirable than just using an s92 and doing away with the ECU headaches?

Looks like you're in the same boat as these guys:

They appear blissfully unaware of the struggle. Might be worth putting your noggins together on this one.

I really have always wanted an E46 M3. It's sorta dumb but its been my dream car.

Thank you Bba, I am also considering just going with a Motec M1 and a Samsonas transmission and be done doing the guinea pig stuff. I think it might be cheaper in the long run and be a neater car.

I like it DCT concept and baller execution. Good luck with the custom wiring. You've shown that it is the safest and most clean way to set up a custom race car.

My dream swap is a S62 in to my E46 Sedan and wide body it but keep it street car/touring comfy. (maybe more oem ECU friendly)

The sedan is 50% stiffer than coupes, especially my base bitch with no rear fold downs. Ready for that TORQUE.

The sedan is 50% stiffer than the M coupes? I thought they were reinforced in comparison to the standard E46 chassis? On a related tangent, mine is supercharged via Dinan but will not pass DEQ inspection as not all of the sensors will post ready. Is there someone that can make it ready up so I can get it to pass inspection? There's a lot of information about the ECU online, but it looks intimidating to say the least.(Dinan doesn't want anything to do with it as they quit supercharging cars years ago.)

Pretty certain Epic only does the S65 swap stuff in house. That info doesn’t go ‘public’. The S65 E46s here in the NE all made the trip to Miami.

Just talk to www.dieboldautosport.com. He has mapped all the S65/Life Racing cars in the states and a good amount of the PTG cars (that still run on track). Fletcher builds them and Franz looms and maps them.
