Reseat the connector. You can't clean the wheelspeed sensor, it is sealed in the hub, so if reseating the connector does not work,you are buying a new hub. I'd be examining the wire carefully too. ...

This is a very different story than when my ex-wife totaled my 1994 hardtop TT Supra. Glad she's OK.

No car is worth more than the check someone will write for it. Tax? Not at all, it's just the market at work, and the usual sources aren't reliable for low volume cars. Ever try to figure out what...

I doubt you'd be able to route the belt to bypass the A/C compressor. It's not a simple configuration at all.

I completely agree the F needs additional oil cooling, and there is no doubt your kit has all the things I would purchase if I were building it myself. You can't beat Setrab and Mocal for race...

It's a CCS-R, not one of ours. There's no way in the world an F without aero will pass a GT3 and stay ahead, and he was putting a good push on the Ferrari which also sported aero.

The driver is...

It doesn't need it. When mine was brand new in 2008 the trunk lifted effortlessly. Now I have to pull it up, and it just barely holds itself unless I lift it fully. This has been on my "list" of...

I bet when they replaced the compressor they replace the serpentine belt too. When I changed mine, it went away for a while, but came back in a couple of months. Report back in a few months and let...

I've run with BMW CCA. Lots and lots of bimmers old and new.

Yes, they all have their issues, no doubt. If my first purpose were track, I would just buy a Radical SR3 and have fun.

I don't understand why they went to all the work of developing a system that returns the oil to the sump by design, but left it vulnerable to pooling. It makes no sense.
