I did until I drove one, no chance in hell I would own one. Those things are so slow it is painful. Also not as good as the Focus in the handling department.

Yeah, I was disappointed when I drove one. It had to be over 6K rpm to make any power at all, then shortly after it falls on it's face. On top of that, I didn't fit in it too well, so it is not for fat people.

Not planning on it, too much other shit going on. No idea when the next G2G will be though.

I'm the opposite, I'd rather have the 6 in any trim (V6 or MS6) over the 3.

Ok, I'll be able to make that.

I got my rear springs in today. Just waiting on the fronts, then they'll be going up for sale. Lolz.

Well fella's, I guess the good Ole' seat pants dyno was deceiving. I ran the 09 ses at the track sunday just for the hell of it, and I must say the 2.0 duratec is a turd LOL!!!

My best run was a 16.09 at 85 mph.

Anyways I was not expecting much lol, Great Lakes Dragaway has racing for free their first two weekends of the year. So we just had to pay spectator fee and it was slow so I decided to try it.

On a more important note, my good friend Corey broke into the 12's with his 04 Chevy Duramax 2500!!!!
