Grab a couple cases of Canuck beer and go trollin' for a couple "weight-challenged" heffers. Stuff one in the front seat and the other in the back!!!!!!!!!! /images/graemlins/carrot /images/graemlins/carrot /images/graemlins/carrot :smooch:

Problem is they will drink all my beer.

Thanks for the technical advice SNAKBIT!

Any other words of wisdom......anyone........anyone? :lolcry:

I was kinda hoping you'd drop in on this one SB.
But I was also hoping you would have something useful to add :slap:
Tracy...Are we talking aggressive street and mild to moderate track? What's your budget...like I need to ask /images/graemlins/laughing.gif

Mild track Gerald, you know the way I drive.............I think I'm at the track where ever I go.
How's your setup by the way?
Your RT.........was it lowered last time I was down? I'm thinking, yes.

Well, I run Eibachs, with my Koni's one and a half turns up front and one half turn in the back...32 psi in the front tires and 26 psi in the rears

My alignment specs are:

Front Camber -1.8
Rear Camber -1.3
Front Toe is +1/8
Rear Toe is +1/4
Castor 6.0


Took me two four hour sessions to dial in those specs to perfection...Pulling your sport shims will allow you to dial the front in easier.

I cut my coils. People seem to be against that these days, but there's nothing wrong with it if you do it right. 2 coils front, 1coil back dropped my car 1 1/2" on average. Looks NASTY! Front spoiler is less that 2" off the ground. This will also increase your spring rate to almost that of the eibachs, and you lose some progressiveness. I dialed 1 turn on my konis front and rear, but my rear is too tight. My friend whos been racing Beemers for 20 years suggested going full 1 1/2 up front, but the ride is already rough on the street, so I'll probably drop to 1/2 turn on the rear instead. Look at SnakeBitten's setup. He's also trying to compensate for all that torque.

If I was going to do it again, I'd go with the 1/2" lowering caps first. This may be enough for you to get that look without having to go to stiffer springs. Don't forget the allignment.

Good luck. I know its hard to get good tech on this site.

Tracey - stop in at Archers on your way down - sit in a chair and botch at their work for an hour - poof - done...

(that is what I did anyways...)

Also had to get the chin guard on - you'd be amazed at the shit you scrape on that you never thought twice about before...

I've got nearly the exact same configuration as Snake Bitten and really enjoy it. Many complain about the rough or bouncy ride in the Eibachs, but I feel that's because of an even balance of improper settings and subjective opinion. I *like* feeling the road.
