If it's not raced, why not a set of OEM Motorcraft?

Hey Jed, I didn't know you were up in my neck of the woods last week! This pic was from a local club I belong to...

Him and Koji made a banzai run up north. And on the return trip, a semi's re-tread took out Koji's front end.

Then how about some EBC Reds? Whenever I get around to replace my rears, I'm getting those.

Why not dish out the extra $300 and upgrade to some Bullitt brakes Its a perfect excuse, at least that's what I've convinced myself to do

You can get rotors, pads, SS lines and the front calipers for $450

Here's Koji's damage.



Brake pads I use ROUSH/StopTech in da front and EBC (RED) on the rear happy with their performance.

Funny I should of said something the trip was a quicky up Thursday morning and returned Friday morning. I do want to go to The Garlic Festival in Gilroy!

Funny when we drove up the 5 Frwy we saw the EBC brakes plant!

Here's a vid link from the show>

Dang, Koji's front bumper is f'd up.

I'm surprised it didn't take out the I/C, A/C stuff, or radiator; he got lucky there.


So is the Roush going to make the trek to the Garlic Festival?

Nice video. One nice thing about JR, he takes the time to sign and talk to all of his fans.

I'm alot better with the water thing. After 4 years, I'm starting not to care about stuff, like the undercarriage.

I think this is worse than Koji's re-tread. Both damages bad though.

Yikes, that was even worse!

I had a really bad fender bender in my 94 back in 08 on my way to a boxing PPV party when some idiot on a Ranger hit a Corolla and both ended into my front end The truck's insurance paid for fixing it on a, ahem, reputable shop that fixes expensive cars. They god a check for $2300 + other $400 from the truck's owners, but did a poor job on my car. They put used parts on it, knowing that I already put new ones in it (fender, headlight header panel, side markers). With that amount of coin, I would've put a complete Cobra front end w a Cervini hood and paint the whole car by my local guy. I didn't force the issue bec. I wanted my car out of there. And if I had a Mercedes or BMW, or knew someone with one, I would not recommend that place

Good luck to Jed for this weekend's carshow!

Looks like the Tacomobile is accepting the new DieHard battery, got a green status light on the Tender.
