Oops - my eyes weren't working earlier, I thought he was asking about the link I posted.

My mistake.

I don't have a facebook. I will be happy to check it out though. Is this car in Formula D? Has anyone seen the Red Baron?

I've only done a few drift events with my car and drive it a decent amount on the street to and from school / work / ect. But it is still a drift car.
Here's a picture of it two weeks ago at clubloose.

A33 by Pat_Landor, on Flickr

- Bone stock 150,000+ miles M42 with a T25 off an SR20det at 8 psi for the time being. Low temp thermostat and new water pump.

- Using Megasquirt 2 V3.0, Does everything I need it to do. (except idle control I can't seem to get mine to work)

- Custom made ground control "bastard kit" coilovers, 550# springs up front 600# in the rear, ground control camber/caster plates, e36 non-m3 knuckles, e46 control arms, 318ti 5 lug swap in the rear.

- only using tie rod spacer and honestly have plenty of lock, eventually I'll run modified 36 knuckles just not anytime soon.

- Getrag 240, 3.73 welded medium case diff (looking to get a 4.10), stock M20 flywheel/clutch/pressure plate

- Running a hydro using the SRS design dual caliper braket and a ebay handle. Works okay I have a leaky line though so one bits more than the other and the pads are general auto parts store garbage. I don't use the handbrake a whole lot I like to flick with a clutch kick but I'm sure I'll use it more once I drive faster.

- Up front I achillies ATR sport tires 205-45-16 they're a little small fore the 16x8 style 5 but it fits in the wheel well nicely. in the back I have the same tires for driving on the road but when drifting I use garbage although I'm probably going to try out federals 595 in the rear since everyone likes them.

24v and turbo is a lot of fun. I got to slide my buddy's turbo s52 with 400whp and that was a BLAST. it wasnt setup for drifting, but it was still wicked fun. I like my coils a lot. awesome to slide on and not terrible to drive with. If you're wanting to do more than 3 or 4 hours, you'll start to feel it but otherwise theyre great. I'm on 12psi right now and i would think i'm close to 300 at the wheels but I have no idea for sure, hopefully i'll be hitting up a dyno day soon

I will see if I can get 'Red Baron' to post his set-up here. He's running s54 turbo (yes he is in the 1000hp club)

I wish I could decide on a motor build. Any suggestions guys??
There is a m52b28 that I could obtain for cheap. I keep thinking that I should stroke it with m54b30 internals and in the future when I need power, I am kinda lost. Don't want to just MLS something with that high cR.
m20b25 turbo is also a choice. If I run this route I would replace the front rocker arms as well.
Of course there is the m50.
I like the idea of using something that wouldn't require standalone (OBD turbo tuning). But I am of course happy with buying a MS.

I am already attempting to blow apart my 4.10 so I can justify sourcing a 2.93 or 3.15.

Anyone know what I can do to reduce wheel hop on forward bite? I assume its due to a well beaten m20 fighting tires. It mainly an issue at launch.

Suspension Set-Up:
Bilstein B6 HD + Reinforcement Plate Rear
Votgland Spring (I'm buying BCs for the new year! 10k/12k sound fair?)
Condor Speed Shop Rear Subframe 12mm kit.. RTAB, Diff.

Just incase of the rear disc causing this issue, they have been replaced with Brembo OE slicks and Hawk HPS pads.

I am guessing that it may be an alignment issue, along with cheapo tires. So I will be also using the Garagistic alignment kit.

I am hoping with stiffer springs and a good rear alignment and some cheap all season new(?) tires (just so I can start feeling more consistent)

Will this help or should I start looking at rear sway bar refresh for helping wheel hop? ... Or horsepower?

The honest issue is probably me being 'preservative' with my loved e30.

-------------------------------------------------------
Also, I have a slight miss mostly below 1200 rpm under load. It is missing around 5000-5500 but when warm? I will be changing plugs. Coolant temp sensor. CPS. Cleaning the MAF. If that doesn't help I will probably go ahead and jump on the MS2 PNP kit, for diagnostics. And check fueling, of course.

Another update, I was quoted 120$ to have my driveshaft rebuilt with 1310 joints. Just posting my struggles for advice. Cheers!

Just an update to the miss. My crank position sensor was loose. I don't assume this would cause this issue.

And if I am correct the 1.3 doesn't read MAF signal at the 5k rpm area?

Another thing I have been wanting to kinda plan for is the e46 control arm swap.

Anyone know what tire width and offset fits well? I am aware the track is widened. Just curious. I am planning on using the stock E30 hubs and running e34 tie rod centers? I can do this without using e30 M3 or E36 spindles? i.e. Remain on a 4x100 set-up? I only ask before I order and weld coils.

Thanks again any poor fellow who is bored enough to read and reply!
