  1. WC Splitter

    I've had my LS splitter on my car for the last 6 months without a problem on the street. As long as I keep my distance when pulling into a parking spot and go up my driveway at a bit of an angle I'm fine. I've never had it scrape while driving down the road.
  2. New Mustang Video!

    Nice car. She was cute too.One thing I really can't stand is when they insist on shifting an automatic like it's a stick. I watched the John Cusack move "Drive Hard" last week just because it had a '69 Mach I in it. The movie was pretty bad but the car was nice, right hand drive too. But...
  3. What did you do to your Boss 302 or S197 today?

    Got my Boss Registry in the mail this week, #0092.For the NJ Boss owners I think it's fine on the windshield, it's well below the clear part of the windshield.Here's what mine looks like.
  4. Opinions on an X-Brace

    The X-brace does have some stiffening effect. I don't race but there's a turn near my house that has a bit of a dip in it. Sometime I can hear the X-brace shift a bit on the turn. I think one of the bolts needs to be tightened.
  5. GT350 Crash At C&C Houston

    Here's another angle. I get a young kid doing this, but this guy is old enough to know better. I guess he didn't have the traction control on!
  6. What did you do to your Boss 302 or S197 today?

    Can you post a link to the site for the registry. When I did a quick search the only one I found looked like it was for 1969-1970 only.
  7. TracKey use?

    I got this keychain on ebay last month for the track key. It's a heavy, quality keychain. It ships from Australia so it took a while. I removed the chain so the keychain wouldn't hit me in the knee.
  8. Leave it to Ford

    Yes, I did struggle a bit with the title, yours would have been better. I get your theory and it goes to what I was trying to point out which I did somewhat poorly. My intention was not to bash ford, I'm a ford fan (obviously), it was to show how large corporations can make dumb decisions. I...
  9. Leave it to Ford

    I took my car in to the local ford dealer for the first time to get the oil changed. The previous owner paid for the maintenance plan so it's free or I would just do it myself. While checking in with the service advisor he told me there was a recall for the airbag. I told him I knew about it...
  10. Any "essential" upgrades needed for a Boss 302?

    My recommendations are more daily driver related.If you live in the burbs I'd recommend installing the QTP exhaust cutouts. I drive mine daily and leave the house at 5:30am during the week. I leave the side exhaust closed in the morning and open them up on the way home and definitely on...
  11. TPMS question

    Also, I didn't need to program the TPMS sensors I bought online for my winter wheels. They registered after a few miles of driving.
  12. Best $20 Tool I've Found in a While

    Looks like it would work well for the wheels.
  13. Cars and Coffee in NJ

    I went to this show last month and it was worth the trip. There are a lot of high end cars (4 maclaren's last time) along with the usual mustangs, vette's etc. Last month there was one other Boss, a few classic mustangs. It starts at 8 and people started heading out after 10. I'll be there...
  14. Trackey Discontinued

    As an IT guy it's really sad they can't manage to get their new system to load the trackey software. A company as big as Ford should not have a problem like this.
  15. What did you do to your Boss 302 or S197 today?

    Count me in that group too. Fortunately I have not been stopped for it, yet.
