If you are not caging the car I would go with 2-way internals vs externals. otherwise, you can run the external canisters up the rear fender vents.

Okay cool I was thinking of running them through the rear chassis vents.

Why do you say the 2 way internals vs externals?

You can order MCS 2-ways with non-remote or remote reservoir canisters. If you are only tracking the car part of the time then non-remote should be fine.

You have to remember SPEC e46 only run a single and those guys push hard. 2 -ways are plenty for part time track cars.

I am running a 1-way on our 3.0 endurance coupe build and a 3-way on my C-Mod coupe. You can go crazy with suspension, but unless you are planning to race the car then the 1-way or 2-way will get you 95% there for what you are going to be using.

If you call over to Bimmerworld and talk to Austin he is very familiar with the set up as well as Trevor at MCS.

Thanks for the info. I have been working with John over at Bimmerworld and just sent him an email asking what I am loosing if I go non-remote over remote. My only thought is if I am already spening $3.5K on suspension might as well just spend the extra grand and get the best set up possible. The pressure adjustment of the remote set up is a cool feature too. I am giving myself till friday to decide.

Loving this thread

I am going to go with MCS because there is great trackside support in the Pacific North West. My Z4M Roadster is a daily driver that may, over time, become a dedicated track car.

I am going with the MCS two way remote set-up because it - theoretically - offers higher performance and - mostly - because it is easier to adjust with the remotes being more accessible.

I have not pulled the trigger yet because COVID hit us fairly hard, but if things keep recovering the way they are (west coast of Canada) I hope to do the suspension upgrade in September.

Yea this is turning into a little MCS mini thread!

You might want look at the two way set up as MCS's new adjustment knob on the two way looks like it might be even easier to adjust then the remote set ups.

You will never be sorry going with MCS, they are local for me and I have ran them on multiple cars.

Wait till you see what I am doing for the rear suspension set up.

I am doing fully adjustable upper and lower rear control arms with Rouge Engineering upper inner control arm bearings, control arm bushings and Syncro RTABS.

I have a machine shop who agreed to develop the upper control arms to match the lower Rogue control arms attached.

I want to do the coilover rear but my roll bar doesn't tie into the shock tower housing. Then I could replace the upper control arm like you.. Millway Motorsport makes a really nice replacement upper control arm and also a cool set of rear outer bushing that move the upper and lower control arms together for supposedly better performance.

What a drool worthy thread! Subscribed to live vicariously through you...and wishing people would call and ask me if I'd like to buy their Z4C 3.0si. Thanks for sharing your builds with this group!

That is the plan, I am going to be sticking in the south East for the rest of the year till both the cars are shaken down. We just got started on the 3.0 while the other car is at the cage builders.

Just finished the face lift on the endurance car. Will be heading to cage once the GT4 car gets back.

First shakedown is scheduled for later this month.

Looks like the aero from the M Coupe went to good use! When does the Goke aero go on the Z4M?

Yeah it's nice to have all the extra parts laying around.

He said it should be ready for shipping on the 28th. We had to add rocker panels as the front and rear fenders go all the way down.
