    Thank you for the article Tob. I am happy to hear Ford is keeping it alive. However the thread title is 2023 GT500. Would you agree it isn't happening?

    Ok, it sounded like you just threw it in there.
  7. Just ordered Antigravity Lithium Battery

    It needs to have a full charge before you hook it up to the electrical system. Edit: Ill.expand on this. Your electeical system is smart. It knows the current charge state of your old battery and it will get thoroughly confused if you mess with what it knows. It is important that your oem...

    why not? repairs are pretty easy and you get to have the car as it was designed. I used to think like you.

    We all know who he is. A simple google will reveal that. If the car he is running now is a body in white, that is news to me. He had a red R that I thought he turned into what it is today.

    And my argument would be that under no circumstance the ceramic that remains on the wheel should be loose. If what's left on the wheel is not firmly stuck to the carbon wheel, it is delamination. If the ceramic was not adhering correctly to begin with, that would cause the ceramic to fall off...

    Heat is epoxy's worst enemy. All epoxies at a certain temperature beging to soften. The epoxy that CR uses is a closely guarded secret. It is UV resistant, very high heat tolerant, but only to a point. If a wheel was run hard, like I run them at Daytona, and the ceramic was missing or...

    Exactly. Mine showed a hairline crack around the circumference of the whole wheel. If you tapped on it, it sounded hollow and would slightly move. Delamination.
  16. Carbon Wheel Experience Regarding Damage

    Don't take no for an answer. They might use road debris excuse, but you stand firm that the reason it happened is because the ceramic is not adhering to the carbon fiber. If they deny, take it up the food chain. Edit: Make sure that a Carbon Revolution tech at Ford is aware of the nature of...
  17. Carbon Wheel Experience Regarding Damage

    Here is my next project. For this one, I will have to 3D scan a perfect wheel and make molds. May too much work to do the gorilla tape method and sand it by hand to match the contours This should turn out nice when I'm done with it. Another example of how F'd up these wheels can get and...

    I'm serious. That should be replaced under warranty. I had one like that, it was replaced.

    It's a purpose built race car. I remember when it was closer to a standard R. It was a Red R that replaced his black one.. IIRC, that black R of his was a '15. Ouch. He has since gutted the red R, wrapped it, and turned it into what it is today. What I like about him and anyone else in the...
  20. GT500 Carbon wheels on my GT350 - please help

    That's an easy fix. Get a small syringe and mix some.stone coat (art coat) and apply a drop over the chip. Wet sand and polish. Good as new. Edit: I did PPF my wheels. You are right, them tires throw stones even better than a wife can.
