  1. Recommendations on Open Tilt Car Trailer, Please.

    The Aluma trailer I had was a real nice option for the price. It was different than the one above, in that mine did not have the extra step of the ramps, but I can see where that would probably improve the approach angle. I also had to lay down 2x lumber to get the nose up a little before...
  2. "Surprise" PP2 Short comings for track use, not easy to remedy

    Yes, if the wheel bearing has allowed the rotor to have play, and the pressure from the weight of the vehicle pressing it to one side then it will rub on the brakes more than it its standing up straight. Both times it has happened to me on my mustang I was able to notice a slight bit more brake...
  3. Fluids

    I use Motul 660 in the brakes change it out about every 6 months with a little of it blead off and replaced at each track event prep. As for engine oil I use 10w30 Amsoil race oil and only swap it when the computer tells me to. That monitor does not go by miles it uses some kind of algorithm...
  4. s550 ride heights?

    Mine is 24” fender to bottom of the wheel on 18” wheels both front and rear. It probably could use slightly more rake so I would say the 24” front 24.25” rear would be a spot on place to start.
  5. s550 ride heights?

    I will check tonight but I believe mine is set at 5" to meet NASA standard, and with -3 camber on the front I am just fine. Any lower than this and the geometry of the suspension is not correct and will induce some bump steer and other set up relate issues. In your case running MCS coil overs...

  7. South Carolina Trade 19x11 apex track wheels and tires for Mach 1 take offs with PS4s tires

    Any chance you want a set of 19x11” Apex EC-7 in satin black with federal 595rs-pro tires with one track day on the tires. Tires are 305/30/19 square and they are for my S550 mustang. This was my first set of track wheels, then I changed to 18” for dry track tires and I’m looking for a set of...
  8. "Surprise" PP2 Short comings for track use, not easy to remedy

    I have had failures on the front ones 2 different times. In both cases it caused excessive brake pedal travel, which on track leads to a lack of confidence in your brakes. With the bearing failing it causes slop in that wheel which causes the rotor to push slightly on the brake pads when not...
  9. Recommend me a clutch, track duty..

    I run the McLoud RXT in mine, since the factory one flew apart on a Time trial weekend. It would be a little harsh on the street but with probably 30 track days on it, I would do it again for this application.
  10. Kumho v730 305/30/19

    Only time rain was a real sketchy issue was when it was actively raining and water was flowing across the track. There were 3 or 4 spots like that, and any painted surface but I thought they did a decent job.
  11. Kumho v730 305/30/19

    I figured I would post back to this with more info on what I have found with these tires. Just like other reviews I have read online these tires seam to wear like steel. I now have 7 days of competing in NASA TT with these tires and they are still on pace with anything I have had so far at the...
  12. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    This was my thinking all along, and so far it has not been an issue. I got a 3:73 diff from a PP car on ebay for less money than the parts to add diff cooler, so I went with the, will replace it if it fails approach. Since my car is a base model it did not have the temp sensor in the diff so...
  13. Possible Glazed Pads After Track Day

    I was also thinking warped rotors or bad wheel bering assuming no air in line and good fluid. With either of these you will have the pads pushed into the caliper between press's on the brake and it will cause more brake pedal travel.
  14. How to enjoy new Mach 1?

    There was a really nice Mach 1 that went into a tire wall at CMP yesterday doing NASA HPDE-1 with an instructor in the car, So the risk is very real, but its also on a whole different level of fun. I have never snorted coke but I have to think doing your first track day is like doing your first...
  15. Alignment recommendations

    If I had to do it again I would start with low traction tires. When I was around 7ish track days into this thing I hit 3 track days in a row that had rain. The 3 rain events taught me more about driving my car at the limit than the whole 4 to 5 years I have been doing this. Shitty tires will...
  16. Alignment recommendations

    For NT555 G2's the street settings listed will probably work pretty good. As you put more of a track tire on it you will want more camber. As you gain experience on the track you will probably want less toe in on the front possibly even a touch of tow out, but for first day on your tires stick...
  17. Federal 595RS-PRO tires

    I have had many sets of 595 rs/rr and a few sets of the RS pro's. The pro's seam to turn in a little sharper but I would say they are similar. They are not the best for a blazing fast single lap but they are great for HPDE / Test and tune days. I would assume they are decent autocross tires and...
  18. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    This When budget is not a issue and you want a turn key factory car that is not modified, to use as a dual purpose car I dont know if there is any better option. The GT3 and C7 Zo6 are the only 2 cars that are consistanly faster than mine on HPDE days with factory ish cars. Full race car...
  19. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    I was just brinnging up that point because of the number of hrs of sleep I lost trying to decide if removing the AC was a good idea. In my case it was, but no 2 people on this fourm have the same goals or budget, so I was just proposing the other side of the I would never do it or I wish I had...
  20. Track Time Limited due to High CHT

    Or you could go with this theory and make your current car a dedicated race car. I pulled mine and added the Watson racing radiator close out ducting with big oil cooler and I have not had the first issue with heat since. Having said that I don't drive this car on the street hardly at all...
