One of the members was telling me about this. Big Al is his name and he drives a race ready black 83-85 Z. He took me around the block in it and it screams! Fun stuff.

I'm planning on signing up soon.

MAARC isn't running this year, and I can never make Tarheel BMWCCA's July 4th weekend, so North Course HPDE opportunities are limited this year.

She isn't ready yet. I know this will sound like a cop out but I want to finish with suspension and brakes overhaul first. I need to finish getting the components then performing the operation.

On a side note, is it a MUST to get a camber adjustment kit with billy sports/h&r race springs?

e30 rear camber changes with ride height, the only way to adjust it is to use eccentric trailing arm bushings or drop the subframe and weld on adjustment tabs, both are a pita. same goes for rear toe, it's not adjustable. or you can do what i just did ten minutes ago on the race car, use spring pads to adjust ride height (and therefore camber).

also, north course does indeed rock.

+10000, i love that track. its going to feel very different this time around.

on a different note does anyone have an old set of ra-1's they might be willing to part with, or know where i could get a second hand set from?

i was hoping to get a set of spec size RA-1's, but for testing anything will work.
