Woofcast #178

A little talk about some issues we had during the week as Gabe drove back into Chicago. He wasn’t under attack, it was the air show in town.

If you are an ’02 to early ’03 and you have the drilled control arms, you might want to check those out for cracks or bends. You can pick them up at your dealer or any of the fine sponsors listed on the right for a great price and they take 10 minutes with a jack, an 18mm socket and a 18mm box wrench. Definitely worth it for the piece of mind. Oh yea, while you are inspecting them, Gabe thinks it would be a good idea to check for rodents.

Looking for Gabe’s Ortega Highway joke? Woof 66 is where you will find it.

Then our top 5 mods for the ’02 – ’06 R53. I think we picked the standard mods, but if we missed something, let us know in the comments!

And, back by popular demand is the zip file of the show. Those of you that might be having problems downloading the show for whatever reason, give that one a shot and see if it works.

  1. My last MINI went in this order.

    1)tires
    2)swaybar
    3)intake
    4)exhaust
    5)pulley 15 and 2.

    My current JCW in this order.

    1)tires
    2)swaybar
    3)visual stuff
    4)??? Something suspension related.

    I think the swaybar is a must if you’re hitting the curves. I consider it the 15% pulley for the suspension. Great bang for the buck.

  2. I should have put tires and wheels for the JCW. The S-heavies didn’t make it past the first day before they took up space in my attic. 😀

  3. hey guys nice show! I’m long time listener, and you *still* almost made me order an exhaust! (eventually). Was Gabe on the iPhone the whole time? Keep it up! 🙂

  4. you doing the base Cooper thing too much again 😉 remember that loads of from countries other than the USA listen and the Cooper is NOT the base model – the one is 😉
