    Goodyear! WTH!!

    I have a set of GS-D3's on my C5 and I've had them ~8 months. I picked up a screw in my left rear which is, of course, in the sidewall and can't be repaired. So I'm off to order a new tire... Here's the problem, there's no stock anywhere. Tirerack and local Goodyear dealers our out as are...

    Alternative to Tirerack?

    I picked up a screw in my left rear tire and of course it's in the side wall. :mad The Eagle GS-D3 that's on there are only 9 months old and have plenty of tread. Anyway, I need to order a tire and Tirerack is out of stock. Anyone have another tire site that I may be able to find tires at? Leon

    Play in Drivetrain

    When applying and lifting the gas I get what appears to be excessive play in the drive train. Normal? Or am I looking at major/minor problems? My first thought is u-joints but I just want to make sure that there isn't something bigger here. When I lift off the gas and let the engine slow the...

    HVAC Switch Part Number

    Two of the three HVAC switches on my 99 FRC have broken at the same time and I need to order some replacements. Anyone have a part number? I do not have auto temp control, just the basic HVAC controller. The part number that I've found that looks like it could be a match is 16203804 but I...

    HVAC Controller

    Can an auto climate control controller be added to a car that doesn't have automatic control? http://www.ecklers.com/product.asp?pf_id=49932&dept_id=1186 Two of the three control knobs have broken on my controller and I was thinking that it might be nicer just to drop the above unit into the...

    I've Found My New Addiction...

    And it's High Performance Driver Education. I went to my first event with the local Porsche club this past weekend at Summit Point, and OMG! what a great time! It was so much fun really putting the car through its paces on a race track and taking the car to the limit. What I found was that...

    Z06 Sway Bars?

    Would the Z06 sway bars be much of an upgrade from the stock Z51 sway bars on my FRC? I'm also looking at some Bilstein sport shocks on the car as well to improve handling. Any suggestions?

    Retrofit Traction Control with Active Handling?

    I'm preparing for my first track event and there are a couple options that I wish my FRC had to help with this, Active Handling and the HUD. I know the HUD can be fitted into the FRC. Even though I have an early model 99 car and it will be a little more involved due to the changing of the...

    Helmet for track event

    I'm looking at doing a track event with the local Porsche club at Summit Point race track in a few weeks and need to get a helmet. Can someone point me to a site that has decent pricing on helmets and any recommendations on helmet type? The helmet needs to be Snell 2000 or better. Thanks.

    Adding HUD to C6

    This is a popular mod on the C5 for the early cars that didn't have HUDs and were HUD enabled. But my questions is, how many would add a HUD to their C6 and has it been done? I don't recall seeing any threads on it but if I ordered a new C6 and wanted to add the HUD later and save ~$5000 by...

    Odometer Shot

    Drove to CT for the July 4th holiday and usually keep the DIC on average mileage. For whatever reason I switched over to the odometer during the drive and saw my that I was sitting at 123,456 miles. Thought I'd take a quick shot with the phone camera and I know it's not real steady, but I was...

    Low RPM Miss

    My engine has developed an odd miss at idle. This has been going on for some time and I thought an application of Sea Foam had help out but it's not totally gone. At idle the car has a random miss. When launching the car the engine stumbles when the RPM drops under 1000RPM. It almost seems...

    Chevy Dealer Philadelphia

    Any owners in the Philadelphia area that have a preferred Chevy dealer for service? I spent a lot of money on my car before the move so I shouldn't need to do too much for a while. But I want to check this out sooner rather than later. I was fortunate to have a great Corvette tech in Florida...
