    Horrible Drivetrain Noise! Scraping! Grinding!

    I have nearly 30,000 miles on my car, occasionally experience the disc pad caused brake vibration issue. Never had any loud noises associated with it though. Good call though on your being ready ahead of time. When my brakes need replacing, definitely going aftermarket unless KIA has a fix for...

    Horrible Drivetrain Noise! Scraping! Grinding!

    Backed out of the driveway, heard a sound coming from the chassis. Drove further and the problem intensified. Only occurred when moving. Called a dealer. They were backed up and couldn't look at my car for over a week. They suggested I have it towed in as a precaution. YIKES! Remembered I knew a...

    I Just bought a KIA... WTH???

    Great story! For me, I've owned new Mustang GT's for decades. Recently was trading them in for new one's almost every year. But only ever wanting to own one car, driving in snow with them was a white knuckled experience at best (no matter what tire you used). Enter the Stinger GT AWD. It fit my...

    Acura TLX Type S Instrumented Test Numbers Are In ...

    Ouch! I'm not against the Type S (competition benefits everyone). But across the net most people are asking why Acura didn't put a little more "oomph" in the Type S.

    Kia Stinger Aftermarket Wheel Options

    A lot of nice wheels here, but for me, my car stays 100% bumper-to-bumper bone stock!

    Don't worry, you're not being combative. Just that some people don't like hearing the truth. Oh well ...

    Ran my 100% Bone Stock Stinger GT AWD ...

    I noticed that in tests for the Stinger GT AWD, I matched MotorWeek's 13.1 sec quarter, beat C&D's 13.2 sec time, and walloped MT's abysmal 13.6 sec time. I'm game if the last two are in need of a driver. :cool:

    My Stinger at the Dyno

    Seriously, only a 3.6% loss to the wheels should raise some eyebrows. Should be more like 310-315 whp for a RWD, not 352 hp.

    Ran my 100% Bone Stock Stinger GT AWD ...

    This was Test & Tune, I was literally surrounded by radically modified race cars including an 850 hp 1970 Chevy Nova. As for me, I spent decades at Test & Tunes running mildly modded Fox body 5.0's. I bracket raced a few times (boring), and won my class once (pic below).
