Ok had the car on the weigh bridge
this is one heavy pig of a car
1520kg compared to the 1m of 1482kg in stock form.
The e87 only had a half tank of fuel so more like 1550kg without driver.
I surly though it would be lighter, but I like the shorter body so much fun to drive and much cheaper if you damage something
as parts are abundant, just picked up a whole car for 500 bucks for spare body parts and interior.
If something ever happens I've got a spare body shell as back up or build another If i want and most likely scenario.
Had the car on the dyno, totally useless just would not hook up on run flats and break traction anything past 5500rpm so could not get proper readings, time to get frankie on a hub dyno in the near future.
Dont want to run better tyres on the dyno as the rollers shred them and semi slicks should not be run on them as you can destroy them.
The car had all the paper work done and is now fully legal here in oz, lots of hoops to jump through but now can be fully insured.
Had a couple of issues with the aircon, pinched an o-ring and compressor wouldn't turn but finally fixed.
Everything sorted so hopefully today I can refill it and everything will be working.
Got myself a brand new guard roller for 50 bucks and will roll and pump the guards a little myself, not paying 500 to 600 bucks
for someone else to do it and what they are asking.
wasn't born yesterday and know when someone is trying to rip me off.
Everyone is trying to use the excuse covid this and covid that to hike up their prices, they are full of shit and won't last long as people arent stupid.
I'll have a few more pic's this weekend as I'm taking the car for a trip and will be putting it through its paces to see how she holds up.
Need another gearbox as I sold my new one and got one with a shot 2nd gear syncro in exchange.
I wasnt sure if I was ever going to build another car again and was trying to sell this engine but glad I didn't as its an animal.
Just waiting on the drags to open up again because with all this rain they where shut for the last few months.
This car feels way more powerful than when the engine was in the 1m so hopefully a 10s 1/4 might be on the cards.
