Ianthetechi and I are building our first race car for Spec e30. He has had an e30 for about a year now, and just picked up another one. We will be racing as a team and are looking forward to getting involved in the community.
We snagged an '87 325e for $1260 that someone else had been working on making a spec car. It has an i motor in it as well as the 3.73 dif with LSD. It came to us with a trunk full of new and used parts such as new brake rotors, pads, fluid, and gauge cluster. The previous owner had also gone through replacing most bushings with urethane. The subframe is all that is left I believe and he gave us the bushings as well. So it looks like all we have left to buy is suspension, wheels, tires and the safety gear.
Hopefully we will be starting HPDE events this year with plans to get started next race season. There are a lot of parts that we are wanting to get such as the AKE shifter, but we aren’t going to let scope creep get in the way.
