They've been "developing" that for the past two years, I'll believe it when I see it. It would be nice to have something closer that ran on the banks (faster straight speeds) but the transitions to the infield and the banks themselves are hard on tires. It would be cool to have though to switch things up.

IDK, He seems to think that he wont have time to get them shipped and mounted before wed., witch is probably a fair assumption.

His Dad's dealership would probably mount and balance

As he ever been on "track" before? If not, the last thing he needs is a super grippy tire.

Well I'm finally taking the next and final step into the land of no return. On the list of things to remove are as follows:

Moonroof, replacing with CF panel
Headliner
A, B, & C pillars
All carpet and sound deadening
Everything AC related
Front side windows, motors, and everything else related
Replace rear 1/4 and rear window with 1/8" lexan
Thining wiring harness

I think that may be it for now.

The audio harness is all seperate from the cars main harness so it should be easy. The hard part will be getting rid of the window, mirror, moonroof, etc. wiring. If it's not in the car now the wires are coming out. The nav/audio harnesses alone sell for 200 bucks.

I doubt I could ever successful pull something like this off. The car would most certainly not run for a very, very, very long time

Let me know if you need a source for it, I can get as much as you need for dirt cheap.

Yup that's the goal, hopefully I can provide some cool pics by tomorrow. There's a lot I have to take out before I can even get to the good stuff.

I think I'm just gonna order some Jeff, there is a company that makes them pre cut and pre formed to match the oem stuff. I'm not really in the mood to fabricate anything.

It would be a lot of hassle, so I certainly don't blame you man!

Yes it does

I dont care anymore. Ive got my 24lbs wheels and all of my interior and truck, including spare.

In 7 years, park your car outside for 7 days during freezing winter, or 7 days in 100+ heat from the sun and then try to start it

Yeah, thats the other option. The 94r is like the exact bmw battery, but black. This Autozone one just fits. No corrilation, other than it rated higher than the BMW

Then you do what I do and have two batteries. I have a lightweight battery and a optima yellow top for the winter.
