Re: Shop w/ subframe plates + CMP bar experience between Chicago/Indianapolis/Cincinn

Matt is indeed the guy to go to if you can come all the way out to PA.

Performance Eurowerks is in Chicago and from what I've seen they do good work too.

Re: Tesla Model 3 Owners Thread

Both can do 50A at 240V, and both require you to buy an adapter for the Tesla mobile connector (they don't include the 14-50 by default anymore), so from the perspective of charging a Tesla, there's...

Re: Tesla Model 3 Owners Thread

Just FYI, but if you're going to DIY things, I think it makes more sense to install a 6-50 instead of a 14-50. When working with 6 gauge wire, having one less conductor makes life a lot easier.

Re: What did you do to/for your ///M today?

My old oil extractor broke, but it got pretty much all of it. Minimal drainage from the drain plug after extracting. Oil filter should make the amount of particles left in the pan minimal.

Re: Breakthrough discovery about the Spal 30102082 Fan! The Most powerful sealed fan

Sounds like you need some thicker wires / better connections. Putting in a bigger fuse without fixing that is just asking for an electrical fire.

Re: Whatís up M3FÖ bought a CF monocoque to ruin with a baby

The slow ones I've been to have been around 60-70 kW. Fast ones more like 100. The ones I've been to were never too busy though.



I've looked at both. The latter under predicts a bit, but...

Re: Whatís up M3FÖ bought a CF monocoque to ruin with a baby

Dad's got a model S and I found the range calculation to be spot on there even on highway. And even the slow chargers generally do a fair bit more than 50kW

Re: Whatís up M3FÖ bought a CF monocoque to ruin with a baby

Yeah Teslas are much more viable for long distance IMO. The range on the newer ones is in the 300 mile range (though that's probably reduced with your speeds ;)), and the superchargers seem more...

Sterling was a standard color on E39s. I guess some people saw them in show rooms and wanted it on the M3s they were ordering?

Re: Why are Dodges and Nissans driven like they were stolen?

From what I hear, most stolen pickups are stolen by contractors on the job, and it seems like GM trucks tend to be used in that environment more than Fords

Re: E36 M3 daily driver?

Doing napkin math:

E92 M3: 295 lb-ft * 1.58 (3rd gear ratio) * 3.85 (final drive) / 26.3 (rear tire diameter) = 68.2 (of some made up unit which will cancel out later)

Itís plug and play electrically. Replaces the pusher fan and will turn on and off at the same way that would.

No pricing yet beyond it being "< $60k". I'm betting on $59,995

You'll also trash your bodies by the time your 40-50 in many of those trades. Not sure that's worth it.

Probably air flows through the radiator more efficiently if you also remove the condenser.

Same here. I think I might just cancel and try to get from an overseas source.

Re: Still a head turner

It is, just never came factory in the US (well maybe it was a "priority 1" option, but few would have ordered those). And I don't think he wanted to spend $750 on a new one.
