If you want to stop shorter than 100ft you need carbotech XP12's on all four corners. Those pads are the best pads I've ever had. I almost get whiplash every time I bed in new pads. However, they are...

Airbag Fuse?

The stock front control arms will work fine with a lowered car. Mine is lowered 1.5 inches up front and I don’t plan on replacing it. The rubber bushings are less than to be desired for road racing,...

The bottom hole should be the stock setting. But as scott2 said, measure the stock hole on the OEM unit and compare it to the J&M part. But the bottom hole looks like the right position.

Is it me or are the people in the old mustang behind him not wearing helmets? That's just crazy to go on a track at speed and not wear a helmet, even if they don't require one. I just hope it was a...

I don't think those tires will fit on your wheel. On a 10inch wheel you can probably fit a 305 at most with it keeping the bead. The tire probably won't rub on the fender due to tire height, but like...
