20,299 miles. Happened last night during cruise, not a WOT event. Probably DCFC’d 15-20 times ever, still have 150 of our free 500kwh.
Car is going in to dealer this afternoon and I already called the Ford BEV team and got a case set up for any potential assistance in the process.
And, they weren’t willing to even fit us in due to the safety issue. I normally don’t rag on dealers, in fact, I usually support them on forums to an extent. However, this is garbage so I’m whining about it here 🤣.
And I’m not waiting on the OTA update because my wife drives her 4X on a 100...
Ok Ford, it’s now official, your 6900lb top spec Lightning is as quick as the 4900lb MME GTs in the 1/4 mile and far exceeds their trap speeds. When will you address this issue? @Ford Motor Company
Let me preface this by saying I’ve been playing around with different launch techniques because it seems Ford has limited initial output. I’ve done 1pd off/on, TCS off/on, Engaged vs Unbridled blah blah. So far, the quickest run occurred just the other day at 88% SOC with 1pd off and Unbridled...
Went out to run a quick errand this afternoon and decided to stop at our nearby EA chargers to use up some of our free charging balance (thanks @Ford Motor Company ). Low and behold, Electrify America chose our location as the first nationwide to do this:
Great idea to make the charging speeds...
I’m on record as saying I like the digital Lancia Delta Integrale looks a lot, interior - not so much but it’s ok. What stands out are the 4.4 0-60 and [email protected] 1/4 mile runs, very good for this...
Bought them from Tire Rack as part of a wheel/tire package but the wheels didn’t work out. See my other thread about the ASA GT-14 wheel issue. Anyway, Tire Rack couldn’t accept a tire return since we did take them through the neighborhood testing the new wheel fitment out.
Tires have approx...
Ok. I’ll get this out of the way up front. ASAs are a decent tuner type wheel but they aren’t expensive ($265 each) they’re made in China, and did I say they’re cheap already? ?. However, the overall finish/quality is actually very good and they are also about 5 lbs lighter per wheel than the...
Just threw the new rims and rubber on my wife’s 4X and thought I’d share here. Wheels are all 45 offset. Tires are Continental EC DWS-06 in 255/45-20. Each wheel/tire combo weighs 57 lbs, which is 3 lbs less than the OEM Premium wheels with the summer tire option.
Ok @Ford Motor Company, all of the major mainstream mags are now calling the GTPE the loser against the Y Performance and it seems that if the 5 sec. 100% power rule didn’t exist you’d have a...

Good choice, MT!

Another comparison video by reviewers I’ve been watching for a while reaches the same conclusion we’re all getting used to hearing:
One does it all well while even adding in personality and a dose of handling capability.
One is a driving appliance.
One is a fast heap of shit. ?
I can’t wait until the mainstream auto media entities start doing more actual range testing and including those results rather than EPA estimates. All 3 of...
Gotta say, these are some ugly Continentals. And what’s up with that pattern on the sidewalls? I’m sure they’re stickier than the OEM Michelin A/S tires but we’re ordering some 20” x 8.5” wheels with 245/45s so I’m going take them off and sell them. Shoulda saved the $250 we spent on the option.
Just did the online checkout and received the congratulations! Ford Credit approval, however, the screen where you sign the offer has all of the Estimated Amounts (apr 2.25/48 mos, monthly pymnt etc) filled in correctly but the Offer blanks just have 0s instead of any offer amounts. Does that...
John Davis very succinctly explained the trap speed issue. “…You feel like you’re on your way to an 11 second 1/4 mile…..and then it’s like someone pulled the drag ‘chute too early.” ? [email protected]
They did get a 3.5 0-60 though. ??
Still a winner for most buyers.
So it looks like Ford may have intentionally throttled GT performance in order to sell a bunch of $1295 power packs similar to Tesla’s $2000 acceleration boost OTAs. Not cool Ford. At least the upgrade retains the 3/36 b2b warranty.
Car and Driver just posted this today.
1. MME interceptor did 0-60mph in 4.0 and 0-100mph in 11.9, confirming the power throttling issue GT owners and reviewers are experiencing. I’d...
Was just able to print our window sticker today and it lists the size of the summer tires, which, was not listed when we ordered our MME on 5/21/21. They are the same 225/55 width/aspect ratio as the OEM all-season Michelin Primacys. However, I still don’t know know for sure what brand/model...
