Where are the performance goodies w/an automatic?

I currently own a 6MT '13 but I am having health issues, which is giving me problems moving my right leg over to the brake. I naturally drive with both feet with automatics, and I am looking to trade...

What I didn't see in the video was any mention of torquing everything. I definitely would not use air tools to finish tightening the hardware. You can over tighten so easily that way. I think you'll...

Depending on your state and coverage, (Like Mr Nice Guy said) your insurance may pay for the repair. Have you called them about it?

The '13 manual states "recommended fuel--87 octane" (page 160-ish); No mention of 91/93. 8 hp isn't noticeable by the seat of your pants, but, I guess if you are drag racing you will want every horse...

Are you tracking or auto crossing it? If no, I wouldn't worry about the bar. You won't notice it. If you want to spend the money, I would get an adjustable bar so you can tune the suspension a bit...

The super car tire isn't a bad tire. It is also a convertible tire. I think it can handle more weight too.

IMHO, I would be more concerned about the style of the wheel. Is it correct for the...

The Pirellis that come on the Track Pack are the P Zeros (220 UTQG) which are a summer only tire, not an all season tire. They are the same tires that the Brembo package cars get. The P Zero Nero...

I thought about doing that but I have been too lazy to do it. I have an autocross this Sunday so maybe I will remove it and see what happens.

I have the same set up and my pedal sticks to the floor. I'll have to check my friend's Boss and see what he has. His sticks too.

I used bolts (Eibach) one year and the threads stripped out from the repeated adjustments. They never failed except for that. This year I just plan on using a tire I can flip on the wheel so I can...

You are correct, sir.

I've heard of the GT500 assembly fix but haven't read/heard about any success stories.

They had problems with bolts backing out at or near redline. I believe they increased torque values.

My '13 and buddy's '13 Boss (along with many others he races with) has the same issue so I...

You can only see them under flourescent lighting in my garage. The roughness bothered me more than anything so I am pleased for now.

Clayed it and it is much smoother. Didn't take much either. I couldn't get my camera to pick up the scratches though.

I haven't clay barred it. They told me to wait 30-45 days before I waxed it but I could wash it anytime. Yesterday was day 48. I might clay a small section of the bumper to see if that smooths it...

I'm not running a 285, too wide to properly fit the wheel. I think I stated earlier I was running 275s. I've decided to go with the Z2s as well. All Mustangs are now in STU for 2014 not STX which has...

They will "fit". But there is something to be said about the tire being on the correct size wheel though. I bet you could squeeze a 295 on a 9 inch but I wouldn't.
