Re: 2018 TIRE INDEX ADJUSTMENTS

You might be taking things too far. What about vehicle weight and tire make - some tires work better on heavier cars, and some on lighter. If a heavy car shows up with a better "light" tire are you going to factor that all in?

I think you are starting to split hairs, IMO.

WTR? WTB? - Fender roller

Looking to rent or borrow for beer, sex, whatever... I need to roll the fenders on mom's Miata to fit her new setup. Anyone have a fender roller I can borrow?

Ford Racing Wheels with Tires (Mustang Fitment)

Selling for BenL, so I might be slow if you have specific questions (or you could just ask him). These came off of his 2010ish Mustang GT. They are currently located with me in Odenton, MD, but I will be bringing them out to Lincoln Saturday if they don't sell here. 19" Ford Racing wheels. Fronts ar...

FS: Drag DR-38s with Rivals - Subaru Fitment

My 2011 WRX is being retired, so I'm starting to get rid of stuff. I have a set of Drag DR-38 wheels, 17x8, 5x100 & 5x114 with the correct legal backspacing for 2011-2013 WRXs (may fit others, but you should check). http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/findWheelDetail.do?bp=5-100&fl=&yr=2011&pc=...

FS: 2011 WRX Rear Konis

I have a set of revalved Koni rear shocks off of my 2011 WRX. These were used by Mike Moran, so they are worth a ton of money. These are revalved with more compression to reduce understeer (or promote oversteer, depending on how you look at it). They were on my autocross car when I ran a front bar. ...

Re: Should Greater than 250 HP be the top Index?

I voted to keep the old index because I hate Cobra people. I propose a 1.05 multiplier for sideburns that extend below the ears, with an additional .01 for every additional cm below the that. Haters gunna hate. https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/429697_3227175682876_1371081865_333...

Re: Bowie results

We usually set up tighter courses early in the season, especially at Bowie with the limited run-off room and loose surface. Plus, everyone's a little rusty at first. I expect the courses will open up a bit more later. I'd like to rent a jack hammer and remove the divider to that lower lot at Bowie....
