wanna know what to do to your e36?





Common knowledge for most(what those upgrades can do) but nice to see it in vid form and some real life numbers.

This formula can be applied to basically any car and see the same results. was nice to see it in video form though

Good video, but would have been nice to actually show comparison or splitscreen clips of the car going around hard turns, etc with each of the upgrades.

Great idea for a video, but could have been executed alot better.

I think that guy was over driving that E36. Don't think this car should be experiencing brake fad from three laps.

And if Gran Turismo has taught me anything, you barley use your brakes if you are driving a track properly.

you use your brakes. but he was driving the car hard, as you should be able to on a track day. but i think the rotors he put on werent that good either. a good set of brembos or zimmermann will probly do you better

Stock brakes definitely fade easily. The only way I managed to get rid of fade was with better brake fluid and pads. Ss Lines help with the mushy pedal.

Gran Turismo is a game. Of course you need to brake hard at the track. Especially small ones like tmp.

Pfft, who needs brakes. Slip angle slows you down plenty. Also, if you do like you should, and wait until you see god, count to three, then jump the binders hard, you realize you don't use much brakes at all haha.

This was from an article in EuroTuner this month that was really, really great.

Showed step-by-step reductions in lap time from a 92 325is they bought sight unseen with almost 200k miles on it. I might even scan the whole article and post it on here, I liked it so much.
