    Eventhough you have LSD diff, it still doesn't have nearly enough locking power to move 3000+lb car when the other side has zero resistance. So all it can do is slip the clutches while giving tiny bit of motion.

    When looking at your video it reminded exactly what I had and filmed, but on passanger side. I wanted to say I had this happen to me few months ago, but looking at the date of my post it was almost a year ago https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...7#post29845457

    Are you going for a 210mm diff? Considered a ford8.8 swap instead? Custom Axles aren’t cheap but long term it will probably be cheaper and lighter

    Thank you man, comments and feedback like that make the build all that much better! Especially considering I too was a lurker for a while before my build!


    I am going 210mm, i sourced and have a EVO e36 210mm diff and subframe on the way, will be running that along with all poly bushings, hoping to get that next week and hope to have her back up and running before the end of oct.

    The plan will be

    Drop rear end
    remove bushings from doner m3 evo rear end
    have parts sent off to be sand blasted/powdercoated
    install new bushings
    install new rear end
    SEND IT

    LOL i do remember that video, what did you end up doing after that? 210mm or replace the axles?

    ya that makes sense, i knew the sticky tires would cause problems, Honestly I was expecting at LEAST a few pases before that happened, not on the first launch lol . oh well
