Nick.. I was watching your tac.. You have way lower gears then I ( 4.56 : 3.31's ) and a 5 speed ( mines a manual though ).. It just seemed like it took quite a while for you to hit that 4 grand mark..

Did some ricers state you couldn't hit 80mph in second gear or something? Even a 3.0 with a stick could do it.

I apologize for the misinforming statement on the vid. They are 4.10s. My tires are huge and the tune is still way off. The cams hurt the bottom end a little bit also.

Some gay kid said something about an Advance Auto tach and then he was like.... let me guess, next you are going to say it has a gsr top end and it has v-tec.... stupid crap that shouldnt matter sometimes just gets under my skin...

This is a family forum therefore I cannot repeat his exact words. But basically if you ever wanted to sell it he'd buy it, he has a 2003 Jetta.

I was gonna say.. with 4.56 gears.. you would have run out of gear with a 30 inch tire pretty quickly LOL!

Its all good mate. Sometimes its just better to sit back and laugh.. Then to say something and look ' mean ', Thus I don't post about everything I've done.. I just let people drive the stupid thing for themselves at meets and such.

Dave ( FMD ) and I were driving the other day and someone put a VTec badge on their Rangers tailgate.. WTF! I've seen LOTS of spoilers that sit over the top of neons and civics.. I LOVE the big NOS Labels and the explination of ' I have their seat covers! '..

I don't blame ya one bit for not posting videos all too often or pics or stats or anything as someone will get into a discussion with a ricer somewhere and use your vehical as an example to combat what someone else is saying.. ' Oh yeah! My uncles friends firebird can.. '.. BLAH.. what does YOUR vehical do.. Ya know?

I have a bunch of drifting footage I never posted ( Some slamming into curbs and almost flipping too! ). Someone laughed about ' drifting in a truck '.. so I figured ' why bother ? ' .

I think the technical explinations as your going along helped out people from this site as well. Not everyone is a power-junkie.

Good Show.

Nope, apparently Ford knew that some retard was gonna make a ranger turn really high rpms so they designed it to where it wouldnt... HAHA, no actually the speedo climbs a little faster than the tach. If I ever do hit the needles, I will be dam sure to get that on film!!!

if a donk rider came into your shop and offered you 50k for engine/drivetrain mods would you do it? and would you do his other 5 friends cars if they had the same deep pockets?
