He really means well.
I think the biggest problem with J.R. is that his enthusiasm gets the better of him and his pride won't let him back down... just my $.02.

He wants everybody to be happy, and sometimes that isn't possible. Unfortunately, it has lately been me that has been let down, but at no fault of his own.

The 3 times I have met with him, he dropped everything he was doing and was out to meet me within 5 minutes.

Then the excuses start pouring in all around us. We don't have anybody at our booth to load your tune (DiabloSport)... we had power hooked up late (dyno)... we aren't ready yet (dyno)... we can't put your car on the dyno because our boss is here (dyno, again).

I did the tune myself today at work during lunch (I found a cable that worked). Which I like better because the only people I trust loading in the correct tune is me and Scott. The incorrect tune made for 87 octane while running 7psi of boost = boom.

The 19th... isn't it ?? third Wednesday of the month I think ??? Hell if anyone should know I guess I should. I know today or tomorrow someone is calling R&R's to let them know "it's on" so it's going to happen. I'll find the for sure date.


BTW, Santa is NOT Jon.

The 2010 doesn't look like it's too much of a departure from the current S197. But then again, it's all covered up!

Noticed that they've moved the antenna to the rear quarter panel.

The first things I noticed were:
A) Shelby GT500 Style Front Fascia
B) Antenna to Rear Quarter Panel
C) New Rear Lights
D) Redesigned Side Mirrors.

I've had a tire vibration since my Ranger got hit in the right front. I found a speed where it totally goes away:

Coming home from work.

Slightly, but I was really smelling fuel - might have been from the cars in front of me also doing 90 or so.

None.

About 6 of them... I posted the highest speed I reached.

Tom its refreshing to have you around here, you lighten it up for us..............
Thanks!

That's a 2-way radio antenna (magnetic mount).
They have those on most of the pre-production cars on the road.

My Ranger will do 89 easy. Smooth as silk.
Only problem is the speed limiter is set for 90.
I guess I need to get a tuner for the truck too.

Maybe that's why I could only go 90?
