    updated damage report. Totally f***ed.

    had to hammer and get a pickle fork in between the door and body to get it open. Found out the sheet metal for the door jam is totally caved in (as expected) and the striker is all sorts of out of whack. Luckily I have a section of the drivers side of one of the originally 318is' I bought ears ago still kicking around so I figured best option is to cut a section out of the car and just re-weld it on instead of trying to pull it out and never get it right again. Not excited since it'll be a lot of work but clearly needs it.... Car currently looks really sad with no door or front panels on it. I have to remove the radiator support as well since it is all mangled and the frame is all crooked again... Going to try and make a detachable radiator support just because it would make life easier. I like how easy it is to take an e36 apart so I should make the e30 the same way. I've seen a few setups before that sorta inspired me to do so.

    That's sorta my plan. Going to run a 0.098" HG with a refrshed head and stock bottom end and just a complete reseal and timing case update for the next engine. Probably actually try and get it on a dyno as well so I can make a better tune that the shit I've been running now. But after this engine I might either actually entertain an stock SR swap or go for an M50/52 just for reliability and simplicity.

    I got one last day of driving this year and it gave my car a beating. I have a lot to do this winter now....

    I crashed into my buddy towards the end of the first session since the first car spun and then the second car parked it,.. but the lap before we had a super fun big entry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRHqOC5MhFw But my door and quarter panel are ruined and need to get pulled out thankfully the car had a cage because otherwise the car probably would have been a lot worse than it is now... second session I had no boost after one lap and went in to see why, figured my intercooler pipe popped off but turned out my tranny mount came loose and spun 90 degrees so my tranny was just hanging out there and it popped my intercooler pipe off at the throttle body and broke the intercooler mount. Missed most of that session but got the tranny mount back on with a temporary fix and ratchet strapped the intercooler on so I could still drive the last session. First time driving on a 235/40/17 valino tire and boy are they sticky, my car could barely stay in drift with them it constantly wanted to just straighten up I probably should've bumped the pressure up to like 35 psi cold instead of trying to run them at 30 psi but live and learn I guess.

    So drove a private day last month and our buddy filmed a pretty cool video.

    Sadly I haven't driven or done anything to the car since. I don't know how many more events this engine has because it's dumping oil into the catch can after a couple laps. I think the rings are either cracked or welded to the piston because of the super hot cylinder temps of being 10:1 compression plus 9-10psi for long periods on track. So maybe the next engine I'll do a MLS head gasket but I'm not sure if it'll help or not...

    I agree, it'll be lower soon.

    Thanks! I love them so much perfect fitment and style for the car I got realllllly lucky and found them one night on craiglist for fairly cheap. I have yet to find another set and I want more especially some 17" ones.

    Friends 240 decided to blow up second gear on his first lap out. He changed it though to drive the next day.

    Last picture is my favorite for sure. Took forever but I can finally drive with my friends. Their cars are fast though both of them can pull away from me after a transition but they're also on 235/40/17's and I'm only on some 205/45/16's so they have a lot more grip than me. I think I'm going to try and lower the car a little and run a 215/40/17 in the rear so I can get a little more wheel speed and grip out of the car without needing to cut the body up for fender flares or over fenders....

    Also car did something weird on Friday night and the steering got super hard and it ended up whipping the car around near the bank. I don't know if something is up with the rack or what I swapped out the power steering pump since I had a spare with me and it seemed to work okay after it's still a littl heavy in some spots and doesn't really want to self steer as nicely as it did prior. I might take the Z3 rack out and swap a non-m3 e36 rack into the car and see if it makes a difference is I have another problem with it. Also need to paint the car blue again. I would like to actually paint it some what nice but it'll probably end up being rattle cans again....

    Yeah that one wasn't even too bad I only dropped one wheel I've had both rear wheels off and can hear the bottom of the car dragging the ground, and I wonder why stuff breaks all the time...

    I did more driving though a couple weekends ago.

















    Second to last picture is my favorite, because it looks like I'm going pretty fast with that driver side wheel off the ground slightly haha!

    I'm considering swapping out diffs since I noticed I run out of wheel speed in second for the full track. I'm only on a 205-45-16 but also have a good amount of toe in in the rear for more forward bite and grip. So I don't know if I should try for a shorter rear end and go for third gear around the entire track or try running a bigger tire on a 17 but it's kinda difficult to fit 17's under the stock arches with 0 camber... The 3.73 in the back of my car now works pretty good for second but doesn't have enough for third so I might try and find a 4.10 but that'll make my 1st gear basically useless...
