      good news and bad news.

      good news is the replacement rack works like a charm and no more leaks!

      Untitled by tim wilson, on Flickr

      the bad news is the cheap angle kit just is not going to work. you get close to full lock and the steering just lays over and sits at full lock so you have to force it back which can cause issues when transitioning while drifting. and when it hits full lock it looks like its trying to rip the balljoints out of the lower control arms. so i took the angle block off and i ordered e90 inner tie rods so that i can still run the e46 lower control arms for extra track width. if it still feels like **** after that i am going to just go back to stock lower control arms and save up for a proper angle kit from SLR. i also got to test drive it down the street and when i turn left there is a metal on metal sound coming from the RR wheel which is the wheel i replaced the wheel bearing on. i am going to tear into that tomorrow to see what is causing that as everything feels tight and its only when you transfer the weight onto it.

      i also got the dash trimmed and installed so i will have pictures of that tomorrow. along with hopefully picking up a 3.91 open diff tomorrow.

      30 days left until the first event! i am starting to feel the pressure

      terrible pictures but here is the dash installed after trimming. as typical with a E36 the glove box is broken so i cut it in half and i am going to ziptie it into place so it is now a pocket where i can store my phone and tire pressure gauge. i picked up the 3.91 diff today, hopefully going to get that welded up soon. i am also ordering roll cage padding as it is required for where ever a body part may come in contact with the cage. e90 inner tie rods should be here tomorrow so i can hopefully get the steering sorted out. if it still is driving weird then i may just reinstall the stock lower control arms.

      snapping front diff bolts is super common on these cars. this is what my buddy who built the cage has done to prevent this in is 450hp turbo drift car. basically its a piece of steel stock welded to the front so the bolt now touches the diff in 2 spots and prevents the shearing effect of the stock set up. you need a longer bolt in stock thread size and washers to create a spacer. figured id show it here incase someone was interested in replicating

      last piece of the puzzle that was really needed. got the 3.91 welded up and installed and i also changed the oil. my dumbass forgot to fill the diff before install. thankfully the fill bolt came loose with a vice grip and i had a pump that i bought over 2 years ago on my cross country trip to california in the 2002 that i never used. worked like a charm. one week until the first event! hope the car holds together

      Good luck. Double checked that is the etown event right? Mildly funny that drift events either happen where I used to live or where I live now.. yet don't drift.

      had a awesome time at the event. took me over a hour to get the car somewhat dialed in and for me to remember how to drive. first 10 runs was nothing but spinout central for me. had to get the tire pressures adjust right and did a quick alignment and it all started to feel right again. towards the end of the day i was getting closer and closer to the wall. it got to the point where there was less than 10 mins in the day and i knew my tires were shot and i wouldnt get another run in. so i went for the wall tap, and ended up with a wall bang threw it a little to hard at the wall and it caused the front end to come around and smack the wall. thankfully due to the rear end cage bracing that was built for wall rides it didnt completely fold the rear end in and the front end coming around to hit the wall was slow enough that i was able to straighten up preventing any sort of steering damage. next event is april 19/20th. going to raise the front of the car up, get a real alignment, get the AC recharged, install a new driver seat and get a M bumper to cover the bash bar.

      started on fixing the headlights. one high beam and one low beam never worked. the high beam bulb was fine, have no clue how i fixed that. the low beam driver side had a bad ballast. but i also order new bulbs with a green output that im pretty happy with.

      also got the exhaust fixed, did a nut and bolt check and everything is still tight. next paycheck i will be ordering a M front bumper and possibly a replacement clear turn and black kidney grill so it looks less like garbage. next event is a 2 day april 19/20th

      That's great that she likes to ride along. My lady loves driving, but riding along when I'm pushing it, not so much.
