prefer the e30 rear suspension when properly configured. This quote is in the Bimmer article on the supercharged M Roadster.
: used on new M3's didn't fit the Roadster so they got the old trailing-arm arrangement. This type of suspension has always had a reputation for creating "end swaping" when pushed hard. Although when speaking with Tuner Motorsports the other day they said for conversion to racing, they preferred the trailing-arm suspension! : My understanding is that the ///M Roadster has a rear suspension similiar to the E30 series cars rather than the
: : E36 ///M coupes and sedans which is supposed to be superior.
: : I heard there just wasn't enough space available at the rear of the ///M Roadster to accomodate the E36 rear suspension. Do I understand this correctly? Also, does the
: : Z3 ///M Coupe (and/or 2.8) have the same rear suspension as the ///M Roadster and if not, what system does it have?
