    well,im a fabricator so that answer would be....anything that could be fabbed... provided i have a car for fitment of course.my crystal ball is in the shop lol.no price on M's until i can slide under one.if BMW was foolish enough to overlook that and the subframes are the same, it should be pretty damn close.

    easy.i attached a pic of the last bike build i did @ my previous day job (until the economy nose dived and someone got sorta "shoved" into their own business by becoming graciously unemployed lol).spent a little over a year on that thing.regardless, it's an example of the sort of things i'm capable of/attention to detail...can't hide anything in that business,especially for the $312k that ended up costing the guy.i have spent between then and now providing the 4th gen supra community with goodies/etc.i do exhaust,rollcages from scratch,engine/turbo system building/tuning...well,pretty much everything but paint and bodywork.

    so
    just to clarify, it's rear subframe (all 4?) bushings as well as special diff mounts and bracing?


    or is it a 'we'll find out soon enough Click here to enlarge )?

    if they're rsf bushings, i won't bother getting powerflexes then, if these are better with no more nvh?

    You need a bigger picture for a $312k build to show off!

    I just want your wheel hop kit and a driveshaft loop and I'm happy.

    yeah,powerflexes help,but do not solve the problem.your barking up the right tree with the first bit(and you shall find out soon enough).it's all 6061 T-6 aluminum,the nvh bit has been discussed earlier in thread. there isnt any to speak of in all of the testing ive done so far,and i don't expect that it will be a complaint as long as your subframe to body bushings remain stock.

    sounds good

    i'm also talking about http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BMW-E87-1...0572c9e&_uhb=1 - just to make sure we're on the same page Click here to enlarge

    ohkay, well i'll keep my eye on anythign posted about this, so i can find out exactly what it is, and if i want to buy it Click here to enlarge

    I'm also guessing this is more of something for the guys that go to the 1/4 mile/launch their cars, more than a circuit guy?

    Ah, a counter offer...in that case, I'll settle for the diff brace piece, since I have Powerflex diff bushings already! Click here to enlarge


    PS, I'm 99.99999% the M3 diff bushings and # of mounting points (3) are the same as the 335, as the M3 bushings were explored by some of the 335 guys as an upgrade, and they were found to be identical. If it's at all helpful, here's a diagram of the M3 subframe from RealOEM...

    it's good for any incarnation of racing or street use.final test fitting has been scheduled for the 26th,production will begin shortly thereafter.expect to see them becoming available next month,the kits will include instructions and necessary hardware. also,i have not tested nvh with those actual subframe bushings in the link,i would assume that they would increase nvh regardless of whether or not the diff kit was installed if these chassis react the same to those bushings as other irs cars i'm accustomed to...

    Doylestown,PA(bucks county)...about an hour north of philly.if the posted parts diagram of the rear subframe by defactoM6 is accurate,then it would possibly require modifications to just one bracket to compensate for the finned M diff cover. Im actually shocked that BMW would have overlooked that and used the 335 style of mounting...puzzling.you'd think they would've known better in that application.PM me if you want to work out details

    do you have a one or two piece driveshaft? obviously you'll want bolt in;NHRA mandates the driveshaft loop must be within 6" of the back of the front driveshaft joint,so perhaps something that bolts in using the existing crossmember bolts if the layout permits.looks like an M will be around soon enough for further inspection into the matter...stay tunedClick here to enlarge
    if you google "roll-x trike" you'll get all kinds of images to check out

    So just this nut is all that is holding it? I am not attacking your design, just curious.

    What grade hardware are you using?

    that picture is of the factory rear driver's side mount bolt and factory nut which has a locking style built in washer on that particular nut. If you go back and look closely at the original pic i posted,that assembly is the largest bushing and the large flat piece is it's interlocking end cap.those two peices are interlocking,you can see the raised portion of the bushing that mates to the rear piece.the end cap is also recessed to accept the factory hardware with proper thread engagement.the pieces that aren't shown are for the other side,that's where nothing existed in factory form and the x grade hardware is employed,it's not shown intentionally,as stated previously it will be shown after application patent is applied for(next month). If you've ever had an idea or design ripped off before, you could sympathize with my cautious approach at dumping the whole thing online for the taking before i've had a chance to start production. I have two of those instances under my belt, i'm taking care this time to avoid a 3rd. I apologize for any confusion that may be causing. the whole enchilada will be available for viewing/owning pleasure shortly.stock hardware has to be used in factory mounting zones due to special hardware used by BMW,changing that would negate the whole "bolt-in" approach,also factory bolt strength becomes less of a concern when all diff movement is eliminated and spread equally.long winded,but hopefully that answers any current questions in regards to thatClick here to enlarge

    it is a replacement for all factory diff bushings plus an additional support apparatus which is not shown,not the subframe to chassis,correct
