    That difference in sidewall is going to be quite nice.

    The fenders look really nice in the back, the car looks aggressive as hell. How much did the widen them in the back, what exactly was done to make them fit?

    I agree, but it still hasnt raped the older brother e36 powered cars in the 1/4 mile. I'm still impressed dont get me wrong. OP you just rolled the fenders to make them fit or what? Btw car looks like a power WHORE, and I like that.

    Geez man get over your hard on for the E36. Why do you mention how much better the E36 is in every thread?

    Its weird, with the E46 people are making the power first then traction. With the E36 it took a very long time for the power to increase, lots of time to figure out traction issues. Also every fast E36 is in the East Coast, where there are ideal 1/4 mile tracks! If i lived in the East, we would have some record 1/4 mile times already. Im open to run any street E36 car btw...

    My fenders were rolled and shaved off almost entirely on the inside to get these to fit. So far, full traction 2nd and up in 25psi mode. I have not tried race gas and 30+psi yet but the tires are awesome!

    Any pics of that fab work? Do not try and look innocent you have weeped over the fact they have made great passes on vairous tracks. I do respect the work you have had done to your car. My comment above was basically a comment pushing you to the track to see what the power whore can do. It shouldnt be taken as an insult.

    Wow the car looks very mean. Do you have any concerns in terms of cornering and does the car feel unstable at all under slight bends.

    Weeped? If i had tracks like that in my backyard I would have times as well. Its not that easy... Especially when my car is more of a street car then drag car. Next step is breaking vbox records, after that it will be 1/4 mile unfortunately at a not so comparable to MIR, ATCO track.

    Don't have the will? You have to be dedicated and put in some work to back claims and reap the rewards.

    I have made the drive 4 times, no big deal. I even get a discount at the same motel I use now, woot.

    Ya, will. I'm more interested in work, family and gf at the moment. Don't have much to put into the car or else I would have numbers. Unfortunately afterany years the car is more of a on and off passion for me. But I plan on doing some stuff soon for sure now that I have a good tire setup.

    I'm in for Sac Vic. I'm sure Drew and a few others are down to. We can make a weekend trip out of it and bring the GF's.

    One request though, can I go first and hopefully Click here to enlarge get high 10's before you get low 10's? I wouldn't mind holding the record for just a few minutes at least Click here to enlarge

    Did you just say you are more interested in your gf than driving up to Sacremento to set a record?

    Would someone please slap Taza? If your gf does not have giant fake knockers and is like an 11 out of 10 no excuses. If she is an 11 out of 10 and does have giant fake knockers can you introduce me?

    Down bro! I was thinking about trailering up though. If something breaks up there it's not good.

    Lol I don't care bro you can have the 10 second record!

    Lol man I would agree if this was 4 years ago. GF comes before car now lol. The car is just a hobby to me. Don't worry, the car will be tested soon! Next weekend I can hopefully get some 60-130 numbers.

    Well I havent seen Taza make a pass, but I have seen him comment on alot of threads where others have made passes. I would love to see what that power whore of a setup will do as I'm sure everyone wants to see. Consider it a friendly push to get him to the track. As for myself I live in a city where a car is not needed for transportation, and my car is located about 25 miles from me at my house. Batta if you have a vbox mail it over and i'll do a pass for you. I only get to drive my car maybe 3-4 times a month. Back to the topic now Taza I dont blame you for wanting to trailer it to the track. I always see other breaking parts at the track. Parts like diff's, axles, and driveshafts. Have you upgraded any of those parts? I would also make a day of it with the girl friend. Getting her involved will make her want to go. Ask her to man the video camera while you rape it down the track. I'm telling you that trick will work. Good luck and I look foward to seeing the car down the 1/4 mile.

    How did you get the clearance? I'm assuming you cut the inside lip.. did you finish it with a roller like the eastwood?

    I'm going to need to roll mine for more clearance as well, I'm curious how you did it.
