November 2012 - Dr Waelti - E30 325i
Our car of the month this month hails from Switzerland. It is a 1983 E30, with a potent naturally aspirated M20B25.
"The name of the driver is "Dr. Waelti"(BMW e30 Orange), from our Team Renan Motorsport, part of the official team Scuderia-Taifyn (www.scuderia-taifyn.net).
We are active in rallye, hillclimbs, slalom, and on tracks.
The Doc is active principally on the hillclimb Swiss championship, and also on tracks for hi-speed drift!
The engine: it's your 3.1L stroker and 304 billet camshaft. It develops 270 rear wheel horsepower, and 245ft/lb of torque, without any compressor or turbo.
The suspension: It's your 25mm/22mm sway bar kit, with all urethane bushings."
