Well... before I saw the picture, I was going to assume it was just a front wheel off... which is totally normal for a BMW.

...but then I saw two.

It just needs more suspension to handle that sticky tire. What does he have now?

Dampers, bars, springs, etc. will all help.




Even then, sometimes there is just a freak circumstance that causes it. I recall Nationals back in 1997, where at a certain corner, a bunch of D Stock Neons were just barely two-wheelin', including mine.

Well its obvious that there is way to much spring compared to the sway bar set up...also tell the guy to soften the rebound on the shocks big time.

Set up is massively off
This makes no sense to me. Too much spring but you want less rebound damping?

Were you at beaverun?

Not at Beave....the reason is to allow the tire to "rebound" back to the track surface.

Really the car needs different spring/bar relationship..of course I am assuming that the car is autoX and not coming off a inside rumble strip on a road course

Suspension
• Dinan springs/swaybars (25K)
• Bilstien shocks/struts (new)
• Dinan fixed camber plates (25K)
• KMAC offset bushings (rear) (can’t remember)
• Ground Control (?) rear strut mounts

This is the information as it was sent to me.

Really with out spring races and bar binding rates (and a test) I cant really help much
