  1. Kamala is el Presidente!

    aaaaaand she will campaign on the fact that the current mess "wasnt her fault" and that she "inherited it" and people will be dumb enough to say to themselves "you know, she's right" and we will go down this road again with similar results me thinks. 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

    Bronco Sports are great and most buyers are loving them from what I'm seeing! I was very underwhelmed by the few Broncos I've seen in person and sat in and enjoyed the one I drove but not enough to cause me to get the itch for one. I still maintain that ide prefer a 2 door and after FINALLY seeing a Cyber Orange 2 door Sadquatch (100% what ide love to have) I really just can't talk myself into a 4 door. Now...if Kathleen wanted one then 4 door it is but at the moment I'm drooling over the F150 Tremor more than the Bronco. Matt
  6. Blast from the Past

    Wooooow. Can't remember if that's the one I trailered the 66 to but it was a fun time for sure. I have some videos somewhere of my car making a pass I believe tho I could be mistaking that for Union Hill...ill fo some digging Matt

    Clearance/remove offending parts if not already done and then carry in. If it were a carbon fiber driveshaft ide be concerned alot more than I would aluminum. IF it breaks, grab another at that point. Matt

    Woah that was German in the Turbo SN? Dang I saw it make a pass but had no clue it was him. Matt

    Not sure lately as I don't get to watch much. My stick cars used to hook hard until the last couple times I ran the Shelby and it was a bitch getting it to hook. Before that tho I could pretty much count on it hooking most nights out. Ask Mike, he would be your man for that info for sure! Matt
  15. EVENnewestER DD 2018 F150

    They prep pretty ok especially right before the bracket program. It's hit or miss for me but I was happy to be consistently in the lower 1.7 60s where other nights I'm in the 1.8s. The night I went 7.59 it dead hooked to a 1.69 60ft and didn't spin even in the slightest. You can hear it spinning in last night's videos but not as bad as it can! No more tnt nights Tues or Fri but I'm not sure if they do open passes on Sats which is all they have left. Matt
  16. EVENnewestER DD 2018 F150

    YES! I love that truck so much and I said the same thing. I would go through the trouble of having some of the same factory wagon wheels I had on my 88 put together for it just to complete the look. Super cool truck, didnt see it go 6.87 tho thats amazing! Matt
  17. EVENnewestER DD 2018 F150

    WOAH thanks for those Mike, super cool! Speaking of super cool, it was super cool last night at the track. I got there RIGHT as they were starting TNT due to a couple wrecks on the way so I went straight into the lanes and into my first pass with no cool down which ticked me off as thats usually my quickest pass of the night but still started the night off with a solid pass. Temps were low low low and the DA started around 1200 and dropped as the night went on. 35psi front tires 30psi rear E35 in the tank Run 1) 7.70 at 90.93 with a 1.74 60. Noticed after this pass that the new air filter pipe had popped out of the filter. Doubt it made any difference but I sorted it after this Run 2) 7.65 at 91.85 with a 1.73 60. WOOHOO first time EVER she didnt drop off after the first pass. 20-30 minute cool down with the fan going per usual. Another PB MPH. Run 3) 7.66 at 91.85 with a 1.75 60. Run 4) 7.75 at 90.72 with a 1.76 60. Run 5) 7.69 at 91.08 with a 1.74 60. Run 6 7.72 at 91.81 with a 1.78 60. Really fun night to be in the 7.7's all night which is what Ive always wanted...apparently I just need a really cold night to do so You know its a good night when you have to keep adjusting your dial in faster rather than slower as the night goes on! Video of pass #2. Solo pass so you can kinda almost hear what the truck is up to! I put the big JLT filter back on the 66 where it belongs and ordered up this S&B along with another stock airbox lid to try and get something a little more permanent in place. No better than the stock lid and higher flowing drop in filter BUT it does pull hills in a higher gear with less effort so maybe there is some power under the curve. Also all my PB MPH have come with the open filters despite switching between them in the same night tho that may not be anything. I like it so far and it was 1/4 the price of even some of the cheaper "cold air" intakes out there. Added some weather strip from the Wagon to finish it off a little cleaner I had a chance to take the swaybay endlinks loose and made a couple 4hi 2500rpm launches on the street but they all ended in massive wheel spin so I wasnt sure if it would help or not. I took a small chunk out of my palm trying to get my tube step bars off so I ended up leaving them on and leaving the swaybar alone at the track. Will likely give it a shot next season to see if it makes any difference good or bad. Still might try the Meth injection out as well as last night proved she could be consistently quick when heat wasnt as much of a factor. Would love to be able to do that in the heat of Spring and Summer. All the heat/sound deadening is going back on today and I will be flashing to the 5 Star 87-95 OAR tune till next Spring. Sad but it was a fun season...more fun than I was expecting for sure! Matt

    Yeah that sucks bad BUT are they still open for the season or was that it? Maybe you can get another shot before winter comes. Matt
  19. Final Tues night TNT at the Hill

    This coming Tues (10/26) will be the final Tues night TNT at the Hill. Weather looks like it's going to cooperate and the DA has potential to be fantastic. I'll be out there again if all goes well to see if I can get a couple more solid passes in before flashing back to the 87-93 tune for the winter, anyone else thinking about goin? Matt

    Daaaaaang that blows Matt
  22. Beech Bend Raceway, Who's Going?

    Can't make it but would love to get out there. Good luck, let us know how it goes Matt
  23. What are your ET goals this year?

    Keep us posted! Cant wait to see how it does on its maiden shake down pass. It certainly has the power to run the number thats for sure! Matt
  24. What are your ET goals this year?

    Yeeesh hope its nothing exciting. You were booking last night despite it looking super super docile. I knocked the exhaust off its hangers and dragged it on the rear axle half way down the backroads to the gas station you get ice and and strapped it back on. Nowhere near as spooky as a potential oil pressure issue tho! Hope you get it sorted quick. Matt
