  1. home alignment- thrust angle

    Wheel run out, thermal expansion, and rubber bushings are sufficient to limit the tolerances to ~1/16” for toe.
  2. home alignment- thrust angle

    Use math, some string, and the car only goes off the ground once.
  3. What Coilovers? (OEM like performance, or softer)

    As someone who mix and matches suspension components pretty regularly, I have to say the biggest influence on daily comfort is tire choice and tire freshness, nothing else. Also, the ~160 lb/in front springs and the rear springs that pair with them are way too soft for track work. The hard...
  4. Chassis stiffness and flexing on inclines

    I have also experienced this situation repeatedly at the entry to a specific restaurant. Rear droop = zero. With the snow tires, I would probably benefit from disconnecting the rear swayba because the inside rear is always trying to spin. Too bad I won’t.
  5. A/C Evaporator Factory Defect

    I’m 99% sure I used forscan to tell me the pressure rather than connecting a high pressure gauge when I replaced my condenser.
  6. Transmission drain bolt torque

    If this is a tapered NPT plug like the internet shows, the correct thing is number of turns after finger tight, as torque measurement is exceptionally poor for tapered threads. NPT is typically 1.5 to 3 turns past finger tight. Don’t forget to re-apply some form of thread sealant.
  7. Is this garage cliff going to be a problem?

    I would put a 2x6 or similar across the front so you can drive up in steps.
  8. PP2 Cooling Upgrades? Per criticism…

    There is a massive track cooling thread in the road course section. I recommend just going to the track and seeing what dies first. My brakes and tires stop working way before my diff gets hot.
  9. 2021 Mach 1, Wins SCCA F, Solo National Championship

    i have burned off 275 tires on 11 inch wide wheels. 295 will have no problem on 11.5.
  10. 2021 Mach 1, Wins SCCA F, Solo National Championship

    My real world feel information: Re-71rs makes me smile. A052 makes me smile more. RT660 does not make me smile. A lot of of that has to do with tolerance for being very sideways. 660s shut down too easily when the hooning is supersized. The Bridgestone and the Yoko just make me giggle.
  11. Why would you buy a USED Mustang?

    I got my 2018 GT PP1 with 1000 miles 25% below MSRP. There is nothing the previous owner could have possibly done to make that not a good deal. I always cross-shop new and used cars when making a decision. My 2012 Mustang was new.
  12. 2021 Mach 1, Wins SCCA F, Solo National Championship

    RT660 are also devoid of confidence when cold or wet. The Yokohama A052 is the cold weather tire. With an honorable mention to the Bridgestone re-71rs.
  13. Broken screw extraction

    Center punch the hell out out of it and use a left handed drill bit. It will probably unscrew itself quickly like that.
  14. Winter driving

    And here I am with 4 complete mounted sets of wheels and tires for various purposes. From studded snows to rain tires to 2x autocross dry weather sets.
  15. SCCA CAM-C Thread

  16. Name something on your Mustang that's working as designed and is really irritating.

    it’s on a timer more or less. And the reason for the timer is CO2.
  17. Name something on your Mustang that's working as designed and is really irritating.

    recirculation turns off due to CO2 build up in the cabin makes drivers drowsy. Especially if there are 4 people in the car.
  18. SCCA CAM-C Thread

    The front aero is quite limited. This prevents giant rear wings from making the cars faster. In XS land, the cars are generally running reasonable angles of attack and wing sizes to avoid understeer city.
  19. SCCA CAM-C Thread

    A common ruleset with XS makes a lot of sense including wings. As winter is upon me, I'm more excited by the idea of highway driving in a snowstorm with rear downforce than actually autocrossing.
  20. widebody conversion

    14 inch wide front wheels with like 395 tires. 16 inch wide rear wheels with tire widths higher than I can count. How exciting.
