    Anyone in here have real (full scale) fast or race cars?

    I thought it might be interesting to start a thread to show pictures and info about real cars some of us might have, kind of to show interest in cars, rc or not. Thought it might be fun. Any interest or does anyone think this might be a fun idea. Not sure if this is right place to post, if not I apolgize and would appreciate input as to where such a thread should be posted. I feel it would be a good idea to show some wicked rc cars and real cars (for those into rc hobbie) but I have been wrong before, more times than I can count
    Thanks in Advance,

    Great idea. I don't remember a thread like this in the past. I'll have to post pics of my dads '67 Fairlane drag car if and when he gets it back out. I don't know a whole lot about it other than it's fast and has a 510ci engine... and at one point, had NOS.
    To the men and women of the US military, thank you

    Not that fast, but can get out of its own way, and as long as the surface is not too bumpy, handles well and is very predictable. Geared for the highway, lost of top end. Came from the Texas state cops. Got it 2 mo ago, had 90k, now has 103k

    09 Crown Vic Police Interceptor. Runs on propane, ethanol e85 or gasoline:




    It will do 140, although never took it to exactly the particular number hehe...
    Fast enough for this thread?

    I owned a WRX 2008 for a bit more than 4 years but i trated it last christmas for a Merc C250 2012
    The WRX was stage 2 running at 19.5 PSI, 256HP, 326ft-tq
    It was not a "race car" but that beast was pretty quick and sounded fantastic







    The Benz is not as powerfull obviously, but i still love it for different reasons. its RWD, its super fuel efficient and its a striking beauty.

    I have a 2009 Ford FG G6et that's pretty bombed out.

    Makes 505HP at the rear tyres, has a heap of mods and goes VERY hard.

    Very Nice cars guys. I have three turbo 4 banger mustangs with 23 liters of displacement, except for the road racing one that has SLA suspension and three link rear end, and stroked to 2.5 liters, big turbo ect. Also have a beater 84 svo, and a 85.5 comp prep SVO (1 of 15), but belive it or not my pride and joy is 2002 SVT Focus I bought new. Has 12:1 compression, LSD, one off custom coilovers, custom cams, ported head, pretty much gutted (track car only) If people are interested I could take pictures of cars but focus needs to be taken off jack stands first and get tranny re-installed.

    I have my 2004 Dale Jr Edition Monte SS Supercharged.


    It will do a good job of melting away the tires.

    I love my 95 Wrangler YJ. It's my icon pic.

    It'll go just about anywhere with the front locked.

    Here's mine, no longer has tint (for track visibility, and currently has slicks. had 248 whp on a good day, now new motor is going in, and its about 2400 lbs, so power to weight is pretty good. Also this is old pic, car is no longer registered and I no longer live next to MAM, hence the Nebraska plates.

    I have a 2005 STi for my daily driver.

    My dad has his 2006 2500hd duramax that has over 920,000 on it. That's with original motor and Allison tranny. It has a few things done to it. EGR has been eliminated, BW turbo, EFI live, 4" exhaust, intake. He's had it since day one, after he retired from GM was bored and needed something to do. So he bought this truck and started hauling campers to places all over the U.S. and up into Canada. Never been on a dyno, but the impressive thing bout it is his fuel mileage. 15-18 hauling and 25+mpg dead heading doing 65mph+.
