In-Depth Video of M4 GT4 - by Studie AG

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This video popped up in my YouTube feed and thought I'd share it for anyone who's interested. It's in Japanese and YouTube's subtitles don't help much, but it's a great watch for the visuals alone. I love this race car. I hope you guys enjoy it too.

Thank you. I watched the entire video even though I didn't understand much of it. The close ups were very helpful to see how the car differs from the production model. I raced on the same track against a GT4 (they were testing) and the car was 14 sec faster than my back then 16 M3 on R comp tires. It's great to see an overview video.

Clearly, it's because you didn't have this in your 2016 M3.

I think he just needed to add 1 psi to the left rear tire to help in cornering

Yes Aerocatch. They're pricey, but don't ever get the cheap knock offs.

you have a dinosaur? I'd love to take it off your hands!

The jokes were old but who cares when we all could use a little humor

Interesting that the GT4 doesn't use carbon ceramic brakes even though it is a dedicated track car.

No GT race car series uses or even allows Carbon Ceramic Brakes. In fact the only racing series I know of that uses CCB is Formula 1.

Booked the "BMW M Race Track GT TRAINING LEVEL 1" at Nurburgring, for 23-24.07.2019 I think. Sometimes towards the end of the course, you get to drive the GT4 for almost an hour

Can't wait until then.
