There are too many on here that treat their opinions as facts, it's pretty damn annoying
More boring than annoying. Facts and statistics literally mean nothing to them, just knee jerk emotional reactions.

And look ... it seems two of them are still pining for attention. :LOL:

The only thing you missed is that this forum has many educated participants with their own opinions and some feel like blocking the opinions of others instead of having a conversation/debate. I give him the thumbs down when he wants to hide behind his block list that he's proud of while badmouthing and name-calling. While i agree that he does have useful posts, his incessant badmouthing and hiding is troll like and more closely resembles the names he calls other and the actions he says others are performing. I have actually even given him the thumbs up on several posts.
Yea I am not on here enough to notice things like this. I just noticed its very "clicky" 2 days ago. I have no clue who hes blocking but if hes blocking dale I dont blame him. other then that I just dont know.

Bad mouthing people on the internet is silly I def agree there. I try to act like I would in real life. Youll never catch me starting any thing like that but I get sucked into it pretty easy. Hes just never done that to me and not even in a post ive seen. I believe you I just never seen it personally.

Def a lot of guys that know this platform. I scroll thru the posts and pick up something almost every time im here.

Nothing to do with you Rugrat but for the record I will never click with any side I was kinda accused of that in a message the other day by a very smart person that one must of slipped past him. but nope thats not me or my style. I think for myself and if your a cool person your a cool person I dont care who you like or dislike thats your business not mine.

No, there's a few uneducated trolls on this forum that I've had to set straight and then block.

They know I'll never see any of their comments, so they use the "thumbs down" like insolent children who are crying out to mommy for attention! hahaha
I think it was this post here that got me accused of actually being you. lol I wish I was a fireman IMO thats the best job in the world. well maybe running the playboy mansion is better but you get it.

I completely understand. It's posts like the one you referenced where he hides behind his list of blocked people (I'm on that list) and calls them names and accused the blocked of being stupid/ ignorant etc isn't right. I won't hide behind a wall. If he calls me names while I'm blocked, I'll thumbs down. If he has a point or a good post, I'll thumbs up. I don't just blanket his posts with the thumbs down.

I don't dislike him since I don't know him. I dislike his policy on opinions that aren't him. He has been useful to many people on here.

BACK ON TOPIC!

Any new dragy times? Maybe with the FORD Performance tune?

I would be curious what the new ford tune turns up. We have plenty of data on stock and ZFG. I don’t think I’d ever get the ford tune but interesting to see the gains

Yup, that's one of the few people I've had to block here. I don't do nasty, uninformed and arrogant. So I blocked him.

If you want to know who to avoid here, just check out the unethical dopers that give me a thumbs down. Lol

I've experienced some great days, as well as some horrifying days. Hopefully, the former justifies having to deal with the latter (I think it does).

Regarding Hef's mansion, I avoid going where souls are wrecked. In that sense, burning buildings are a safer bet.

Anyhoo, stay safe Rocket!

Without launch control, all we can do stock is hold the brake hard and put the accelerator pedal to the floor.

My best times were with brake boosting, Sport Mode, Stability Control OFF, and 1/4 tank of fuel with the 40 lbs of extra tools/equipment I usually carry taken out.

With my first '22 ST and its OEM 20" wheels, my times were a tenth better than with my current ST and its OEM 21" wheels

That's why I went with the 20" wheels. I knew, all things being equal, that it would be slightly faster in straight line performance.

Yesterday on my way to work I made a small detour to my favorite mexican road. It was a cold dry morning so I thought I might get a good run. I got a 12.38@109.14 with a D/A of negative 1112' on 92 octane E10. I also managed a 3.95 0-60 on the same run.

I was inspired by my first sub 4 second 0-60 so since I needed gas anyway I filled up with an E30 mix. If the weather is dry tomorrow morning I'll try again. I now have the lighter 20's on with E30 in the tank and cool enough weather, I'm hoping for 12.0h's at about 111-112 and maybe a 3.90 0-60

I was sitting around doing nothing so I checked the weather and decided to go try another run. With a temp of 37 degrees and a D/A of negative 700 ft and an E30 mix I pulled off a 12.09@112.30 and a 0-60 of 3.75!!

I've had the FP tune about a week, otherwise stock, 93 octane. Found a quiet road on the way home from the grocery store. A little uphill, full fuel tank - 5.02 0-60. EFA12019-F72B-496B-AF0D-EF65D81E0421.png

Yet there are still wee 'lil trolls who clearly possess no working knowledge of anything automotive that "use thumbs downs." :ROFLMAO:

You can't fix dumb! Lol
You know it's fun that you complain about useless posts in other topics yet make plenty of ones yourself.

The old adage game recognize game works well here. You sir walk like a duck, talk like a duck, and quack like a duck. Wee 'lil troll.

It's pompous chest pumping for the sake of their tiny ego. The same people think their checkbooks and body count are the only variable that makes you successful. Small minds are not capable of grasping concepts or ideas larger than themselves.

My fastest 0-50, but that 50-60 increment killed me.

Definitely looks like it loses a little steam after the initial launch. Have you done an full 1/4 mile passes? I'd be interested to see what the graph on that looks like.

No 1/4s. Where I live it's hard enough to find a spot to do 0-60. I'm wondering if it's shifting to higher gear too soon. Maybe next time I'll video or log RPMs. Maybe try it in manual.
