    The white e30 is the one car to serve all purposes.

    Last weekend I drove 250km to a drift event, then drove home. 8 wheels + a lot of tools all shoved into the little e30.
    I mounted the tires by hand as usual












    Fast forward a week and it is now sitting on the meatiest tires it has ever seen. 225/45r16s.
    Auto-X double header this weekend



    Some persuasion was required

          Some kind people took some nice photos of the car at Auto-X this weekend.

















          I've also started mocking up a hydro handbrake that should be for the most part quite well hidden. I know most people like it between the wheel and the gear lever, but I want keep the cable handbrake while not bumping my long legs or elbow off a master cylinder.


          I will be making an adjustable pushrod and will ultimately mount the master beneath the handbrake surround panel. That will give as linear a stroke as possible, once I manage to bleed it.




          I can then return the original handbrake back to stock.

              Found the breaking point for the OEM diff mount.
              Over the winter I'll be beefing up the rear and fitting an e36 medium case dual mount cover.











              Prior to the loud bang I had found some more wheels
              It was the sticky tires and a dirty 3rd gear clutch kick that ultimately killed it lol






              The grey car is coming around though

                        Thanks. Yeah, the thing is fantastic. The handling, the power, it all just works so well as a package.

                          To fit the 225/45r16s with the Pontiac wheels? Yes, I had to roll/massage the lip as flat as possible then add an extra pair of spring pads in the rear to raise it more, since the adjustable spring perches were maxed out.

                          I find the big rubber mallet to work well once the lip is partially rolled already
