We just got a 99 FRC. The brakes were really bad (shuddering and vibrating when braking at just about any speed), so "we" (I use the term usely, since Phil did it and I watched ;)) pulled the rotors off and replaced them with some Baer drilled/slotted ones.
Here's the weird thing.
Hey all! I'm back in the C5 fold again with my new-to-me 99 Pewter FRC.
The question is: should I keep the wheels or update them? Mr. S and I are both leaning toward new ones. I'm curious what you guys think.

These things look good, but I'm not sure if I want to spend $300 on something...
I seem to recall a post you made a while back that mentioned changing the rear differential fluid at the first 7K miles. I don't know if I was dreaming or mistaken, I can't seem to find that thread anywhere now, and my owners manual doesn't list it anywhere in the "scheduled...
If you are tired of having your C5 decide that you really didn't want to shift to 2nd, but instead 4th would be much better, this little inexpensive device will solve your problem.
If I can do this by myself, anybody can. :)

I got a letter in the mail the other day from MORPACE international. It wanted me to participate in an online survey about a future high powered sports car (I guess because I bought my z06 this year?).
