    -06 2500hd 6l vortec 4wd. Kid in my neighborhood tried to blow past me using the 25mph roll trick after the light went green. I got him and pulled away.

    -Early 00's Tundra.

    --Kid in a Toyota Matrix. All out killed it, even teased him a bit after with how fast it pulled away from him.

    --5.7 hemi ram. (Muscle type of dude/later told me he had a tuner with an intake and full exhaust) got me out of the light, but he quit when I got around him.

    --Eco boost f150 (Tried like stink to outrun me from a roll when a light turned green early, Never left his rear bumper)

    --2014 Ford Fusion (AWESOME old man, put multiple cars on him from 0 to about 80mph. After he pulled up giving me a thumbs up. said his wife had one years ago)

    --Hyundai Elantra 2.0 Turbo (That was just bad, I came from way far back. He even said he bought it because he though it was quick.)

    --201? 2 door "4Banger" accord (He was like WTF?? Kept trying to rycer flyby me after we raced and Id have him again by 80mph or so. I know we went to 100mph once and I was leaving him)

    --1999 Audi A4 2.8 v6 Quattro w/5spd (Ironically my old car. I have footage of this beating a '79 Z28. Sold it to a buddy 3 years ago, that still beats on it at the races. OVER 350K miles. I sold it to him with 212K after I bought it with 165K and beat the shit out of it myself.)

    --Lexus big body stanced car. IDK I just heard the v8

    --2018 v6 charger (Honestly Close/ I put a car on him 2wice from 2 lights to 85mph)

    --Tried a Fiesta St after he tried to pull from me after both passing on a 2 lane road. After a drop to 2nd at 25mph and all of 3rd HE COULDNT, I pulled up on him quick. But unfortunately he wouldn't run me again at all. So I don't think I should have to fear a stock one.

    --Lets just say Civics as a plural, I seem to be only able to find the runts of the litter.. Id love a good fair run with an SI sedan or a GSR integra.

    -- G35 automatic sedan- gave me another run. this time I got him by atleast by 1.5 cars by mid 3rd

    -- late 90's e320- I raced this and the g35 at the same time for this one. It was atleast faster then the G35, but again the Benz still lost by however much. I saw his headlights fade behind me also so I didn't let out.


    I HAVE LOST TO...

    --a BRAND new 2020 v6 challenger. Air Force chick on leave got me by her fender and passenger door all the way t0 70mph from 3 different lights. (This is going to aggeravate me though) I wish it wasn't just a v6 challenger. The r/t would've been cool to barley lose to. But I'm not that fast. lmao

    and what in prey tell are you beating these cars that have way more horsepower than our 88hp 4 bangers? because I can tell you right now, unless you are driving a super scort. :/

    Yeah, theres some issues here. I currently have 2 2nd gen auto lx's and a 2.7l ecoboost f150. The f150 seems faster than a g35. But either way, it will eat my escorts for breakfast at 1/4 throttle, lugging at 1800 rpm.

    A rendesvous or a jeep compass will blow an lx's doors off.

    Yup just a whole 88hp.. Lmao no a lightened wagon with a Zetec swap is it. Hell I wish I had a turbo KLZE, then id try some rolls with cars worth a shit. I finally got the G35 sedan to run again also, ran him 2twice from2 separate red lights and not only got him, but a E320 sedan pulled up between us for the 2nd run, managed to get both of them.
    I honesty need another Go-Pro, Ill try to get some videos of some runs with people. I have a 20-104mph pull on my youtube channel. But that was the night I first drove it with the 2nd zetec in it and I learned I had to cut that little limiter wire. Ill Scale my cars curb weight soon. I've cut the A/c entirely ( which requires rerouting the belt), dry Iced the entire inside, and even hollowed out my hatch door. Ive cut weight everywhere as much as possible, even the bumper guts. Theres other shit like Goodridge steel braided lines and slotted rotors, and springs on KYB's but that's all for the way it drives. Again, its on youtube-> Tryin2fly09

