Default Re: Rear subframe. Front mounting point reinforcement.

What do you mean “needs more time to call it a fix” What are you insinuating by that.
I havent installed the bushes yet. Im doing eveything at once to save time money etc.
I spoke to someone at RE and they said that the redish plates are a waste and to do the turner. So still debating what route to go. I guess im just going to have to pull the subframe out and see what im working with.

If I go weld a few bars together at home and then tell you to weld that "brace" into your car, would you consider your racp bullet proofed? Or would you say that you would volunteer to test it out and then x years down the road if you don't have a catastrophic failure, you would be considered a sample of 1 that this "brace" worked for. Someone else who is a track rat could weld in my brace and rip apart the racp at the first track event. R&D takes a long time.

Both Vince and Cayn (CMP) have Facebook pages. They both have also written extensively about their solutions on this forum. Both address the front mounts.

Agree the search on the forum is not the best, but I literally Google questions or topics I am interested in and results from this forum always come up at the top.

Welcome to the forum, looks like you just joined last week. First few months can be tough until you learn the ropes. A lot of guys on here have spent significant amount of time on this forum and on this chassis and can help. But everyone's pet peeve is seeing a new thread about a question that has been discussed MANY MANY times (in some cases for 10+ years). Google is your friend.

Default Re: Rear subframe. Front mounting point reinforcement.

Hi Jaredomin,

Regarding your question I (CMP Auto Engineering) have developed a system to reinforce the front 2, rear subframe mounts in addition to the kit we offer that reinforces the rear 2, rear subframe mounts.

If you have any questions about the kit feel free to shoot me a message or ask here. Otherwise, there's some information on my thread for the front mount reinforcement from post #146 onward.

http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showt...565038&page=15

If you're in the market for a complete top and bottom reinforcement I offer our own design of underside reinforcement plates, the 2 topside reinforcements I mentioned above as well as solid aluminium subframe raising bushes designed to correct the change in suspension geometry from adding the underside plates as well as lowering the car.

You're also welcome to contact me Via facebook if you'd prefer.

I’m..insinuating..that they are relatively new products that need time to tell if they are a true fix or a temporary relief.

Good luck dude.
