  1. Kooks Long Tubes - Looking to go back to stock

    Seems to me there are only a few options available. But I think the remove the wife from the equation may appear to be a solution but I'm fairly certain that doing so won't go well.... Not going to comment on the disclosure and whatever representations exist about emissions standards and...
  2. Totaled ?

    Yes, expect repairs all told in neighborhood of $10,000.
  3. Ford fined in Australia re: Mach 1

    Tsk tsk. Nothing new here. It happens. Understand the metrics of building cars and manufacturers complying with specific country requirements... emissions, headlights, safety standards both uniformities, differences etc. Then there's export regulations and that alone is a spider web. And of...
  4. Mach 1 HP wheels

    Thanks for your reply. I ordered a set tonight. Price is reasonable indeed. Months back I took my Cup2's mounted on the factory pp2 wheels to be used for track use and I bought the FP satin black PP2 wheels using same 305-30 all around but with Michelin PS4S. In almost one year since I...
  5. Mach 1 HP wheels

    So.................. Now that it's mid November did anyone get these wheels and if so comments as to weight, color, and what tire make and size mounted? Is everybody content and happy?
  6. Will America again move to smaller vehicle (no politics)

    Americans will continue to enjoy relatively larger sized vehicles compared to Europe and Asia. The real progression is not in the internal combustion, fossil fueled vehicles.... it's in electric vehicles. Energy costs have always ebbed and flowed in terms of pricing, supply and demand...
  7. Looking for removable vinyl racing numbers for track day

    I've used Harris Decals for years. Good variety and selection.
  8. 2021 Mustang Mach 1 Orders to be cancelled because commodity shortages

    Fact is the automotive industry has over the years become increasingly dependent on technology components and lighter weight materials that have derived benefits to the consumer. Today, post pandemic, there's a vast majority of industries requiring components that manufacturers worldwide have...
  9. Hood Flex??

    No. I'm looking far ahead at those speeds because I'm where I'm looking in no time at all. It's enough for me going that fast on track let alone have some big ass truck blow me a wall of wind. But no for me.
  10. wheel fitment question

    Yes, I understand the additional 1/2 " (.567") poke in the rear. I don't think there's an issue so long as you've got clearance at ride height then factor suspension movement under load conditions. The tires at the sizes you're planning to use will look ok I think...maybe even a slight...
  11. wheel fitment question

    Your friends car has a nice dialed in stance. You wanna go a wider rim by +1/2 inch with +22 offset on all the corners?

    Bill, As yet I've not incorporated any tune. I'm bolting in BMR Harness, will add Schroth harnesses, Barton Hybrid 3 shifter, steeda driveshaft loop and rear diff bushings and Cortex rear links and toe links. I've got 38 miles on the Sport Cup 2's they'll go back on and if I'm still making...
  13. New TSB issued for 2020 Mustang 5.0L Built September 1 - December 1, 2020

    9/15/20. 1,625 miles. No mods other than JLT breathers on each bank. I may as well step up on track time now. Still gonna live north of 6,500 rpm and to red line. If it happens it happens. For me Performance Package Level 2 enhances the drive it like I stole it mode. Ford's dime for a time.
  14. Trailering

    Same here.... no issues.
  15. How to Listen to Your Favorite Songs?

    I just use Spotify account. I have my album lists and I Bluetooth them from my Android phone. Done. I rarely listen to music in my Mustangs. The real music is continuously played with the gas pedal. That's the only thing I'm interested in listening to.

  17. Anybody do their own alignments?

    I use Snap-on turntables on my own fabricated stands that have acme thread legs for leveling with both Snap-on bubble caster camber gauges and a Longacre bubble gauge for older cars. For my newer vehicles I use the Longacre digital caster / camber gauge with tripod type mount to alloy wheels...
  18. One of our local Ford dealers racing their new inventory at the track

    So this is a drag strip. And those cars staging are going to run whatever thed setup is 1/4 mile or less. Those other vehicles are to be polite not actually anything most people would expect to see on track.
  19. One of our local Ford dealers racing their new inventory at the track

    And by the way, how the hell is this car being abused? From your representations about the dork supposedly asking for help on modes for this car, if he truly works for the dealership should simply have his sorry ass fired.
