    Building my car into a drift car, lol.

    Upon more thought, im fairly certain my issues come from the rear axle movement and the LSD. What I was thinking is this: Lets say I am drifting to the left with the back end pushing out to the right. the rear axle will be deflected towards the drivers side. As the car transitions, the weight...

    Throttle lag

    in the late 90's-2002 Mercedes c230's with the 2.3L supercharged inline 4 there is quite a lot of lag. The torque comes on hard and low when the ECU doesn't limit the throttle input. my friend got a tune that practically eliminated it (also got a SC pulley for it which helped a lot I'm sure). Im...

    My mustang finally died

    This. especially because for 2014 it has a 2.5l instead of a 2.0 so it has 18x hp instead of a paltry 150. Only a 1mpg hit with the new engine too. good driving dynamics for a crossover. Decent space, looks good compared to the competition (the new rav? barf). For something more upscale Mercedes...

    Building my car into a drift car, lol.

    Would you say locating the rear axle is my first priority? stock almost blown shocks, steering play, and too soft of springs feel like the biggest issue. I agree that the rear axle is a huge problem as I can feel the thing moving around laterally during cornering/drifting. I feel like the...

    So who's left?

    Well I don't really post anymore, but I started again recently after an inspiration to make my car one of the only (that I know of) competitive drift V6 Mustangs. Haven't even hit 60k miles on my 04 screaming yellow v6 haha.

    Building my car into a drift car, lol.

    Well the time has for me to do something with my car. I have been going to a fair number of drifting events at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington. I am interested and I want in. I did a ride along in a few mustangs that were basically bone stock, and was impressed with what they were...

    Review: stock GT sway bar and Prothane rear control arm bushings

    The lower bushings are in. I also removed the rear spring isolators while I was at it. I noticed the reduced sponginess almost immediately. What a difference this makes during gearshifts! No more shimmy every time I engage the clutch. What I thought was severe drivetrain lash was just some...

    SFC install Seattle, WA

    I am looking for someone to install my SFC's for me. I would do it but I don't have all of the necessary skills/equipment. I live just east of seattle, willing to drive a ways for this. I just need someone who knows what they are doing to do this. I don't trust some exhaust shop to determine if...

    Review: stock GT sway bar and Prothane rear control arm bushings

    I recently installed a rear sway bar (stock gt) and tonight I installed prothane upper control arm bushings (lower's go in tomorrow, ran out of time and energy). Other susp. mods include eibach pro springs and that is it. car is stock otherwise. I must say that just the upper bushings with the...
