    What the GT/GTPE should have been…..Hyundai Ioniq5 N details

    Wow, just wow. Hyundai N isn’t screwing around. Just read the details. 2 full laps of the 12.9 mile Nurburgring with little/no performance degradation. All kinds of structural and mechanical enhancements. 8-speed shift mimicking ability. For around $70K. 640+ real HP. You’re looking at a high...

    Tough high speed use case trip on SH130 toll road in Central Texas

    I’m not posting data in a spreadsheet or table format, just a quick n dirty old school write up. The trip was fairly short, but instructive as to the range limitations in a sustained high speed environment. We already know this to a certain extent but I know many of you don’t have 80-85mph speed...

    Anyone with FDRS available to run our VIN to determine trouble code?

    We’re getting a driver seat belt sensor error but my obd2 plug in is failing me right now. I’m trying to determine if our dtc is just the belt sensor or a larger srs module problem. One we can drive with until svc can tech it, one we really can’t/shouldn’t. Thanks in advance. I’ll PM our VIN.

    My HVBJB failure & repair experience - start to finish in 10 quick blurbs.

    11/27- HVB and Powertrain Malfunction warnings at 8:09pm CST during light cruise. Power reduced to maybe Fiesta levels, wouldn’t know because my cars all have 425-475HP except the MME 🤷🏻‍♂️ 11/28 - contacted local Ford dealers re: issue with details to determine who could service soonest...

    Awesome Cyber Monday surprise! - Service Vehicle Soon

    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. Yippee-ki-yay!

    A belated 1 year anniversary to the epic first 1/4 mile track test of the GTPE 😉

    Yes folks, it’s already been a year since @0t60-3.5 clued us all in on the fact that something wasn’t quite right. Revel in the glory that is the 80 page thread that started it all...

    Dealer says they can’t get 4X in for safety recall 22S41 until 9/24!

    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...

    Car and Driver: Lightning Platinum 12.7@107mph 1/4mile and 4.0 0-60mph 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

    New best 0-60 time in MME 4X (Dragy run)

    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...

    Cool Electrify America DCFC experience this evening - pics

    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...

    Motor Trend Ioniq5 HTRAC road test is in: It’s pretty quick 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...

    Texas FS: 4 new Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 UHP all-season tires. Size 245/45-20 for GT/GTPE

    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...

    Warning! Do not buy ASA GT-14 wheels for your MME- info inside

    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...

    Space White 4X on O.Z. Racing Gran Turismo HLTs 20x8.5

    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.

    MotorTrend: Mach-E GT PE vs. Model Y Performance comparison 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...

    Everyday Driver: Mach-E vs. ID.4 vs. Model Y comparison video

    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. ?

    Motortrend tests Mach-E vs. Bolt and ID.4 with predictable results

    Discuss. 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...

    Factory summer tires option on 4X, just delivered yesterday

    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.
