Just how ridiculously difficult is it to fit the E34 rear end?

I absolutely love these cars but that rear suspension is what keeps putting me off them

@Hog Dog Regardless of that, the GT25 family are a very small series and don't tend to like lots of boost through them (at least from what I've seen).

Very interesting, as I'm planning on using a GT2560 on my turbo E30 318is and from what I've heard they'll only just pull 300hp

A GT2540, making 410whp? That's awesome.

What's the go with the TiAL rear housing?

Your article is better than the video to be honest. Disappointed in the footage that was shot, big time. Could've been so much more.

Massive respect to them actually holding the event, though.

Very nice!

Sort of the same idea that I'm going with my E30, except a bit more street oriented.

Well, that's unless it ends up so fast that I feel it needs a cage and harness :)

For anyone who's featured, how did you start on the long road of learning to fabricate?

I'm about to buy my first welder and give it a crack.

@Speedhunters Yeah, people obviously do want to see it, I know that. 

But that's just my point of view, for what it's worth. I figured it'd be better to actually write up something that explains why, rather than just LOL LIBERTY WALK SUX and whatever other drivel some people post.

@Taryn Croucher That is true, but I know what he means.

If I wanted to see Liberty Walk stuff I'd go to other mainstream sites that have some pretty pictures.

I come to Speedhunters because you guys seem to have a talent that nobody else does for finding the batshit insane backyard builds. The guys that spend a decade refining a car in their shed to be absolutely insane. 

That's the sort of stuff that I want features on.


I absolutely do realise that you can't find enough of that sort of thing to fill the pages, and so other interesting enthusiast type things like race reports and the like are totally appreciated. 


But as stupid as it seems to type this, this kind of thing where they take a car, do something for the sake of being polarising and then proclaim to the world that they're pushing the boundaries, does not appeal to me at all.


Now bear in mind that it is nearly 1am and I'm sleep deprived so this might not make sense.

It's amazing seeing how much the Gallardo changed between its first release models and the last special editions in terms of aesthetics.

I, for one, can't wait to see what it looks like with the customary wings and diffusers that they'll add further on into its lifespan.

It already looks great, and judging by the video that shows it's about as fast to 300km/h as the Aventador, it performs very well as well.

@Larry Chen @aussieANON Did you guys get the Defender at all?

If not, the S1 Discovery is a great base to start. Coil springs and live axle are a recipe for success.

All you would really have to do would be lift it, some good tyres, then lockers (although I'm not sure how much abuse the stock axles will withstand, I'm not a big offroad nut).

Fund it!

They're wonderful cars.

Our family car is a Discovery 4, the turbo diesel. Costs a lot of money here due to taxes etc 

Damn it's nice though. Tows all the broken down cars we can find on the highway with no problems, fits camping gear for a week with no problems, and absolutely monsters bad terrain.

Love it.
