  • E30 M3 Launch HELP!

    HI- I have a question:

    When I launch my car from a stand still the following occurs in my stock m3.

    through 1st. and 2nd. The car chirps which is fine.

    but now that I have some wear on my tires they are slipping throughout the revband. it feels almost as though they are rubbing?????????

    205/55/15???? Contisports

    Has this happened to anyone else under wide open throttle??:rolleyes:

    SOLUTION

    It turns out that my flex disc between the tranny and driveshaft is shot. The part isn't too bad just the labor? and suggestions??

    Thanks- Robert Fulton

        An easy job for a shop with a lift, I'd guess 1 hour labor.

        This would be a simple DIY job but it can be dangerous if you don't keep your wits about you. The bolts holding the flex disc in place can be hard to break loose. If you apply a lot of pressure to the bolts you are essentally trying to turn the driveshaft, this could cause the car to roll forward and fall off the jack stands.

          Thanks-

          Ya I will probably have the shop perform the repair,
          also the bolts were put on with an air drill!
