Haha.
Yes it is good.
Yes, it is fun having a properly running car.
No, no fences or rivers were harmed.

One could say it ran like the wind....ran like the dickens....or even ran like a prison escapee!

Looking good man! I am moving back to GR in about a month, sometime this summer we should totally get together and do some sort of a photo shoot. Although that means I have some serious work to do to get my car looking good haha.

Well it was a pretty good day involving the e30. Was hanging out at the skatepark with some buddies and got to talking about racing one of my buddies. He recently got a new (to him) 2003 Cadillac CTS. He wanted to race and I just kept saying he'd walk me no problem, but not in the twisties. Anyway, we raced and he walked me, but BARELY. I had a bad launch and I think if I'd have had a better launch I'd have him for sure. Pretty fun. Then I was like "Ok, let's go do some twisties now." and he backed out. hahaha. Bitch.
Then we got talking about car weights and he goes "Just go to Trans Core (local scrap yard)." Apparently they leave their scale on at night and you can just drive on it and look at the scale readout on the building and see what your car weighs. We go over there and weigh our cars. Mine ended up being 2700 lbs even. Pretty stoked about that. His was 3700. haha.
Now I'm addicted to losing some more weight. I've got my power steering unhooked, so I might as well take the rest of it out. I don't know how far I want to go with it though because I still want thinks like an interior. haha. Speaking of interior, I want new seats, but I'll start a new thread for that.
Overall good day. haha.


-serious business-


Cliff notes:
-I lost a drag to an 03 CTS.
-My car weighs 2700 lbs.
-I need a new sig...I'm about to get on that.

Cool stuff man. I am pretty curious to see what my car weighs. How do you like having no power steering? I have been debating that, most likely getting an E36 rack for free and really tempted to depower it. Also for losing weight the AC compressor weighs a metric crapton, and it's right at the front of the car too. There's also the trunk tar that a lot of people remove to lose some weight.

Yeahhhh my car is mildly stripped already. I already pulled out the windshield washer fluid bottle and all that, spare tire, trunk tar, whole AC system...that's all I can think of right now.
I like it without power steering. I feel like it improves the "feel" of the road. If I'm honest though, it's a pain in the ass in a parking lot if you're going slow, or if you have to parallel park.
