  1. Except Kevin, sometimes the beer you don't pay for is just god awful.
  2. Its mark. His image doesn't mean anything. He is the ***** destroyer. But #racesable does have one great sounding exhaust.
  3. #RaceSable got a new sticker!
  4. My dad did that once with his Toyota Minivan. Too funny.
  5. Im getting so pumped!!
  6. Haha no way. They are really rare in that color.
  7. I'll be there In the Focus ST Ugly stickers and mudflaps but it ain't my car. Dyno's at 240HP 305LB-FT torque. Thing is quick. First gear is useless... Taboo here but if you want a TCCA shirt, I'll have them, PM me.
  8. Don't buy a gen 5. Great motor. Great transmission. Great highway fuel economy and super roomy. The rest of it sucks.

      Built Ford Tough! And by that, it means tough to work on and tough to maintain! :P

      Actually my car really isn't that bad to work on. I find most jobs aren't that bad if you know what you are doing.

      At least the parts are cheap (relatively) compared to other cars....

  9. Make sure to have clear tubing going into the fresh fluid bucket to be sure it's actually pulling fluid in. My trans hoses are in a weird spot and there wasn't enough vacuum to pull in new fluid. I ended up just dumping fluid in the filler through a funnel as it emptied. My dipstick filler is in the front and vertical which makes it way easier then the gen 4's position. I did get 11 QT's changed and it didn't take long at all. Old fluid wasn't that bad just a reddish brown color and didn't smell that bad. New fluid does look better though!
  10. METAL DEATH BOX! Good luck. Seriously. Good luck. Roll over - dead. Full front - dead. Side - probably dead. Small overlap or normal overlap - definitely dead as a doornail.
  11. Going to do a trans fluid change today. Just going to pull both cooler lines off and put one into an empty drain pan and one into a bucket full of new ATF. Let the pump do all the work! Easy.
  12. Need to replace all of that on my sisters 1997. Once its mine I'll slowly fix it up to its former glory. Needs a lot of interior love too. The body is rusty (but not awful), and it has a huge oil leak I haven't gotten around to fixing yet. Luckily its not an awful fix. Someone stole my floor jack though so I have to buy a new one and thats annoying. I can't remember if I posted about this last week but I got they 1997 to run again. Pulled the ignition switch and steering column. I then drilled out the rod where it connects to the key cylinder and jammed it into the run position. So you start the car with the ignition switch and then the steering wheel and shifter are always unlocked. Easy to steal because you literally just have to start the car with the switch but its a piece of crap so no one wants it.
  13. Why would you get a N/A one?
  14. Get rid of the appearance cover and put hood struts on ford!
  15. I literally did this lAst night!! I want to gut and extended length one, separate the driver and passenger compartments, and turn it into a limo lol. Could be really awesome.
