Thats very interesting, Gav. Yup, I witnessed the tyre shaving tooGavin RS wrote:back when those cars were racing I worked at TBS Auto on the dyno, we reprogrammed the ECU and dyno'd Robbi Smith's race car as well as a few Superboss Opels including Farook Dangor's racing Superboss, enjoyed those days. I worked on quite a few Group N cars as well as 2 Porsche Turbo Cup race cars as well as a lot of other different race cars.
On all the Group N cars the new tyres would be dropped off at TBS and we had a machine that would shave all the rubber down, the various teams would ask us to shave the tyres to their requirements and I think the maximum tread depth was around 3mmI used to cringe seeing all the new brand new tyres getting shaved .
Gavin I must get a friend of mine to register on your facebook 325is group. I just re valued his IS for insurance, original unmolested mint condition 1991 BMW 325 is, full service history, has all books , tools original spare and mileage is around 85k, he only drives it once a month then locks it away as he keeps getting bugged from chancers wanting to buy the car
I can relate to the experiences of your buddy...its very annoying actually!
Dont suppose you can remember what power the Group N cars were making, do you?
Also, any idea where I can perhaps get a copy of that Group N EPROM?
