They are exposed so they can be removed.
I feel like panic over clutches is overblown. If someone knows how to drive manual, they aren’t going to hurt your car. The only real risk renting one is that the renter truly doesn’t know how to drive stick and rides the clutch the whole time.
I’ve known him for a while now, many mutual friends in the local car community. When he was filming his reality show I coordinated with him to film an autocross segment and did a little intro/outro as well.
He told me to
Very fast, surprisingly comfortable. Difficult to get out of.
Wow so edgy
One of the times I dropped off my Mustang for service at Ford (I don’t even remember what for now) they did the whole “I don’t have a Mustang but...” game for my loaner. They let me pick ANYTHING they had, but the options were just a Fiesta or an Excursion.
Not to mention the sheer square footage. This car is literally half the size.
Supra might fit the bill? It’s got a name, looks unique, but should be approachable in a way that an Elise or Evora might not
Honestly? Nah. I think some of that is because it's SO out of reach that it's purely a fantasy. Or I just like cars so much that I still enjoy slow ones: I also drove a Miata RF yesterday and had tons of fun.
It would be very difficult to not speed in this.
Yep. Overpriced as hell haha
It’s 89. Which is what I use. Doesn’t matter when the lug ends up on the wrong thread and jams.
Maybe it’s just because my last 3 years have been swapping wheels back and forth on Mustangs with 150 ft lb lugs that seem completely indestructible, but after going through this with the FRS and talking to others that have had similar issues, some of it can’t just be technique.
Idk. I’m using whatever was included with the wheels.
I mean, they aren’t great. I’ve found many threads pointing out the ease at which they get cross threaded and then have to be broken.
Yup. Somehow must have gotten a thread or two off while installing a nut and it got stuck. Only way to get it off was to snap it.
The Street class is killed by the shock rule. It’s really a stock class, but at some point in the SCCA’s history they realized that shocks wear out so they can be replaced, and now to be truly competitive you have to replace your shocks with high performance ones.
Currently only the fronts are Primacy, the rear are some cheap Nexens. So probably still accurate.
