How are those (suspension components that shall remain nameless to create suspense in the forums)? My dad put some (above suspension components, from another brand) on his GTI, and it does (applicable things) beautifully. I'm jelly, so I've been lightly shopping...

I'm not, however, jelly that he has a slipping clutch at 24k miles (Mk7's have WEAK clutches) with stock power. Why, maybe a little (he's getting a Stage 2 with a lightened flywheel)...

Edit: Ninja edit to preserve secrecy...
Lol! I'll post up soon enough about the aforementioned suspension bits. They are doing their thing wonderfully, I just have to do a think and they'll be at 100% optimal-ness.

I'm fearing I may need a clutch soonish as well, though it's hard to tell with these self-adjusting units.

We aren't completely sure why they are coming loose, time will lead to an answer.
But I know that I'm one of the few on snow tires with bolts. Softer tire/tread block may play a factor.
I didn't tighten them too much. Enough to deform tread. How do you apply a TQ value, exposed length, tread deformation value to something that squishes unevenly.
I have absolutely beat the shit out of them. This last event was out 4th. Each is about 5 hours with me doing about 2+ hours of lapping, each lap being around a minute. So that maths to about 480 laps, but I'd say I've done close to 400? Working out the numbers isn't something I think about, but now that I do; damn I like to have too much fun.
Did you use threadlock? Because I'd probably use threadlock. Tightening those bastards looks like a nightmare.

Nope. Nyloc nuts. No one else has had too much trouble I know of, but all are on junk summer tires, old race tires, etc. I'm the odd man out with my soft winter tires with good tread still (things have like 8/32nds left).


Really not too bad to tighten. Once a guy gets in a rhythm it's about an hours time.

Think I'd get a cordless driver, and extended socket. Tighten a couple by hand, test corresponding clutch setting on driver, firm it up one or two clicks, then go to town.
Also, threadlocker.

I have a couple impacts. But it only works if the bolts doesn't spin ... they spin. I think I neglected them for too long and this is my punishment.

You need a ratcheting wrench
