600HP BMW M2 Comp Shines with AP Racing by Essex ENP Brake Kit07.20.2023
While the automotive press may be abuzz over the new G87 chassis, BMW's earlier M2 is still going strong in the hands of HPDE and track day enthusiasts. Builds like this one offer strong evidence that the F87 party is far from over! Our client M2CNemo is pushing close to 600whp in his 2020 M2 Competition, thanks to upgraded turbos from Full Race, flex fuel by Bend Calibration, a custom SPL and Nitron R1 suspension, all knitted skillfully together by our authorized reseller OG Shark Motorsports in Texas.
With that level of thrust available on the straightaways, slowing 3500 lbs. effectively and repeatedly, lap after lap, becomes increasingly difficult. Thankfully, our AP Racing by Essex Radi-CAL Competition Brake Kits are built specifically for this sort of abuse and more than up to the challenge.
To say that Chris is active on the HPDE circuit is a bit of an understatement! He's on pace to run 30 events just this year, and has the following feedback after putting our Competition Brake Kits through their paces extensively on-track:
