  1. Tire Review Recommendations?

    I know I'm a little late to this discussion, but here is my "two cents" (FWIW, I'm a HPDE instructor with 20+ yrs of track experience). I bought a set of Indy 500s (265/40-19, square) last spring in hopes that they could be my summer street/track tire. Not good (for me) on track. Low grip...
  2. Are they staying cool on track?

    I have a 2018 EB PP car that I thought was "track ready" when I bought it, only to learn that it too, just like the GTs, needed a host of additional mods to stand up to sustained track use. I still have to short shift at 5K, with a stock tune motor, to run a complete 20-30 min session...
  3. Are they staying cool on track?

    I'm toying with the idea of getting a Mach 1 next year. However, for it to be worthwhile for me, it really needs to be a capable track car out of the box (not including consumables, such as track pads, tires, etc.). I don't want to have to replace radiators, add hood vents, etc. Given all the...
  4. Anyone open up their bumper end intakes on their 2018+ GT?

    I created GT PP style ducts with Vorshlag deflectors. They work well.
  5. Anyone open up their bumper end intakes on their 2018+ GT?

    Cut out driver's side for an oil cooler (instead of mounting it in front of the radiator).
  6. Just for Fun - Real Life Shootout - Ford Mustang GT Vs Porsche 718 S

    My track car for about 15 years was a '72 911 (still have it). About 2350 lbs wet. Mine is modified with a '84 3.2L engine, approx 240 HP. No power steering, brakes, obviously no driver aids of any kind. It is an absolute blast on track. You may want to consider a Lotus Elise as well...
  7. Just for Fun - Real Life Shootout - Ford Mustang GT Vs Porsche 718 S

    Without a doubt, the BIGGEST factor in play on a road course. I learned this many years ago: "A fast driver in a slow car is (almost) always faster than a slow driver in a fast car." Spend some time on track with experienced Scec Miata guys and you may find yourself humbled. BTW, I did it...
  8. BMR Front K-brace, 4 point

    You shed some light on something I completely overlooked, lower control arm bushings. I should've thought of these when I installed the FP Track Pack last year. Yes, I definitely agree the poly bushings would help more than the K-brace. However, the K-brace is cheap enough, and so easy to...
  9. BMR Front K-brace, 4 point

    I installed one on my '17 GT vert. There are no bushings. All four mounting points are metal to metal.
  10. 6spd manual durability

    Ford is still entitled to due process here. Making an accusation, or even filing suit, doesn't immediately imply guilt for the accused (well, at least that is how our founding fathers intended it to be!). The Chevy Corvair saga is a good example of why we should not jump to conclusions...
  11. BMR Front K-brace, 4 point

    I got spoiled with my '72 911 track car (also struts). Very little weight in front, so very easy to control tire wear with only about -1.5 neg camber. I know, "apples and oranges". I guess with close to 2000 lbs on the front tires, they get a workout.
  12. BMR Front K-brace, 4 point

    I thought about this, but I wasn't sure how "repeatable" this would be. Let's say you do a half dozen track events a year. You can tighten, untighten each time, for years, with no adverse effects? Do you need to at least replace the nylock nuts after a while? Just curious.
  13. BMR Front K-brace, 4 point

    I have the Ford Performance Track Pack suspension with camber bolts (resulting in the -2.5 deg camber). It's pretty stiff. Any firmer and it ceases to be practical as a daily driver. I realize lots of serious track setups are running -3.5 deg with camber plates, but again, not ideal for...
  14. BMR Front K-brace, 4 point

    Essentially 0 deg (-0.04 L, 0.0 R)
  15. BMR Front K-brace, 4 point

    2018 EB PP coupe. I'm running -2.5 deg camber in front with a 19x11 305 square set up. I'm still getting a lot more wear on the outside edges of the fronts (fortunately, I can rotate all four around). I still use the car as a daily driver (smaller wheels/tires), so I don't want any more...
  16. SPRING RATES & DROPS: ALL IN ONE THREAD!!

    I think this question has probably been asked before, but is there a good reference source to identify the difference between different OEM springs, that shows the part numbers? For example, I have rear springs from my '18 EB PP that are marked "JRH". The rear springs on my '17 GT Vert are...
  17. SPRING RATES & DROPS: ALL IN ONE THREAD!!

    I only run the 305s for track days (they are Supercar 3Rs, super soft). Street wheels are the stock 19x9s with 265s, Firestone Indy 500s.
  18. SPRING RATES & DROPS: ALL IN ONE THREAD!!

    I run 19x11" w/305s, square. Longer studs and 1" spacer. No issues.
