      LS3s tended to suffer from oil starvation under high G use. Not sure about the LS7 but the AMG is dry sump.

      You don't adjust camber just to fit wheels/tires. At least not if you care about handling. That's only for the "stance" folks.

      +1

      Stock R brakes on the street with street tires are MORE than enough. Good street pads + lines + good fluid/fresh bleed + tyrol bushings will have them feeling and working VERY solid.

      I've run them both street and track. Great for the street. If completely stock on the power/engine front, will be OK for occasional track use if you aren't on a track that is known to be demanding...
    8. of swaybars: calling all cornering Zen masters and late-brakers Track or autocross stars,

      In my case at Thunderhill I can't conceive that the car would be any faster with with ESC off. I have stock bars but when I upgrade I plan to do both.
    9. of swaybars: calling all cornering Zen masters and late-brakers Track or autocross stars,

      Oh and re: sway bars, in talking to Chris from 034 who was a professional driver for Honda a few years back told me this. Mid season all of a sudden the APR cars (Jetta MkVs) picked up a few MPH in...

      ESC does what it's supposed to. I track my car and leave it on. The only times it's intervened is when I was about to lose it. Now I may have been able to save it myself but it was definitely a step...
    11. First track day - Some reflections and questions

      For #2, you usually realize it because you feel the car start to rotate and then you feel something catch it that unless you were on top of it wasn't because of you. :)

      No flashing light. I recently replaced coils and plugs, would be surprised if that was it. It's not one cylinder, feels like all of them. Thinking more and more this might be a vacuum leak.

      Any tips on logging? Any parameters that would indicate a vacuum leak vs the N75 valve?

      Already did wheels (lightest forged 18" I could find) so I'm covered there. I have a long list of other things and again just wanted to know what the stock hood weighs. Was hoping someone who had...

      If I tried a (3rd) N75, which version should be purchased? J? H?

      Oh I know the Seibon hood weighs 18 lbs. I want to know what the *stock* hood weighs to know how much weight that would be shedding.
    17. Ohlins DFV Road and Track Coilover (VMS MI10) Install Notes for Golf R

      Awesome. Nice detailed write up. I've been eyeing the Ohlins (dampers only with fixed perch) to use with the Euro R springs that have been sitting in my garage for about 2 years now. Best thing is...
    18. Anyone know how much the hood weighs on our cars?

      I want to change *everything* to something lightweight. Battery and hood among many things.
    19. Anyone know how much the hood weighs on our cars?

      Wondering what kind of potential weight savings might be had w/ a carbon fiber swap.
