  1. Stock 2020 GT500 Dyno

    Hes obnoxious thats for sure. He has a Super Snake as well and apparently has another new GT500 Carbon Package or whatever on order. Crazy. Matt

    (Mental note: When asked what kind of car I own....tell them. And watch them roll eyes and find another victim with a better car)
  4. Thinking About Getting A New Car

    Heck yeah. Ive always loved the Challengers and with the right muffler setup they can sound better than any of the other offerings out there hands down. This is thanks to still being able to mount the mufflers old school in the middle of the car and have over the rear tail pipes unlike the rest. Whenever I hear a Challenger that sounds like crap it makes me shake my head. Nice exhaust note + manual trans always = good times! Matt

    If by light switch you mean the STUPID dimmer style switch found throughout our house...then yes. Hate those things but have been too lazy/busy/mostlylazy to swap them out. Matt

    Well...I couldnt wait any longer. Plan was to buy this sucker on my Bday (Oct 25) then hit the Blue Ridge Pkwy that weekend for a fun weekend trip. There was literally 1 optioned out perfectly the way I woulda ordered it from Ford and they were in a hurry to get rid of it meaning I got a half decent deal out of the mix. Friend of mine had it transfered to her dealership and the rest is history!!! Specs: 2013 Focus ST with ST2 package 2.0T (TINY K03 turbo) 6speed manual Tangerine Scream Charcoal/Smoke Partial leather Recaro seats Sunroof, MyFordTouch w/ Nav and Dualzone are added options Love this car to DEATH already. Managed to clock 33mpg on the way home taking it easy on her so she wont hurt the wallet too bad when in Eco-mode and when you smack the throttle this little suckers got some balls! Not entirely up to date on torquesteer and how to drive around it so Ill need to learn but otherwise Im diggin it. Smooth, rides nice, handles better than most cars on the road and is super economical when you want it to be. I like how you can drive around town and NEVER see and single psi of boost thanks to the torque and you never have to shift out of 6th when cruising to pass or get back to speed, just give it some throttle and the little turbo comes to life getting you where you need to be! Perfect blend of reliable/responsible/economical and FUN. Never in a million years would I ever imagine owning a yellow car but this color really stood out to me in person so no regrets there either! Look forward to seein how she does down the road! Matt

    If I get it in the car in time I will be doing alot of driving over a short period of time to break it in (properly, no shortcuts) and then Ill see if I can make it out for sure! If not...oh well, at least its back up and going again! Matt

    Spent a couple hours Sat getting the garage cleared out enough to get the Shelby in and ready to make a huge mess. Thanks to our recent refinance deal on the house, a nice escrow check showed up and wouldnt you know it...it was roughly what I needed to pick up a new clutch and oem slave. Happy Birthday indeed! Parts will be ordered up today and Im going to tackle the job slowly as I get free moments here and there. Hope I have it high enough to get the giant bastard of a trans out from under it! Matt

  15. Thinking About Getting A New Car

    Nothing wrong with waiting for something perfect and doing it the way you want to do it. There is also nothing wrong with jumping on something that gives your the fizz and making a couple payments along the way. Either way just make sure its the right car and have fun! Congrats either way you go about doin it, will be a fun hotrod with modern comfort/safety and classic styling and sound! Matt

    Appreciate it! Wish I had gotten them on video, would love to see it rip. All I know is it FELT great! Alot of fun. Matt
  21. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    Ide snatch it up in a heartbeat but combined with the 13/14 clutch master (which makes the pedal heavier) I dont think it would be all that great for DD status. If I was just racing it/driving it on the weekends I would likely hit you up!!! Matt
  22. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    ^ 100% what I was thinking when I typed it. I even typed it in Homer's voice Matt

    mmmmm cake Matt
  24. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    Would love to see it! Unfortunately, the Shelby will likely not be doing so. Clutch started slipping last night trying to make a light and I believe it finally decided to leave the building Danged if it didnt hold JUST long enough to put together a couple awesome nights of racing tho! Ive known I was on borrowed time with it but when it continued to smell yesterday despite the long highway trip home from the track and multiple trips around town I knew it was coming. Sure enough, bout a mile from home it slipped. Slipped again when testing. Oh well. Ill start pinching pennies and eventually be able to make something happen. If I could sell the Wagon, Ide toss a clutch in the Shelby, replace the trans in the 66 and be able to do a little work on the Truck buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut...the Wagon is so good! Driving it again this morning was a treat. Grrrrrrrrrrr. Matt
