Ha, I timeserted my vanos mounting points and seem to have stopped my oil leak.


I still suspect my flywheel is causing the vibration issue but I want to do some driving/mtn biking before the summer is over. Iíll probably pull the transmission again in a couple of weeks depending on how much it bothers me.

Does this tire strategy seem sound?


Iím looking at 255/40/17 continental extreme sports or firestone Indy 500 all around. The goal is to reduce ultimate grip and lower the cost of consumables. I want less grip so I can learn the car at a much lower limit and gain any mpg advantage. Lastly, Iím psyched to gain sidewall height for some of the dirt roads out here in CO!

I haven't had the new Contis yet but MountainE46 has aka Brian. As for the Firehawks not sure what you have on now but they are good alternative tire imo I've had them for the last two years but not squared. They are still pretty grippy when warm but they are basically useless in cold under 40degree weather it in anything more than damp roads. I've gotten about 15k miles and 4 track days and 2 autocross days out of the rears so far but probably won't last another track day or two. The fronts had pleantly left on them but I cut the sidewall. Maybe consider the Firehawk as if you want less grip and more versatility?

Does anyone have experience or input on brazing subframe cracks? Iím thinking silicon bronze would be plenty strong with plates and since itís a lower temp maybe rust will be less of a problem. Also brazing is much more accessible for the everyday diyír

Time attack shake down with the arc 8ís and conti extreme contact sports. This combo is definitely lighter but I donít have a scale to confirm. I need camber like a mofo so swapping top hats before the next event.
