    Videos are tricky. I do have a tripod, camera and final cut but its hard to film a moving car with a tripod and me in the car. Plus my skills are not at camera level. Maybe if I get a friend to come with me ill be able to toss up some kinda vid. im in no rush tho. im still rockin sport springs. theyre killin me!
    Opps, must have skimmed over that part. My bad. What kind of rear bar is that?


























    Jk. Lol

              anyway, thanks for stoppin by



              kts, I was able to install the rear strut bar first, then the front bar while i put in the coolant gauge sensor. The front bar was a bit tough but i just had to lean on it and it popped in. My problem is that the bar touches the motor. I just did motor and tranny mounts so i know thats where it should be. anyone else have this problem on their IE bar??
              I was at one of the recent CP meets but we didn't actually get to meet. Next time I make it to one of the meets I'll say hi.

              Sounds like you got the strut bar figured out and "adjusted" it a bit. I think it was smart to do that, the bar and engine rubbing would have eventually driven you nuts. Eventually something would have worn through too, although that would have taken a very long time.

              Save up and buy the full coilover setup. If you do the conversion kit down the road you'll want to upgrade to the full setup. So it's cheaper to do it right once, especially if this is going to be a full on track/drift car.

                idk kts, i mean the conversion is alright. i know plenty of guys who bought the conversion kit and they drift lol. I guess if youve got the money, sure get the full thing, but if your on a budget, i dont see anything wrong in getting the kit.

                Comment


                  It honestly makes no difference which route you choose, buying a complete set of GC coilovers or piecing together the exact same coilover works out to about the same price. Only way to really save money is to buy used parts but suspension components are one of those things that I prefer to buy new unless its a hell of a deal.

                  PS, einstein57 is selling a coilover kit for a great deal if you wanna piece a setup together. Theyre custom adjusters with hypercoil springs. Pm him to see if he has any leftover sets from the group buy.

                    Or if youre dead set on GCs. They will prolly sell fast tho.

                      ooohh. thanks for lookin out guys. those rates are a little to soft for me tho
                      Im just gonna save up and get the conversions in a month, brand new. Im just learning and who knows what can happen to me or the car. All I need is stiffer springs all the time. Not so much adjustability. I probably wont even know what im really doing adjusting shit.

                      I rode in an E30 with Bilstein HD's and GC coilover conversion springs right when I got my car and that car was on rails. From ppl ive been talking to on other forums also the stiff spring rates go well with HD shocks. plus the shocks are only like 5 months old.




                      *note: as of tonight the E30 has started its diet.
                      m20 is plenty. im simply a drifter.

                        500f/700r is too soft for you? What rates are you planning on running? On a 500/700 setup, they already recommend revalving your shocks and struts so any stiffer will effect the proper dampening of your ride.

                          well i should rephrase that. I think theyre too soft. ive never ACTUALLY rode in a car with stiff rates.

                          I should give Jeff a call! I need a spring rate to base how stiff i need my set up. all the E30's ive been in i think are just standard HR or some shit

                          500/700 coould work. I just reeally dont want the back to lean and rock so much.
                          I think i heard somewhere that the old track E30's were like 550/700..either way i dont have any E30's to sit passenger and drift.
                          And the one E30 i did drift with tein coilovers felt GREAT but the owner didnt even know what the rates were. it was an eta so i could feel less powa but it slid great
                          m20 is plenty. im simply a drifter.

                            I think youll be quite happy with the 500/700 rates if you plan on drifting your car. Considering your sport spring rates are only 180/380. 500/700 is exponentially stiffer. Also, your current springs are progressive so theyre initially smooth and firm after. Linear springs will feel stiff right of the bat and will take away the body roll feel.

                              Clutch Stop & Eyelids Paint

                              thanks for posting the complete list. ive seen it before but it doesnt really help me in terms of "feel". im still kinda lost.lol

                              and i dont know if it matters to much but i have HD shocks. i like the way they feel over sport springs. either way, I do realize the ideal set up would be valved shocks for my spring rates. but im not at that level yet and 500/700 coilover conversion might do well.
                              I also like the progrssive spring explanation. thanks

                              *UPDATE:
                              small but it goes with the big list of shiznit I ordered a page or so back..
                              got my UUC clutch stop in! its the "big boy" V3.0

                              Its funy cause I was sooooo close to canceling the order when I found they had em on ebay for like $5. But i said hey maybe ill get what I pay for. Sure enough they sent a hockey puck.lol it should hold up great to my clutch kicks and pep up my shifts. im looking forward to driving to work tmrw

                              Also got the can of color match paint. This is going to be for the big ass ding that came on the passenger side of the car. if i ever figure out how to pop it out.
                              But most important, it will paint the eyelids!!

                              this car below has inspired me to not only paint em bronzit like I thought I should, but also to not be so afraid of being a little different. follow MY gut. cause honestly I think the black eyelids looks f'ing wack. except on black & white cars. And once i actually learned what euro grills were, I thought how stupid. It just goes straight across the top. THATS THE DIFFERENCE:dot: I mean yea everyone does it but I think its stupid. like I said, i didnt know the difference for a while. eyelids cover that up anyway so now ill just say i have euro grills.


                              now enjoy this here eye candy:

                              so yea. im paintin it to match. i aallllready know ppl arent going to agree but whatev. ppl on here try to clown bronzit . I love the bronzit because when I go to a meet i dont see a bunch of cars the same color as mine. usually none! its boring blending in with all the rest. Someone at BMW saw that color and said, Yes it has to come in this color also. I thank them.lol

                              cause on some real, white325is just posted pics of his white vert E30 with bright ass wheels. one color in front and another in the back, can u believe it! But i didnt see one person bitch about it being "rice" or say where is this generation going or nothing about it being JDM or leave it for the hondas. why, cause the car is slammed and has a lip. Im not hatin on white325is AT ALL. i like his ride a lot. just sold him my cross brace for his very well made rear strut bar. it just makes me laugh at R3v inconsistency/bipolarism
                              m20 is plenty. im simply a drifter.
