    not sure about your budget but from what i hear it is a cracking set up

    and not to mention they are cracking figures that you are running there nice job !!!!!
    Sounds interesting......I will have to enquire if it will conflict with the EDiff on the 135i. The main issue is getting away in 1st gear. any more than 1500rmp on the gass an the rear lights up and I need to short shift to 2nd. On the rare ocassion you get everything just rightit's absolutely awsome. after I'v grabed 2nd everything is fine and I like the rear end being a bit "loose" when out for a play.

    May be worth trying non RFT's and investigating stickier tyres. I know the stiff sidewall works against traction. My Bridgestone RFT's suffered cold shearing, with globules of rubber on the outer edges ("snotters" to all you bikers out there!) when I had my work done and the rear would spin up quite easily. Certainly no cold shear, and far less wheelspin on the Conti non RFT's.

    I keep reviewing using non RFT's but with no spare and I am not keen on using the the repair cans for a puncture, I still think I will have to stay with the RFT, but I will be going to tehh 255 30 18 next time
