Rbf was just garbage. SRF is great but sometimes pedal feel was squishy. Something about low compressibility about the fluid. Endless hasn't given me issues so far.
Which RBF? There's a difference between the 600 and 660 and I've not had an issue with 660 even after overheating the stock brakes. I drain the calipers after every track weekend so that helps.

Things like that aren't doing any favors for the fluid either.

I don't think FCP plans on carrying it anymore so you wont have much luck with their return policy. If you flush yearly, cheaper fluid is fine.
I guess we'll see how they handle it. Lol

Do any of you guys get tiny bubbles when bleeding? I'm topping off the reservoir and using a pressure bleeder. Passenger rear didn't have any bubbles, but driver's rear does.

Never mind, I think I turned the nipple too much and it was getting sucked in and put out at the nipple. I have a tendency to over twist nipples.

So you were just scavenging ambient air into the tube rather than air coming from the bleeder?

Edit: nevermind read that wrong. Air was getting in through the threads...

I already sourced a supplier for titanium caliper bolts and titanium pistons. Same with mounting hardware and brackets. However, it's expensive to do right and I need to figure out how to sell it to mrs beef. Also, the car could use a suspension refresh- and that is higher priority.

I know you probably posted it but where do you get your titanium fasteners?

Everything so far has been from Ti64.com.

As if we all had enough time in this world we live in, but you should create a spreadsheet/guide of all the Ti on your car.

Dare I say you are "the resource" who has taken Ti on a E9X M3 to another level.

I wouldn't say that yet. I'm just having fun. I am exploring a side hustle. I really do love this stuff.

All I have at this point is engine brace hardware, air box hardware, license plate hardware, and wing hardware. Low hanging fruit. I have bigger ideas... it's such a small market I would have to be selective and strategic in how I would produce such products.

Way more than any of us.

I would totally nerd out and check out your spreadsheet/guide of Ti parts and where they go, even if I have no interest to buy certain ones.

Mrs Beef knows if it's lightweight and looks good that it's expensive. So I have to be slick about this.

New kit! Ohlins R&T with upgraded Swift Springs 448F/784R which should be within the range of the Ohlins default valving. Purchased from Barry at 3DM Motorsport, he offers one free re-valve, which I will use if I decide to go up in spring rate.

Is that on their website?
All their kits come with 695lbs rear springs. Or did Barry recommend those rates?

448F/784R is pretty much inline with a bunch of calcs I've done. Keen to hear you feel about it and whether you need more front roll stiffness (OEM front arb?)

Just called him and he's able to swap these out with the standard springs that come with the Ohlins kit. He offers a partial credit for the swap and can customize the rates based on preference. From reading some threads on here the consensus seems to be this is the max rate folks would go with w/o a re-valve.

I have the Dinan adjustable front bar and stock rear, will likely set that on the lightest setting to start. Happy to offer my impressions after the install, my aim is to maintain a quiet and comfortable setup on the street with an improved experience on track. I had an MCS 600/900 setup on my previous car, it was sublime on the track but a bit much for me personally on the street.

Also mostly keeping rubber components up front for now, again for street comfort and reduced NVH. One reason I'm using the Ground Control street camber plates vs the Vorshlag setup I previously had.

does he do KW V3s? I have a set of KWV3 that I wanted to change to linear spring to prevent front rubbing.

I'm thinking I'll start replacing hardware in the engine bay. I need some more weight reduction over the front axles and I'm at the point where it's hard to find even a 1lb here and there.

Well, I'm going to have some time on my hands in the coming months and I might just start getting stupid.
