Would appreciate some posts from others with successful methods.
I upgraded my GT brakes to GT350 in September. I had to troubleshoot a noise to the parking brake plate being bent enough to rub against the rotor. I've since needed to replace both rear hubs. So we're talking...
2018 Non-Ford 4-cyl turbo SUV, 40k miles
Running poorly, Throws code
We assume it may still be under powertrain warranty, plus we have an ESP, so we take it to the dealer.
Service advisor says it is NOT covered under warranty because it is outside the 5-year powertrain window. They charge 1...
Parting out now. Willing to sell remaining parts separately.
These parts are from a 2019 GT Performance Pack level 1 car, 21k miles. Parts are very clean, good condition.
Originates from zip code 46038. Will estimate shipping for you upon request.
The front knuckles have the arms already...
I am assembling new emergency brake parts (shoes, springs, adjuster, clips, etc.). See photo. The parts kit came with some white lithium grease.
Would brake grease be a better choice to lube the contact points, due to higher temp rating for track use?
I expect that the 2-piece rotor will...
I had success on track running without a diff cooler by double-wrapping my exhaust near the differential, and running 140 weight gear oil
But I finally got the Axle Overtemp warning at the 32 minute mark during an open track day. So I decided to design a fan-less diff cooler.
I worked with the...
Great looking set of wheels needs a new home!
Enkei TY-5 Wheels, 19x9.5", BFG 275/40 A/S Tires. These fit 2015+ s550 Mustangs with 14mm studs.
Wheels' finish is Pearl Black, which is gloss black paint, mirror-cut spoke faces, and tinted clear topcoat.
Runout has been measured to be less than...
I have searched and placed calls, but I can't quite nail down a couple of specific details on this.
Are they the same length?
Do they have the same splines (number and length) at the hub end?
Is there a Ford GT350 axle and a Ford Performance GT350 axle?
Yes, I already know that the GT350 axle...
I use Trip 1 a lot. I typically reset it at the gas pump.
On track I get 5.5mpg. Even though I reset Trip 1 at fill-up after track day, the miles to empty still leans on the low track mpg instead of starting fresh. So I could have a half tank and the car will think I have 50 miles to empty...
I am not new to AA, but I feel befuddled about its behavior lately. Usually it performs without problems.
When I needed it most for a long convoluted trip today, I couldn't get Google maps or podcasts on the center display. Either AA wouldn't attempt to connect or it wouldn't stay connected...
I need switched, low power, for a new circuit.
Interior fuses #22 and #35 show as "Not used (spare)" and have 5A fuses.
Does this mean that there is a wire harness coming out of the back of the box at those fuse locations?
Is it hard to pull the box out enough to see what's going on at the...
No, not for on track, silly. :facepalm:
They're for the hotel stay the night before.
Driving a few hours away the day before a track day
Not sure of the security of the area with the hotel
Wake up to find your car on blocks and your track wheels missing
Out the value of your...
I am considering tapping into my rear defroster circuit for a DIY differential cooler build.
This involves the interior, driveline, and is needed for the track. So I am posting in the General forum hoping for more views, haha.
My idea is
Leverage the rear defroster circuit, which comes...
New, never installed.
J&M uses higher grade spherical bearing.
Wide fork version for special knuckle bearing. (You can also fill the gap with 3/4" washer if needed for OEM rubber bushing.)
$180 shipped to CONUS. PayPal or Zelle.
I want more heat extraction for track days.
I like the look and function of the GT500 vent.
Car doubles as DD, so rain tray is desired.
Yes, I've done some searching, but what are my options?
Cut my orange fury hood, install vent, re-stripe and PPF as needed?
Buy an unpainted hood and start...
Here is my take on DIY wheels cribs. This design variation has a few advantages.
The smaller footprint provides a slightly lighter crib.
The smaller footprint makes efficient use of 13 pieces of 8-foot 2x4s, and that allows for a wider crib, with longer top.
Vertical load is...
