Hello you dirty creatures,
My name is Nick, checking-in from Tasmania!
After a couple of years rallying a Mazda 323 4WD Turbo way back in the early 00s, the bug has finally bitten hard enough for me to consider another foray onto the dirt!!
This time, I'm thinking something FAR less scary than the grp A Mazda was! Cheap, cheerful, RWD fun... all the things the Mazda truly wasn't!!
Cue a BMW E36 323i sedan!
The plan is to get a 200k mileage E36, bolt-in a cage, seats, mudflaps, and the necessary safety equipment... and thats about it!
The 323i engine has enough power for a bit of fun, and there are quite a few suitable cars in Tasmania for little money!
We aren't looking to set any fastest stage times, or upset the 4WDs... just to have some sideways fun in the scrub!!
I'll be lurking around, watching a few build threads, and generally gathering advise and ideas for when the build eventually starts... However, I need to actually find a car first!!
