  • Hey guys thanks very much for the feedback and comments and recommendations. So I called the nearest Ford Dealer early this AM. Service manager was very courteous, I told her I had photos I could email in if that would get me some answers...
  • What is the advantage of the s550 setup when the 13/14 GT500 setup is available with very affordable calipers and rotors? With the GT500 calipers you get all the advantages of a longer torque arm and bigger heat sink with the 15" versus 14"... (see full post)

    Here's good picture to show how much the flare covers.

    I've also started on the offseason upgrades. A couple months back I called Maier Racing to see if they were still willing to make some of their SN95 fender flares, turns out they were. I'm also upgrading to some Rocket Racing 18x11's so I can...

    Updates.We ran our last event of the season here in Kansas City. I didn't do near as well as I had hoped but I feel it was respectable given the turnout. I finished 1st in CAM-T and then 7th overall in PAX and 15th overall RAW out of 143...

    My 30+ hp was stock vs Kooks with x-pipe and cats. We see 30 hp as pretty much across the board from s197 to S550 including the gen3 cars. Its the fist thing thats done to the cars that are looking for more power.Interesting note is that my...
  • stevbd reacted to Ewheels's post in the thread 18" or 19" wheels for track use? with Like Like.
    That fully depends on what tires you want to run. 18s have MUCH more availability of slicks and cheaper slicks. 19s have better options for street tires. For example: the Goodyear 3R, fastest street tire out there, only has 3XX series tires in...
  • It also seems a lot of comparisons are between stock headers with cats versus LTH with cat deletes. What is the difference between stock coyote headers and LTH, both with cat deletes? I've had trouble finding that before vs. after test. Is... (see full post)

    SEE!! You got me on the corner balancing stuff. Something I did not know!Thinking back on which holes my lower trailing arms and uca are at is more of a blur since I last measured them in April. Maybe they are mounted at different holes since...
  • stevbd replied to the thread S197 Black Panda.
    In your diagrams, it appears either you adjusted the angles of the rear LCA and UCA via your adjustable brackets or else your diagrams are a little off. Look at either of the diagrams. If you don't change the mounting holes on your brackets... (see full post)
  • stevbd replied to the thread S197 Black Panda.
    At the risk of getting into stuff you already know, I guess I'm a little confused by your statement: "The car was raised by 30mm in the back to shift some of that weight towards the back," followed by your comments about lowering anti-squat... (see full post)

    Well, my fellow track enthusiasts, as you can tell from @raidernixon comment, this past weekend was amazing! It was full of excitement and go-fast! I was able to achieve my goal of 4 seconds over my PB around this track which is beyond words...
