      My engine swap might have to take a back burner to this little bit of video gear.

      You have to watch this video example for the Phantom 2, Zenmuse Gimbal, and GoPro Hero3 Black:

      Great example of car applications

      Between my motorized slider, GoPro, GlideCam, and drone/gimbal setup, I'd have to start charging people for video shoots.

        I was just using that as an easy to picture reference. I built a muffler of similar design from spare exhaust tubing and a new truck muffler case I had sitting around and I just wanted a little confirmation I wasn't turning into a ricer or something before I hacked off most of the spare tire well. :D The next dilemma resides in the fact my early car would be displaying the entirety of the muffler if I don't weld on a late valence.

        Two best options I'm seeing at the moment:
        Spec stage 1 clutch & IE Flywheel : $780
        Bimmerworld Clutchmaster Organic stage 1 & JB Flywheel: $760

        Anybody have any experience with these items?
        I haven't used spec for my bmw but I thoroughly enjoy the spec I put in my trans am. It was exactly like factory weight just so much more grip when I needed it.

          More is NOT always better!
          That. Is. Ridiculous.

            Only issues I saw was the speedo doesn't work, and the check engine light is on. Or maybe it just said service. I'm not familiar with those cars. I'm going to have it inspected before I buy it, if I have to throw a couple grand at it for maintenace I think it's worth it.

            Having a modern bmw as a daily and driving my e30 as a fun car is one the best things you can do IMO.

              No way, e30's way cheaper too maintain. We're just gonna keep the e28 and e30 it's a better investment and more reliable car. New bmw's are a bad idea if rather have a corolla or a civic if I didn't daily my e30

                Spec clutch in my experience wore out prematurely on the PP side, I'm running Clutch Masters in my car now

                  Anybody have any experience with itb's my buddy's going to help me build a set. I'm thinking triumph tb's would work well since I can run two sets. And they are cheap.

                          :yawn:

                          Incorrect. Having an E28 as a daily, and an E21 as weekender is the best thing.

                            Still wrong. E28 and e30 that wants to be an e21. Daily both.

                              It's just a little 12v at least it's easier to fix than you 24v
