I'm already a member of blue oval fanatics which has escape fanatics as part of it and its tied to focus fanatics. But if you know of any other good ones I'll check them out.
Yes, the Escape uses the 6F35 and while not the smoothest transmission in the world, I will take it for it's consistancy and no clutch shutter.
The torque of the 2.0 EB is what I like, no need for the trans to downshift, it's making 270 lb-ft at about 1,500 RPM, much more than the old V-6.
There is good dialouge at both blueovalforum's Escape section and escape-central.com
