I have done more laps around Mosport/CMP(and have held a SCCA ProRacing licence) than you ever will.Last thing Kurt is out there and you're not ,so until you can back it up and get out of your chair.......shut up or put up.
you're the one with the attitude problem. I don't care how many laps you've done if you did them wrong. having a racing license doesn't mean anything, anyone can buy one. if my car is ready i will came to the bmw school in september, but just for the lapping portion, not really interested to be taught how to suck. maybe we can have a race.

There was a guy just like him at one of the BMW schools many years ago , after the first session the instructor refused to get back in the car with him because he knew it all and told the instructor he was better than him (also told Derek Hanson he knew nothing)........... the instructor was James Clay from Bimmerworld(quite the shoe behind the wheel).... the student later crashed his car with another instructor ......racer come on we know that was you.

James Clay was never my instructor. don't make up stories about me, you know nothing about me. James Clay, Derek Hanson, I don't know these names, are they supposed to mean something? Are these the same people that teach you BS driving techniques? Big shots in BMW schools?
No one can teach you how to drive, I don't care how good they are. You must do it yourself and it will come to you naturally, just like walking. reading a few good books like speed secrets will do much more than "instruction" from some bmw fan boy.

Lol another Racer appearance in this thread, awesome.

If only we could all be so talented and have no need of instruction....

On topic, great shots from mosport!

Sorry Kurt(I got carried away with the poser high jacking your thread) I watched this thread because your build was/is interesting........enough of this hide behind my keyboard racer.... back to the real stuff. How much did the build cost in total. Did you solve the soft pedal issue?

I also want to hear about the brakes issue? Resolved.

Much love to Racer! Max just wouldn't be the same without you.

As for the total of the build I would have to do some math and figure that out and I'm not sure I even want to know! Lol


As for the brakes, I was complaining about the low pedal because I was used to the higher pedal in my daily e36. Recently I've driven two other E36's with the same brake setup and the pedal felt just like my M3. So I decided to get used to it. I've just been so used to my black car. So I guess it turns out something is different about that car instead!

I still wish the brake pedal was higher though. Heel toe is much easier in the 328.

Oh well


Picked up a Hans device pro yesterday for an insane price! Going to have Rudy customize it a little for me

Racer and I are going to settle our differences...at race wars.

Don't do it Kurt. I hear Racer is running two S2000's with Spoon Engines overnighted from Japan with over 100k under the hood. Word is he carries enough speed out of turn 1 to be gapping from the ridge at the top of 2 over the tree line into the downslope on 4 almost every lap.

Racer has also been spotted driving on walls in Russia. You can't learn this from a driving instructor.

Apparently he has so much downforce it can't be measured.

Honestly, the best mod we did on the e36 race car was to get rid of the vac booster. Direct connection to the pedal, and now the brakes feel like they are supposed to ... very similar to the full tilton pedal box we have on the e46s. ABS hides so many braking issues with these cars it's not even funny ... I won't say that ABS is bad, because it really is quite effective, but it doesn't let you fully use the brakes, and does nothing to teach you proper braking technique. ANd the booster is just WAY overdone, so there is zero feel.

Just do it If you want a clean bolt on solution, check out Massive Lee's booster delete kit.
