    Tune is not bad, running a little rich at WOT. It definitely can use some adjusting, but I'm waiting to hear back from Rick after I e-mailed him back my data log. I want to get this thing on the dyno to really dial in the AFR, but unfortunately my car has developed some sort of tick :fm:.

    Hmmm, get any further on that? I wouldn't even notice that, unless it comes across louder in person than on the video. And even then if it were just one tick, I'd probably dismiss it as my losing my mind. You don't think it's attributed to the tune tho, do you?

    not at all, I'm still trying to diagnose it. It goes away completely once the car is warm... it's really weird. I may take it to Brads Custom Auto to see if its anything major

    Lots of fast cars at Krispy Kreme South Hill/Puyallup after 830pm Fri/Sat nights... shame there's usually only one mustang who comes. :rockon:

    The guy that bought my flows said that they start gathering around 7pm evey Friday evening, but looks like people are there as early as 5pm. The owner of one of the local business in the parking lot I heard is suppose to be BBQ in the lot as the weather gets better.

    I was heading north on 5 yesterday in my DD and saw the redfire cruising a couple cars in front of me. A new evo was passing so I pointed at the cobra out my window. Next thing I know the evo pulled up on the cobra, then it was all exhaust:rolling:

    I totally forgot about this gathering. I had duty Thursday night anyway and way dead tired. I'll have to check it out though. What is your DD? I always see this dark Grey Evo with black rims.

    Had a 1997 4 cylinder wrangler but got rid of it for a 2010, takes me everywhere the car won’t no matter the terrain. Would be better if the gas mileage better around town, it averages about 17.5 to 19mpg.


    Nice runs, when do you go to pacific? I heard it’s normally crowded and almost not worth the drive, but didn’t look that busy from your vid.

    every TnT. Either watch or run. Yeah ive heard the same but its really not. I could have gotten in 7 passes, but only chose to do 3. Typically its the same group of people each week, but i did like being the quickest street radial car out there friday night, haha. There were maybe 100 cars total out there. It was really only busy back in april and early may. As TnT's are getting more frequent only the hardcore guys stick around

    I dont think anyone went faster then me saturday who drove to the track on a radial. Of course I only got one pass and broke LOLPAPERREAREND, but still. I'll try to make it on a friday next time... damn work. Lots of trailer queens and showy cars up here, not a lot of dirty fast cars like I"m used to. I miss the south
