Yes, I think he does. But I do take notice when multiple journals all report about the same test results. When that happens, it tells me something.

Thanks bro, but I don't really think that he was being abusive. It's just that I don't trust him because after his mom started up on these forums, she stopped after only a short while and then he took over (continuing to use her Focus Forum name for a LONG time w/o ever having told anybody).

That's just plain wrong.

So, that being said ....

Let's everybody just do a group hug!

And so now W/F can finally Rest In Peace.

I thought that if someone didn't run a "Motor Trend"ish 15.7 with their ST, that W/F was gonna throw himself off a bridge or something.

Another life saved ...

And it's not that I was going nuts about this... it's the fact that you expect me to accept the fact that an ST isn't FAST which it's not, but it's the fact that you don't want to accept the fact that an ST can run a 15.7 when it can and has been proven quite a few times...

I also don't trust a fireman that is willing to get into an intense conversation AT THE FIREHOUSE when he should be doing other things like making sure that everything is in working order, checking things etc.

I have many family members and friends that are firemen and I know that there is MANY things to do when your not on a call and at the firehouse and getting into an intense conversation isn't one of them.

And just so you know I am basically the one who signed my Mom up but she didn't really like it... you seem to be the only person who has a problem with me being on these forum's.

Yes it will. And because of the SAP, that's the reason why I bought it. Don't get me wrong, I love my car. And I have a ball driving her!

Quote:
mightymouse32205 proved that with his 10.1 1/8 mile time and when converted, if he kept shifting good and really pushed coulda had a 15.7 quarter.
Hmmm. "Should'a", "would'a", "could'a".

Well, I actually DID run the entire 1/4 mile, and powershifting, I ran a 16.1 (although my car did only have 1,800 miles on her at the time).

And yes, I wasn't even close to having found my best launch with her yet (with only those 3 runs).

So we'll see.

With more miles on her, and with a lot more runs down the track, I guess that I should at least be able to break into the 15's.

But I'm going to agree here with something that AutoOutcast said, that I do not plan on putting 4 or 5 thousand dollars into my car.

For me (if I wanted to go that route) I would probably just upgrade to a more higher-performance vehicle.

I think ...

in my opinion... it's more fun to buy a somewhat slower car and put on what I want to put on instead of having factory parts that aren't all that impressive.

Sorry, but you missed the point W/F. Please re-read what I had written.

Oh what the heck! I'm a nice guy, so I'll explain it to you one more time:

It's not that it was wrong that your mom "ok'd" you using her name, it's the fact that you didn't let on to this until a VERY LONG TIME afterwards.

I rememeber you having stated that she wrote the first 10 or 15 posts, but after that, that all the rest were yours. That is wrong!

Now do you understand?

Pardon me? Who says that I am writing this to you at the firehouse?

I am at home today, if you must know.

Well, I am not speaking as a person who "has many family members and friends who are fireman".

I AM A FIREFIGHTER.

And being a Professional Firefighter, I also know that we don't tell non-career firefighters/civilians about what we do in the firehouse. That is how professionals handle their jobs.

So believing those people was your first mistake.

Aha! And now even more lies have been revealed! So now, I trust you even less than I did before.

And for your information young boy, the thing that I have a "problem with" is LIARS.

Something of which that you are increasinlgly demonstrating to us that you are.

Is there anything else that you want to confess to us?
