I just never got around to putting the xbrace on. That, with the front sway bar should really change the way the car handles. I was having issues with front grip on turn 3 and 8 at Mosport. Hopefully this fixes the problem!
Time for aero mods.... Wings and splitters!!!!

The proper way to set up a car is with suspenion, not aero aids. Last time I checked, there was a big enough wing already on Kurts car.

I'd worry more about 3 then 8, 3 lead to a strait, so it's more important. I'm trying to remember if 3 is up or down hill, could be the big wing, your never going to have a car perfect for every corner, most important corners to be good on are ones leading to straits

I think if you can shave seconds anywhere it's good.
Kurt might be able to use the wing he has for 8.......who wants to try it?

I noticed the difference just driving on the street

.... because I was taking your average right turn out in the country around 65-70km/h
...most people shit their pant's when you enter a corner at anything over 40km/h lol

No, it's NOT good... It would be THE MOST AWESOME ACHIEVEMENT IN MOTORSPORTS HISTORY!... If one could shave SECONDS from any corner.

And yes, I am busting balls!

Some of these comments need ball busting! Fack!

Rich is right aero makes a HUGE difference.

Kurt is right, he needs to get the most out of the car BEFORE aero mods. Very few people actually have the skills to drive with aero mods. They only start working beyond most peoples fear limits!

SIR just makes no sense.

Cramer, you missed the whole episode when someone was trying to convince others that S/S brake lines are wear items more so than rubber???? We're all still WTFing it?

Thats my half a cent worth. Kurt, nice grab with the hood.

Awesome build! Read it start to finish over 1 1/2 days at work (shhhh don't tell the boss! ). So who's build do I read now??

A little OT but how do you like the mastercraft impact wrench you got and what model is it? I was looking at those this morning before I dove back into this thread and the reviews are mixed. I would really like to grab one for when I start ripping apart my E30. (Sorry John, doesn't look like you'll get a chance to see my "clean", "mint", "rust free", "parts car" this year! I wanted to do at least one of the school's but I guess I'll wait until next year. Hopefully I'll be able to come out and spectate again though!)

I remember some in this very thread giving me flak for those reinforcements...

most of that thread is about wheels stud failure.

do you even read what you are preaching as gospel, obviously not cause you've been asked by the OP of this build thread to screw off and your still here!
