Like Destructo said. I had 150K on my front rotors on my Silverado. I never towed anything until I got the Camaro. At that point they were still good but I changed them just in case. The thickness is...

No, the Hawks street pads would work fine. Look at the ones below the HP+. There's nothing special about our Brembos that makes then worth the extra $. The plus pads are for moderate tracking and...

Hawks for the street are just as good as Brembos. Just make sure you pick the right pads for your type of driving. I ran HP+ for track days and they worked well on short tracks and autocross. I kept...

What's stupid is an operator telling me to push a button inside my car when I just told her I locked myself out. It's just funny, get over yourself.

Go with the OEM cap. Most aftermarket caps don't have the tether to keep the cap attached to the car. Just keeps you from losing your cap when filling up.

Well you have me confused. 2012 and up SS models came with the FE4 suspension. How is it you think you have any FE3 components on a 2014? Did you replace your stock sway with an aftermarket FE3 type?

the ZL1 unlinks are 12mm on both sides. I know 2011 and earlier used 10mm.

The XAs used a 10mm hole. I'm going to guess the Pedder's ZL bar has 12mm holes. I had XAs and then went to Pfadt...

Even the ZL1 style RPI splitter I had was finished the same way. Pretty ugly to look at but unless you crawl under the car you don't see it. It did fit quite well though and was strong.

My experience in a 2013 Ford Focus is E85 gives me about 25% less MPG. You don't run E85 because it saves you money, it's for tree huggers.

E85 is between 94-96 octane as confirmed by an actual-octane engine. Some claim it's over a 100 but apparently that's an improper calculation. Regardless it's higher than premium pump gas.

According to GM's website, the height of the Z/28 is 52.40". The SS is 54.20". Pretty significant drop just for tires. Difference of 1.8", .8" for tires and 1" for suspension makes sense.

The difference is really around 2.5%. 1.00-(27.9" / 28.6") = .024475. Diameter of 285 divided by diameter of 275. The 285's make the speedo think you are going faster.
