    How about you kiss my crusty brown eye.

    I did read the whole thread and no answer to if the oil had been changed or how much hp had been recoverd. But I guess YOU would know that if YOU would have read the whole thread.

    hmm . . . . my Volvo didn't loose 1 pony :D . . . . in 1'000'000km (or 621'371miles) still 271hp, like the one with 0km . . .:sly:
    i was able to drop it to 241hp . . . . :lol: but nothing what a good oil change couldn't fix . . .

    edit: maybe there are not enough hp to loose any of em . . . :D

    hey DG, I seen this on ForzaCentral, and I had to check this out, lol. I am suprised it didn't just stop driving in the middle of a race telling you to change the oil. Did you ever try running low on gas? that may damage the engine less when that happens (just an idea :idea: ). keep it goin' DG

    Ford is only first on race day because they were ****** on the last week, so they left early, and got to the next track first!

    Whell,after that FORD spelling,i`m gonna tell you what Golf (Volkswagen) means on Croatian
    "Govno Omotano Limenom Folijom"

    That means:piece of S**T wraped with aluminum foil!

    Or AUDI

    Croatian:Ako Upali Dobro Ide

    That means:If engine start,the car runs good :)

    Just a little reminder,sorry for OT!

    Don't forget the Ford Pinto:
    Put
    In
    Nickel
    To
    Operate

    BTW:

    I've got that new Cadillac that cjrciadt has for an Avatar running as we speak, and last I checked it was up over 10k miles, currently doing laps around the test track at an average speed of 235MPh. It already had 7k on it from a while ago when I wanted to see what kind of damage running it on no gas or pit stops for an entire endurance race. I can't recall what happened, it's been months since, but i remember the b-spec driver wanting to pit, so i'd hit the pit-stop button to switch the pit stop off. It ran and ran without gas as far as I remember. The worn out tires played hell on him trying to take corners though!
    But, yeah, the last i checked, like I said, it was at just over 10k, and that was a few hours ago... roughly 10 miles a minute, at 3x speed of course... that'sa lotta miles.
    Going for the Million Mile Mark.

    This all reminds me of when I used to use the strategically placed rubber bands on the controller to let the Escudo Pike's Peek edition do a few laps around the big, lop-sided oval track in the GT3 endurance race win cash for me while I went to McDonalds.

    Seeing as we're going on about manufacturer name abuse, I'll submit...
    Fix
    It
    Again
    Tomorrow

    BM-Trouble-You

    and... Yugo. It's an intention, not a guarantee :lol:

    Back on-topic, this is an interesting experiment. Well done.

    GT4 really does show age and mileage. If you did a body replenish it should return it to factory looks.

    Cheers

    OT:Fiat`s are good cars to have in Croatia and neighbour states,the cars are cheap,the parts too.Lots of modified engine parts to buy,when you go to Italy.Ps,Yugo Koral with Fiat 1500ccm engine is miracle,offcourse,the car must be lowered and stiffened,engine with a few mods got 100+hp to play with,and the car is very light.Ps,when you crash it,you can ie. buy a new headlight for 50kn(7€ :) )

    Interesting project. It's funny how the car colour actually goes dull the more mileage it has on it (the more it's been run). Looking forward to your next results.

    On a sidenote, I'm fortunate enough to have seen one of these beauties (F150 SVT Lightning) on the road myself. It was riding by me on the city highway when I was driving home from school one day. It was a red colour one. The ride height on the Lightning is much lower than a regular truck. Anyway, as soon as teh car in front of it moved (he was on left lane next to me), the engine on the thing just SCREAMED and he just faded into the distance.. :drool:

    On my way home from work I was at a stop light and I was surprised to see a Ford lightning pulled right up next to me. It had side exhaust facing me but I was surprised how quite it was. He got on it a little as he was driving away. After I saw his truck I thought of this thread. His truck was black too.
    DG your truck almost looks like primer. Kinda like when we used make primer hybrids in GT3.
