Ideas For Heat Protecting Airbox?

02 April 2010 - 01:59 PM

Since ford decided to put the air box directly on top of the engine I find that it heats up very quickly, causing performance/mpg drops. Since insurance wont let me change to a cone air filter any ideas on ways O can stop the air box getting hot without invaliding insurance ? :)

Foc User Videos?

20 March 2010 - 11:15 PM

Do you think/ is there a way to put user videos on the FOC videos section. My friend is making a movie soon so would love to put it on the site for all to see. And im sure other users have videos they would like to share :P

Thoughts on this?

Handbrake Turn

02 March 2010 - 09:22 PM

I'm curious to know what kind of damage you can do to the car when trying to do a handbrake turn. I'll admit I've done it once before but afterwards my friend came up to me and told me it can brake off the rear brakes, needless to say I haven't done it again.
Although recently he did the same thing but a lot harder and sharper turn in his Saxo and he didn't seem to mind at all.

I've tried googling the question but apart from tyre damage nothing much seems to come up.

Note: When i did the handbrake turn it was in an empty car park with no one around so i wasn't being a risk to anyone, apart from myself.

New Tyres

23 February 2010 - 07:12 PM

My front left tyre seems to be off balance since its worn more on one side so ive decided to replace it and get the wheels sorted, since they start to wobble and feel unsafe when going about 65mph :huh:

I'm looking at kwik fit at the moment and I was wondering if any of you had any good or bad experiences with them? Or whether national tyres would be a better option.

And whether or not paying the extra 4 to have the tyres filled with nitrogen would do any good or just make my pocket 4 lighter?
