Here is the part I am sure you guys really want to see, The steering angle. We were able to achieve 61 degrees with a 17x9 +0 wrapped in a 245-40-17. The angle is insane. Everything posted here is included in our kits. We did however make a mistake on the mill with our stainless sleeve inner diameter for the FCAB. In a rush to have the car ready for the event in 6 hours, we remade a mild steel one at the last moment. Normally there is no modification to the arm, But since we were not able to head back to a mill, we had to modify the arm a little bit in a jam. You get the idea tho. These are exactly like the early 99 arms, just with a different inner ball joint.
Then we moved on to the little final touches. We added some sparco latches to hold the trunk and front bumper on, as well as a new flex-a-lite black magic 3500 cfm fan for our Level7TUNE radiator setup.
It all turned out very well. Definitely one of the lighter e36 turbo sedans? lol. Here is a picture of the scales before we corner balanced it and added a few lbs of ballast.
