Disgusting Mark 2 with a fully hand built suspension, (custom control arms, sway bars, strut towers.

RWD, rear engine.

Fully hand built fiberglass aerodynamics. This guy is insane with his skills.

Its a shame he has no eye for design :bleh: still, props for all the work he's doing.

Dont tell me its not an issue, Ive watched it.

heaps of people here (mainly drifters) run stretched tires and i've never seen one come off, even when using yum cha brand tyres. i had a bit of stretch on the front on my last car using reasonable tyres (toyo proxes 4 215/45 on a 17x9" rim) and i had no issues with grip, and i had more road feel than when i was running the same size tyre on a 17x8" rim. i could have fitted a 225/45 tyre, but at $80 a tyre extra for a 5% increase in contact patch, it wouldn't be worth it. going wider isn't always the best if you are sacrificing decent compound for a slightly larger compound patch. on the rear you don't want stretched tyres, but you don't want bulging tyres either or the car will wobble. my mr2 came with 225/50 tyres on a 16x6" rim on the back and it felt terrible. i've now got 16x7" rims on the back with 205/45 tyres and it handles a lot better.

So like most things Ricers do, it is to look "cool" at the sacrifice of performance... :lol:

I've noticed something, to run stretched tires most people reccomend a higher psi than a tire of the proper sizing... I know in my car, if I keep the tires up where they are the happiest, they tend to also give an increase in road feel. I honestly have to wonder if this isn't just bogusness brought on by most ricer drivers not realizing the difference 50psi in a tire makes vs. 30psi in terms of overall tire rigidity. I can also see a another reason for all the extra pressure when you spread a tire like that you concave the contact patch, so you push the pressure up to make it go slightly convex.

i ran 34psi in my tyres, same with all the wheels i had. i experimented a bit with tyre pressures, anything significantly less made the tyre sloppy, anything significantly more made it too hard and reduced grip.


mmm carbon

Grim: I take it that you are one of the fellow few that enjoy good old school German engineering. Here are a few of my car for your viewing pleasure.




All the way to the left in this picture^^


EXTREMELY over Pshopped picture from somebody on one of the local forums.

GRimm862 May 5, 2009 09:24 AM

Nice car man. You part of any of the e30 forums? R3v, e30tech?

What kind of wheels are those btw.

JonE30 May 5, 2009 06:21 PM

Both. haha
On r3v I go by PiercedE30, E30T I go by PiercedGuy.
Wheels are E38 basket weaves (16x8, et23) on E30M3 suspension.

ScottDoom May 14, 2009 09:59 AM

Was testing the 3.2mpixel camera on my new Palm Pre. Not too shabby. All I've done is crop it.

Front wheel drive with a supposedly stock motor equipped with monster rear tires and a rear wheelie bar.

I'm speechless. :huh:

dreamwalker Jun 23, 2009 10:07 PM

Why would you think its a stock motor .. haha.. with that added weight it would barely be able to run if it was a stock motor

squid Aug 22, 2009 10:54 PM
