Finally...got to drive the car

3 or so months into converting car to track duty, it has been a fun journey working on the F80, the E46 chassis now seems so much simpler and less complex.

I can finally say that I have completed all the chassis work, some things definitely took longer then anticipated; but enjoying the process of putting my second track car together.

I got a chance to drive the car this pat weekend, did a few spirited canyon runs and tweaked the suspension a bit to take out the stiffness/bounce. The solid chassis (no rubber bushings anywhere) created very little NVH and I must say, I love the KMP diff carrier. Instant power to the wheels...and did I mention, race car sound

The 3W MCS's running now running on 800/700 springs along with dinan sway's felt awesome. I can imagine instant transitions on the track...

Next...

I have already started to strip the interior, and will be doing a fabricated 1/2 cage, seats and few other items. More on the interior starting this weekend...

I got a few PM's in regards to the cost of the build, I will post a summary shortly and continue to update as it goes along.

As someone who loves going real deep into a build, this is a very excellent build, can't wait to see how you enjoy ripping this thing on the track!
