Lets Get Serious
As everyone is aware, or should be by now, we have been graced by Happy-Jack or as he is known to his friends, David Flint. This thread I will start in two parts.
Part 1 Mental Picture.
David has no idea of what sort of people we are, nor does he know our background or thoughts. I would like to start by saying, I am a State Manager, with 3 letters after my title, who knows what he wants, and I know how to get it. I am not a rev head that frequents McDonalds doing burnouts over the speed humps, nor do I frequent carparks at night comparing afterburner exhausts off F1 jet fighters hanging out the arse of my car like the rice boy's. I dont have a rear wing on either of my 2 XR8's that is so high it needs a warning light so planes dont crash into it, when approaching Mascot Airport.
My I.Q is such I can hold a conversation with anyone who is intelligent enough to listen and understand and can return the same to me.
David, without being rude to yourself, or your staff and this goes for Geoff as well, if you think this forum is full of looneys, who do what I have stated earlier, then you are sadly mistaken. If you have come here to listen and laugh to the mindless ramblings of idiots you are sadly mistaken. The people on this forum are in my opinion, some of the most intelligent people I have met, when it comes to Ford Products. Each person is different in his own way. Each can contribute in one way or another.
Part 2 What I want.
Like the majority of people, we are dismayed by the fact, that Ford and Tickford are behind the 8 ball instead of being in front. Without getting involved in company propaganda and all, the hype surrounding who is doing who in the closet at smoko. My question is, what can we expect from Ford in the coming months, there are rumours of strokers and 5.4's, 4.6's, and so on.
Are we going to see extra horsepower or are we going to sit behind Holden as usual. I dont expect you to break protocol and spill all, but surely something can be leaked.
having said that I would suggest to everyone on the forum that each one tell the man what we want to see in terms of power and such. Keep the power in reasonable figures as well, no ridiculous claims or 600ci blocks. the ideas must be workable and within what we would expect a budget by Ford would allow. I have chosen this method of communication because the threads are far and few between and for David to scour the lot, would take infinity.
LETS START THE BALL ROLLING. Anyone's thoughts on the stroker being a viable option. I say yes. It can be done. I'll explain in another Box.
