Great turn out, i didn't end up staying long, but I attended the cruise and the meet.

That was an awesome cruise Randy, thanks for organizing everything.

My camera is just a regular point and shoot but i'm sure others will have amazing shots

not real paint but looks sick

haha no worries, I had a bunch of people asking about the car I cant remember seeing a alpine white e46 though? Thanks for the compliments, aparently I won a trophy so gotta pick that up sometime :) on a side note that (estoril i believe) blue e30 is absolutely the dirtiest e30 out there! Also that stock e46 laguna m3 on laguna interior SO dirty.Sorry Tom, totally got carried away and said its black lol.

Hey Tom, saw your car and it's looking great but I gotta ask, what is up with it?

Everything is rattling when you step on it, your exhaust or something else? Also, you're shooting gallons of fuel out the tail pipes....I thought it would be all done since its been in shop for so long.

Did you get to dyno it, I was at the autoX the whole day so I dont know if the dyno guy ever showed up or not.

AlpWhitE46
09-19-2010, 09:53 PM
You can definately smell it a km away haha

Tom
09-19-2010, 10:09 PM
LOL thanks, the smell is NO cats, also the car runs at 11.0-11.4 AFR at wot, so yes that is dumping alot of fuel but that is perfect afrs for turbo cars... fabs car stinks to bro its called a 600rwhp beast. As for my exhausts, the custom brackets that were made to hold it are no longer in place as the welds snapped, as the brackets werent made with titanium, have been to busy to find some titanium and bring it to a tig welder, but the car will be off the road 1st week of october so I wont be worried about that this year, the exhaust is hanging by coat hangers which is why you hear that metal clinking/rattling LOL... as for dyno the guy never showed up so im going to head to TAG racecraft or anywhere else that has a dynojet, I made 577 rwhp/452 trq on a dynapack last saturday with pump/meth, with race gas it would be around 640/480...I also won the E46 WILD trophy :) Hey Tom, saw your car and it's looking great but I gotta ask, what is up with it?

I would like to say that I had a great time at this years Bimmercruise.

A big thank you goes out to Randy for organizing this great event and all of the people that helped out with it.

Hey guys,
I just bought an e46 m3 vert couple weeks ago and this was my first event. Some of you might have seen my car, it was the carbon black vert with the brown interior.
Well here are a couple of vids my cousin took of the autox:

No idea, but I doubt it will be lighter than the 135i. And that is pretty disappointing as is currently IMO (~32xxlbs)

By the way that mini has about the same money in mods that the car cost to purchase, it's about as purpos built as you can get, right down to Acomp tires and I beleive LSD front transaxle. Last year the mini driver and Rudy were one point off each other for the championship

That silver Mini Does have just about everything that you could change uprated! Plus before the owner started tuning it for autocrossing it weighed 2550lbs. Now it's down to like 22XXish. 250+ hp equal amount of torque, 275 front A comp tires, adjustable coil overs, uprated brakes and so on..... Miatas and CRX's do not own autocrosses. I've never had a stock Miata beat me in my stock e30. Mini's rule autocrosses period. I've never gone nose to nose with a CRX but no torque=no go out of slow turns. Unless it's modded but then we're not comparing apples to apples.

Also the Mini Driver is a very accomplished driver as he's gone through the Trillium Driver education program start to finish.

In response to the 1M, that's going to be another fail of a car right out of the blocks. Too heavy by a land slide. The way they've been fixing that recently is by adding ridiculous amounts of hp. That helps stop light races and 1/4 mile times but does nothing to help handling, feel, and braking. BMW trade marks. With the amount of weight a 1 series has, it does not have a chance at becoming an autocross champ. These car manufacturers need to understand that the way to appeal to an enthusiast driver is to first start with a light weight chassis, then add a whole lot of sidewinder power, and leave out the GPS, nav, million watt stereo with heavy amps and speakers, leave out the 24 air bags, and ABS, DTC, SBC, and all of those crappy drivers aids, remove the power sunroof and seats. Back to basics a la e30/e36 days! I've said it before and I'll say it again, if BMW were to build a brand new e30 325i, I'd be first in line to pay fair market value for it!!!

At that time I still hadn't figured out the course as it was my second run. I went faster on the ones after, I'm hoping there is video of one of those.

That silver Mini Does have just about everything that you could change uprated! Plus before the owner started tuning it for autocrossing it weighed 2550lbs. Now it's down to like 22XXish. 250+ hp equal amount of torque, 275 front A comp tires, adjustable coil overs, uprated brakes and so on..... Miatas and CRX's do not own autocrosses. I've never had a stock Miata beat me in my stock e30. Mini's rule autocrosses period. I've never gone nose to nose with a CRX but no torque=no go out of slow turns. Unless it's modded but then we're not comparing apples to apples.

