    On a traditional E36 (meaning...

    Just to clarify, I never went backwards on course. I went about 50' past the intended cutoff road, realized the banner tape was over the intended route of travel, and made a straight line across the...

    Dave - are your rear springs on the shock bodies (coil overs) or are they in the OEM location?

    I'm running 300f 200r on my e36 hatch (coil overs in the rear).

    I was car 25 or something on the road, and I screwed it up as well. Came around the top of the loop (at 3 o'clock position on the map) or so and knew I needed to keep going right...but someone had...

    WRC also has a bunch more pro drivers and more teams that are very well funded that run maximum attack all the time. 100% agreed the 34mm is fine for the average guy, but now that we're seeing WRC...

    I am concerned about events/roads being lost because one or two cars are too fast in a field of 50+. Maybe 'tighter competition' wasn't the best choice of words, but slowing down cars has been the...

    Rob, adding more chicanes slows down everybody too, just as a potential change to fuels allowed would likely do to a small degree. I don't see one or the other being bad, its just that to keep the...

    I figured that could be the case (impacting lower level competitors more than the pointy end teams), but thought that it might actually slow down the big budget teams too. Sorta makes Grant's...

    Agreed it's available at the pump (most places), but if it's banned in the rule book, people can't legally use it when racing with that particular series. How is that any more difficult than banning...

    C'mon Rob, now you're just being silly. Obviously the rules would need to restrict the use of E85 and other specialty fuels. E85 isn't universally available, and if I wanted to play the 'lets look...

    Mid 90s BMW E36. Choices from mild (318 ~140hp) to wild enough (M3 ~240hp). There are some known chassis weak points, but because of the big enthusiast (mostly track & auto-x) market, many shops...

    How about a the more simple G2 BMW out west that's won two events overall? Granted those events didn't have the huge budget teams in attendance, but I think that car's got a pretty stockish engine...
