  • I received my Aim Solo 2 and Schroth quick fit pros. Iíll be ordering a fresh Bell helmet and am looking forward to the 2019 track season.

    • There is a thread over on 6G about a member who has cracked open his voodoo to find that his valve spring chipped off and made its way through the OPG settling down in the oil pan. I found this UPR plug that may/may not hang on to something like this ( http://www.uprproducts.com/billet-oi...lug-50-35.html ) plus my plug is seeping so I figured why not? Nonetheless it's a good read about the internals of the 5.2.

      • There's also a guy on FB doing a rebuild.

        Are you replacing your plug every oil change?

        • No. I have changed the oil 4 times now and just now noticing a little seepage. The UPR plug comes with additional rings/seals

          • Yeah, that's usually the reason for the seeping. I've changed it twice and put a new oem plug in the second change. Seems to be the way to go, and they're cheap.

            Ive ordered my Bell helmet and also got Ford Performance lug nuts so I don't have to deal with the oem onea and their damn shiny cover that deforms and sticks in the socket driving me insane. Grabbed an oemtools funnel that locks into the filler cap area just like the cap for no spill and easy 1 person filling.

                    We settled on a suction cup mount on the rear window for ours.

                    First time tacking it on track or just new upgrades?

                    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

                      • that's a great lap time for a bone stone GT350. I don't have a video of my GT350R at ACS. but here is my data plot (1:48.18).
                        car is stock, except for front camber. I was also on stock GT350 wheels (no CF) and 3R tires (it corded in this data plot, but still sticky, much better than PSS).


                        your T5/T6 speed is great......I need to copy your line there.
