    Compact tarmac rally car

    I had some e28 arms but from memory they were quite short in comparison to the e30 arms? Did you swap out the subframe too?

    The diff case is out of an E28 M5. Aparently there are two types, tall nose and the one I have. It bolts right up to the E30 subframe. I had to channel the rail above the diff to make it fit but that was easy. Ive welded lugs into that same rail where the rear diff mount bolts too, you can see it in the photo. Fairly easy really And thanks Josh!

    Hey, Yeah I agree with you and yup I made spare arms. The design was done by Kayne Barrie, I can't take the credit and theres some pretty trick ideas in there that you can't see! No modification to the arms needed apart from that welded plate. Uses larger off the shelf wheel bearings, E28 inner drive flange and for the compact a stronger custom hardened Hub. This is a really good solution for e30s/compacts breaking axles. I haven't seen anyone anywhere able to put a larger stronger shaft through the standard E30 arm and most parts are available off the shelf...So easy! "Sway away" make the axles and lots of off road guys use them in the states, every things on the shelf ready to go. The CV's are from GKN, but there essentially a "Porsche 108mm" cv. These are super common and you can pick them up at most performance websites selling driveline products. I went with CV as its there same as my old man runs in his GTR. His spares now become our spares haha, according to GKN the cut down CVs apparently have 30% better cooling. More surface area I suppose. If you want a strong E30 rear end give Kayne a bell.

    WTB: E34 rear hub nuts

    Heya, am looking for the big hub nut that bolts the wheel bearing together. Think its a 36mm hex with unknown thread size at this stage. i think all E34's had the same nut. Thanks! Steve

  14. Hi all, I'm trying to find the following diff in LSD. I think there out of the E23, E24 and E28? Am finding it hard to find info on the net. Its a large case/8 bolt/210mm. I THINK its part number is 33111210410 but on realoem.com this shows a 6 bolt. Not sure if realoem has the wrong drawing or not. Any info on where to get one would be greatly appreciated! Steve
