I try to run as much negative camber as possible. With Koni yellows, I can only get about -1.5 degrees. A little bit of toe-out in the rear seems to make turn-in quite easy. Is that front and back on the camber to the same spec, or should one be more than the other? Also same with toe, any idea how...

Autocross alignment setup?

Basically what the title says. I have access whenever I want to a nice fancy digital alignment machine. So what would you suggest for an auto-x alignment set up as far as camber and toe goes? This is also a temporary daily for me when the SRT is down (which seems to be often as of late) so I cant ge...

I was planning on bleeding the brake system out, I was talking to dad about it (ASE certified mechanic) and he was curious by which method you would suggest doing that.. Completely draining the system and refilling/bleeding it, or gravity bleeding and as the level gets low in the master cylinder, ke...

Its at the site of the old Cumberland National road race (Cumberland, MD) that was wildly popular in the 50's and 60's. Its at an old airport, not 100% sure on the size of it as it is my first time going. With going to the 2gn brakes, is that just the fronts or front and back? Also, can you just use...

2gn calipers/rotors on a 1gn? (preparing for autox)

Okay, so as I read through the different threads in here I saw a few people talking about using 2gn calipers/rotors on their 1gn. Is this easy to do / effective / difficult? Are they bigger than the 1gn calipers or what is the difference? The reason I ask is because my ACR is in desperate need of br...

okay thanks... Must be an SRT only problem then. Any other ideas of what could be causing it?

I was thinking, it is a non-modular clutch and lightweight flywheel if that makes any difference?

I have a nice rattle in the transmission area on my 97 ACR. It rattles so loud you can hear it over the motor (header and full catback) and when I push the clutch in it goes away. Also makes alot of noise on a decel. Previous owner has already put 2 TOB's in it since the non-modular clutch / lightwe...
