DOT 4 is a great upgrade if you ever drive your car on a track at all. I think you should use DOT 4 for your car no matter what because it is a superior fluid to DOT3. Yes you have to flush it every...

I'm looking for a 2010-2012 mustang trunk. It cannot have a spoiler attached to it. Color does not matter. Thanks.

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...

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...