Also the Mini Driver is a very accomplished driver as he's gone through the Trillium Driver education program start to finish.

Thats because you never see CRX's up here anyways. PERIOD.
There arent many left.
Research autocrosses down in the U.S. and see which cars rule(d) autocrosses, then you'd change your opinion.

Sorry wrong again, and there are plenty of crxs up here, but like most fwd/awd imports it's a bunch of people who think their cars are the best, and can't do anything but try and drive in a strait line.

I'll give a bit to the miata, nimble and has quick steering and since it's rwd it doesn't understeer, but again it all comes down to the driver.

If you want to prove a crx is so great, you'll have to prove it, most series I've scene that crxs do any good don't have rwd cars running.

In response to the 1M, that's going to be another fail of a car right out of the blocks. Too heavy by a land slide. The way they've been fixing that recently is by adding ridiculous amounts of hp. That helps stop light races and 1/4 mile times but does nothing to help handling, feel, and braking. BMW trade marks. With the amount of weight a 1 series has, it does not have a chance at becoming an autocross champ. These car manufacturers need to understand that the way to appeal to an enthusiast driver is to first start with a light weight chassis, then add a whole lot of sidewinder power, and leave out the GPS, nav, million watt stereo with heavy amps and speakers, leave out the 24 air bags, and ABS, DTC, SBC, and all of those crappy drivers aids, remove the power sunroof and seats. Back to basics a la e30/e36 days! I've said it before and I'll say it again, if BMW were to build a brand new e30 325i, I'd be first in line to pay fair market value for it!!!

Do you think they dont want this? Sure they want to do that but safety regulations and the need to keep up with market forces them to build cars that are less appealing to the enthusiasts and more to the general public, because lets face it, they outweigh us about 10,000 to 1 or something like that.
Bottom line is , now its all about the money.

Come to the next autocross and get a faster time then all the e30's and I will start to believe you.


You do realise John drive's an e30 right? and that he's been doing autocross's and track days for something like 10 years?

Me and him had a similar time this autox and he was sideways most of the time and I was trying to actually go fast *drink*

You need to get over yourself and the crx because it's simply not the greatest car ever made for autocross, if you do happen to go faster then the e30's, good luck with the mini's, which even in stock form are in my opinion far superiour to your torqueless economy car.

Never said a CRX was the greatest autocross car.. is there such a thing ?
It's driver/car combo which wins.

FWIW, I dont speak out of my ass.. you know why ? Because I have owned an 89 E30 M3, with a 2.5L motor modified suspension to the tits, and have driven modded e30's 318is, 325is, as well as have driven shitty Mini Cooper S etc etc though I havent autocrossed a Mini.
I doubt may people here have owned good conditioned Crx's on this forum anyway...

I also do know what CRX's are capable of, when having slightly modified setups. Been driving them for 10 years now.
On an autocross, the CRX will win 9/10 times, just based on weight differences alone ! Heck, that's even without a B or K20 Series engine swap.. *wave*

btw, ever wonder why Honda has come out with a CR-Z ?
I guess they woke up and discovered they had something very good 20+ years ago.... too bad it now ugly, and hybrid. *thmbsdwn*

Wow, thanks for all of the kudos guys, I appreciate it.

Robb, we're not talking about modified CRX's with k transplants and what not. A bone stock (engine wise) CRX with a 1.5 or 1.6 does not have enough power and definitely enough torque to pull it out of the tight turns to be competitive. I know they're light I've driven many (before you go and ask if I've ever driven one) I went to high school with a good friend who's rich parents bought him one brand new in '90 as a 16 b-day gift. A very good friend of mine now has a mint special edition with a zc transplant. I've driven that one too. My 325i pulls slightly from him in third gear and on. I've seen CRX's autocross as well, Twin Lakes, in Barrie had a regular there in the late '90's and he was a mid pack finisher. You can say he was a poor driver, although he wasn't, he was well seasoned, but if the car is supposed to be that good why wasn't he farther up the field? Anyways I'm not trying to get into a pissing match here, just stating a few facts.

Seriously, though why don't you come out to the autocrosses we hold. It's a hoot, and a great social event too. Who knows if you do beat the e30's you could smack talk all you want, if you don't you'll have to be ready to take the smack talk, but it should all be in good fun.

Comparing the prices when new is a mute point. Try and buy a CRX now a days and an e30. CRX $7000 and up, unless it's a parts car, e30 $1500 and up unless it's a parts car. I bought mine for $1500. 'nuff said.
