Man can't you see. When you're driving an obviously bad-a$$ed car like that you have to be ready to throw down at a moments notice. If some dummy holier-than-thou plain ol' Stang driver can't take the hint from the Cobra hood-emblem, Trunk Eject button, SVT, Boss, Cobra, PI emblems and stick-on faux carbon fibre what an awesome car it is then they just don't know a good looking car when they see it. That's why there was a chucky doll in the back, cause you know he doesn't mess around.

You see Leo, if you don't go, no one wants to go.

I think my painter told me no wax/polish for 5 weeks.

Well, at least you have a good reason for skipping the QMXI. Me on the other hand, it's just pure laziness.

I'm afraid to ask what that blue anodized handle is for...

Good news! (at least for me )

Dirveshaft install is 100% complete now.

New 0.350" shim is in place along with longer bolts and everything is fine, no riding conditions between the safety loop and MGW shifter block.

I was able to safely turn the shifter block out to 5 turns too.

Took the car out for a short test drive mainly to check for anything wierd (vibrations, etc.). Couldn't open her up on the highway because of traffic, but I went to my secret proving grounds and got up to 80 and no vibrations!

I didn't do any hard 'off the line' launches, but I can tell that it feels lighter under there. Also noticed that the car doesn't engine brake as slowly as it used to (it coasts faster in gear now).

Until I get on it, I can't say whether or not this was a good cost vs SOTP purchase. At worst, it'll look good on my show poster.

I was trying to be polite (with a quote I thought it was okay). I hate being just a number.
At work, I ordered a lab coat that says KARMAN on it.
There were so many guys with my first name I didn't want to be a letter or a number.

touchy.. touchy..

Karman, you must have missed the (with a jester I thought it was okay).

Kidding aside, Bill was the first to call himself Bill2, so he obviously doesn't mind.

Looks great Bill! Do let us know how it feels in terms of additional power or what the butt-o-meter registers.

I'm also digging your battery and what looks like a billet tray?

The look good. Hope they provide some more punch !!


Kyle, Bill (2)... I'd play BF2 but on my "gaming" machine they don't make it for the mac. The Intel mac is probably too lite on graphics. Do ya play any of the others, MOH, Call to Duty ?? Those I do have in mac format so I could join in with on them.

But I'd need someone to tell me how. I've never got into the Multiplayer bit.

Haha, I don't play video games. It was Karman that was asking Bill about playing. Wrong K!
