I just moved to Guelph with my E30 too! I'm just here for uni but I've seen a couple bombing around campus.

So good, so depressing. Every time I watch it I just want to shut it off about 3/4 of the way through. Amazing footage though.

The almost 3hr "commentary" version is worth watching too. The cuts are super abrupt but really interesting to hear first hand opinion from people who were actually involved in Formula 1 in the 80's.

Sounds awesome, I'd love to check out what you have. Yeah, I think verts are a bit heavier on the back so there's some reverse rake. I imagine tighter suspension would lessen the effect but I really don't know how your suspension would carry over. I love the way you car sits

Yeah, you car was sweet, I hope I can get to that level. I've seen billy sports on verts before, they look to be a really great fit. What springs do you have?

You mean that level where your car is on jack stands 80% of the time and when it's not, it's oil consumption is about the same as it's fuel consumption?

lol j/k Rob






but seriously his E30 is a heap that's why he's parting it out...
