Last call on the 500f/700r springs for Penske shocks, if no-one wants them they're going to metal recycling which seems a shame!

I don't know offhand, but you should be able to figure it out yourself by checking an online parts catalog (i.e. deroure.com), find the parts in question, and see if the same parts are common to both...

No interest in the exhaust manifold heat shields? I'm a bit surprised considering how many reports there are of one or more of these cracking around the upper bolt locations and causing a rattle. In...

You make a good point, but often times PM’s are needed for negotiations (though not in this case due to the rock bottom prices). I did try to keep this thread up to date when items were spoken for...

FS: Elise/Exige parts $20 each all must go!

No one wants a spare lugbolt tool? The bolts will go to metal recycling if someone just wants the tool (honestly, I probably wouldn’t trust someone else’s used lug bolts either).

FS: Elise/Exige parts $20 each all must go!

Moving soon, need to unload these parts. The stock parts are all from my 2008 Exige S240. Each item is $20 plus postage (USPS, Fedex, or UPS). Each photo represents one "item"; what you see is what...

Yes, but overkill for most applications, and more costly. Having said that, I use Class 12.9 for the front and rear upper plinths (the "camber bolts"), but even 10.9 are an upgrade over the bolts...

Not Jetblast, but...

Neither one, both are too weak. In general for suspension components you want Class 10.9 bolts from a reputable supplier. I use McMaster-Carr.

Also, use loctite (usually...

50 cars divided between 3 groups (or 4, assuming there was an instructor group) is a low number given the size (length) of the Glen. It can easily take 25 cars at a time. You must have had plenty of...

I should qualify my "end result was excellent" comment, because the shift quality is still highly dependent on the transmission itself (the one component I didn't change). By watching the motion at...

I wouldn’t recommend it. Those were stock on my Exige S240, and I would not characterize them as “race”, more like streetable HPDE pads. It doesn’t take a whole lot to warm them up, and once wam they...

I also like how they look, esp the right side with more holes; and more holes == added lightness.

I worry a little that they may be too slippery, though the holes should help in that regard. Have...

TC intervention? What setting do you use? I kept turning mine up (higher slip %) until it no longer kicked in when it shouldn’t (on the track).

It doesn't say how large the rivets are, but they look good sized; four per bolt should be fine as long as the rivets are installed properly.

The repair can also be done by just replacing the...
