    Help! Help! Excellent Body Shop in San Diego?

    A guy backed into me at a stop sign, so I am in need of a nose, hood, paint, and who knows what else. Anyone have a recommendation for a shop that does great work? (hopefully some C4 experience since my hood is now jammed shut! :duh ) Thanks, Mike

    Auto X/Track brake pads

    Suggestions? I have been running Hawk HP Plus, but had to throw back on a back up set of SBS blue (pro touring) in a pinch. That was an eye opener. the Hawks worked a lot better for competition. Now, the question is there a better pad than the HP+? I autocross regularly and track on...

    clutch life?

    Ok, just curious... Anyone else have more than 130K on the original clutch? I autocross, and have even been to the drag strip on occasion. For the life of me, I just don't know how the clutch is still with me. So, how many miles on yours?

    Brake noise

    I just switched to Hawk HP+ pads on the front, and I am going nutz!!! They sound like I am running metal to metal. (its embarrasing) I have pulled the pads off, cleaned everything, used hi-temp anti-skweel juice on the backs of the pads, and after two stops, they screem. Is this normal...

    electrical issues...still/new

    Ok,turns out that it was a fried computer. I got another one from the dealer today. Good news...when I tap the ECM, the car does not die. BAD NEWS...The fans are on at all times. Granted I just let it idle for 5 minutes, but the temp was only 170*, and the AC was off. As far as I know...

    F-45 vs. Z51

    Ok, I am thinking of selling my '92 and getting an LT4. I was looking at the options (since part of this is motivated by the fact I want a stiffer suspension. My '92 has FE1) and it got me thinking, which set up would be better. It will be driven daily, and will see auto-x. I drive into the...
