      • Some maintenance

        Broken adjuster on a front koni swaped with a spare and changed spring rates in the frontski

        Emptied front oil catch can (non pcv side)

        and replaced a blown caliper, which looks to been blown for awhile... and rebled my brakes.

        • For the handful of people still reading this thread;

          Ran full A6 Hoosiers with the new spring rate, maxed out the front dampers. Car is very wild in the rear, in combination with the lack of traction in the front makes it a handful.... Throttle in 2nd gear is almost impossible to modulate slowly. you just touch the gas and the car is at roasting tires... It is just too short gearing and makes too much power.

          Photos of the destroyed axle in the last run. Passenger side went.

          Sounded like someone threw change in my wheel. It showered the course in pieces, i found some of the ball bearings later on.

          • ..... I guess you have a 65mm Mustang TB.

            You could try using a progressive TB,. that is one with 2 springs on the side.

            This should slow the throttle plate opening rate and make it easier to gently feed the power in

            Considering the Vortech.... you could probably go down a size to an optimized 60mm and still have more than enough power.....G.

            • Im on a stock 60mm throttle. But maybe playing with the spring is a good idea

                • Another wind on the TB spring could help, or a secondary spring. Have you considered installing rigid heel rest to simply better control the movements of your foot?

                  • I'm not sure how or if that would help, i like the ideas though, the engineer friends all told me to weld a larger cam on the throttle it self



                    I'll play with the spring this weekend

                    • ..... you could try going down to an SE's 57mm T.B. ...... there must be a million of them knocking about

                      Putting a bigger cam on the TB might run into lack of pedal travel/ throttle opening issues

                      Don't understand the spring idea ... tighter will probably make the throttle jerky and induce R.S.I. in yer shin ....G.

                      • Changing the tb will effect tune. Nope.

                        • ....yeah, any alteration to the throttle / air will affect the tune ....... the PCM may handle some alterations better than others .... suck it and see situation

                          Can only think of some kind of mappable air bleed valve or 3.33pulley ... you have a 2.87 don't you ? ... G.

                              From what I recall of my track time in my car, keeping planted helped a ton with staying in control in all aspects of driving. My throttle finesse would get out of control on bumpy roads when I was street driving. Being able to plant my heel on something would have helped a ton.

                              Be careful once you start playing with the cam on the TB, you've only got so much throttle cable and the pedal has limited travel as well (hard stops in both directions). At least that's what this engineer friend has to say about it....

                              That graph makes me really regret selling my SC kit. Ugh.

                              • I ended up doing another rotation on the stock spring. - It's tight now pedal is very firm, my only worry now is it will snap the cable.

                                The graph now with the retune is even better, i probably wont ever go back to a dyno anytime soon. but i bet a legit 30-40 whp over that tune, plus being able to rev over 5k



                                ...Also doing another oil change 5w30 aint cutting it for these track days even with the big oil cooler up front, 10w40 is going in.
