  1. Carrier bearing movement?

    I am curious how much movement there should be in the driveshaft center carrier bearing. Obviously the bearing itself should be tight but I am wondering about the rubber in which the actual bearing is mounted. I am chasing a small vibration and have discovered that I can wiggle the shaft...
  2. Unusual vibration

    I know there are other threads about vibrations but my issue seems different. Up until about a month ago, my 6500 mile 2018 GT was smooth at all speeds. Now I have a vibration through the steering wheel beginning at around 48 mph and stopping at around 53 mph. It is ONLY during that narrow...
  3. Digital dash configuration

    I apologize if this has been asked and answered somewhere already but if it has, I can't find it. How do you get this configuration with the digital dash?
  4. Last event of the season = new PB

    I got into the 11.8s (barely) today but my trap speed was off about 2 MPH from 2 weeks ago. We had a stiff headwind today and that probably is why my speed was down. I am still satisfied with the result considering the only mod are the drag radials. I
  5. Better air + better tires = PB

    I got to the track and mounted up my MT ET street R tires. Fortunately, it was a cooler day than the last time I ran. FINALLY I was able to run without violent wheel hop on the 1-2 shift. I know the 60s are not very good. That was strictly driver caution. I didn't know how the tires...
  6. MT ET street R vs. M & H Racemaster

    I am getting some drag radials for my 2018 A10 an will be using 17 X 9 rims. I am torn between ET street Rs in 275/40-17 and M & H Racemaster 275/50-17. The MTs would are 26.1 tall vs. the M & H which are 27.8. I am thinking the MTs, being a bit smaller around, would provide me a bit more...
  7. Learned something at the strip

    I have been fighting wheel hop at the 1-2 shift when I use drag mode with my Pirelli all season tires. It has been so bad that I had to use sport+ or track mode instead of drag. I kept a set of 285/35-19 BFG Comp 2 A/S on 10 inch wheels from my last Mustang so I put them on the car to see...
  8. 2nd time at the strip with my 2018

    My car now has about 900 miles on it and the DA at Brainerd yesterday afternoon was around 2700. I ran 12.47 @ 115. For comparison, 455 HP Camaros were running 12.55-12.65 at 113. I simply cannot use drag mode. It spins and wheel hops too badly on the 1-2 shift and then the engine falls...
  9. First time with my 2018

    I hate to make excuses but I think my 2018 A10 GT deserves a little break. The DA at Brainerd last night was 2800-2900. My car is not broken in. It only has 600 miles on it. I did the runs in Sport mode and not drag strip mode because it either hits the rev limiter in Drag mode or the...
  10. Opinion on stripes

    OK, I know opinions are like butts. Everybody has one. However, I would like to hear yours. I have purchased this 2018 Mustang and the dealer had already added the hood and trunk lid vinyl and also the stripes near the rocker panel. They have agreed to remove them if I don't like them...
  11. Wheel hop - 6A vs Manual

    Sorry if this has been asked before and I just couldn't find it. I am curious if guys who drag race with a 2015-2017 automatic have any wheel hop issues. I am not talking about supercharged or heavily modified cars; rather stock or those with just a tune. I have a 2016 with a manual and...
  12. 275/40r19 vs 285/35r19

    I have 245/45r19 on the front on 9 inch rims and 275/40r19 on 10 inch rims on the rear. Tire diameters are nearly the same at 27.7 I am tempted to replace the rears with 285/35r19s. They would be 26.8 inch diameter vs. 27.7 for the front tires. Do you think that difference would be...
  13. Should I go too heavy or too small?

    I would love your opinions. My GT came with the heavy 20" wheels and 265/35-20 Pirelli P Zeros. I recently picked up some used OEM 18Ă—8 rims with all-season Michelin 235/50-18 tires to use during our cold weather. When I go to the track in April, which of these poor choices would be the...
