I'll have to find some info on the Brick races and the thing that I meeting the guy on the 18th for, I don't know what's that's about.

I think that this is what the races that I was talking about are.

I'd also be game for going there for anything else too! :)

im no stranger to hanging the tail out in the wet.. dont like doing it in the dry because things like to break more often in the dry lol

i havent tried anything in the 325 yet since converting it to 5 speed. i think that 4.10 im running will make it a little more interesting.. i could do 1st and 2nd in my old E36 318i (euro sohc 8v not the dohc 16v u guys get) which feels like more or less the same gearing as my 325 has atm so it should be cool that way but im not sure about all that extra power.. just touching the pedal even on a tight roundabout at normal speed in 2nd and the tail starts to slide out. i have a funny feeling ill rarely be using the clutch to initiate a wet weather drift whereas in my old 318i i was never off the clutch lol

That's a little too high for a stock m20 i think. Mine busted a rocker at 6800 rpm....M20 fail! :(

Yeah, it seems to be hit or miss with breaking rockers at 7k+. I have heard from many people who run a 7200 redline with no problems, but have also heard many say they broke rockers at those RPMs.

It also prolly has to do with the maintaince on the car itself. Like keeping up on the valve lash and oil changes when needed. Mine was not taken care of prior to the rocker failure... so I can assume that that played a part.
