    That's the problem, for sure. You are overheating the outsides of the tires because the car is toed-in in the front and it's pushing on entry.

    It's time to forget all about those factory specs. ...

    Right, what I meant to say was, if you are going for all out performance, pound them on quickly and deal with breakage afterwards. You probably won't need to change anything, but you could and if...

    Truthfully, it matters what your intentions are. If you are trying to win a race at all costs, just bang them on and don't be afraid of over torquing them. Expect to change studs after the race. ...

    Longer belts that stretch more would lengthen the time of negative acceleration and lessen the force on the body. They could save your life in an inelastic collision such as straight into a wall. It...

    Be careful what you wish for. I'll be at Barber in September, but I'm not sure if I'm driving yet. My car is back burner and my buddy's rentals may be full.

    I didn't read it on the internet. I learned it in College Chemistry. Just the same, your car on the interstate can run just fine at Stoich, but during race conditions you want a fatter mix. Have...

    If you are looking for "intelligent responses," the internet is the wrong place to look. Regardless, here are a couple of responses. Rebuke correctly or I'll make fun of you.

    The "modifications" he is talking about is to keep the sub-frame, shock towers and strut towers from tearing out of the car. I guess you could wait until they fail, but that is ridiculous. With...

    The BFG and the V710 are a wash. The Hos are tricky to get right, from what I've heard.

    Try the V710s. I don't think you'll be disappointed. The reason I asked about the Michelins: Tirerack.com...

    Well, just before the cords. They are better than the Nittos all the way through. The V710's also have more reserve on tap. They release more like a bias-ply than the Nittos.

    They may lose 1% after the first weekend, but they stay consistently quick down to the cords. At the cords, they are probably as good as the Nittos with tread. The V710s can overheat, but they...

    Thanks for the replies.

    The NT-01 and the R888 are the same carcass and compound, just with different tread patterns. They are pretty good and fairly consistent.

    The V710 is faster and easier...

    Has anyone run the Michelins, and if so, how are they compared to Nitto Nt-01s or V710s?

    It seems that there are very few of these things running, so I doubt I will see that situation. Maybe you could stock a few m44s for me.

    Process weight? To what are you referring?

    The GCR lists the e36 318is as 2600lbs. Is that with or without driver? Also, it calls for solid rotors, front and rear, though the 1997 fronts were...

    One more question (I'm sure there will be more); Can I retrofit the car to run on an OBD-1 harness? I have both setups.

    Thanks, it does. I don't see a 14% increase as that bad. It may not gain as much as some of the other platforms, but is seems acceptable. I will probably run different engine management and tweak...