    The car is just a 98 zetec/ 98-99.5 trans they're geared shorter 3rd-5th, exedy clutch kit/ ebay intake/OBX header/2.25 Trubenz full exhaust and a vibrant resonator/ 15" Scion Toaster Steelies wrapped with 195/55r15's.. Used a tire calculator to get a smaller size set then what was on the original 14's with 185/6?'s( 3yrs ago I don't remember). Figured smaller tires would help the final drive right?? Lmao its all math man. The wagons supposedly weigh 2404, But ive gotten so much out it has to be in the mid 2200's without me. Also, I'm trying to find an S/R ecu if anyone has one. Pizzaman Live in FL?? Ill 20 roll run that ecoboost you own for shits and giggles. SO far that was the closest run Ive had. I'd honestly be a lil nervous about a "staging standstill" with an auto Eco. Especially if it was a standard cab this time.

    Look up "Geronimo" He's on a roadcourse in an 1998 escort wagon with a zetec and he's literally trolling an RX8 for a few laps around the track. "Barelyrice" swapped a Zetec in a 3rd gen tracer, stuck a 50shot on it and proceeded to street race all kinds of shit and beat them down. It's easy to doubt when you don't know.

    Also, last Saturday night I learned the 2door accord I ran was just a 4 banger. Sorry I assumed it was a v6, it had the 18"-19" oem wheels on it and dual exhausts. I'm around Tampa Fl if anyone is around this area. Gladly meet anyone to show them the car. Also 33yrs old and have absolutely no reason to come on an Escort forum and bullshit anyone. Just figured shit, theres a few of these swap now, and Not 1 person runs anyone, or uses them?? I run the shit out of mine!! Id love to line up with "NovaNutcase", Ive been watching him for awhile now. lol


    Ive been around for awhile guys, since I wanna say 2007? 1st I was Jeepboy, then just Tryin2fly. I remember reading back when Neuspeed was still new to whichever Gtx/Gtr is in it now. (I honestly don't remember, I just remember talk of the red body kitted car getting boost) Skuce had an Eaton on a single cam, the Rieldeal had just made it to the 12's and ERDT was still up.. My Screen name should have been Ghost. lmao.

    I don't mind the doubt but will hate the trolling, I remember this forum well and Im glad I hid in the shadows with nothing more than a search button, because of how much B.S goes on here. Teamzx2 forum user's used to hate this place because of all the "USE the SEARCH Trolls". People would do more shit talking to waste their breath then actually putting it to use and passing on more knowledge. Ether way this place was getting flooded with crappy attitudes and wasted posts. I just hope all that nonsense has timed itself out by now. I'm running out of places to find some Escort love and knowledge, I just hope I'm not about to regret coming back here...

    lmao, no I usually try to atleast see their car lunge before I come off the clutch. Unless I'm nervous about losing, then I will try to tree the shit out of them.
    But with comments like this, how else am I supposed to take it other than, you saying even a zetec wagon is incapable of being even remotely quick?" Yunno, since I leave while the lights red and all. Maybe I can barely outrun traffic huh?? lmao Shit like this is half the reason this forum has been dying over the years. Half of owning a car is the people in the community, IDC if you want to admit it or not, but this place is dead compared to how it used to be. I'm sure if there was more positivity and less clowns this forum would be doing a lot better. Just ban me already. I've done all my learning from this forum, only came back out of boredom. If the Admins knew shit, they wouldn't doubt stuff like this. All my kills are shit cars anyway, again if they knew enough to deserve their title's they would know a zetec can be pretty damn potent. But the jokes of doubt show how little knowledge some ppl have. Don't bother replying because I wont be back to read it anyway. The years of cool stories and unlimited knowledge have been fun guys, but I'm done. Knowledge is power, and I think I've milked this for all it was worth. Me and my Scort are off to look for greener pastures..

    Idk why anybody would be banned. We just had no context of the car etc. It just sounded like a 5spd 3rd gen racing people who werent racing back lol

    Now that we know its a stripped and swapped wagon, yeah I can picture it.

    I had a zetec focus in the past, and it felt twice as fast if you shifted right before the limiter and had no passengers.

    We just didnt know what you were driving.

    My stripped 91 auto lx wagon gapped a 3rd gen wagon with two guys in it. They were more shocked than me.
