    Tires: Nitto NT05s versus .....

    Im here to disagree. My nt01s i put on new. 315-30 -18 square. 2 weekends on them. mid ohio and road america last week. I cant rotate tires front to rear because of the back spacing on vorshlag wheels. I can tell you this solid axle car cooks the rears faster then the fronts. no doubt about...

    S197 Transmission Repair - Chicagoland

    Option B- do it yourself- I just put the 3rd MT-82 into my '12 boss. Its not hard at all. But for your problems, you overall need to change the shifter, the clutch and -- sounds like, your trans. If I had to do it all over, Id move to a T-56 or something stronger. Because you need a differnt...

    NT01 Hot Pressures

    Im with CARVER- I chalk em alot. Cold AM sessions are different than high noon vs 4pm sessions. Adjust as needed. Chalk helps make sure you are using the tire properly

    S197 BUILD (REPLACING MY GT350) HPDE

    the 2015+ brembo 6 piston 15" setup is very good for the price. Hawk pads seem to do well with them and are cheaper than many other choices. I have run carbotech and G-loc for years. The DTC 70s front, 60s rear works well for only $200 for a set of fronts and $163 for a set of rears.

    S197 BUILD (REPLACING MY GT350) HPDE

    you will need better brakes. go to the 15: 6 piston setup asap. Espcially is you will be going to blackhawk farms. that track is super hard on brakes. 125 to 50mph 4x per 70 seconds = hard on brakes. these are great track cars and reliable in all areas but the trans. Im going to a c8 zo6 next...

Id at least look through their products and see which ones have...

    Roaring into Fall at Blackhawk Farms

    better bring extra brake pads! such a short course with 4 high speed corners--- and like 80 second lap times -doesnt leave much time for brake cooling. fun track but hard on brakes

    Anyone near road America may 1st with a 2013 gt500 rear rotor?

    I'm at RA and git a crack in the rear rotor all the way to the edge. Rest of rotor and other side rotor are fine. Kind of a freak thing. Anyone have a spare they can sell me? No dealers are open and every parts store has to order em out of Indiana warehouse. Nothing in stock. No luck on Amazon...
