Thread title: challenge racing smack talk

By post #25 we're discussing the cooling power of the AC on 25 year old fords.

Proof that we can derail ANY thread.

I predict a $50 Q45 beats both Jags in autocross and drags. 

Ha!

You've spent three years of your life  "polishing" that turd, and unless you plan on feeding it ALL the nitrous, you don't stand a chance down the strip. wink

Just placed an order for "trailer spec" nitrous jets. Stampie can't ruin the dragstrip with Infiniti internals if I do it first!

My A/C will be colder when I get down in two weeks and actually fix it.

A/C drag race? Whoever gets the lowest temps wins? I know you can't race it because the stock trans is made of glass and I don't have my 6sp swap yet

If I'm going to have the slowest car there I may was well sound better than all of you with my GReddy SP2

anyone wanna do tug of war with my Freightliner?

"Defensive drag racing". You don't need to be fast, you just have to shut down the strip right after you make your best pass.

Don't actually do that.

Mazda G66 trans from a 2010 Mazda 3 or Ford Fusion / Mazda 6, equipped with the 2.5L Skyactiv. You have to convert to cable shift but it bolts to the Probe bellhousing. Theres a guy on Probetalk converting one to rod shift like the Probe came with from the factory and apparently it isn't hard
