If you're on a set of RE-71's and you make a run, right after you're done place your palm on the tire. If its hot enough that you're uncomfortable keeping your hand on it, you had better spray them...

I can figure out a solution to raise the main bar up about 4" to allow for wide rims with stiff tires. I'll have to draw up some sort of spacer and have a shop weld it up for me.

Yeah so, it won't work on real wide rims, with super stiff sidewall tires. UGH, I'm a little pissed to say the least. Basically it will need the main horizontal arm moved up about 3-4" for it to work...

I got the tire changer all set up yesterday. It doesn't take up as much space as you'd think. The entire unit is probably around 600lbs. It comes in 3 main pieces. The base itself is probably...

Bought a tire changer/balancer combo, should pay for itself in a few years

I figured it was time, since me and my fiance own 7 cars and I've been getting more serious with the autocross. Like many of you guys I have a great go-to guy that can change/flip tires for me, but...

It must have sold this morning. Lemon title doesn't necessarily mean anything bad. It just means that it spent x amount of days back at the dealership within the first few weeks of ownership.

You're going to be a lot faster when you go "all in" and invest in some proper autocross tires. There are a few players in the 19" wheel market but several more if you can get a set of 18" wheels. A...

Strap through the wheels. You never have to get under the car. They make specific straps with cushioning just for this purpose.

Weird that they would gear the 6th gen 1LE higher than my 5th gen Z/28. I know my engine can rev a little higher, but I don't think I could go 78 in 2nd, even at 7000rpm. I never did the math though,...
