Good man. Congrats glad it's running correctly.
Also are those are PFR5-507s back there, correct? (I was a US schmiedmann rep for a short time) Placing poly in there will make the rear end a bit stiffer than oem bushings.
I have them and been riding on them for two years without one bit of failure or fatigue.

I love the PU bushings, it was a no brainer.. Made install super easy!


I really can feel the difference.. I want to replace as many things like this as i can to give the chassis its liveliness back..!

Im starting to see just how awsome this car is.

So I made my first nitrous pass on the new motor today, i found i still have a clunking with enough load but not from normal driving..

It just won't go away!

I created an excel file for mine, but I stopped counting spent money after the (first) supercharger install

....and not sure if I want to know how much I have really spent.

You should probably try and keep up on that, one day you may wanna know!

Although i completely understand how hard it is to see it all laid out.. Its also been projected that the rough estimate for just your 2nd supercharger set up is north of my entire car...

Care to comment? Haha..


Id lick your tires clean for your old S/C fyi.. Haha

Something about a gold mesh rim on a black and / or white car that's just classy.
As long as its gold painted not gold plated.

Thanks guys,


I think when i mount the slicks in back it will be a touch more subtle.. Especially once the car takes off..


I just dont wanna have super weird looking mix matched rims at the track.. Cost 15$ to do..

BMW Adds a little class to racing, to make up for my lack there of!


PS- style 7's are OG as Fck..

So G. some P just can't understand it!

They better.. 24.5 tall is inch smaller that stock tire hieght, its 8" wide witch is equal to the width of the stock rim for the car im using and about equal to a stock width tire..

This being the #1 size for the serious FWD guys its about as small as slicks get.. They came from a low 12 sec SRT4 infact

It should have plenty of room!


Fontana speedway re opens next month after 3 years of building a sound wall..

So the 1/4 mile is back soon!!! Thats what its all about.. Of coarse ill video it!
