    Passenger Footbox Question

    Wilwood brake fluid leak...this can't be normal.

    I've avoided tape based on many comments on this and the other forum about not using Teflon tape for brakes. On my builds, I've always used Permatex sealant.

    The only difficulty I had was hooking up the cable and changing the settings. I brought on both myself. The cable needs to be attached in line to the

    So, I'm reading this with interest because I am planning on installing one in my car. In fact, I have already ordered it. I have not even seen the kit

    Trackable "Requirements"

    I raced my FFR in TTU for nearly a decade. It started out as a fun street car, and gradually morphed into a bit more. I won 6 regional championships

    Spec Racer / Challenge Car what ever you wish to call it. More crash protection and stiffer. This is what I'm building so I'm a bit partial. Basic

    Wilwood brake fluid leak...this can't be normal.

    I had the same problem. Mine was leaking from the fitting that screws into the caliper. I called Wilwood and they told me to put regular white teflon

    I autocross, so here is my advice on that.

    I would do the Wilwood brakes NOW. Cars can go too fast. They can't stop too fast. Even more important

    First let me note that all rulebooks are fluid (some less than others).

    GoPro recommendations and mounting

    Here is my advice.

    I have a GoPro that I regularly use for autocross. I have a RAM suction cup mount. Awesome mount. I also have an Eye-of-Mine

    The goal is to have the car be used primarily on the street but that would be expected to put on a good show a few times during open track / autocross

    George, that’s exactly what I’m using for my system. Set at 8000 and the configuration that Rostra recommends. Surges big time. I guess I’ll

    Passenger Footbox Question

    Should the bottom edge of the passenger's footbox outside wall (#35, shown in the pic) be riveted into the 1.5" round tube or should it just be riveted

    Wilwood brake fluid leak...this can't be normal.

    Mike, I used tape. Should I have used something else, or nothing at all? I should also note that the front calipers have banjo bolts, the rear ones do

    This is what I'm using, for cruise and mechanical speedometer gauge. I know they make them with only the sensor, which you may already have for your speedometer
