    Man! I love my Raptor!!!!!

    After a good night sleep I realized that I owe all Gen 2 Raptor owners an apology. When the Gen 1 first came out I was really pumped, finally a production vehicle that represented our exclusive community and a with a 4wd that made it functional for prerunning and chasing. When I heard the Gen 2...

    Trying hard is what you should do and start a new thread about Gen 2's, remember this all started with the love for Gen 1.

    Man! I love my Raptor!!!!!

    Was just responding to the use of IIHS on a previous post. "Blown vs bottle fed" haven't heard that one in years.. Love it!! Some of us don't sell our big block muscle cars when a civic with twin turbos drags our butt

    Man! I love my Raptor!!!!!

    hijack a Raptor thread with pics from my worn out GMC would be unfair to the Ford community, instead I'd like to know when did you cruise over to my house and open my hood to see what's under it? Take turbos off that little low compression 3.5 and I'll side swipe that aluminum Ford and peel it...

    Man! I love my Raptor!!!!!

    Too bad Ford built its off-road “BEAST” with a 6 banger and had to hang 2 turbos on it to make power. Add a ridiculous 10speed automatic transmission (what’s next a Japanese CVT?) and then rap it in a fragile aluminum body. Make the regular F150 the fuel miser and let the crew at SVT build some...

    Ford Raptor engine sound???

    Okay...here we go. I love Ford Raptors, make no mistakes about that.. I have ever since they came out. There is something that I can’t stop laughing about. They sound (especially with aftermarket exhaust) like my old Buick Grand National !!! I get that they make more power than the old big heavy...

    Trick/trophy truck 4wd ?

    So what's the verdict on course wear and tear? 2wd or 4wd? Seems obvious but a few of u guys are saying 4 tires throwing dirt around is actually better for course deterioration. Again, KOH and desert racing are 2 different animals. KOH cars have raced BITD, will Geiser put 42" beadlocks and gear...

    Trick/trophy truck 4wd ?

    Been a fan of desert racing since the early 90's. Growing up it was all about Ford I-beams and VW based beam cars. 4wd was only for towing and recovery (occasional mud bogging). I can remember a handful of 4wd attempts (herbst trophy, riviera buggy come to mind) yet they didn't catch on. Should...

    Will the new wall change off road racing below the border ?

    there would be no illegal immigrants crossing the border if it wasn't for the American citizen hiring them trying to save on paying workers comp insurance. Same goes for smuggling drugs. Lets concentrate on the American citizens who are injecting and smoking the poison. Simple supply and demand...

    **VIDEO** MINT 400 Rockstar Energy #90 360Fly

    Thanks for sharing this video. I love that Ford released a production F150 gasser that allows you to run those turbos. I can't get enough of the those turbos putting in work!
