Jun 5, 2012 update to the BMW 2002tii project car

Tii Track Testing

The chassis rake is still a little wonky with the mismatched suspension. That's next on our list.
Push our BMW 2002tii too hard, however, and it will step out of line.

It’s a fun car that we are now driving on a regular basis—the vent windows in the doors are a great solution for keeping things cool on hot days around town.

Despite the fact that summer’s heat has once again come to Florida, we drove our 1972 BMW 2002tii about 80 miles out to Keystone Heights for some track sessions at Florida International Rally and Motorsports Park. The FIRM has both a road course and an autocross track that we use for testing.

The 95-degree day was a little toasty, but we had a blast with the car. The car is still sporting a mismatched spring and shock combo with the Koni/Ground Control setup on the front and Bilstein/H&R rear—but it still handled well and made it back to Ormond Beach with nary a hiccup.

Our car now has about 800 miles on it since the restoration, and we’re finding less and less bugs to fix. It’s a fun car that we are now driving on a regular basis—the vent windows in the doors are a great solution for keeping things cool on hot days around town.
