Mind you, all they're doing is tweaking some toe specs on these cars. Whether it is RT or SRT calibration, it's really not all that earth shattering where you can go with toe specs. All it is, is...

I'm absolutely on-board with 19johned53's advice.

So was the dealer ever able to tell you if the TC recall service was done on the car already or not? It's mostly immaterial, if the TC service...

I think that was known in a, "goes w/o saying" manner, altogether. ;)

It is good that you mention it, just the same. Ambient pressure decreases as you go to higher altitude. Lower pressure...

I know others are in disagreement on this matter, but the "issue" I have observed on my car is static camber in the rear. That's not to say it is a "dogleg", though. Some believe the camber should...

That's my impression, too, on the effect of humidity...it can have a beneficial effect on detonation (sort of like increasing effective octane), but in most cases, it just robs a bit of power.

It's probably too late for the wear to entirely equalize itself on those tires, even if you had perfect alignment (as far as stock adjustments). It will wear how its going to wear. All you got to do...

That's an excellent explanation! I knew about partial pressures, but I had never put that together in my head, with water vapor and O2 displacement effects.

My experiences have been that humidity seems to kill power output. Seems like it shouldn't have as heavy an effect as air temp, but it definitely seems up there to me. My personal theory is that...

If they do the TC recall service, see if you can keep the parts. Then you can take a hi-rez picture of it and post it, here. We need it for "study". ;)

I'm talking about metal vs sidewall being 1" on each side of a circle...18" vs 20". 1 + 18 + 1 = 20

The tire OD is like a tick larger on the 20" combo...probably pretty difficult to discern the OD just by vision. Cosmetically, it's mostly the 1" more of metal in the wheel (1" less sidewall) on...

8000 rpm in a v8, is definitely an attraction. When applied through short gearing, the result ought to be quite impressive. ;)

Could be the lock-up clutch operation sneaking in there, too. Sometimes it can appear almost like a gearshift, when it is actually the torque convertor clutch engaging.
