    Anyone ever cut off a parking boot?

    I have a "friend" (who will remain nameless, and no it's not me) and he has a work truck that he parked near a job site in the city of Chicago. There was a parking sign that said "No Parking between 6 pm and 6 am". He goes to his truck at 6:01 pm and it's already booted with a parking...

    Brembo caliper pad replacement - how?

    Just got my new 4-piston Brembo calipers but can't seem to figure out how to get the pads out. The calipers I have should be identical to the ones on the 00R. It looks like the pads "hang" from a set of pins at the top of the pad and there is a flat "spring" that pushes down on them. I...

    98 Cobra wheel spare?

    I need a favor from the 2000 Cobra R owners. I need to verify that a 17x8 1998 Cobra wheel will clear the 4-piston Brembo calipers. I have an 03 Cobra and my front calipers are pretty much toast from one too many open-track sessions. I want to replace them with the Brembo 00R kit, but in...

    Credit experts - credit rating question

    Here is a theoretical question: What would happen to your overall credit rating if you went from having a normal amount of debt (car payment, mortgage, etc) to no debt whatsoever? Would having absolutely zero debt adversely affect your credit rating or would there be no change?

    Cops and the "Donut" stereotype

    I always thought the whole cops and donuts thing was just an old stereotype and didn't really give it much thought. However, I noticed that every morning when I pass a particular Krispy Kreme here in Chicago, the parking lot has anywhere between four and six cop cars in it. Also, this forum is...

    New Chinese made cars. Coming to a Walmart near you.

    They're going to be sold in Europe first. I feel sorry for anyone who actually buys one. Assuming it doesn't fall apart in the first 1000 miles, the first accident will kill you for sure. In German, but you can still get the idea:

    Drugs in America. How bad is it really? (LEOs Only)

    It seems to me that there are more and more posts on various forums about getting caught smoking pot. It seems that pot use has been on the rise for years. Also, when watching the COPS show, it seems that 99% of perps on that show get caught with some kind of illegal drugs. My question...

    Immigration by the numbers

    I thought this was a very interesting video. It's pretty neutral and is about examining the numbers of legal immigration. However, it does NOT address the issue of illegal immigrants. It basically says what I've been saying for years about immigration. Don't think it's a repost. I did...

    Driving gloves for track use

    I've been looking at a bunch of driving gloves, but haven't liked any of them so far. True racing gloves seem too bulky and regular leather driving gloves are too numb. I'm trying to find something that not too expensive and provides a good feel. What do you guys use?

    Difference in suspension between a 99 and 02 GT?

    I used to own a 99 GT and from what I remember, it handled pretty well. The suspension was fairly tight and it never felt sloppy. My girlfriend has an 02 GT and it seems to feel completely different. The suspension feels softer and the car doesn't seem to track as well as my 99 did. It...

    Front end alignment and cooling ducts

    Should I bother to remove my brake ducts before I get a front end alignment. I would imagine it wouldn't be that hard to work around them, but I want to be sure. I don't want to end up with damaged ducts.

    Brembo 4-piston calipers and '98 Cobra wheels

    I wanted to get some Brembo 4-piston calipers, but I also wanted to use my 98 17x8 Cobra wheels if possible. I thought I read somewhere in these forums that there were a few people running this configuration. Apparently the 98 wheels are the only 17x8 wheels that would clear the calipers...

    Worthwhile gains from a mid-pipe?

    I have a friend who has a 99 Cobra with the "HP Fix". He wants to do some mods to get some extra power and I was wondering if it would be worth it for him to change the stock mid-pipe to something else. He already wants to do a catback at least, just for sound purposes. I did a search...
