    Continuing my Spring cleaning initiative...

    Does your GT have trouble getting or keeping it up? Maybe you haven't noticed. Like so many things, this degradation occurs over time. Remember the times the damn thing used to spring up with little provocation? Hey, the bright side of this awkward conversation is that at least it's not your...

    Axle Bolts Done Bad

    So we had another GT in for some normal maintenance and were trying to follow our own advice to see if the Alxe Bolt Upgrade had been performed. OEM (Allen) bolts securing the halfshaft to the flange and only one torque paint mark on each. So, we decided to take it apart to peer inside and...
