At this point Randy has to be considered an expert on all E30 chassis components. In a very short time
he has replaced every single bushing and bearing on the underside of his 325is. Because he is very
sensitive to the inputs he gets through the seat of his pants, Randy tends to notice every little
thing that might be worn out on his suspension. The result is that he wants it to be perfect. And he
has just about achieved that on this car. Other than the suspension being just about 100% brand new (wheel
bearings, control arms, brakes, tie rods, etc...), he has also
modified it within the SCCA DSP rules. This includes 22mm front and 14.5 mm rear anti-roll bars, Bilstein dampers,
K-Mac camber plates and eccentric trailing arm bushings, 15"x7" Kosei K1 wheels with 225-50-15 Kuhmos.
A recent addition is a Ground Control coil over setup with 450 lbs/in front and 600 lbs/in rear springs. The next modification
will probably be a Conforti chip. The increased rev limiter should really help during auto-crossing.
Looks like my short lived advantage is over - Randy is going to be smokin' me on course again!
