yup, my team was up there at New Hampshire event two weeks ago. I couldn't make it because I had a bacherlor party all weekend that same weekend. Our team finished Middle of the stack in group B. No real engine trouble, but over the winter we want to change to a limited slip diff, wider wheel combination, various heat shielding projects, and weight reduction.

how did you and the car do ?

Car ran strong. We really gained most positions Sunday morning when the track was soaked. Was passing 4 cars per lap on average. But around 2pm the slave went and had no more clutch

Cracked oil pan via curb riding or some other natural disaster?

Is there any parts carry over from the E30 to the E36?

Well here's a short and sweet update for nj a few months back. Rent a pretty kickass rv and drive it down. Car passes tech and we go for some drinks. Wake up and it's race day 1st Driver goes out and comes back with the car overheating. So we run some tests and discover the headgasket is shot. So me and my cousin load the car up while the other 2 racers and family stay at the track and enjoy the day. 2 hours later we get to newark and tear this thing up. Pulled the head and the head is cracked along with a melted piston (pump leaning out right hand turns with no 02 sensors) here we go. So we lie to our teammates and tell them indeed it's the gasket and we will be back for dinner. 3 of my friends are pulling the engine 2 of us go to pick up a Craigslist motor. Buy the motor come back and discover it's an obd1 and we need obd2. Pull the rods and pistons along with the head for our original block. Wrenching away 5 people in total disassembling 2 engines to make 1. Its Saturday night. It gets late everyone is running on energy drinks. The bars close. We get distracted by this


Now it's 7am. Our teamates and family went for breakfast. We are nowhere to be found. We get back to race. Car does 12 laps and spins a rod bearing.

Moral of story.
Don't let your cousin put 12 rod caps in 1 box
(Granted , Guy does mortgages for a living not work on cars)

Car is at Mechanic shop now getting ready for October race in michigan.

We bought a donor car to discover it has a 2.5 instead of the 2.8 but now we are running an upgraded intake manifold a double in tank pump left bank and right bank. an aluminum flywheel and a custom dyno tune if Kats is up for it

decided to scrap the single cam engine setup and go with a dual cam engine for it. new computer, all sorts of necessary changes.

we also ran at Connecticut a few weeks ago, actually did quite well. put down a few hundred laps/ran all weekend... finished right in the middle of the whole pack.

My 10th race is coming up this December at road Atlanta.
Our last race was in South Carolina and we lost a 2nd place lead mid Saturday bc of a motor mount bracket. Lost 4 hours of racing but managed to gain 30 positions finishing in 32nd place. We’ve been working on a project to haul our car.

94 international school bus to be the lemon hauler. A lot of work but we finally managed to shove the car in there. Currently looking for 16 foot ramps without having to pay 1500$
Anyways I’ll try to post things more regularly.

Connecticut is in august and half the team is overseas.
This was the first year we didn't do nh and we won't go back until its paved. There's literally like 10 different types of asphalt on that track and it always rains. EVery. Single. Year.
