    Wow, thats awesome. I contacted wholesale companies that my father has access to and NEVER failed me in the past (Example, i just ordered a fuel pump for his 850CSI Euro model without a problem, in stock) & even they are out of stock on B8's & B'6's. I have called all major retailers and non have in stock & need to order from wholesale suppliers ( which I already know don't have any)

    Now I was going this route because I will run the H&R race with b8's until the J-stocks are available then send them to get revalved to match. I'm sure there are many more over here that need them. I have a HPDE on june 11th and would like to avoid purchasing KONI adjustables

    It's not just you, he is trying to get the same b8's you are. They are completely out of stock so if you don't have a spare set or know someone who does then you will be using different dampers in the meantime.

    LOL,,,, US E30 M3 History Lesson incoming....
    So in the long ago days, before there was a Turner Motorsport, Will Turner used to race E30s. He was always fast, usually at the front.
    He used to have a seemingly magic touch at altering existing Eibach springs to his liking on his and other's E30 race cars that needed to use a stock type spring (not coil overs).
    When he started Turner Motorsports he had the resources to have an E30 spring set made by H&R to his specifications, which he sold with some matched shocks and I think sway bars.
    It was targeted at the then VERY popular BMWCCA Club Racing J Stock class whos rules required stock type springs, shocks, bars.
    If you were a fast car in J Stock, you were using Will Turner's J Stock suspension, and many others driving E30s in other classes also picked up on it.
    Became somewhat legendary in the US. Then as E30M3s (and E30s in general) died off in club racing, as did the once popular but now dead J Stock class, so did them making the J Stock spring set.
    Many people mourned. People wanted it,,, and there was seemingly enough interest for Will to get some more made.
    That concludes the E30M3s in US club racing and track days history lesson for today LOL.

    I added my name to the list. I really hope they'll produce them as a spring only set so we don't have to wait for the Bilstein backorder.

    The Porsche 996 guys drain the hydraulic fluid (glycol) from their engine mounts and replace it with 80 Sh Polyurethane.
    As an example:https://rennlist.com/forums/996-foru...rformance.html

    Seems easy enough to replicate on the S14 hydraulic mounts by cutting away the bottom steel cover, cut the bladder, drain glycol and replace with polyurethane. Stick cover back on and voilà one solid engine mount.

    Better to get them now than never :(


    I'm thinking about adding to Will's list or calling up Phil over at bimmerworld to see if someone can make some dag on SOLID RUBBER motor mounts. 1k for group N is ridiculous, poly is garbage, stock is also garbage. They already make those solid mounts that fit the 318is and e36 - maybe we can get a group buy on something like those for the s14.
    Or keep buying 1k motor mounts....

    Hmmm. Looks like I'll have to be rocking some H&R race with Koni's until i can piece together the J stock & billies. Sounds like a waste of money now but can transfer over this temporary set up to the other E30 M since that wouldnt be on the road for a couple seasons anyways.

    Directly from William:

    "​I am pretty sure we are going to pull the trigger with the springs.


    The issue now, is that Bilstein is back ordered on the (Stock sport) shocks that they modify – I am trying to get an ETA but its looking like 6 months to a year on them !​​​​​​"

    So matching jstock billys may not be an option immediately. I personally will get those later but run the jstock springs with regular b8's and halved bump stops in the meantime. Aint nobody got time fo dat
