My car was on /Drive - The Smoking Tire

Hey guys! I don't come on this forum much, but I figured this would be a good reason to post a bit! I have a pretty well set up (imo anyways) cyclone, generally just enjoy them, possibly way too much

Figured I would throw this up on here! I was pretty happy with his review of it, and it reaffirmed my belief that the cyclone is a very competent platform and can be great!



*It is obviously not a 14, the actual video is fixed to say 2012, but the link still shows 14 :/*

He's the only reason I still watch drive. Was he in the Vette when he got there? That thing is gorgeous.
Hey, tell him to come to KY, there's a wicked Porsche he needs to drive.


Pick your poison.

Good stuff man, definitely one of the better One Takes I have watched.

Farah seemed to have been honestly surprised by your car.

Two parts of the video made me laugh, the noise Farah makes at 8:15 and then at 9:20 when he's talking about how solid the car is with no noises/rattles, then as soon as he says that, the shifter starts buzzing.

Congratulations as well. Very good car you have. From his impression you did an excellent job on picking the mods. It's beautiful too. Tell Farah, to bring his corvette more often. That thing is so sexy! But I guess doing his job is alright too. Did he mention what he thinks about it so far?

He didn't say anything about the vette, but he did say that damn fiesta is stupid fast. Makes like 320 wheel tq and I think 240 or 260 wheel hp.

I heard that too lol. I honestly though it was the camera vibrating, but then he said he heard it. Only lasted a few seconds though.

Yea. The MGW vibrates like a MOFO right at 2600 rpm on deceleration, but not every time. It only happens under those conditions, maybe 1 out of every 30 times. I am almost certain it's the dual mass flywheel and my DSS shaft. I don't have a UCA yet so my pinion angle may be slightly off, but seeing as the vibration is at the same rpm you can feel the flywheel vibration, it has to be that. But the MGW is so amazing, I don't really mind too much. #becauseracecar

Just had a chance to watch this. Great video. Nice review of your car. It's amazing what some suspension work will do for these cars.

I'm subscribed to the smoking tire on youtube and I love watching the one take drives through the canyons. Saw you with your car there a couple of weeks ago. Really cool video. I wish somebody would bring a newer 5.0 now though.
