Nevermind, I was thinking long term ownership that you chose 2 of the most expensive disc and pad combos to replace.

Hi peeps

Haven't updated for sometime.

Here is an update from 2 weeks ago

Dash delete Bluebiggrin
Wash it worth it ?
Hell yeah. That shit was heavy

Climate system was disgusting. This car always amazes me with its skeletons.

Krap removed

I plan on only running gauges. Basically. Boost. Tacho. Oil pressure. Oil temp. Water temp. Air fuel ratio and my clock lol

This is how my tacho is going to be mounted

Then last week I sold one of my parts cars

This week I am doing some wiring clean up and putting on my wheels !!!

[Image: 9ee76b9314aceb369d9cb442b1db5ea3.jpg]

Still got a lot of wiring to clean up it's a kak job !!!

I also forgot to mention I upgraded to vented rear brake system. Much better especially for drifting hopefully the rear brakes will be more efficient.

Here is the rims they are flippen sexy !!!

Before

RE: Rough Rider 325i
I'm quite intrigued about the idea of just running the gauges on a flat panel or something similar. I know you showed some pics earlier in the thread but would like to see how it ends up looking. I think if done right it could look cool.

Not sure if I would do mine like that as I want to keep mine street 'legal' but it has got me thinking...

Haha thanks guys. Yeah got a lot more weight reduction to do. I plan on mounting the gauges on the roll cages and try wire tuck as much as I can

I wasn't aware E30 diff would work in an E36, but that said, I will quote JC, "How hard can it be?"

You just need the e30 internals. They apparently are a straight swap with the e36 internals

Ah thanks. Had a suspicion of such. Good luck and keep up the progress.
Similarly E34?

RE: Rough Rider 325i
When I worked for the dealers the E34 diff seemed to be the most likely to be a swop if I saw one, just figured, as you plan to thrash this car, that stronger is better.

RE: Rough Rider 325i
I don't think its 100% swap. There's some machining and shimming involved from what I read/heard.

Also keen to see what a difference it makes fitting an ls. Would it be worth it having the clutches coated again? I know it depends on the wear, but to get even more lock would you do it?

I am sure it has been it has been used abit lol

But yes gonna run the welded diff first then I will probably get the LSD rebuilt with more clutches so it has a more aggressive lock

Will try swap it over this weekend as I have an open diff 3.46 sitting at home and I am going to swap the internals across.

A guy who races with us has his own gearbox & diff place down here and in JHB somewhere. They do the coating of the clutches to a more aggressive spec than from factory. So let me know and I'll give you his details. Then you can just get them coated.
