Ever feel guilty?

You know, after you run the Stang hard...afterwards, do you ever feel guilty?


I'm just afraid one day I'm gonna go out and something is not gonna work.

dont you ever rub its sweet spot when youre finished running her hard?

no seriously. i usually rub the top of the dash after racing someone and say "good girl" or "you know you like that". after she got rear ended i rubbed the spot and told her "dont worry, its just a scratch, youll be fine in no time". she usually doesnt give me any problems.

try that. it works. itll only do bad things if your car doesnt like you. like the tbird didnt like me when i ran her hard, so she barfed up 2 trannies, a ecu and shat all her a/c stuff. i think i found the eclipse for a reason, and i know she loves me as much as i love her.

btw i named her angel cause i just showed one of my freinds the "angel eye" headlights and he gave me that suggestion.

do i need help?

We're still working out the ruff stuff on the tranny. Going from an auto six days a week and then the 5spd one day, it's ruff on fridays.

I think she likes me.

ragging on a car and running it hard are different you can run a car hard with out beating the crap out of it, if by hard you mean high rpms and what not.

Oh, I launch it hard frequently and the 2nd gear chirp is fun stuff! Heck, I can get the occasional 3rd gear scratch now with the gears. lookin forward to the x pipe

Taking it to the track is fun generally it's not too hard on the car with street tires though.

Once a week I go to the closed air strip and bust on 130mph and then cool down with a long coast without the brakes, A well built well taken care of beast will actually enjoy a hard runjust like a horse. As long as you care for it change the oil and fluids and wash the her and balance and rotate the tires and keep the electrical system in good working order the occasional hard charge is just what the doctor ordered

I treat my mustang like a horse. I give it respect, and it gives me what I want.

What you think it is going to blow up if you take it out for a run. Let me tell you something about automobiles that are overly babied. In real world mechanics and engineering wether you flog your car every once in a while or not wont case a bit of extra wear and anyone that tells you different is full of Crap !!!

It gets driven once a week. Six days a week in in an auto and that Friday I tend to be a little rusty on clutch.

It's not the engine I'm worried about. It's the transmission.

you do know easing into the clutch as opposed to positive engagement will wear out a clutch twice as fast because you are inducing slippage which causes wear.

Guy at school does the "positive engagement" thing. On his third set of tires.

That is not Positive engagment that is power shifting and yes it will wear out tires and clutches

Well describe "positive engagement" then.

I pull the clutch back till it catches and then give it some gas.

Yes actually going balls to the wall is sometimes good for the engine. Now those who baby there cars can develop carbon build up which will clog your engine. On the AFB, we're not allowed to go over 20mph on the flight line, but where the planes are and where our shop is, is about a 1/4 mile atleast, this is particularly hard on the engine. Engine were built to run!!! Keeping your engine in a low RPM will do nothing but clog your exhaust. I wouldn't say I take my car up to 5000 rpms regularly, but I would say I do it a few times a week, ok with all that hp I have, I do it everyday!!

Positive engagment is when you push in the clutch come off the gas slightly, Shift and come off the clutch in one rapid moment

Power shifting is depressing the clutch shifting but keeping the gas pedal down and poping the clutch where the pressure plate and flywheel slams together which puts a lot of stress on the clutch assembly and drivtrain

Easing off of the clutch pedal actually creates the condition where constant clutch plate slipping causes glazing of the Pressure plate and flywheel.
