I had a similar but not as bad situation with mine. In addition to that, the car would not start unless I shoved the clutch pedal damn near through the firewall. After inspecting the clutch pedal at the pivot, I found it was cracked really bad. Also found out this is a common issue. It was a...
I have 75k on my 2015 PP. I have an Excedy clutch with MGW shifter. Have had many an issue with the MT82 and had to have it re-built at an independent shop after multiple dealers told me there wasn't a problem. (broken parts and synchros)
After the re-build it was better but still really notchy...
I've often wondered why Ford did not offer power & heat with the Recaro seat option. I love mine but I wish they were a little more adjustable and the heater would sure be nice on cold mornings.
I've heard they are available outside of the USA but can not confirm.
Same issue here. Had my car in at 3 different dealers and they all said the same thing "nothing is wrong, it's normal". This was all during the warranty period. Ford customer care was no help at all. I got so frustrated I gave up.
Luckily I bought an extended warranty with the car. I took it...
If your vibration does not change with brakes on or off, check wheel bearings and suspension bushings. Possibly the driveline and/or axles too.
I've seen drilled rotors come apart on the racetrack. Not pretty.
Isn't the powertrain warranty 6 years 60k?
I Effin hate the "stealerships". Haven't had a single positive experience at any Ford service dept.
Not many dealers rebuild any major component anymore. They're all parts replacers now.
I am 100% correct on a factory built Corvair. (I have owned a few) I am familiar with the "Corv-8" conversion and this was not an OEM option. Very cool modification though and I have seen a few at car shows.
Those welds that let go do not look like the factory spot welds. Looks like really poor quality MIG welds to me. Is this a salvage title car or has it ever been wrecked before? I've never seen that many welds break loose with no apparent damage to the panels. Might not be a bad thing if they do...
Same issue here on my 15 GT PP. Tires are Firestone Indy 500. Not worn into the chords like OP, but heavier wear on the inside edges while the rest of the tires are great. Found out the toe was not set correctly. Had an alignment done to correct the front toe and now the car is very unstable at...
I've never driven a drag radial so I really can't compare. I'm a road course guy. I can tell you the Indy500's feel planted, do well in the rain and they last like crazy. I got about 35k on my last set of rears and that's with a couple track days. The fronts still have about 30% good tread left.
+1 for the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500. Great all purpose tire. I'm now on my 2nd set and love them. The price has doubled in the last few years (what hasn't) but still better than the Michelin or Conti tires.
