BMW NA to conduct tech deep dive on the evolution of the BMW Limited Slip Differential with actual engineers!
May 19th, 2015

M Performance Parts Tech Session!

BMW of North America is coming out to Bimmerfest this year and will be leading a tech session at 11:00 AM and again at 12:00 PM discussing the evolution of the BMW Limited Slip Differential with actual engineers! A description of the tech session is below:

BMW has always been obsessed with sporty driving dynamics. From the early days of the Neue Classe, one of the things that has been key in making BMWs handle and respond to driver input like they do has been the Limited Slip Differential. BMW NA Engineer Zdravko Miric and BMW M Performance Parts Manager Jake Mooney come to Bimmerfest West to give insight on the origins of the Limited Slip, and how it has evolved into what we see today in the M3, M4, M5 and M6. In addition, they will highlight BMWs commitment to making all BMW vehicles as dynamic as possible with the addition of the M Performance Limited Slip Differential that can be added to normal Series Cars.

Zdravko Miric has been interested in mechanical systems from an early age. In High School, Zdravko started an apprenticeship with Cadillac when most kids were barely learning to parallel park at age 16. From there, Zdravko pursued a Mechanical Engineering degree at NJIT and is about to complete his Masters in Mechanical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. Zdravko has held a number of positions with BMW, and most recently has moved to the Senior Accessory Development Engineer position where he works with the sales side to develop local product for the US market and homologate product that is imported from Germany. He is also working with LAP Motorsports LLC to develop the MINI Racing program in the Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge. Zdravko is also a big motorsports enthusiast and works on a number of vehicles he owns personally.

Jake Mooney grew up in a BMW centric family, and he continues to have a passion for the brand today. Although not classically trained, he has been working on and modifying BMWs for years. Pursuing an International Business degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Jake was always interested in working for the brand and first found an opportunity with BMW Financial Services. In his current role, Jake manages, promotes and markets M Performance Parts as well as BMW Motorsport Parts in the US. He works closely with counterparts in BMW AG (Germany) as well as his colleagues in engineering in the US to develop and bring to market new M Performance Parts. He is also working on a 1986 BMW 535i that he hopes to run in HPDEs and autocross this year.
