    I got a little more work done tonight before I had to leave. I finished the power steering lines and mounted the hard motorsport mounting brackets. I will finish the install up when I come back tomorrow, that shouldnt take much time at all. The kit is really easy to install and definitely a necessity to anyone who plans on tracking their car. The hard motorsport backing plates are the best I have seen, covering the entire rotor.

    Bimmerworld carbon fiber center gauge panel
    Oil temp, water temp, oil pressure gauges
    Long tube headers
    Single 3" exhaust
    New rear shock mounts
    Stiffer springs
    New ground control camber plates (current ones are kind of old)
    Taking the heater core and EVAP out this weekend
    Installing the EVO II track splitter this weekend

    Lots more, but it will be next year probably. It's going to be a never ending project. I hope to start making all my own stuff to reduce the cost at some point.

    I dont NEED it, but I think I can handle it. The exhaust is more for weight savings than power. I will probably wait until the winter break to do it though.

    Thanks! We had it made by a local company for around $2500. It has ramps that extend out of the back so we can drive the car right on up.

    I'm interested in a similar trailer but probably doesn't make sense to get it from a company so far away. Good price though...

    I'll start looking around, $2500 is perfect.

    Edit: $2200 including tax. Awesome deal, especially for a quality trailer. They even added an extra bar for the towing straps.

    Checking all the fluids again before the first session.

    Had a whole lot of understeer this session. I guess that was the result of adding the massive hotchkis front swaybar.

    Luckily, the guys from Autobahn South were there to work their magic on the car. Handled perfectly after some tweaking.

    Click here to enlarge

    Decided to start out in the back and work my way up. That was a bad decision, because I ended up getting stuck behind 6-7 cars.

    Finally getting to pass some of the cars

    And a video of the last session:



    I feel like I spent 70% of the time stuck behind people and 30% of the time driving. Oh well, I still learned a whole lot from my instructor.

    So what are you going to do to eliminate it?

    Autobahn south fixed the problem. Thats what is happening in that picture of them working on the car. They have a garage at the track.

    Just started taking the dash out. I'm going to move my switches to the center panel, remove the heater core, and clean up the wiring. Seems like its going to be a real pain to get all of it done though.
