    Conti used race tires

    Hey all, I know many like Direzza's, RS3's, but if you want a real thrill try the Conti race tires, there are folks selling slightly used race tires from Grand AM ST series on various boards, and the spec size is perfect for VW MK5 - 225-45-17. Before you scoff at a 225, these are easily as wide...

    Mk7 is out!

    Our local dealer has a white 6 sp, car looks good. It doesn't have the power pack, but has some nice stuff like rear view camera, Fender stereo etc. going to test drive it soon. The car seems bigger, just felt bigger standing next to it. To me it's not well differentiated from the Mk6 though...

    Dunlop Direzza Z2 on close out

    The Z2 didn't last long, already on close out at the Tirerack. Apparently they already have an improved Star Spec version coming out this fall. Looking around other boards seems many still liked the Z1 Star Specs better than the Z2's.

    Automatic Car and smartphone app

    A little off topic, but this is a why didn't I think of that? Rather than the usual gear head apps, this one is for the typical driver, seems to tie it all together:

    Race mode indeed

    I was thinking mk7 GTI would be my next car, but might have to go all in with a MK7 Golf R. 290 hp? No need for chips. I think this car will do just fine as delivered...

    New (old) E36 M3

    Got the car together again, out on a drive with it today. Engine running a bit rough when cold, and I think a coil pack is acting up, but it's running. Sits a lot lower than my Mk5! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free

    Mk7 GTI vs Focus ST

    This months Car and Driver pits the new MK7 GTI vs the Focus ST. The Mk6 lost this comparo by a single point, but they put the MK7 ahead by quite a margin, essentially winning every category. The GTI used in the article didn't have the torque vectoring front differential, they claim another GTI...

    M3 track car alive

    The beast is alive. Drove it to work today for first time. Had some challenges to get it running well enough to drive again, but its together again, no leaks, coolant temp holding rock steady. Rough idle when cold, and it occasionally misfires, so likely needs a plug/coil pack refresh. Any M3...

    Driving Mk4 R32 at the track

    Got to drive a factory stock Mk4 R32 at Roebling last weekend, this car is fun. I've driven em before, but never at a high speed event. Its a little heavy, but handles remarkably well, even stock. Stock 240 hp gets the car moving reasonably well, and the cars ability to rotate is pretty good. On...

    Koni Sport with DG review

    Thought I'd offer up some Koni love, as an alternative to the Bilstein shock thread. Another equally excellent setup for street/track is simple good old Koni Sport shocks with DG springs. For reference, I have used Koni's, Bilsteins, and other gas monotube setups (Eibach) on more than one...

    A real good brake setup

    So usually at beginning of year I make a few tweaks to the car to try something new, and it was time do something about the brakes. After running front R32 brakes for a while with RB rotors and having the rotors fail early, I sold the brakes. The big R brakes aren't bad and can generate good...
