We posted on some local boards back in the day and wound up hooking up with Marty and - boom - FX was born lol. I got to see that car go from mild to wild, and when I met Marty I met Justin who had a supercharged SVT which he blew up (I think he blew it up twice lol). Those were the golden days, ha!

I posted in the fx thread a couple of times at random but I never did much following up. I have a ton of pics if I can ever find them of our cars in the old days when we first started meeting up. Which admittedly will be pretty boring since they're all nearly stock focuses sitting in parking lots LOL
Ahhhhhhhhh! Okay yeah I know who you are. I know I've talked to you recently, because I saved a picture of that shirt on my computer. I had never seen those shirts until you showed me then. That's awesome though to meet an OG member though! And I don't mind, I'd still love to see the pictures some time. I mean nowadays there's still quite a few stock looking foci going to meets. Although maybe 10 people go. Lol It's cool to meet a member who has been a member of FX longer than me... I sometimes feel like an older member when all the new members we had join the Facebook page last winter. But its cool though, most of them have been going to meets this year.

I joined FX right after Focusfest of 2011. I only had my car a few months, and didn't know about FX yet but I knew about Focus Fanatics. I went to FocusFest and about a week later Caleb (I think it was him anyways) saw I lived in KY and told me to join. From there on out I always tried to attend meets. A lot of the senior members started doing other things, and when I remade my Facebook in the fall of 2012, I started helping plan meets from time to time if Caleb needed help. Then Caleb kinda went MIA, and I started doing all the planning myself. It's cool though, Dustin runs the Evansville side of things, which is needing more members. My goal is to have a lot of Evansville members and Cinci members, so we can have meets in all 3 cities each month, so nobody has to drive hours for a meet. And then we can have one huge meet once or twice a year.... but yeah that's kind of all just talk. We need the numbers first. haha Anyways that's my FX story.

Hopefully you go to the last FX meet of the season with us!

Buy my Primes that are still for sale in the BST area. Lol

I mentioned this before, but I cleaned out the idle control valve a couple weekends ago. It idled much better, but its back to dying at stoplights again. I guess I'll just replace the valve and see if that fixes it. Lol

Edit: I was going to get this ICV, since the reviews of the one on Advance's website sucked. I'm just a bit nervous about spending $50 on a no name brand part, which is weird because the name brand one on Advance is the one that got crappy reviews.

Very nice build you got! I love the EAP rims
Thank you! I sold the EAP's over summer, and I'm still loving the ESM's. But EAP's will always be one of my favorite wheels for our cars!

They weren't worth fixing. Lol They needed a headlight restoration kit, and badly. They needed to be taken apart and cleaned out, because they are missing the back covers. The weather stripping on the outside of the headlights is peeling and partially missing. The passenger side wiring inside the headlight is screwed up- the wiring melted the low beam holder so I've been driving with my high beams on since May. Dustin Ewers is buying them from me next time we get together, so if anyone can make them better, he can. Lol

I actually just got an email from a guy asking about MPG, and I think he has an SPI. He lives near Cinci, so I told him to join Focus Xtreme and ask for you so you guys can talk SPI. Lol It's FreeFocus. FreeFocus if you see this, djwrg04 is David.

So I installed the wheel bearing yesterday! Everything is smooth as glass again, besides the occasionally smacking sound... it feels like my passenger side strut is loose. Is it possible it could loosen itself up? The road I live on does feel like driving over potatoes. And not in a good way. I only did the front right wheel bearing by the way. Not surprisingly, Ken Towery's lied that both the front bearings were bad. Lol So now I have an extra one I need to return. I also installed my new headlights. I need to aim them though. But I have low beams and I can actually use my foglights again! lol
