    BFI Heavy Weight Golf Ball Shift Knob - Install

    Im sure that would be fine, just may be difficult to remove if you want to change knobs later. Also, make sure you get the MS.

    Michelin PS4S Vs Hankook RS4's for track and street use

    I don't have any experience w the RS4s, but I would say probably worth checking out the RE71Rs. From what I've heard they get pretty solid mileage for dual use and are quite quick and puns a track (they are 200tw). Depending on budget, I would also checkout the Michelin Cup 2s. They are great at...

    Pure White Weekend Warrior

    Pulled the trigger on a new Mazda CX-5 Carbon Edition yesterday! I guess I am officially a Mazda fanboy now. lol. Pics below. Will post my RSe10s in Classifieds section in the next few days. Need to clean them up a bit and take some pics.

    Pure White Weekend Warrior

    On a slightly separate note, I have a set of 18x8.5 +45 Hyper Black RSe10s with brand new 235/40 200tw tires in my garage that I'd love to sell to one of you all at a deal if you're in need of a track set. They are straight but a little scuffed. Will post some pics this week. Could probably let...

    Pure White Weekend Warrior

    Ended up selling the car this weekend to a friend for 15,000 (who's going in eyes wide open on cars past experiences, etc.). Sad to see it go, but moving on to the next chapter (which will likely be an SUV of some sort). With the Miata in the garage, I just couldn't justify having manual...

    Pure White Weekend Warrior

    Its officially listed. We'll see if there are any hits. Still contemplating my options over here. Should probably sell and buy something that the fiancé can drive (she's not a manual person... as hard as I've tried). I already have the Miata as a fun track car so it makes sense to offload the...

    2021 HPDE Plans

    @R Golf I'm officially signed up to run at the Glen on 5/3 (VW discount) long course day. Hope to see you there. Anyone else interested in joining? Would be fun to get a crew of VW people together. Edit: Also updated the list in my prior post with current and corrected info/dates.

    Pure White Weekend Warrior

    This happened to me last winter as well and it was beginning to act up a little bit again prior to the accident. I brought it in to the shop last winter when it got so bad that I could barely put it in gear. They replaced the clutch (with the same stage 2 endurance southbend kit) and a leaky...

    Pure White Weekend Warrior

    Taking some time to get the brake light issue figured out. Disassembled and removed bulb, no corrosion and filament looked fine, reinstalled and still having issues. It's been intermittent since then, guessing it may be a short somewhere along the line. Bringing it by the shop to have them try...

    Back of the Dragon (VA) Dec. 3 2020

    Mine has saved me many times. I would highly recommend for longer road trips if it is legal in your state. I drove from Denver to Boston and the radar detector probably saved us from being pulled over three or four times. It's not an excuse to stop paying attention, but it's definitely IMO a...

    Back of the Dragon (VA) Dec. 3 2020

    Did you do the roadtrip with no radar detector 🤷‍♂️ You are nuts. Looks like it was an awesome day! Any excuse to have some fun in these cars is a good one. Great pics @GTI Jake Thanks for sharing.

    Suspension modeling

    Superpro quotes 30% and 50% over OEM for both their front and rear bars depending on which setting used.

    Thanks Brian, well said. Your comment about the stiffer bars reducing compliance across the axle is what I was getting at, but was having a hard time explaining. That makes sense to me. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't misunderstanding. I'm thinking about altering my setup a bit. Will likely...

    Suspension modeling

    I'm guessing the reason most track and street setups have less stiff rear spring rates is for bump compliance. For an autocross where you are primarily taking low speed corners on a surface that is relatively flat, it is probably less of a concern? Edit: also as david mentioned, comparing spring...

    Suspension modeling

    I understand you stiffened the rear springs to add more roll resistance in the rear and aid in oversteer, but stiffening the rear bar would accomplish the same thing, correct? Are there tradeoffs you considered when choosing one method over the other for your setup? It is my understanding that...

    Suspension modeling

    From what I can find, it looks like the Ohlins R+T are also setup with stiffer front than rear (399/285). @xXDavidCXx what was the rationale for adding such stiff rear springs vs stiffer rear bar (or do you have both), class limitations?
