well, mine is a 95, I could get in a fender bender and they would try to total it...The engine/trans are being removed soon (using that term loosely) and it has 4.10....I can shift quick with my 5sp when 3rd isnt being a Dbag...but since I replaced the slave and master cylinders on the clutch, it hasnt scratched except when downshifting.....so I dont downshift anymore.

I'm shooting for a high 13 in the 1/4 after I put the 4.10's in and get some 26-27" drag radials.
Guess the ricers in texas arent as ignorant as up here...Something I have to look forward to I guess. Drawing unwanted attention from the cops with oklahoma plates aint gonna be too fun though.

ok seriously im outta here. glad i got this forum out of all the bickering and back into cars lol! peace out and keep it between the white lines out there people!
Was the mustang a 4.0 mustang cause my sister has an 06 5 speed 4.0 and it's pretty good but seriously no match for my truck! Those transmissions are a pain when quick shifting!

Yeah if they aren't Texas plates, they want to kill you!!! Lol. I had Missouri plates for a while and Oklahoma plates would even be worse! Lol

Luckily they didnt fuck with me when I had a 2011 taurus down there...We were on the beach at like 2am and a cop came up, hit us with the spotlight, drifted past us on the sand and kept on cruisin. My girl was freaked the fuck out. But my truck is a cop magnet as is...If I hadnt shaved the holes on the front bumper where the tag mounts, Id get an OU plate for it before I moved.

I don't know if I'll be getting to TX any time soon or at all, but I am going to try to take a long trip once I get my ranger built. If that happens, we should make this forum war happen for real.

yeah they should allow these races to take place at other tracks cause not everybody lives in Cali or wants to drive to Cali....

I'm surprised they didn't make you leave because cars cant be on the beach after dusk. The rangers were pricks when we had a 355 super meet down in galveston. I had been doing donuts and drifting in the sand and the people that live on the beach called the police because the wind was blowing the dust into their house!!!! lmao but when they asked us if we had seen anybody messing around, we said yeah there was a white silverado that was doing donuts earlier but it left!

if you come after november, hit me up...if I'm still in the hotel business, I'll get you a room for cheap...if not free...anyone coming to oklahoma city before november, send me a pm and I'll see if I can hook you up with a cheap/free nice room.

long story short...when I went to galveston, I saw a strait up crack dealin killer, a stingray swam into my leg and I thought I was gonna get eaten by a shark (it was sharkweek on discovery channel. And the cops seen us as we werewalkin back to the car. We were like half a mile from some resort, in a 2011...so they prolly thought we came from there. I waved when they hit use with the light, so he prolly thought we were just rich.

I don't know about you guys, but personally, I would be entertained watching a Colorado vs a Ranger competition.

STL said he registered, so maybe something will come of this.
Hopefully not like the mexican one where 10 people got run over!

Well, out of the 3 SS (n/a, sc, tc), i much prefer the turbo model.

People confuse them a lot, like they confused the saturn ions.

especially for the price a pretty quick car(not the n/a)

wish all the companies would start doing more of the hopped up stuff.

sidenote raced a coworkers built srt4 today lol. i gave up at about 2nd gear hahaha.
those things can be built like no other. hes right at about 530 right now and he's waiting on a bigger turbo should be over 600 in the next month!
