Mike is a great guy and I was so lucky to be able to get this car, and it will be kept and enjoyed for many years, Mike is planning to come to Bimmercruise in June to see the car.

I'll be doing Hanson schools and some lapping days on the GP track and defiantly some other tracks.

Gotta do a dyno day and hit the 1/4 mile once to get base numbers to do comparison's as I upgrade things over the years, first up is the 4.10 gears, think I will max out on the back strait now!

I have that same setup to go on the the front of my car right now. When the time comes for pads, one of the only places i could find that'd sell me 7812 shape Hawk pads was Porterfield Brakes. They just take a 7816 shape pad and mill it down in house. Unless you wanted to mill down a 7816 yourself. Every other vendor I tried wanted me to buy 10 sets at once to get the hawk produced 12mm pads.

And honestly if you're ordering from Porterfield or milling your own somehere, have a 7816 milled to .490 instead of .480. There's a lot of room between the pad and the rotor at .480.

All of this is moot if you're gonna run a Wilwood compound though.

Anyway, nice car.

I wouldn't have a problem ordering a set of 10, I'm sure I'll go through them, if I do I'll let you know if I get them if you want a couple sets.

I think massive lee may have the pads though

Sounds good man... Let me know if you're gonna order bulk pads. I'd chip in on a set or two. I also have excellent brokerage arrangements for bringing things across on the cheap. So maybe we could help each other out.

Anyway, my whole thing was I didn't know which pads I was gonna run so I bought a set of of Hawk HT-10 and a set Hawk Blues. Once I figure out what I like, I'll commit to bulk buying stuff. My dad also ran a wilwood caliper that used the 7816 pad on his 240Z race car so I have a set of Wilwood H compound, Q compund and some Carbotech from him. I want to run matched pads in the front/rear so I'm leaning towards the Hawk stuff.

What pads do you have on your car currently?

There are hawk pads on it now, not sure which compound. I've gotta get some time to go over the car and look into a couple things and make sure it's good for safety, don't want to have I make 2 trips lol

I'm defiantly putting an order into condor speed shop for motor mounts, it's on rubber mounts and the s/c sits very close to the rad. I'll eventually get measurements and order a custom aluminum rad to make sure clearance it acceptable to me, and better cooling is always good.

If you are gonna swap to a 4.10 you must have a getrag trans. Why not swap to a zf trans instead if you want more usable gearing?

It has a 4.10 diff, and a getrag 260, which I'll change the diff. No real up side of using the zf, unless its a 6spd, but I don't feel it worth it. I'm sure I'll have a selection of diff to change through for different tracks if I want

Unbelievably nice find. Where I'd like my E30 to be but not sure I'd invest all that $$$ only take a huge hit later on.

Trade plus cash always on the table :-p
