now the new brake setup is already vintage as it was sitting on the shelves 2 years

Image
I burned them good :)

Image
brake pad thickness, great success

Image

Image

mini cooper S R53 brake discs vs. 323 e21 discs

Image
1mm clearance to the caliper :wha If someone is

Image
much better, now I think the brakes are what I need them to be

about the upgrade, I found it on the interwebs...only difference I did was that I put in the bolts for the calipers and tightened the calipers to the bolts with nuts (not vice versa as the tutorial said)...easier my way

the car is still unchanged and running BUT

I have a problem, the rear suspension is too soft, what to do? H&R springs and B6 bilstein are on the rear axle but when I'm shifting hard the car moves too much on the rear. I already broke 3 axle joints...

which springs are harder than the H&R? any other idea how to stiffen the rear? everything is on poly bushes and I have the 323 stabilisator.

Not sure if these two are related, but on the other hand H&R's aren't too extreme... still road springs so you can go stiffer with custom springs, but I'm not sure tgat will solve your issue. May be your shifting?

day 1 :

Image

at least 150km of rain...E21 on the wet surface is the same as having the parkinsons and making bombs...not healthy. For the Obersee pass I got a dry road so I could threaten some motorcycle racers on the way up. But...if you are going there, you have to admire the nature part also...

What an amazing area to visit, we've been there several times as well and you never get bored with the combination of roads and scenery! Keep us posted, even though some places (many?) look very familiar!

Jeroen, I have to join your trip sometime from my side of the hills :)



day 2 (after yesterdays 600km, it was time to move the legs). Right across our hotel was the Ratsching ski lift...so I didnt have to drive nor walk up the mountain (strange).

Ofcourse right after the breakfast and lunch, I had 10 km to the Jaufen Pass - Passo di monte Giovo (2094m), so I was driving that road 2x per day (from both sides), and the lady was in the spa that time...

Image
last day I had a speedrun from the other side so people were literary standing on the tables on the pass and were looking what was tearing up the road :)

Image
the daily cow portion (I'm from a city - if that isn't obvious)

Image

day 3, as soon as I find the time to sort the photos...

day 3 :

planned route
Image

Sunny morning on the near Jaufen Pass
Image

Image

Image

Image


don't think of missing the curve, it's kinda deadly :)
Image
Image

So we went to see the famous church in the Lago Resia...well, it was dry because they are fixing something :) So I checked the webcam on Stelvio (overloaded parking) and I also seen a lot of campers and tourists on the way there so I decided not to drive 20 km/h up the Stelvio and visit it next time.
Image

On the way back to the hotel I seen on the classic A0 not digital map a place called Val Senales (again over 2000m), road clear, tank full...race mode on :)

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

As it is in my tradition, race on the hill and sightseeing down the hill
Image

and another for the animal planet, found some dry bread in the car...perfect for the lamas
