That's a cool video!

The way those Mustangs launch...that's what you expect 700 hp should look like in a HC, right? Put the right tires on the back and optimal suspension settings...it's got to...

$16/gal...yikes! I never bought at the dealer. I found a supply at a hardware store when I used to live in Cali. I have a feeling the stuff might be useful as currency as a doom-prepper item. :p

Nobody is upset. I understand why you are struggling to save face, though. The backpedaling didn't work. The faux apology didn't work. Casting aspersions that the other person is over-reacting...

That is an assumption on your part. My feelings are not hurt. I simply called you out on comments that appeared arrogant and judgmental.

Actually, you did. Just the mere statement that one prefers a manual because it is fun and allows you to "feel" the car, pretty much implies that those things are absent in an automatic (and that...

No, that's just something that manual owners repeat to themselves over and over. I doubt it would stand up to any real substantiation. I can "feel" the car just fine.

I like the 255/50r18 size, as well. The caveat there is there aren't many tire choices in that size. :( I think there are like 3 options...a Toyo Proxes STII that is unidirectional, a Nitto 420s,...

I currently have 3.06, so going to a 3.17 or 3.23 would be a shorter gear, right? I'd think the context of this topic is everybody is coming from a 3.06 gear as a starting point. ;)

Camber is typically not adjustable on these cars, unless you are swapping in different parts.

When you bring it in for an alignment, all they are doing is calibrating the toe in the front and rear.
