In Topic: Tires 225/45/15 or 225/50/15

Single Point Jack Plates, Low Profile Jack, or 2X6 pine (4).

 

My 240 oil pan sits lower than the crossmember and I can get a Harbor Freight $100 jack under the TC box and diff. I run 16/8/245 all around on a lowered car.

 

I run RA1s on the race car since we can't run slicks in my Group which are 225/25/15(F & R) and and here's a picture at full droop (running with slicks during an HPDE - 225/45/15 -F & 275/35/15- R)

 

Fixed measurement points (center of fender inner lip, rocker, TC rod box, crossmember, diff) would allow us to compare car to car.


In Topic: Stronger motor mounts

Two radiators due to the fan hitting them? Maybe it's time to switch to an electric fan. Frees up some HP and space.

 

I'd love to hear from other folks who race as to whether they see motor mount movement so drastic that the fan goes into the radiator under heavy braking.

My question as well. The idea that the OEM mounts were going bad after 6 months is hard to believe. The ones in the race car are 3 years old and are checked often. The ones in the street Z are even older and they're fine.

 

How the mounts are at idle or at 3000 rpm aren't a concern, I'd like to know what it's like going up to 7000 rpm, down to 3000 and back to 7000 in a matter of seconds at WOT.


In Topic: StanceParts Air Cups

I might even be able to drive into a slanted ramp parking garage. Oh right, the exhaust tone will still set off car alarms.

 

It does however look like a solution to a real problem. The air tank is a bit of an issue however.

I have had only good experiences with Carbotech pads and shoes. This winter I replaced the stock booster, MC and pedals with Wilwood pedals, MCs and new lines.

 

Took the car out on Saturday and it operated flawlessly.
