    Still waiting on stuff for the intake side before I finish it all up and go for startup!

    Thanks Cam!

    Thought this was cool and would like to share...http://www.buckeyebmwcca.org/buckeye...ber%202009.pdf

    right now the car is about 70% disassembled for paint and finish work. It will come back looking awesome. I'll have pics when there is something that is worth showing.

    Hey, it was cheap and much better than nothing. Kevin might weld it solid, if we feel like it would be worth it.

    Not really, the e30 towers are greater in angle then the e36s so the hinges have less of an effect, and transfers most of the force directly.

    Well, the car is long from being done... I had to get it together somewhat to do the initial testing... NOW, I have all but completely torn the car down (or at least as far as I am willing to given the timeframe I have to work with) and getting the finish work done. When we were doing the alignment, we found out even though I had adjusters that basically they didn't allow enough movement to get rid of toe out. So, I had to modify the mounts to gain back some adjustment. I am basically hoping that I have put in the correct amount of toe, and that will be the end of it... we'll see. While talking with some e30 racers during the test and tune, some told me of an issue with the rear subframe basically tweaking and gaining toe out... so, I made a sort of truss to reduce the possibility of this happening to a minimum. Also, I did the M coupe update to the control arms... cause I could. I still have some disassembly and quite a bit of sanding to do prior to dropping off to the painter. Which will be at the first of the year (hopefully). So on to the pics...

    Right on dude looks like shes coming along nicely!

    Whats the bars under the arms welded to the subframe? Not familiar with that one. Those adjusters look like a lot more adjustment than some of the other ones ive seen on the market. You cant get it squared away with those or are those the new ones?

    Cant wait to see in all one color and im sure you feel the same!

    the bars under the arms are there to try to prevent unwanted subframe flexing causing toe out under load and power. Basically a truss to work in compression. The adjusters are a different version of what Ireland Engineering has available. The sent them to me over a year ago. The problem was that when installed, I could get more toe out... but not get toe in (or even 0 toe) I have them pre installed now with what I think will be some amount of toe in. My only concern is maintenance of the bolts or adjusting the arms. That will be a lot more difficult now.

    Yes, I can't wait to get it all painted! The engine bay will be a hot rod black type thing. Don't wanna take away from the engine

    Thanks Chris!

    OMG have you seen all the fab and prep work that Kevin has done since our test at the end of October?? I might add that, during that test, I did have wheelspin in 4th gear and did humble a 996 turbo that was on Hoosiers...

    By any chance, do you know who the guy was driving that red e30 m3 after you passed the 996?

    I have an idea, but I'm not for sure. I think it has a big scrape on the right end of the rear bumper. I remember being at the event when that car touched a wall, but can't remember who it was. PM me if you have a name and I can probably confirm it for you if you're interested.

    Sadly, car is completely stripped and waiting on the painter to get it in. I have sanded and prepped and everything... Currently sitting on the ugliest 15" wheels I have

    I have made improvements in many areas... but nothing will show until I put it all back together. So for now... there isn't much to show or talk about unfortunately.

    I can't wait to get it all put back together and start the new year of testing/tuning. But I must be patient.

    Well I got it back from the paintshop and the re build process is well underway! Still lots to do, but with any luck in a couple of weeks it will be all done again!

    Please disregard the mess... I've been BUSY!
