Heliocoils are no match for a timesert. Heliocoils amount to jamming stripped threads with wire till it binds together and holds. A timesert actually places a new threaded receiver into the repair....

It's way cheaper to wear out rotors and brake pads than to put excessive strain on any of the synchros. Frankly, IMO, the shifting mechanism, especially the hydraulics needs a rethink. Porsche is far...

To add on to Lil B's rant, Ferrari as most of you know just made a new 4 door. The realities of car making dictate a certain volume of production. Even if Porsche owned the sports car niche, it's...

And there is my quandary, the only time the car slips is when it's cold and first taking off, as soon as it warms a bit it's over. IMO, it grabs too high but I'm starting to think about leaving it...
