    Steve this is not me who quoted this............

    Anyway well done on the results.

      Sorry Toby - I've mixed you up with the other chap - UK215m3.

      My mistake on the horsepower - Bexley's have remapped it (after I removed the cat internals) so it's up from the official 215 to around 218 or thereabouts. A recent dyno run on a Dastek dyno showed 219hp.

        I have my video camera mounted on the rear headrests the bracket clamps onto the posts. I moved the front headrest to the rear when I installed the Recaros. Some folks think the rear headrests block rear vision but that isn't my experience.





        More photos here

        Oh and keep up the good work flying the E30 M3 flag

        Cheers

          Thanks for info on suspension. Are you pleased with Toyos? Weighing up between those and Kumhos Ecsta V70. Hope to be fitting Leda coilovers to mine soon.

          Did you get photos of Wbo2 setup taken - can't remember post on BMWCCGB?

            Kevin - cheers for the info - I don't have rear head-rests, but I might be able to use the mounting points. To be honest, I haven't really delved into the camera mount yet - my old boss offered to lend me his camera if i make a mount so I have to pull the finger out.

            According to Alan (my old boss) he finds the video footage very helpfull for both him and his son who jointly hillclimb his 279hp Caterham.

            Piers,

            The Toyo's are excellent. It's hard to compare to other R compounds as i haven't used any others except the Avon CR28 Turbospeeds. There were probably better, but were 156 each compared to the 103 for the Toyo's.

            I was told that the Kuhmo's are very sensitive to suspension setup and would probably need loads of camber to work right - on a road car I didn't want to go silly on the camber.

            Most other competitors run Yoko AO48 in super soft compound. But with lots of things in motorsport, it's not necessarily that they are best, just that they are the cheapest option (around 90 per coner i think in 15 inch size).

            The small hatchbacks and the Caterham type cars all run the Avon ACB10 crossplies. These aren't really suitable for the heavy M3 due to a low load rating and only being available in the slightly harder compounds in 15 inch size (the 13 inch sizes have 3 compounds to choose from). The Cr28s in 15 inch size are exactly the same compound and are radials.

            I'm running the 205/50 15 size so the rolling circumference is smaller than it should be, and also a narrower profile - though they do lower the car a bit.

              Steve,

              I haven't got one of these but they look like they might work, you could probably knock one up yourself.

                That's the mount I have (the first one on the page) and very good it is.

                Cheers

                  Cheers Alan. That looks like a good idea - I'll have a go making something.
                  Kevin, does it vibrate much? I ask, because the seat backs aren't exactly solid! Maybe I'll have to reweld the seat mounts on the passenger side liek I had to do on the drivers seat.

                    Virtually no movement what so ever. I have it clamped to the posts with the headrests pushed down. Igot the OEM headrest kit as pictured on the website. The ountingkit cost about 12 UKPounds IIRC.

                    I have used it on various track days as well as creating a screensaver from the footage of my driver training assessment lap from last August.
