  1. Sean - No shit man.... Unfortunately with ignore options you can still see someone's post when another person quotes them. So here it is: Mongoose - Wow. I can't believe you are still attacking and making negative comments about me because I ignored you. "Small man behind the computer syndrome" at it's finest. Your problem is you think your opinion is above the opinions of others... About everything. You are all to eager to cast stones, call people names, be degrading, etc. yet the first opinion or comment that doesn't match yours and you are offended. Your like a heckler at a stand up comic show giving the comedian shit because he said something controversial, but funny as hell and you're the only person not laughing and must make your opinion known. It sucks being around anyone like that. It reminds me of the term "energy vampires" as they suck the energy right out of a room. I am a very open minded individual with a very long fuse, but I don't tolerate bullshit.... ever. And you Sir have dealt more than your share. At the end of the day, I don't give a rats ass what your opinion is of me and frankly no one else cares either. Why you persist in making your thoughts known after the other party ignores you is simply a sign that your are nothing more than a forum troll trying to goad people into an internet argument for your own pleasure so you can have something to do everyday. Its sad really.... Good people have quit this forum and/or been offended by you. I do not have the time or desire to engage with you and placate your ongoing senseless banter. I've given this some thought and there is a time for everything to end. So its official: I'm done with Team Shelby all together. Good day to you all and best of luck in the future. Blake - VIPERNC OUT!
  2. Both are very nice. My wife wants a motorhome so we can go across the country and hit all the national parks. Sounds like fun at first until I realized how much driving I would be doing (all of it) and that is a small space for 4 people. I might rent one though and see how a 1 week trip goes.
  3. I pulled the #2 cylinder plug and it looked almost brand new. Cleaned it up a bit and reinstalled. Probably less than 15000 miles on these plugs.
  4. The decision to replace all 8 was more of a financial one. $67 for one coil pack of $235 for all 8. Seemed like an easy choice. Of course I'll have 7 good used coil packs available if anyone needs some!
  5. I moved the number 2 coil pack to cylinder number one, reset the codes, and drove the car. Now cylinder number one shows the misfire. Glad it’s just a coil pack! I think I’ll order all eight and replace them all since the car is 10 years old.
  6. I am wondering if it could be an injector... it cleans up at different RPMs. Maybe the injectors just need to be cleaned.
  7. P0302 Cylinder 2 misfire detected.... The car started running rough after hopping hard on the throttle getting on the highway. I have never changed the coils and it is probably time to change the spark plugs again. I've got the NGK iridium plugs in my car, but not certain what heat range to use (6, 7, or 8). Any suggestions for a 619 HP car?
  8. This is the only good looking mid engine Vette I've seen thus far.... Daytona Prototype.
  9. That was a great race. I was laughing hysterically at Pilet's charge from the back of GTLM to the lead on the first lap. You think he mistimed the start or just said "F it" and try to get away with his jump? Seems like Ford got their race trim wrong for Mid Ohio. How do you get pole and then not be able to lap with all the cars you beat in qualifying? I did see the GT start to come alive in the last 10 laps of the race, but then it was way too late.
  10. Cool that Shelby continues rolling out new Mustang offerings. I'd really like to see a fully designed Shelby Sports car again in the not too distant future rather than a hopped up Mustang. I know it is costly to design and build a car from the ground up, but with the Shelby name and a good economy it would sell. Maybe a modern day Cobra or Daytona? That would be epic.
  11. I'm just outside of the city limits of Charlotte, NC. Doesn't take long to find fun twisty stuff. Getting to the mountains takes about 1 1/2 hours before you get into interesting black ribbon. The Viper has very interesting characteristics. The one that caught me off guard a bit is the lack of engine braking. Ironically, the V10 wants to rev and jumps to higher RPM's quickly. I've had to adapt to the lack of engine braking on downshifts, but it is unbelievable to drive. A buddy of mine in his 2018 Porsche GT3 RS went for a drive together today and he was stunned about how much grip the Viper has. His comment was one word..... "Amazing!" Not bad from a Porsche die hard.
  12. I'm still laughing every time I get into the throttle in the Viper. The 9.0 stroker is insane. Yeah.... famous last words. Typically Tuesday mid AM they are all at the coffee house eating donuts. Don't go out there near the time when schools let the kids out though.... you can't go a mile without seeing one.
  13. I love it when he starts driving and the car drowns out his incessant need to run his mouth. I've got quite a few country roads near me that I drive frequently which remind me of the roads he is enjoying. Tuesday mid AM is a great time to go out there for a spirited drive and you never see the law.
