Rather large rear rotors... what is the calliper piston volume?? surely there is a need for a different proportioning valve with those on there? or have you got an adjustable one fitted?

waiting until i take it to the track to see if i need that, I've bought myself a cheap little laser temp gauge and I guess we'll see how Ceika did with they're recommendation

so, had a track day, car seems to be (same lap times) as fast an a 3.0 m3 e36

i was about 1.5 seconds faster than when it was stockThere were 2 e36 M3's there. A 3.2 and 3.0L

I was having massive trouble with my traction control, seem my rears are slightly smaller than the fronts, not a problem on the street but at the track it was on 90% of the lap an it was robbing all my power.

Fixed that by disconnecting the ABS

So my long track times are as good as useless but short track was much better thanks to no traction control. Down side was i lost abs and stability control thingy. My fastest lap time i locked up and over shot the hairpin plus various other lock ups around the track, So i believe it can go quite a lot faster again if i wasn't such a faeces driver.

In saying that i got the same time as the 3L m3 and .8 of a second slower than the 3.2. Not bad considering T/C issues and the fact this is a 4 speed auto and no LSD

M3's had suspension work and track pad's, plus both had aftermarket bucket seat, I'm still using big ass (heavy electric lounge chairs)

So much for not having a chance against M3'S

Just for info, stock brakes were more than competent for 3 laps

Is that an E-Stop at the right rear door? :whistle:

Heya,
Nice front mc struts!
Just wondering was anyone else thinking how the top shock mounts would be coping with the weight of the car on it?

Just my thought: these mounts were made to react shock absorber forces, not the (much greater) vertical suspension forces...
Keep an eye on the spot-welds around the mount and general cracks

An external auto trans cooler wouldn't go astray. Put it BEFORE the radiator, so it cools the fluid, then the radiator puts it back up to 80-90 degrees. I would also recommend Amsoil synthetic fluid (keeps temps down a bit) and, if not already installed, a shift kit.

Is the auto a 722.5 or 722.6? The c36 had both, early(722.5) and late(722.6) didn't they? or were some 722.3's?
