For those I'm not friends with on FB, the Rabbit took 1st place in the MK1 class.

I'm going to make a for sale thread soon I think. I'm just debating whether or not I want to take it to EuroHangar before I sell it. A guy named Ethan Watson wants to do a feature on the Rabbit at EuroHangar he said it could possibly make it onto Canibeat.com. That would be pretty cool so I'm still debating on keeping the car til after that event.
bring it to euro hangar so I can check it out! lol

a little tolerance man. we're not hating on your NOS or Talon or whatever, so don't hate on our black wheels or choice or suspension.

just cause it's not your taste doesn't mean it's wrong.

I'm hating on the NOS........sell the talon and buy real power for the focus problem solved?

Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to watch gauges all the time. I used the wide band I got for the talon to figure out the fuel jets them threw it back in the box. Yes, I don't even run a boost gauge in the talon, there is no point.

If it.blows up, ill pull the kit out, put the other intake tube on it and have it covered under warranty.

Why would I sell the talon to fund a slower car?

Contrary to popular belief I guess mother's can drink while preggo. You living proof. Your also an idiot.

Nos needs to be monitored. So does boost. Dealers are as retarded as you think they are now a days.

nobody said you need to watch the gauges constantly but it's generally believed by people that actually understand how cars work (i.e. not you) that gauges are helpful for A) getting a car tuned/running correctly after adding new mods and B) once a car is running properly to keep an eye out for freak accidents/changes in running condition that could cause catastrophic failure.

however in your case it sounds like you have more time than money. as you cannot afford a relatively cheap gauge and/or N02 specific tune. but you can afford to spend hours at a dealership/on the phone with the warranty department etc. getting your motor replaced for free.

personally my time is worth more than the gauge costs but YMMV

personally I'd sell both and get a car that had some chance in hell of being a performance car. but its not my money/time

which as previously discussed you have too much of 1 and not enough of the other.

For one, why do I need to monitor a company? Two I do just find with out gauges just like many others out there.
