  • 3. Start-up Procedure / Switches

    This car has a lot of main and secondary systems and ends up with a lot of buttons, dials, switches and digital readouts. This section will explain the proper order for starting the M3 before going out on track.



    Starting the car...

    Well I can give you 100,000 reasons. Cost for a good alignment machine plus a proper 4 post rack ranges between $20-100K, and we stopped taking in "customer day work" 5 years ago. We could never justify the cost, so about once a month I haul a car to a nearby...

    I like this feature above - the O-rings installed around the spherical bearings will help keep water and grit out of these metal bearings. This is even more important once you get sphericals near ground level. After that was rough adjusted (we...

    EPAS CONTROL & POWER HARNESSES

    Another OEM system we lost with this "CAN-free" car was the Electric Power Assist Steering, or EPAS. The 2011-14 S197 and 2015-up S550 models all went to EPAS, removing the hassles and dangers of hydraulic power...

  • Project Update for January 25th, 2023: We are now into 2023 but I have been cranking out the forum build thread updates! Several customer cars have been wrapped up and left, our C6 Corvette is pretty much completed all of the testing and product development we wanted, our 2023 BRZ arrived and is already...

    Meeker M3: Instruction Thread

    This is a special Forum Thread made specifically for James Meeker to help with the "Care and Feeding" of his wide body beast of an M3 we called Chainsaw Massacre.



    A track build this extensive needs some serious instructions, and while we made him a binder with wiring...

    Instructions - C5/C6 Vroshlag Shock Mount Install

    WHY COILOVERS AND PROPER SHOCK MOUNTS MATTER ON CORVETTES



    While not known as a "Corvette shop" (instead we have developed packages to cover about 20 different chassis), we here at Vorshlag do sell an awful lot of coilover dampers for the C5, C6, and C7 Corvettes....

    The pedal stop consists of a threaded nut added to the firewall, then a bolt (with a jam nut) that the head of pushes against the back of the clutch pedal arm. This now prevents the clutch master cylinder from over-traveling and puking the seal out. Now we could finally...

    The old nozzles were mounted to the rear part of the 3-point bracket, but the new Radium fuel filter blocked that mount. The engine bay was getting tight and it wasn't going to fit back there. Plus every time the STB came off the fire system lines were bent and/or had...

  • Project Update for Dec 31, 2022: I started writing this update Dec 31, 2022 - to try to catch up the build through the end of 2021! This Caddy has been completed and left Vorshlag several months back, but I am woefully behind on updating build threads (each one of these takes hours to write, add pics,...

    We chose this pair of compounds from this list: GS1 (street) -> R6 (autocross) -> R8 (light track use) -> R10 (track pad) -> R12 (track pad) - R14 (an endurance pad!) -> R16 (aggressive track pad) R18 (super aggressive track pad). If Amy...

    These went on without much fuss - but installing these "style enhancing" factory optional plastic doo-dads inflamed some serious business autocrossers! So much so that I had to make a meme...

  • Project update for December 27th, 2022: This last year (2022_ was a very busy time for Vorshlag and for my time on track (30 track days). I spent a large part of this year running in our C6 on track, getting a lot of seat time and even autocrossed it once. We did get my personal 2015 Mustang LS swapped...
