Ask to run in the novice version of the class (NSTU). I did that at my first event. I think you can do it for your first year. Since it's your first event, don't worry too much about what class...

I've gone back to my parent's several times and that's a 500 mile round trip. The 1LE's ride isn't that harsh since most highways are pretty smooth. Since you don't have many miles on it, you want to...

I do 2-3 coats once or twice a year with Zaino. I get in all the nooks and crannies like the painted area when you open up the trunk. Does anybody wax under the car? I want to, but I live in an...

I only added the clutch reservoir. I did bleed the brakes (have to if you are upgrading to DOT 4). Also, only use DOT 4 in the clutch (no DOT 3). I would recommend replacing the clutch fluid at least...

I didn't. I just put new fluid in the reservoir and pumped the clutch pedal a bunch of times (check it after one or two slow pumps because you will need to add more fluid). Then just empty the...

Got this from Hankook:


The RS-3 should be stored in a cool dry space. Meaning extremes would harm the tire. Freezing temperatures could crack the tire and it should never be driven in freezing...

I think the right will spin/slip a little more due to the crown on most roads. Even though it is limited slip I think it allows some difference between the two before it will lock up (think of the...

It would take 4 quarts in the trans.

Mine made a little noise when new. Seemed like the more I drove it, the quieter and smoother it got. It was never very loud to begin with. I changed the diff and trans fluids around 3500 miles. I...

I used Mobil 1 but I will be switching to Red Line. Just check the bottle, it will say if it has the friction modifier in it.
