I have run Sumitomo HTRZ IIIs and Cooper RS3s. The Sumis aren't the best summer tire, but they are reasonably grippy, feel decent and are just filthy cheap compared to most. I liked the RS3s a bit...

I have a 2014 Brembo GT with the 18x9.5" GT500 wheels and 275/40s all around. I have no issues with tramlining or rubbing etc. Had a 2010 GT with the same wheel and tire setup before, and also no...

That is interesting Sharad; I'd never seen that before. Thanks for putting that out there. Will consider it.

Not going to do anything with air springs; just not a route I'm interested in.

Oh I don't need the gap perfectly even front to rear, I just need to be certain the gap isn't more in the front than it is in the rear. I don't mind a little rake, and am not a perfectionist in that...

Springs that lower relatively even front to rear?

I've got a 2014 GT Brembo. Being a person who doesn't like a flat tire to spoil a road trip, I carry a full size spare/jack/wrench in the trunk. This adds some weight, and somewhat evens out the...

Slowbra, that is not correct. My car is bone stock. I had a clutch stayout issue. I replaced the pedal assembly, and thus far I no longer have a clutch stayout issue. Now, if I get a tune and up the...

The fix is in, I think. Installed part number BR3Z-2455-P, which is the part number in the 2011 TSB that supposedly fixes the issue on the early 2011 cars. It arrived looking just like Brazen's pic...

Good to know there's a difference. Perhaps they figured it out and put the two-spring pedal on Track Pack cars (which probably makes the pedal a bit stiffer) but left the rest of us with the...

I just don't get it on the clutch. Clearly you are getting the most out of the car and using all of the rpms, and have no issues. Yet it's common to have the issues I do on mine. It's like they got...

Good deal. Thanks for the track report. I'm considering a very similar if not identical setup for mine, so good to see that it works well for one guy at least. I'm going to the track in mine next...

Seems like the Bullitt came with Tokico HP dampers from the factory. If so, I suspect the STR.T would be a similar quality replacement. No reason not to do that IMO.

I had Koni Sports (and Steeda...

No need to mess with rotors unless yours are shot. I have run Hawk HP+ and XP8s, and on a budget would go with HP+ for autox. Very good bite, and aren't going to fade at all in autox. Maybe switch to...

So you've got a coil on the pivot of the clutch pedal AND an assist spring. I most certainly do not have any kind of spring up at the pivot. I also noticed my assist spring is red, while others I...

Assist spring is on the clutch pedal itself. Numerous threads out there about removing it.

My car is stock. So whatever the stock limiter is (6850-7000?) is the max rpm my engine has ever turned.

And with the assist spring, I should clarify that I never had the pedal actually stick...

What is the true fix for this gawdawful clutch?

So I've got a new 2014 GT, and with 1300 miles on it now I've been starting to drive it 'properly'. Meaning it sees 7000rpm or so from time to time. Upon redlining the car for the first time, the...

I'd say start with HP+ at a minimum, and you can skip stainless lines if the budget is tight. Good for feel, but not critical to overall performance. The stock brakes are, as you quote, 'good...
