Gentle, gentle, gentle. the stud's torque value is incredibly low, too, giving an indication of how fragile they are: 8-10 lb/ft. This is 1/4" ratchet territory and care is still needed there.

That's it then. Practice, practice, practice. don't change anything. 2.19 is gawdawful, even for the stock TP tires, with their hard sidewalls and unforgiving nature. You are either launching too...

The risk of breakage later is there. The factory install used no thread lock. You mix any lock with developing corrosion and you may create problems down the road.

I wouldn't put loctite on those little 6mm studs. They snap like peppermint sticks if you aren't careful and they are weld in studs. My nuts are tight (har), after 3 years....

Definitely not a common problem. I drive mine lots of short hops too, often in cold weather. On the stock tune, the car would occasionally hesitate a bit as it warmed up. After tuning it, it was much...

Sway bar end links are a known issue for these cars since 2005. Hard to characterize this as a "major issue" but, it's real. Usually it's clunks and bangs, going over bumps that result from this. I...

You'd have to build EVERYTHING in the engine and spin it to the moon to get anywhere close to that naturally aspirated.

A base blower kit would hit that out of the box.

At that speed, it is probably light gear whine from the rear. This is more common if you have a steep rear gearset: 3.55 or 3.73.

Not much that you can do about it. This is still a budget sports...

If you have breathers no wonder it starts to smell like oil after a while. You need to monitor how much is being consumed in a controlled way.
