    In just about any High heat area of the country it is almost paramount to have your house split in to two zones instead of 1 big unit. One of the first things I did was replace a single 5 ton unit with 2 three ton units and split the cooling of the house in to 2 zones. The heat here in Texas over the past 5 summers has caused me 3 outages but I was never without a cool part of the house to go to. Or if you don’t want to go to that expense you can always put a small “mini split” unit somewhere in the house for about $1500 and that way you will always have a cool spot as a back up plan. In BB’s case, he could put a mini split in his garage to keep his garage queens comfortable year round and if his house AC goes out again he won’t have to get a hotel. He can just go out in the garage and fire up the mini split and sleep in the comfort of that big, bloated, and primer coated Challenger………......

    Torque news is wrong. Here are the sales figures for the USA in 2018. ps: I don't have the sales figures for "worldwide" handy, but I guarantee you the Challenger and Camaro are NOT outselling the Mustang Worldwide either.

    #125 is in 'da House! Just dropped off tonight. This car is badass. Can't wait to really drive it. Don at Vantage Sportscars provided the best car buying experience I've ever had. Complete attention to detail and customer service. Highly recommended.

    Hmmmmm.......................... "So, while the Challenger is still trailing the Mustang in the 2018 annual sales race, it is doing considerably better than either of the competitors in the grand scheme of things – posting solid growth while the competition is way down." The Mustang sales might be down a bit BUT, it is STILL out selling the Challenger...........................The Challenger has been and still IS, playing Catch Up with the Mustang............................ so I guess you can say that, the MUSTANG is the Hottest Selling Muscle Car STILL......

    I just procured #125 from Don Miller at Vantage Sportscars in Orlando. I can't speak highly enough about this guy and the entire experience with him. He really knows the Hertz cars. He has sold more than 30 of them. He told me there has been a flurry of activity in the last two weeks. Hertz has only about 15 left and they are ALL on the West Coast. He still has two expensive cars that have not been rented and one extremely expensive executive car. I am pretty darned excited. Have not seen one in person....

    I agree Goose the all mighty buck is the key.....exactly there's no promoting the bad side of sugar but people have known this for many years don't know if you've ever heard of a guy by the name of Jack Lelane?...he passed away some time ago in his 90's but he was sort of a health guru and used to do feats of strength...he was saying sugar was a poison way back in the 50's and how his life had changed when he stopped eating the stuff...the research is out there but they don't seem to like you say make the mass population aware of this.

    Wasn't putting anybody down. I was just posting an article that had a different take on her performance at the ESPYs. What I don't like is that the media seems to make her out to be the only woman ever to race NASCAR and she is not. There were plenty of women before her who were as tough or tougher. Why doesn't the media ever mention Ethel Mobley, Sara Christian, Louise Smith, Patty Moise, Shawna Robinson. I am not taking anything away from Danica here, but the fact is her driving record in NASCAR wasn't that impressive as compared to other drivers. Notice I said DRIVERS, not male or female drivers. If you are in the car you are a DRIVER. But if anyone comes out and says what I just said they are labeled "sexist" or "unfair". The problem right now with women in NASCAR is that NASCAR doesn't really want the best woman drivers, they want the most "marketable" woman drivers and that is why a better woman driver hasn't risen through the ranks yet. I would like to see a woman rise through the ranks and win some races based on her ability, not just her marketability.

    First things first. The carbon looks outstanding on the GT-H and after dealing with those 2 ton hoods, the struts were a great move! Second, you're right, while you were dancing, I was in the parking lot getting up the nerve. If I don't find it, so be it.

    Thanks fellas. It’s only one of the units that crapped out. Unfortunately it’s the one that cools the side of the house we ‘live’ in. 114 already at noon here. They called us at the hotel this morning to say they’re swamped and will not be able to come till late today. So here I sit in my air conditioned garage in my C7 with the BOSS302 a/c unit set on 80F ....... swigging a nice cold Ensure!! Ahhhh.....the life!!

    I spoke at length with Shelby Today. Team Shelby appreciates all of you who contribute to the forum in a positive manor. As a result, the Non Automotive thread will continue however, there are and always will be some hard and fast rules. This website is run by a corporation with directors and business relationships. They cannot allow users of this forum to adversely effect their business and, I don't think anyone of you would want that. This has been posted elsewhere but, I have stickied it here. There may be updates and if there are, one of us will make it known. Please people, read and heed! 1. Observe the golden rule! 2. If you have nothing good to say, say nothing. You dont like a car someone posts, skip that post. Dont like the motor, skip that post. Silence is golden at times. Don't like the subject of the post, don't read it. 3.No posting links to other competitive forums 4. Unless you are an authorized sponsor, you cannot advertise here. We appreciate people who work hard to make a living but, we also have people who pay Team Shelby to sponsor us. Those payments go back to our members in the way of events. Members are allowed to advertise personal items for sale . 5. No bashing Shelby or Ford Motor Company. This does not mean you cannot criticize, that can be done in a tasteful and constructive manner. If the issue is personal, (IE, you didnt receive a part, ect.) take it to the person who can help you. If they dont respond, take it to a higher level. Dont post it here! 6. NO CUSSING, NO NUDITY of Demeaning pictures, male or female. We are a family site. We do have kids frequent the forums and we want them to be able to continue. We are here to train the new generation of Shelby enthusiasts. 7. No political or religious discussions. We are not trying to curb your right to free speech however, we have found by experience, these threads go sideways quickly. This includes controversial subjects such as firearms or other polarizing subjects of the day. It does not mean we disagree with your point of view, it just means we do not want it discussed here. 8. No disrespecting others. This especially includes the staff at Shelby international, Shelby American or fellow users of this forum. People are here to enjoy themselves not to be stressed out over their automotive passion. 9.NO SPAM. Yes, as hard as we try, it will happen. If you see it, report it. 10. No using the PM function of this site to harass or threaten anyone. Consequences will be swift Although not meant to be all inclusive, the following guidlines should keep everyone, users and admins on the same page. If you have to think too long whether a post fits in the above list, its probably best to not post it. These are not suggestions or negotiable Carroll loved the fact that Team Shelby was a place enthusiasts could come to talk cars or sometimes, life in general. He wanted for each of you to enjoy your time here and the passion for the brand he built. Its our goal to keep the passion going, dont let others forget and teach those who come after us what it means to be a Shelby owner and fan. Lets all keep it positive.

