Might have to talk to them. He just told me they would do the MF thing but wouldn't come down another $500, so I told him we don't have a deal until he does.

I'll send Crown an email.

Well, they modded a car already in the list at 112... or was it 111, I can't remember which one they did. Either way, it'll be hard to tell until we see how long until it hits production, but he said the standard 6-8 weeks.

This is going to be the worst wait of my life, especially since I just watched my Cobra drive away today.

My 97 Mustang GT that I drove as a daily when I had the Cobra. I can't wait to get rid of it though. I mean, if it was at least fast it would be already but it's slow as hell, no luxuries (cloth, manual windows, doors, etc etc), and gets horrible gas mileage. Definitely a bad purchase on my part, haha. But it was cheap I suppose and fun for a little while, I just moved on to bigger and faster.

Leith. No one else would could beat their deal and they are much more convenient to me (as in about 5 miles from my apartment). I worked with Ronnie Dettmer and he is a great guy. Hopefully I won't have any bad experiences that some of you have mentioned.

Congrats. When we sat down and talk and I ask for $500 off the sticker, he looked at me like i was a poor man begging for food.

Oh well, i'm glad to hear that your experience was better than mine.

Eww. You drive a Mustang? Jeez, Mustangs are for rednecks and are slow, don't you know that brick can't go around corners?! Plus, I bet you can't drift very well either. DRIFTING RULES!

That should be an absolute blast, Amir. I think it calls for the new vorsteiner vented hood, brakes, a new rear bumper, new angel eyes, and a trip to nc. We should definitely try to arrange a caravan as the date approaches.

Dynojet around Charlotte???

hey guys, I have been to a couple of dyno sessions down at B.R.E in Concord, NC. they have a dyno dynamics dyno which as you all may know read very low numbers.

I just wanted to compare to a dynojet to see what exactly are the differences. has anyone got any idea on where I can go around the Charlotte area to do a couple of pulls? I would rather stay in the 20 - 50 mile range if possible. My best bet would say around Greensboro area maybe?

any ideas let me know.

If you are going to drive to Greensboro for a dynojet, go see Mark at Turbo Tune. EXTREMELY knowledgable guy. I think the number is 336.378.1252.

There is also a dynojet in Belmont, but I do not remember a name or number.

Found it:
Tom Lesperance at Precision Dyno in Belmont, NC
I remember him being a big Mustang guy. They say he is knowledgable, but I found Mark at Turbo Tune in Greensboro to be more helpful and knowledgeable, hence why I have over 500 runs at Turbo Tune.
