Here the startsite:http://home.t-online.de/home/thomasbubel/bcwelcom.htm
the link shows the videos
Germany and most of Europe uses PAL. You can buy VCRs that will play both but most people don't. There are also a lot of places that will convert tapes. Can you buy these tapes online and do you know if any sellers do international orders?
the most e36 or e21 have original DTM S14(from92) engines in the cars with around 380PS.
The videos shows hillclimb races.
In Germany you can buy a lot of videos about this races.There are great old cars inside like e21Gr.5/2002 e30M3s/Lancias/Golf1(with over 200PS) and a lot other....
The only problem is that it is another video system in the USA or??
You would love them ;)
It does sound great. I love the sound of a screaming 4-banger. I noticed that Bekker's sells rods and dual valve springs for the 2.3-16V to take it to 9500rpm.
Also, if you go to the site that the video is from, you can see some E36s with 2-2.5L 16V engines...hmmm....I wonder what those are...S14s?
Here are some videos of the same Mercedes that I found a while back:
It kicked M3's ass in few DTM Championships as well:) Both are nice cars, tough choice.
