  1. so this is a BMW owner question. i have been to only 4 champ races and at each of those races i have seen 1 or more BMW's in the pit stall for most of the race with a few fellows under the hood. and when i mean under the hood, they are pulling pistons and stuff out. so, is this on par for BMW maintenance, or just really bad luck? heck, for all i know, its been the same car and the same guys working on the same motor..lol
  2. 13.5 - not too bad
  3. ahh. i was thinking it was a 350. ill have to go back and look at that. thanks.
  4. i just found this from the first of the year. seems like a few didnt think they were so good for power to weight. i drove this one a bit i have to say its quite a bit quicker than my 1.6 miata. the z3 i have has the 2.3.
  5. So, i just picked up a 1999 Z3, 2.3 stoopid cheap. like, this is a ligit $500 car. runs and drives great, just tons of cosmetic issues. perfect champcar candidate, right?? its a 350 car per the book, but i don't think i have ever seen one at an event. is there a reason why? they seem like a great car, rear wheel drive, 170HP, 2900 lbs-ish. like a spunkier Miata. id like to hear what you guys think, know, dont know about hese cars. ive been looking but not finding a whole lot. thanks!!
  6. wow.. i cant believe they make something just for that. pretty cool.
  7. Never thought if that. Ill try it tonight.
  8. hey.. so, my minty fresh Miata has a boat load of tire rubber marks on it. I have found that WD-40 works pretty good for removing them but i wanted to know what everyone else uses. also, mine is a wrap, not paint, so i cannot use solvents that are too hot. let me know what you think. thanks!!
