1988 735, 1986 535 turbo, 1981 Baur 323i
|It's been a long time since I hung out here and thought I'd say hi.
I've been spending the winter turning the e28 turbo car into a track rat and haven't even looked at the Baur since September.
This was an early photo during the mock up phase of the engine bay.
It's been a long haul with this project. I cut the thing up and turned it into a full tube frame chassis, took the power rack from the e21 and grafted it on (e28's did not have r and p) as well as a host of other things. About the only OEM parts left on it are some of the body panels, fender wells and the roof.It's currently in the fab shop getting some changes made to the cage and ought to be on the track for tuning by mid May. I'm running Megasquirt2 and getting it to run properly is, to say the least, interesting. I highly recommend this sytem for the tinkerer.
I'll probably be lurking here more often, especially now that the Baur will be back on the road again.
