    J880 YEV - The return

    Yes J880 YEV is back, consider this a teaser

    It will be a sister car to my E36 coupe race car, and will be built to a similar spec (and colour scheme maybe) just in loon format!

    Pictures and progress updates to follow......

    Evening all.

    Going by the above it seems that the car has had an intersting time after its accident on the bfuk forum, all i can say is i wasnt present and am completley unbiased to what went on. I have the car now, thats what matters.

    I will try to keep the thread updated (as well as my coupe race car thread) when time allows. Im picking up a front end for it this weekend and am sorting the clucth slave cylinder, last thing i want is not to be mobile.

    Karl lives local to me, so when he offered it i snapped it up. Having known the car when steve owned it, i know its solid. Yes it needs some tlc, but that can be expected with a car of its age

    And why a sister race car when i already have one??
    Because of the very good feedback recieved about my 325i race car it seems obvious to build a second, but have this as a rental car so it can be hired out. I know how to make it go well and be reliable, so while i can why not i thought...
    Never now, could one day be running a bmw race team
