Car hasn't been started in a while, the car has been to three track days since all the work by Lifesgoodracing has been done. Unfortunately the car is overheating when you go above 4000rpm. Narrowed it down to either a head gasket/head issue or as simple as the belt slipping on the water pump. I am going back to motorcycle racing. If you are looking for an E30M3 then you know that this is a sweet deal. $9000 firm, bring a trailer.
