Beta Updates for 11/14/07: Sheesh, has it been a week since we touched the Beta car? Dang, its not like we have slept in the past week. Thanks to the post-race-season rush we've been busy as hell building and shipping Vorshlag suspension and chassis parts, wheels, and AST orders. Thanks for that, guys!

We just had 2 more Stage 0 kits sell last night to a local BMW shop (Thanks Eddie!), so we're now concentrating on getting the Stage 0 kit parts built and delivered, as well as getting some shake down time on the Beta car this month. A huge shipment of CNC bent stainless steel header primary tubes, exhaust flanges, and collectors also arrived this week, along with tons of laser cut parts for all for the various brackets. Taylor at DPH is now buried in fab work and we're all kicking it into overdrive to meet December deliveries of all of the Stage 0 kits.

Hanchey and I, joined by Scooter (Beta car owner), Taylor of DPH and others that stopped by his shop worked on the Beta car will 11 pm, and we got a lot more suspension work knocked out. Tie rods, front LCA bushings ('95 M3 offset to work with the E30M3 lower control arms), RTABs and limiter installed, rear subframe installed, and the 18x10 D-Force wheels with 285/30/18 street tires were mocked up for spacer fit-up and possible fender clearancing.

Pictures:

New RTABS / Rear Subframe Reinstalled / Front tie rods and LCA bushings installed


14" front StopTechs / 18x10 D-Force wheel and 285mm tire checked for clearance (needs a 10mm spacer)
