Quick E30 reshell

The S52 E30 went into a wall. front coil may have failed or the axle may have locked up. Regardless I'll make a video series!

Re: Dexter Stage 6: No more motors!

Just don't death grip the wheel and you'll be fine. Newbie mistake from road racers is to hand over hand. When you start a slide, the steering wheel will self correct faster than you can steer. Let it slide through your fingers. Let loose as soon as you start the slide if not sooner. Just watch some...

Re: Dexter Stage 6: No more motors!

Actually, aside from the lack of steering angle, your setup should slide like butter. In the hands of an experienced drifter tho. I like to setup my newbies with loose cars. But when you're good, it's frustrating and you want a slight understeer setup.

Re: Dexter Stage 6: No more motors!

I hate cone dodging. Makes sense for an autox but for drifting, it allows you to take all sorts of a fucked up line and still link the entire course without straightening or spinning. It's good for newbies but boring for anyone mid level or higher.

Re: Dexter Stage 6: No more motors!

Great thing about drift tracks, they make good grip tracks. If it's truly made for drifting, the corners should flow very well. I find that autoxs tend to make sharp angles. Maybe fun to grip but annoying to drift. IE Doable but good flow to a track makes all the difference.

Re: Yoshi's Differential Rebuild/mod (pre)write up

Yea I think Roy found this forum from my youtubes channel. On the down side, with moving houses, I tossed anything that resembled spare parts. As such, I got nothing. So much nothing that it's sad :(

Go kart slick surface is not fun. Looks like I had to drop 15mph just to not die.

Re: Sway Bar Master List

Smooth surfaces, do your work with springs. The less smooth, the harder you go on the bar. That's why off road guys run like 200lb springs but sway bars the size of my arm.

Re: Let's call is #spare30

I like how there's just a cut off E30 front sitting there... like why did you need to do that?! lol.

What's your mechanical background? A 2.9 isn't exactly the most common thing you see people do. Why pick that platform instead of a stock M20, or M30, or any other motor?

Re: Sway Bar Master List

I'm hoping you converted the car to all disc brakes too? Softer front bar should make the car over steer prone more than understeer. If you're ok with that, I'd leave things as is. I prefer a little over steer to under.
