So there is only solution. Take it out in the rain, to a big open parking lot, and drive the shit out of it ass out. You're not hurting the car, have tons of fun, and learn a ton about controlling the car past the limit.

do it all the time once a month at 400&Langstaff (but that's too slow to have real fun, might try the high-speed ones they do at bronte stn. next year)

Didn't realize you autox somewhere else other than Trillium, how come you don't break traction and get the ass out when your at the BMWCC ones?

All right, back on topic - ME!
Was at the bodyshop today, mostly good news: The frame rails are not bent... well, just a little, the car is fixable
I am thinking of painting it white.
I started a thread at the beginning of this year, trying to sell some of the parts - pretty much everything that's not track necessary... but that didn't work out too well, so I am going to start another one again in the E30 section, watch for it in the next few days.
For people that track their E30 I have a custom chromoly half cage with driver and passenger 4 point Schroth belts, let me know if you are interested.

WOW!!!! I had to go back to original picutres of the crash to see the damage before and now afterwards. To be honest i would of proabably gone for another shell if i was in your shoes but its great to say you didn't give up your e30. Looks like the body shop did a A+ job....are you still going to go through the entire repaint?
