it is going to be used purely for gravel rallies. when i say gravel there are lots of small rocks, pot holes and the odd jump, it is pretty rough and the car needs to be as heigh as possible as it will bottom out. the first one i competed in split my sump

Reiger suspension would be very good but cost about 4 times more than the car has cost. i fitted e36 m3 springs to the rear which has kept it a good height and stiffened it up a bit. i have just pulled an e36 328i apart and will fit the springs off that onto the bilstein front shocks i have and will see how that works out.
The scrutineer passed it for its passport inspection tonight so it is now officially a rally car.
i am keen to use it on its first event with the 1900cc engine then see about fitting the 328i engine into it. the last one i did was only about 5kg heavier with the 6 cylinder aluminium engine rather than the 4 cylinder steel engine

unfortunately i was rushing to pull the engine out the diner car and forgot to disconnect the power steering pipes and spilt oil all over the drive so tomorrows job after work is to find a place to put all the goodies removed from the 328i, dump what is left and clean up the drive.

our scrutineering is real strict in the US. Cage needs to be FIA (whatever numbers). basically a jungle gym.

my rx7 and my gf's 2002. Don't have a good interior pic of the 2002 handy.

couldn't resist this e30, it is very clean and low mileage (not that it has an engine) i can't wait to get started on it, i have bought a sump off a m40 so that i can fit the m42 from the compact in it, and it came with a multi point cage and plastic windows.

i needed to do something with the suspension so i dug the old bilsteins out but couldn't fit them because they had lowering springs and i wanted to stay at standard ride height so i cut the old spring support off and fitted some adjustable height collars and fitted 350lb 10" springs, when fitted the car was far to heigh at the front
i then removed the struts and dropped the mounting point 50 mm and fitted the springs without the adjustable height collar
this was drying after a coat of satin black. the height is now 10mm higher than it was standard which i am happy with, at the back i have fitted bilstein shocks and e36 m3 springs which have raised its height slightly. i have re fitted the front anti roll bar but left the rear one off. it drives very nice on the road, much better than before and it feels much more stable with the anti roll bar. i have a gravel rally coming up so it will be interesting how it handles the bumps and rocks.

i fitted bilstein struts with 350lb 10" springs on the front with m3 springs on the rear with bilstein shocks, i have put the front anti roll bar back on as i thought i can always remove a drop link an try it without. it will be used on gravel and dusty concrete so very little grip, there is also stones and small rocks so that is why i am keeping it heigh.
all stickers up now as it will be competing in its first rally in 9 days. i just need to fit the correct seats, harnesses and intercom from the other car and set the tracking
