(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
Nov 11, 2009 Update: I've become a little tired of autocrossing in Street Touring (2005-2009), and we just sold the E36 LS1 powered 'XPrepared' autox/track car. So at the 2009 SCCA Solo Nationals I looked at hundreds of cars and dozens of classes to try to figure out what I want to build next. I decided on a D Street Prepared build but was unsure of the right BMW chassis to use. I looked initially for an E36 325is and 328is, then moved to the more powerful E46 330Coupe chassis. On Novembe...

4 Replies and 11665 Views Vorshlag E46 Alpha - 330Ci LSx Build Thread  11665  4 Started by  Fair Introduction: Many of you know of Vorshlag from our earliest Vorshlag branded project car, the E36 LS1 swap, aka: 'The Alpha car' . I purchased this 1993 BMW 318is chassis back in 2002 and it was developed into the first LS1 powered E36 on the planet. This project spawned a 'kit' of parts that we started selling in 2007, and we've been developing, improving, and selling parts for this popular V8 swap ever since. There have been several other companies that took this idea and tried to market a k...

1 Replies and 5154 Views AST Suspension buys Moton Suspension  5154  1 Started by  Fair First mention of the news is here , but a proper press release is coming in the next few days. In summary: AST Suspension (Holland) purchased Moton Suspension (Holland) this week. Moton USA headquarters will move into the same AST-USA facility located in Dallas, just 5 miles down the road from Vorshlag, on Monday. Things are happening fast, but the reality is a great shock brand and their long standing catalog of shock models has been saved from the chopping block by the folks that own AST. &9...

0 Replies and 3400 Views November 2010/SEMA 10 off AST sale!  3400  0 Started by  Fair For November, to celebrate AST's first year exhibiting at SEMA, there's a sale on select shock models that are in stock at AST-USA! This 10 off sale also represents a 15-20 savings to the customer when comparing to upcoming 2011 prices, which are projected to rise slightly (due to factors such as poor Euro/Dollar exchange rates). The 10 off is reflected on the following AST models (10 off reflects the base price of the Shocks Only). There are no other models on sale at this time, and these...

2 Replies and 4623 Views OEM style lower perches - use with AST shocks for SCCA Stock class!  4623  2 Started by  Fair AST makes high end 1/2/3 way monotube struts and shocks for most Asian, European and Domestic built automobiles. As with other high end shock makers, AST focuses on coilover style struts and threaded body shocks, and doesn't have a line of shocks made for SCCA Stock class racers - where the OEM style springs have to always be used. This prevents many Stock class racers from having good options for high end shocks - and the rules allow for two way, remote reservoir monotubes. Vorshlag has the ...

Howdy! Some might know us, some might not (Terry and Brian here at Vorshlag have been doing SCCA events for 20 years). Allow me to give a brief introduction to Vorshlag. We've been designing and building camber plates for BMWs since 2003 and have recently begun branching out into designing plates for Evos (8/9/10), Subaru, Minis, Mustangs and more as our customers buy different vehicles. We have camber plates on the street still running with original bearings in prototype plates from 2003. ...

These include prototype plates for the Subaru GD Impreza, Subaru GR Impreza/Legacy, Evo 5-9, and Evo X models.

These new designs maximize positive caster offset and add even more additional positive caster, with t...
