some r!cer with 8000k headlights was really trying to race me on 35 tonight. I didn't even bother to notice what kind of car it was.

eventually I let him pass me when he was on it and had momentum and I was at traffic speed. then I just hit thrid, caught up with him - hit fourth - and waved goodbye in like 2 seconds.

So out of nowhere I decided to put the TMS sways and summer tires on the 330 tonight. Front sways took less than an hour to do from car going up to coming down. Piece of cake. The rear ones took forever to figure out though. I wouldn't have been able to get the rear bar on if I didn't have some extra TMS adjustable links sitting around waiting to go on the M3.

Results were great. I haven't driven it yet, but as a passenger it felt like it was alot more stable in corners. Since its just a street car now, I set the sways up to their most stiff setting. With the rear sway set that stiff, we found out just on the preliminary test drive how easy the back slides out.

Even as a street car you want balance and those settings aren't gonna give you that.

Go full stiff front and full soft rear.

You're welcome for the sways, you should let me drive it.

I just registered for the Porche club DE. I forgot that it was an advanced DE only so there should be some fast cars to test out the M against.

My Enkei NT03's came today. They are freaking gorgeous and super light. I can't wait to get the tires mounted and get them on the car tomorrow.

If it really is an issue, which cannot be determined yet, then I will move one or two of the links to the middle holes.

Thanks. I'm glad I can trust the advice that I know comes from experience.

Only if you let Brad drive yours. Didn't I already say I would teach you to drive stick?
