The grind isn't caused by the transmission. It is caused by the misalignment of the motor, transmission, and body under high torque.

I agree, however, that the 13/14 Mustang taillights look sweet.
Missed this post but I'm definitely on the fence. I like the color HUD and DIC options as well as the mail slot delete and new hood and hopefully mylink 2.0.

The Mustangs look ok but it kills me that a 420hp car comes with 245 wide tires and 8.5" wheels, plus the Nav option is ridiculously overpriced. Their justification is dual zone climate control is part of the package.

I have the AY6 tranny... piece of crap "economy" sized tranny. 2nd gear is a common problem.. I don't see it as a misalignment issue. Have yet to hear that diagnosis. Its the only gear that does it.. and it has happened under all load conditions.

I can't say I'd pick a car solely on the tire size? You can swap wheels if need be. Heck, Jay switches them on a monthly basis haha

As for the Nav being overpriced? I don't know, myFord (or whichever iteration you have) is quite more complex than "just a nav" IMO. But I guess it depends on the person...

Oh I know its just a wheel swap, I even own a set that would work, its just the point that I'm paying for a new car and I already have to swap wheels and tires just to hold stock power on the street. Irritating.

Mustangs don't have MyFord or MyFord Touch. The Nav option is 2k and includes Navigation and Dual Zone climate control as the only upgrades over the stock stereo and Sync. Sync versions are the same (actually less progressed in the Nav version in earlier years) between the two.

I really wanna play with a Chevy MyLink system soon and make sure I don't have the "Grass is Greener" syndrome.

Ah yes. Sync

As for mylink, yeah, I want it also. 2SSRS has come up with a retro fit, so I'm rapidly saving for it lol

Its just Nav with Sync.

This Thursday Quaker City is having a Street Car Night. I think I'm going with my old man, going to work on tuning both cars there, throwing some timing at mine and dialing in fuel on his with his new nitrous system.

If you say so. It wasn't so much a challenge of your knowledge as more of a statement that I had not heard that diagnosis.

Regardless of the cause I am more interested in the solution at the moment. I should be able to get more than 12k out of a brand new tranny that is only driven hard at most 20 percent of the time. Before having this kind of issue.

My TR6060 was grinding since day 1 in my GT500. Same issue plagues camaro owners as well.

It's the sloppy body mounted shifter, and soft motor mounts.

I tore the entire transmission apart and replaced everything and it did not solve a thing. I added a better shifter, stiffer motor mounts, and a k member brace with torque limiters, and voila... problem went away.

I'm shocked with the tranny problems, I must have been lucky. In my first week of ownership, 2nd gear grinded once. After that, it never grinded until last fall when the temperature dropped. I figured out that if I let the tranny warm up with some 1->3 shifts, everything is fine.

Update to this...Now its looking like the stars are aligning and I'll have 3 days mandatory off work. I'm hoping to do street car night at quaker thursday, test n tune at quaker friday, and flashlight drags at PIRC (beaverun wampum) saturday. I have a free flashlight drags pass I wanna use that I won in a drawing at the UnitedGearHeads.com christmas party. Just sayin, if anyone is looking for something fun to do this weekend.

If I were you.. I would wait 6 months save more money and get the 2014 Stingray.

I'm getting a bad taste for Quaker again, last night was zero track prep past the 60ft. Most dangerous racing I've ever experienced, I can't believe nobody got hurt. Also, their timing system was down and they waited until everyone was there and paid before they decided to test it.

Anyone going to Starlite tonight? I may go there instead of Quaker TnT, though if I do, it'll be on slicks. Way too lazy to take them off tonight and put them back on for tomorrow's Flashlight Drags.

Quaker sadly has always been "not that great", that why they lost the Division 3 pts race there years ago.

As for Starlite, I wanted to, but I won't be able to pick my car up from the shop until later today, so I don't see any way I'll make it in time.

Which means I'm not going to make it to Starlite

My car is a filthy mess, so I'll spend the evening cleaning it after picking up Brendan's car.

Perhaps we should all try to meet at Pittsburgh Mills Friday the 19th. It's the Tom Henry "pre-show," so I'm sure there will be a lot more cars since there is a large contingent of people coming from out of town. Bring the CS on slicks to scare some people, Al

I actually should be doing the same tonight. Group cleaning?

Weekends aren't good for me. I only have off Thursdays (PRP TnT and Quaker Street Car Night). I'm only off this weekend by law because I worked too much.

I'd be up for that. Especially since you're bailing on us on Saturday

My g/f is holding a car show at robert morris university. The car show is benifiting the local down sydrome association, that is near and dear to both of us. Food,music,and chinese Auctions for donations. The show is free and there will be trophies handed out to a few winners. It sucks it is going to be 90* on sunday but it will be a nice time for a great cause. Very family oriented. Ill have my camaro there also. I believe a friend was going to try to talk the cars n coffee group into coming out also but im not on there site to know.

So, the Pre-THR Show on Friday.....

and the THR show on Saturday....

Do we want to set up any get togethers so we can all ride in together?

I'd be a fan of meeting up in cranberry both days if that works for people? If not, what works best for people?
