  1. Firestone Firehawk Indy500 tires are much better than I expected

    OP likely has 20 inch wheels. Indys are not available in 305 size for 19 inch rims to the best of my knowledge.
  2. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    hey, thanks for the explanation, it really helps understand what exactly you are referring to. just my opinion - no need to get upset, we are all trying to figure out a collective solution, I don't feel that anyone is trying to ignore you, but that's just my view. I'll wait for others comment...
  3. Firestone Firehawk Indy500 tires are much better than I expected

    was your instructor's name Louis by any chance? 😄. I was doing HPDE as well, in fact driving in novice group and first time on track type of experience.
  4. Firestone Firehawk Indy500 tires are much better than I expected

    I have driven them to the track at around 35-37F ambient on public roads, and driving around track at 45-50F ambient. had zero issues. Also driven on them multiple times in the rain on normal roads and had 3 rain sessions on the track. zero issues as well. of course, extra caution is necessary...
  5. Firestone Firehawk Indy500 tires are much better than I expected

    one thing I would add to this review is that Calabogie is the king of tire destruction :devil:. 20 turns over 5km track is not a joke, and surface seems to be very abrasive. it completely annihilated my new set of stock PP1 Pirelli's within 2 days. Since then I purchased a set of Indy 500 and...
  6. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    So how do you accomplish that 185F CHT?
  7. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    so I had few very interesting chats with Al from RaceLouvers while choosing the best configuration for my needs, will leave it out here if anyone is interested: 1) between center or side vents options, either one is expected to have roughly the same efficiency. Center vent is positioned better...
  8. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Which nittos are you referring to? For the street use, indys are simply amazing as long as they get some heat first. Even on a track, they are still fun to drive and wear looks great so far. For the price, it's a no brainer.
  9. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    yeah, two bucks per liter of regular fuel is pushing it to a point when some life decisions need to be made. I think it will just get worse in near term.
  10. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    some extreme cases are not covered 😁. one might want to upgrade to 4x4 to add some mass. my cars usually get wheels swapped twice a year before and after winter, but wheels sometimes still refuse to go off without a slap. anti-seize on drums seems to be making sense, but I never tried it.
  11. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    If your wheel ever get "glued" to a hub, remove all lug nuts, then thread one back on just enough to prevent wheel from falling off. Take a piece of 2×6 and gently whack inner side of the tire sidewall with it. Don't hit the rim itself. One light punch is typically enough to unstick it. I saw...
  12. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    Yeah, I might pick up center gauges from GT350 at some point. My vacuum gauge is pretty much useless anyways. Otherwise, CHT is the key one to monitor.
  13. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    I don't have it in my digital cluster as an option, and it seems to be the same with others: https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/missing-engine-oil-temp-gauge-on-2019.114940/ I can monitor battery charge, but not oil temp, duh, thank you ford :facepalm:
  14. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    How do you guys retrieve the inferred oil temp? I cannot seem to find a PID for it that works through my obd2 connector, and I don't have a gauge for it in the digital dash.
  15. Strategies to keep cats from melting

    Understood. If it loses efficiency, but still maintains the flow and does not create a risk of engine failure, I would let dealer figure it out. I'm just looking to confirm that I can keep driving the car while they are working with roush on whatever the issue is.
  16. Strategies to keep cats from melting

    Thanks! That helps, but guess my question was more about operating conditions during the test. Should I be doing it while on cruise control going at certain rpm, or just driving around, or logging at idle while car is stopped? Any other things to take into consideration?
  17. Strategies to keep cats from melting

    Thanks a lot. The problem that I have is that I started getting P0430 errors, but my dealer keeps insisting that these are tune ralated and they are working with Roush on analysis and getting an updated tune from them. One update that they installed recently did not really fix anything. As long...
  18. Strategies to keep cats from melting

    What's the proper measurement/logging procedure and how much of a fluctuation is considered normal? Appreciate a small knowledge share 🙂
  19. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    If you refer to CHT's, then I'm not sure how it's even possible, to be honest. 195-200F is the normal temp for me when I'm cruising on highway in 6th. I see 185F only when engine is not fully warmed up. The moment I find myself in traffic in a relatively hot day, temps start climbing up above...
  20. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    Exactly. The difference between 50F/raining vs 65F/sunshine is 15 degrees difference in CHT in exactly same car setup and driving skill level. That's why I feel that any heat extraction would bring a big benefit. Even if it's 5 degrees reduction, it's great as long as it's consistent. Ducting...
