    Anyone with a hybrid brake setup?

    Alot of people (myself included) recommend HPS pads. My friends use them on their Mustangs and M3's.

    THE Brake Component Review Thread

    Brand & model: Hawk HPS Pads Price paid and from where: $80 pair front, $65 pair rear from tirerack.com Pros: Very good grip. Only driven them for a little bit, but once you bed them in you can feel them bite. Cons: None yet. Barely done 50 miles on them. Final verdict: These are really...

    24mm Rear Sway Bar & End Links Compared to OEM

    Sorry to revive and old thread/hijack this one, but I didn't want to create a brand new one for this. When I put in my new sway, I stripped the Allen screw so when I stick in an Allen wrench, I cant turn anything. How do I get my endlinks off? This is the side that connects to the car frame...

    Re: car stalling out I have this problem on my V6. It does it randomly like once a month and when the error code was read out, it gave me something about a misfire. I am going to change my spark plugs and see if that doesn't fix it.

    New pads and rotors

    So I installed my rear rotors and pads and bled the lines with a friend with the car off. Was this wrong? Cause when I turned on the car again, I could pretty much floor the pedal and it felt unbelievably loose. The brakes do work, but what do I do to fix it? Should I bleed everything again...

    New pads and rotors

    Just installed the front rotors and pads but ran out of light so tomorrow will do the back ones. As I was breaking them in, I noticed that there was a little bit of scraping and squealing sounds. Normal, I guess, since they're so new. Then I decided to test my ABS. Maybe it's just me, but I...

    New pads and rotors

    Alright, I may go ahead and change the fluid then. What about the rear brakes? Do I need to do anything special with the parking brake or anything like that? Or is it just like the fronts?

    New pads and rotors

    I think my sticker from the dealership says 5W-20 is why I said it in the first place. What about our rear brake setup? How does the parking brake fit into it? Do we have a rear drum along with the rotors? If so, how does taking apart the calipers and stuff fit into the parking brake? Is...

    Official Random Photo thread

    We had a hi-liter party a while ago. This was taken in pitch black with just black lights around. Cool effect. ISO was cranked all the way up though. Any ideas on how to get rid of noise? Or better yet, can anyone do a touchup for me? That would be awesome. VTAK!

    Engine turn over then stall

    I guess it's somewhat reassuring to know that others have had this problem and I'm not the only one... Thanks for the input guys. I guess I'll just leave it be until something really bad happens and THEN take it in to the shop.

    Hey everyone. Been a while, but I got a DSLR and remembered that there's a whole place at 6GA dedicated to this stuff, so I'm gonna be visiting a lot more often. I recently got a Nikon D90 and came with the kit lens (I believe Nikkor 18-105?). Anyway, I'm a complete noob at this stuff but I...

    Intake Noise

    Haha. I was scared of this too. I was like "**** where the **** am I losing air from!" And for some reason, the vacuuming is way more noticeable for me when I start up the cold engine... Weird.
