That's what all of that clutch kicking will get you. I bet you the pressure plate is fine and that you may have bent some of the springs......I did that to my e36 a few years ago.

That's the list so far. I'm sure once I give the car a good look over it'll get bigger.

For me it's not mods, it's maintenance, I have to finally deal with some crazy vibration coming from the rear end, new pads, rotors, and Motul brake fluid coming (fingers crossed) Need to find some money to get r comps, and summer tires as I wore both sets off at the end of last season, other than that good to go. So if anyone wants to donate some money or top notch tires to the poor John fund, I'm accepting donations! LOL. But seriously.

Rich, I don't want to hand your ass to you with an e30 girls car too. JK, I'd run the vert, but it doesn't deserve the same punishment that I give to the coupe. I don't need two cars on the fritz. I might run it for one event though, just to see how it does... maybe destroy your old 4.27LSD in the process, haha.

^^Some of those look interesting, Steve. It'll be nice having another e30 out this year, even if it's only a black one!

Its been a long winter and the car needs a good power washing to get all that salt off, polishing and waxing.

I'll be changing my oil, filters, re-lubing the brakes and changing the fluid.

New mods:
Since we have moved to a large lot this year, i figure i will have to step up my efforts and go all out this year with my latest mod... MINI Challenge decals.

yes, stickers ALWAYS make me drive faster!

I can hardly wait Rudy!

Rudy

I posted this because it is disappointing to hear your not autocrossing this year. You and your cars performance is something I and other enjoy seeing at the events for many reasons. Your always willing to ride with newer racers to help them learn the course and give tips, which everyone appreciates. The times you put down are used by many to judge how their cars and driving are progressing. I only posted this after you said it yourself here on Maxbimmer, and knew nothing of it till then, and was shocked to say the least, that we are losing one of the series top dogs.*

Wish you well in which ever direction your track addiction is taking you
