Doogee E90 Racecar Thread
 
I didn't think I was going to create a thread involving the new car but I figured I could share a little bit. I won't be going nearly as in depth as my E36 M3 build.

I picked up a 2006 325i last Friday. The owner claimed the car had a brand new clutch installed but it didn't work. Sure enough the pedal wasn't going to the floor.

Rudy came down to the shop to help me out with pulling the transmission off to check out the situation. A job that should of taken 3 hours turned into 7 hours because of the previous owners attempt to change it himself.

Got the transmission off and it did indeed have a brand new OEM clutch and pressure plate but the SAC hadn't been set. So without any special tools or experience with this, Rudy created a "custom" clutch alignment tool and we ended up using the hoist to compress the springs on the pressure plate. *wiggle*

It was nice to get the car on the hoist and see the underside in fantastic shape. Nice shiny bolts still.

Temporary rims and tires :)

I'll be driving the car until spring and I'll start stripping the car then. After cruising around a little bit, I wouldn't mind selling my E36 DD and buying another E90. It's such a nice car to drive.

As for timeline. I hope to have the car stripped, caged, painted, along with some suspension done by the summer. Then I can fly around Mosport with it a few times and enter some regional races.

The ultimate goal is CTCC in a few years.

Hope you guys enjoy this one as much as the last.

WOW... fcplm These only came in front wheel drive. That's why the e90 is such a bad platform compared to the almighty e36..

Let the games begin!

You're such a dum dum, they came in rear wheel and 4 wheel drive too. But you're right about the e36 being waaaaaay better.

You guys wanna meet up at Timmies parking lot tonight? I think the del sol we were drooling over last time will be there again.

MiroE36 01-22-2013 12:23 PM

I'll bring beer and popcorn for the discussion and drooling over said del sol

cormier 01-22-2013 12:36 PM

Buddy... there is tons of grip with those Azenis on ice. I speak from experience on the test drive lol. :rolleyes: Seriously though, go back to the OP and try again.

On that note, my winters are gonna look so much better on this car than sitting on some random dudes E30 racecar roller in storage ;)

The scary part is BMW did an owners servey and over 80% did not know which type of drive(front, rear or all wheel) their BMW was.:(

I ROFL'ed at the original for sale ad; "new clutch, will need adjustment", did this guy think he was selling an Mk2 VW!? lol *wave*

PS, new(er) cars are addictive as DD's! Be warned! *wave*