    That sounds about right because typically Ford's world wide sales are about 20 to 30% of USA sales. I think in the past 3 or 4 years the only time the Challenger outsold the Mustang was back in Feb of this year. Its going to be interesting to see what happens to the Challenger when Hyundai buys FCA in the next year or so.

    Ok, I finished painting the wheels and reassembling the car... I posted the two of these I bought, a couple months ago in their boxes. They’re Bigtime Muscle 1/24’s. I bought this one (had black wheels) and a black one with black wheels and red outer lip, with red stripes as well. I’ll leave the wheels alone on the black car, because the red lips look sweet.

    It's pretty simple. If you turn on an air conditioner in a sealed room, the room will heat up. Air conditioners (all refrigeration units) produce more heat than the cold they produce. The same rules will of course explain why it takes more energy to charge a battery than the power the battery can produce, and just think about that as it applies to electric vehicles.

    While you think you may have a good idea, you have several issues to overcome. 1. There are several hundred if not several thousand different sized vents. Actually what you are calling vents are actually called “registers” and depending on the area you live in they can be in the floors, walls, or ceilings. .Then somewhere in the house you usually have 1 or 2 “returns” or “return vents”. Most registers range from 4”x8” to around 12”x16”. Yes there are some larger and some smaller registers but the dimension range I just gave probably covers about 80% or more of the market. So within the 4”x8”to 12”x16” size you have multiple size restrictions which leads to your next problem. 2. You are failing to address the fact that current HVAC technology is not small enough to accomplish what you are trying to do and probably won’t be for a long long time. You have to have a certain amount of surface area within the unit to remove heat to accomplish cooling. Currently within a 4”x8” to 12”x18” size vent you cannot pack an electric motor, condenser/compressor/electrical controls/Cooling fins , etc to pack enough BTU’s to get enough cooling effect to cool even an average 12’x12’ room. Even small Dome units like ones used on RV/Motor Homes/Tractor Trailers that put out 5 to 15K BTUS measure in the 19”x20”x15” or more range and those are only for intermittent duty. 3. You are also not considering that current zone ducting technology can do the same thing. Why pay $2000 to $3000 per room for some super compact AC unit that is going to have NASA price levels and be made of “unobtainium” as compared to existing technology An average 1800 sq ft house with 3 BR/2 bath has usually also has a kitchen, den, dining room, living room so right there you are at 9 rooms. And don’t forget on top of the cost of the unit you have to pay an electrician or HVAC person to come install and wire it, so right there you could be at $18000 to $27,000 for your idea to do an average new 3br/2bath home. Why do all that when you can install a standard ac unit outside for $8 to $12K and fit or retrofit “smart ducting” to heta and cool any room you chose at a cost of a few hundred dollars per room? 4. If you are talking about adding “capacity”, such as device to cool just one room there are already several options on the market in the form of Mini Split systems and ducted room spot coolers and ductless zone cooler that you can buy for a few hundred bucks ot a few thousand dollars depending on size. 5. Also, in many homes the “registers” are not heavily supported and sometimes they are set in just a hole cut in sheet rock. So now if you have an AC unit that fits in that hole it is going to have some weight to it and you will have to go in and add support bracing, and you will also have to wire over to it. 6. if it was such a good idea then Trane,GE, MIstsubishi, etc etc would probably already be offering it. A number of manufacturers already make “zoned” and “multiple zoned” ductless systems, they just don’t put them in existing registers/ductwork. 7. Also most home AC units require that cndesation be captured and removed to the outside or captured in the waste system of the home. So. now you are going to have to ad din the cost of multiple locations that you have to somehow plumb and drian away/remove all that condensation otherwise you are going to have some mold issues and code issues Not trying to shoot down your idea but I don't think you have thought your "Insta Freeze" Idea through in any depth. In addition, I don’t think there is currently available technology to accomplish what you want to do. If there is, it is going to be so highly priced that it probably wouldn’t even be marketable when compared to currently available options, such as, the previously mentioned above “smart ducting”, Mini Split systems and spot coolers that are readily available and popular in the market……..if you are looking for someone to “run with” your idea then your investor would probably say what they say on Shark Tank………….”I’m out”. But anyhoo good luck to you.

They tell me most of my old buddies from the old TS days are all over there. I refuse to sign up on that site. It’s just a government watchdog. No thanks.
