  1. Wheel cleaning day

    (Not shown - the 4 on the car which also got cleaned). Took a bit less than 2 hour, and that just to sponge them all off. No paint correction or detail work at all. I’ve been daily driving on the track pads, so they all had a ton of brown brake dust. Its nothing soap and a sponge won’t wash...
  2. Pressures for A052s?

    Any tips on hot pressures for 315/30R18 A052s? I've heard as much as +10 psi higher than what you'd use on other similar tires. I've never run these before and I need to get up to speed quickly :)
  3. DIY splitter v1.5

    Just some pics of my second version of a DIY splitter. This time the core is marine plywood which should hold up better to the elements with less effort put towards sealing it from water. The last one I made held up for a good while, but eventually picked up a visible warp which was bugging...
  4. max power for stock diff?

    My friend is doing a blower (supercharger I think) and targeting like 600-800hp Would be an auto car. How much power before the differential is an issue?

  6. Canerds

    Is what you call people who put canards on their cars? AJ Hartman canards with a custom DIY splitter. Definitely a lot going on!
  7. Brake vacuum assist

    Has anyone done a vacuum canister or electronic boost pump on an S550? ‘16 GT will sometimes not have enough brake vacuum (hard pedal) if I come off a sustained high RPM straight and stab the brakes without a bit of a pause. If I pause between acceleration and brakes its always fine. I’ve...
  8. PCV and valve covers- smoke after a long left carousel

    So I’m getting a ton of oil smoke when going 10/10ths but only after a loong left sweeper. GT w/ 80k miles. ‘18 intake manifold. Everywhere else on track its fine. Drivers side catch can is ok, only a bit of oil. Definitely oil in the passengers side line tho and no catch can on that side...
  9. Sim rigs

    Lets see those sim rigs. VR, monitor setups, DIY or bought. this budget rig one is almost ready. I didn’t want to spend a lot on hardware until I know how much I’m actually going to use it. seat and dash/pedals are two different parts, so hopefully easier to stow away when not in use...
  10. center armrest / storage lid removal

    Anybody know how to remove the padded armrest lid on the center console? Mine I think is rattling. Who knew that part could rattle too?
  11. Intakes with hood vents

    I have hood vents. All the hood vents. i figured a Steeda closed ProFlow intake might be a good match for a ported 18 intake and an E85 tune but seems like the mass airflow quality sucks, so idle and driveability suffer. Still working with the tuner but signs are pointing at ditching the...
  12. '18+ stock GT air intake?

    Anybody have a stock airbox for an '18+ MY GT lying around they aren't using? I'm having issues with an aftermarket intake and want to try a stock '18 one.
  13. For those switching between E85 and pump gas tunes, how do you remind yourself which gas/tune you're on?

    For those who are running both E85 and pump tunes, do you do anything to remind yourself which gas is in the tank, so you don't cross the streams accidentally? Just curious.
  14. Throttle Body compatibility?

    I have a '16 GT. Can I run an '18 throttle body (I've been told yes by the parts vendor and no by the tuner. I'm guessing the tuner correct?) GT350 Throttle body? Thanks,
  15. Texas WTT: 3.73 Torsen for 3.55 Torsen

    Looking to trade a GT's 3.73 Torsen and pumpkin housing for a 3.55 Torsen.
  16. Engine bay cleaning

    Man, I'd been avoiding cleaning my engine bay, but after 5 years and 67k miles it was getting kinda gross in there. I was reluctant to pop the hood in public for the shame. Years ago I really discolored the aluminum block on a car by using simple green on it and I was concerned about getting...
  17. Falken RT660s

    Anybody run the new Falkens yet? Interested in comparisons with the RE71R for autocross use. I'm currently sitting on square 19x11s so the A052 is out. I've read the Tire Rack comparisons with the A052 and RS4.
  18. 3.73->3.55 difficulty (Torsen 2015 MT-82)

    I'm considering changing gear ratios to try to get more top speed in 2nd (Autox car). How bad/expensive is it to swap the 3.73 gears in my Torsen to a 3.55 or a 3.31 (keeping the Torsen, obviously)? The other routes are maybe changing to a Tremec or even a trade with a 2018+ MT-60 owner, IDK...
  19. Custom 8" Tablet Mount - Need Ideas

    I've got this nice Galaxy Tab A 8" Tablet and a good RAM dock for it, but I need some ideas for how to securely mount it to the interior of the car. The tablet w/ dock and a 6" RAM extension arm is nearly 2 lbs, so its pretty heavy and mounting it to anything with flex to it isn't working out...
  20. low clutch pedal (intermittent)

    Once and a while, my clutch pedal seems to get stuck in a low position (like halfway), and won't fully disengage the clutch. When its stuck like that it won't fix itself, but an easy lift with a hand or foot will return it to the normal resting height. Anybody know what might be the issue...
