Which style and size? For the five spoke Bullitt style wheels, the numbers I've found are 21 lbs for the 17" and 25 lbs for the 18". Other stock wheels should be in the same ballpark for the same...

I had my 2001 Bullitt and my 2008 GT at the same time for around two years. Really liked both of them, but in the end the S197 just did everything better than the New Edge/SN95. It handled better,...

My torque wrench only goes up to 150 lb-ft, and I've been torquing mine to 145 lb-ft and haven't had any issues. I've swapped out the front struts 3 or 4 times, autocrossed on the car numerous times,...

Mine didn't slip when I had them on my '01 Bullitt or my current '08 GT, but most of the time when I was autocrossing I wasn't on R-comps. Most of the problems I've heard of them slipping have been...

With those four choices I'd probably go with the Hankook. I've been autocrossing on them (on my Miata) since the beginning of last year, and they manage heat very well. I'm getting ready to buy a set...

Looks like National Trail Raceway with the Ohio Valley Region of the SCCA? Unfortunately I missed that event, although after hearing reports about the weather, I'm kinda glad I didn't make it. We had...

The swaybars in that package would be decent, but I'd pass on the shocks/struts and springs. Konis are on sale right now, Koni STR.T's are good if you're on a tight budget, or the yellow adjustable...

I watched that with great interest. I've been a Mustang fan for 25 years (I've owned four since 1988), but in the last ten years I've really grown to appreciate small, lightweight, good handling...

I had a set of the Eibach camber bolts on my '08 GT for a year or two, and numerous autocross events. They didn't slip, just removed them when I changed out my struts and shocks last week. I wouldn't...

IIRC when stock my '08 GT had -.75° camber in front, with Steeda Ultralite springs, it went to around -1.75° and when I installed Eibach camber bolts, went to -2.5° camber.
