  1. Goodwood Festival of Speed

    Folks it's that time again :clap::clap::clap: GFOS is an amazing event and one not to be missed. It's been on my bucket list for many years and I was fortunate enough to go in 2019 when among other things the record setting electric car autonomously drove itself into a wall. If you ever get the...
  2. Bump steer and roll center

    Hopefully this all makes sense. Car is a PP1 street driven DD and sometimes taken reasonably fast over long stretches of rough/uneven tarmac. It's lowered F 7/8" R 1/2". Lateral link and tie rod angles are at almost identical angles (can't pic a difference by eye) so technically it appears...
  3. GT, M1, GT350 stock ride heights minimal difference

    Just comparing data on stock ride heights (measured from ground to fender lip in mm) and it seems there's not much difference between the GT and the more track focussed M1/GT350 platforms. Also given the high level of track and multi purpose ie DD capabilities of the M1 and GT350 it seems...
  4. Check your 'sum insured'

    TLDR: Prices have raised the value of sum insured for market and agreed value, make sure yours is up to date to mitigate against write-off action in the case of a minor bingle. Hi folks, given car prices at the moment it might be worth checking what your cars - all of them - are insured for...
  5. 2008-2014 C63 AMG - anyone got/had/been in a relationship?

    I'm looking at getting one of these as a 4dr companion for the Mustang (aka 'Silver' as in Hi-Ho, away...) and was wondering if any of you fine folks had experience with them. Not entirely sure if I want the pre-facelift or facelift, leaning towards the pre as it was the original 'nutcase'...
  6. Any window tinter recommendations - Canberra, Adelaide, Sydney or nearby regional?

    Hi folks just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for window tinters in any of these locations? TIA
  7. All in 17 build

    Found this thread in the Projects section and thought some folks here might be interested. This is a serious build. Excellent detail and pic heavy. Definitely worth a look. https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/australian-all-in-17-build.155532/
  8. Mach 1 Debuts at Goodwood SpeedWeek

    Bit of Mach 1 track goodness at Goodwood about 3:14, exhaust mostly drowned out by bikes unfortunately. Mach E turning rubber into smoke earlier if you're interested. https://www.goodwood.com/grr/event-coverage/goodwood-speedweek/2021/2/video-the-12-best-speedweek-debuts Video at 3:14
  9. Different F and R rolling diameters - anyone know why?

    Hey folks, I'm researching tyre options for a 2017 PP1 and it looks like the OEM 255/40/19 fronts are 3/4" smaller in diameter than the 275/40/19 rears. Could be many reasons for this including whatever tire deal Ford could make with Pirelli, but I was wondering if anyone knows of another...
  10. SuperPro bushings vs RLCA

    Just wondering if anyone has installed these in preference to the normal RLCA mod. https://www.suspension.com/superpro/spf4736k Cheers
  11. 2018 Premium console and doors - will they fit into a 2017?

    Hi folks, I've got access to the interior from a wrecked 2018 Premium (?) GT ie the one with the soft touch upholstery. Does anyone know for sure if the console and door trims will fit into a 2017 and work with the 2017 switch gear? It seems from another thread that the console is gtg, just...
  12. Koni Active Suspension

    Hi folks, Just wondering if anyone is running these? Keen to try them and the Koni Importer (Toperformance) in Melb is apparently selling a few but haven't seen anything here. Really appreciate feedback if anyone cares to jump in. Cheers!
  13. N(VH) increase - 305 tires vs susp mods

    Hi folks, looking for some informed opinion about the cause of a road noise increase. About 3000 miles ago I changed rear tires from stock to 305 (PZero) and about the same time installed Steeda RLCAs and rear shock mounts, and FRPP knuckle bearings. Steeda claim no NVH increase from the the...
  14. BBQ tick +/or rattle

    Hi folks, Lots in the US section forums on this. Does anyone know of an Oz delivered car so affected?
  15. GT 5.0 sound tube delete and Magnaflow TruX resonator

    Hi folks, Just sharing my experiences as it might help someone contemplating these mods in the same way I've been helped by others. Sound tube delete. It's a popular modification as people on the US forums in particular report drone/a strange harmonic with the stock exhaust, want to tidy up...
  16. RTX GT350R style wheels - anyone got them?

    Hi folks, Just saw these at CJPony, very similar to the LMR GT350R style wheel it seems. https://www.cjponyparts.com/rtx-gt350r-style-apache-wheel-19-x10-satin-black-2005-2018/p/W1077-V/ Just wondering if anyone is running them, or has compared them to the LMR SVE GT350R reps...
  17. Anyone shipped wheels through freight forwarder recently?

    I'm keen to import a set of wheels from the US, unfortunately the vendor will only ship to a US address. Lots of people use forwarders but it's something I'm new to, and I don't want to risk getting into a situation where they might arrive at the forwarder damaged but the forwarder sends them...
  18. Sync 3 Nav question

    Does anyone know how to get the nav to repeat itself after it announces the next turn? As in you're driving along and it blurts out something and you miss it - I don't like trying to read the next turn on the display when I'm driving. Tried searching the forum and net but can't find an...
  19. Ever been told to 'refer warranty issue to selling dealer'?

    Recently went to a dealer for a 3k 'peace of mind service' and reported that since purchase I've noticed two shiny marks on the driver's side dash pad (black textured piece that mirrors the other side) that are quite noticeable in sunlight, and attempts to remove them with water and a microfibre...
  20. 2017 OEM GT 5.0 tyres ie Pirelli's

    Hi all, Looking to move my stock tyres, have just gone to wider wheels and not keen on stretching to fit. 2000km of very sensible driving on them but they are otherwise as new. Asking $700 neg. Located just north of Canberra but I'm happy to deliver within a 100km radius or work...
