  1. My contribution based on the work of my daughter Kristen. It was great seeing everyone and I'm already looking forward to next year. Vintage 2013 Todd
  2. Well the RGB is representing at the Vintage. BJ did an excellent job in the Auto-X and today we're off to the event for what appears to be an absolutely perfect day. Scott, John, BJ and Mae, Todd and Babs with Kristen, Mike Self, Harv and hopefully others will make it today. I wish there were others but the RGB is always well represented. Todd

  4. My opinion here, but I think what has always driven the 5 lug discussion has been wheel choice and not people sheering off lugs. As others have said, there are several other weak point in the drivetrain beyond the 4 lug connection of the wheels. That said I have seen the 5 lug conversion adapters which push the wheel outward 20mm. If you were looking to run later wheels you would need to look at wheels in the 45mm offset range to account for the added 20mm adapter. Wheel options, offset, and flares have been discussed to the point of exhaustion, but really come down to a personal choice of the owner. Do research, learn what the pros and cons are, learn how offset places the wheel and tire in relation to the car, then decide what you want to do and drive on. Todd
  5. Kevin, I'm using the 1/2" stick on trim and have had good success. Get three packages. Todd
  6. This post has been deleted, you are not really seeing this.
  7. I was going back through my post after the new site upgrade and ran across Barry's response and my lack of responding to it. So... to address Barry I did add length to the shifter below the pivot ball (approximately .625"). This can be seen in the last posted photo where the shift linkage is lower (this was before the pivot ball position was raised). Even with a long shifter above the pivot ball the throw was shorter, then as Barry has described I shortened the top of the shifter to reduce the throw even more. I'm using seats that sit slightly taller than normal so it all works out great. I've now used this set up for about 3 years and I like the performance. It would have been easier to use the old style platform but I had the e21 platform and used it. I did mount the rear of the platform to the tunnel (e21 style) and have had no issues. Todd
  8. Justin, try to get a rough idea how far it is from the chamber plate position to the ball joint with your car sitting in a normal position. If you can get this length then you can do the math to find out how much more clearance you will gain by moving the top strut position inward by 3 degrees. It won't be that much, but at least you will know how the camber changes your clearance near the fender. Once you know how much it moves at the top you can use a shorter distance to the top of the tire and have a very close idea of how much going to the camber plate will help. Your question had multiple answer which the others have already answered I just wanted to touch on the issue of the camber plates as you originally asked. Anytime you change tire size, wheel size and offset, and camber, take the time to run through the numbers. I run 15x7 et25 with 205/50's and get a little rub at full lock but no problems at the fender. The extra 12 mm of offset really help me.
  9. I made the video!!! Yea! I had to move Blackie so they could park the LFA.... My second spot was between a Lamborghini Gallardo, a 458 Spider that still had temporary tags, a Z4 M Coupe, and a Danin3 E36?, so Blackis was still in good company. And best of all Ben's white car was close.
  10. RGB is gathering E30's as well! Got this one for Babs.
  11. Location - Knoxville TN Average daily commute - 24 Miles one way, ~50 round trip Total mileage - Showed 36,000 when I pulled it home in '07. How long you've been driving it - Couple of years now Longest trip you've taken it on - Knoxville to Winston-Salem NC, unless you consider the trips to RGB land. These trips are 600 plus in a weekend. I think what strikes me most about these cars is the recognition they recieve. Ive been giving the "thumbs up" signal so many times and yet it still makes me proud and happy to see others appreciate these little cars. Todd
  12. Mike, There is an excellent discussion located here. http://www.bmw2002faq.com/component/option,com_forum/Itemid,57/page,viewtopic/t,308713/highlight,speedo/ Todd
