it would be ok if the show came somewhere local, but when they have it setup in a set place all the way in cali, people on other side of country cant do it.

How are we disregarding the rules if no rules have yet to be established? The only thing you have said is that the trucks be "fairly equal" and I agree with that. Detailed rules will be made after the participants are chosen as I'm sure the participants will want to have a say.

i was saying if we dont want to make rules then ok. the issue is that if we pick 2 participants then there are no rules to make. the vehicles are already set up. the only rules will be fine tuned things like "no nos" and things like that. i just want this to be fair. if you say "ok we run 6 cyl vs 5, no nos, 4 wheel drive, and reg cab". then we can pick our vehicles to that standard. or we say " no v8's, only turbo charged trucks, 2wd, 4 door" see what i mean. our trucks are offered with a 300 hp v8 and offered in 4 doors. i dont think the ranger offers v8 and 4 doors. if you have a different idea of how things should work then throw it at me and we will see what happens.

well seeing as how STL has stepped up, his truck is Supercab 4x2 lifted with the 4.0 V6. He runs no NOS (that im aware of)..lol. so basically its down to ya'll to find a comparible vehicle.

he isnt traveling to do the forum wars in cali. the step up for STL was between him and I since i live about 70 miles from him. we are going to do our own run for fun. he has been wanting to run a colorado for some time. so i am going to ablige when i get out his way again. or he can come to lebanon. either way he threw a challenge at me personally. otherwise we still need to work out details for forumwars

There's something you can get in the ford lineup at that price:

A F-150.

You're making this too complicated. Both forums only have a limited number of people who would be willing to race at Irwindale so there is no reason to try and makeup some arbitrary rules beforehand. All I'm asking you is this: What Colorados do you have that are willing to race at Irwindale?

Let's look at what your forum has available, then we can try to match one of your Colorados with a Ranger that is "fairly equal."

I already stepped up and I'm 30 min from irwindale. Bring a lifted colorado on 33's and we'll race a road course. Then once I win maybe I can show him the way to the dirt where we could race again.

i will see who is there that matches that profile, but just so you know. you have to race all the events to win the forum wars. drag race, road course, and if you tie then you race the figure 8.
