  1. San Diego, Temecula, Orange Area

    If you guys from the south are looking to cruise up, my friends are leading a cruise at the Chevron and roll up at 7:15 sharp -- 7737 Balboa Ave. That place is also e85 friendly. Should definitely see a Mystichrome Termi, White Termi, new Red Hellcat, and probably 10 others. Most of them...
  2. Tire question for anyone driving their car in colder weather.

    I was driving my Mustang through New England winters not by choice, and it was alright with bags of quikrete, kitty litter, and cinder blocks in the trunk, carpet samples and a fold up shovel. Had a cheapo set of take-off rims with all seasons, and another busted set with Blizzaks when 12+...
  3. Tint bubbles

    I'm not like a 3m certified installer (but thought about it) but it's alright, it's their value/entry level. From there it goes to 3m Color Stable, which is guaranteed to never purple, and then 3m Crystaline, which blocks nearly all UV rays out which matter if you burn real easy, or just don't...
  4. Tint bubbles

    Well, I mean, nothing stops me, you, and the rest of our families from going onto yelp and passing out 5 star reviews telling everyone that Taco Bell produced the best authentic Mexican cuisine we've ever had. Those bubbles are a combination of using cheaper and thinner material, not cleaning...
  5. Gas Prices [WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    Can you believe that Joe Biden raised the gas prices in Italy too? Friggin' $7.50 a gallon! He didn't stop there though, raised it to $1.70 in Kazakhstan. Wawa weewah!
  6. S550 pricing, what do you think?

    Ah, but if you look at the earlier history you mentioned, with nobody to play with, Ford stepped up their game and while albeit a little chunky, started punching up. So the Terminator did a little more than wave goodbye, and Ford figured out that it was Corvette hunting season, albeit, a little...
  7. i can’t be the only one who runs regular in a GT right?

    I believe my car has a grand total of like 7 miles where it was not on e85. Life's too short for shitty gas and driving slow.
  8. San Diego, Temecula, Orange Area

    Do the math, I guess. I've done up Excel spreadsheets to get the speed by gear by tire to guide me in my quest for 4.09's. I also put 3 columns so that I could play with keeping the same rear, but going to taller/wider tires, and changing transmissions. I'm going with the 4.09's because it's...
  9. San Diego, Temecula, Orange Area

    Talking about something, I'm getting some cage touchup work at Autopower this week, and should be up at Auto Club Speedway this upcoming Sunday with a handful of other Mustangs. Feel free to come on by (I think the track charges like $10 entry fee) and hang out with a bunch of us and get some...
  10. Who Names Their Cars and What Is It?

    Only an idiot would name their cars. So yeah, mine are the Albuquerque Stripper, the Poors' Light Silver Mullet, and the Fun Police.
  11. 2018 Mustang GT's catching fire

    Good eyes, however that is not to distract from the second picture. I'd find it hard to believe that the only two who have had this issue are track rats 50 miles away from each other. I hear everybody talking about how they drive their cars like they stole them, professionally race from a...
  12. 2018 Mustang GT's catching fire

    Curious, but how many of you are out there? I caught fire, and while I'm no forensic fireman, the fuel line melted/snapped at the direct injection pump, catching the passenger head on fire, and the upper coolant hose melted at the firewall/evap core. So, that sucked. Recently, somebody...
  13. S550 Lap Times (Road Course)

    Year/Make/Model/Trim: 2018 Mustang GT Track/Course: Chuckwalla Valley Raceway (CW) Best Lap Time: 1:54.929 Tires (Size & Model): 315/30x18 Hoosier A7
  14. San Diego, Temecula, Orange Area

    Anybody have any interest in Auto Club Speedway with Speed Ventures? December 4 and 5, should be cool and times should be fast. For those more adventurous, we'll be concluding the first season of the Super GT Cup with OnGrid at Buttonwillow on Dec 12th. If you're not ready for a Time Attack...
  15. Reputable Tire Install in So Cal?

    What exactly are you needing done? I usually just buy my tires and hit up my local Discount Tire because they're one of the few places that can mount wide tires. When I had my 20" HRE's, I had to drive all around North County SD to like 6 shops (Evans, Firestone, and 3-4 stanceworkz placez)...
  16. The Albuquerque Stripper - Salvage DIY to NASA TT2 racecar

    (Long post/story warning) TL; DR: It broke, we fixed it, we won? Friday didn't go as well as I would have liked it to have gone. Picked up the U-Haul trailer, all excited to get onto the road on a nice Friday and figure it out. Yeah, car wouldn't start. Or... rather, it would, had I just not...
  17. The Albuquerque Stripper - Salvage DIY to NASA TT2 racecar

    So close, I can taste it. Some buddies came over to absorb some of my sunburning and helped hook up the driveshaft and exhaust while I was doing up the manifold. But after a long day of double and triple checking everything, looks like we've got a chance to make Chuckwalla next weekend...
  18. Mustang GT vs ... (Post whatever you've raced and how it went)

    Let's see, things I've beat. 997 GT3 Cup S 991 GT3 C5 Z06 C6 Z06 C7 Z06 C7 ZR1 C8 E46 M3 E92 M3 F82 M4 GT4 Viper ACR Competition Viper ACR-E ZL1 1LE So the person waved us all on, and then we did an out lap, and then they waved a green flag, so we pushed the gas really, really hard. Then we...
  19. The Albuquerque Stripper - Salvage DIY to NASA TT2 racecar

    No, unfortunately with it being in the desert, the afternoon session has you driving straight into the sun on some sections. For somebody like myself with really light eyes, the photophobia/light sensitivity is a challenge that just sucks. Fastest sessions are generally first or second session...
  20. The Albuquerque Stripper - Salvage DIY to NASA TT2 racecar

    It's shaping up to be a good weekend. Got the motor in last night, ordered up a few missing odds and ends, and who knows, might even see if I can get my hands on a trailer and catch a few sessions with Speed Ventures to test her out at Auto Club. Figure I'd treat myself to a fancy MGW s550...
