    BMW drift weapon!

    So plans have now changed because i had a change of heart and i have chopped the rx7 FC in for a drift ready E36 m50 325i just because BM's are what i know and love, here it is its nothing special but i love it:

    to be honest this car seems pretty well built with the stuff thats on it but i will be adding/changing a few bits to my liking.

    spec:
    M50 325.
    320 small case diff 3:45 ratio.
    Poly bushed front and rear.
    Mo Superstyle lock kit(has insane amount of lock).
    E30 325 lightened flywheel.
    328 decat exhaust.
    M3 rack.
    Rack spacers.
    Rear camber arms.
    Hydro.
    Bucket seat and harness.
    Banded steels 8j fronts and 10j rears.


    Pretty happy now ive got the car i want with everything needed, only things i will be doing is adding some electric cooling fans and just tidying it up a bit and give it a good service and stuffs.

    If you mean the car I had a quick play in the compound but nothing major as it's quite loud lol but if you meant the handbrake no only cus I'm gonna do the welding and get it mot'd so I think you still need a cable operated handbrake for the mot

    Hey man with the rear camber if you want to ger rid of it on the cheap and not worried about adjusting it just cut and weld the individual camber links and the lateral arm on the diff to chassis. Ive taken about 10mm out of mine worked a treat
