BMW E36 point assessment question

Recommended Posts

SlowBMW

I have a 1998 BMW 328is. The car comes with a 2.93 open diff. If I swap in a stock M3 3.23 LSD I obviously need to add +3 points for "added LSD", do I also need to add +3 for final drive ratio modification?

Yes. And note it's +6 whether you swap in a junkyard 3.23LSD or a built 4.56 with a Quaife

Under Section I - No Points Modifications

D4 - Final Drive Ratio Modification

 

Changing from an open diff to an LSD would be +3.

Modifying an LSD ( like with more discs or different lock-up/ramp rate) would be +1.

 

If you're just doing a final drive ratio change then its free in TT!

Good to know. I was asking about NASA-x but will be doing TT as well.

No worries. The classing systems are very similar but not exactly the same. Main differences are that all NASA-X classing is "points for parts" based (no TT1-2-3 power to weight dyno stuff), and that a bunch of the no-points mods for TT and PT take points in NASA-X.

 

If you think of any other questions, fire away anytime, on here or to me privately, jfelton at drivenasa dot com . Also if you need any E36 specific suggestions or advice we have plenty of experience with those cars (and the NASA classing of 'em) around here.

 

Thanks & hope it helps,

 

Jon
