Certain modifications are worth the risk. An FIA cage with proof of compliance is one thing that comes to mind. That can be pricey and time-consuming to accomplish on your own.

It is unsafe, and I don't feel right doing it.

This is pretty simple. Regardless of what the posted speed limit is, if you aren't passing anyone, move over to the right. Traffic could be (and routinely is) moving at 15 over the posted speed limit. In this scenario, traveling 5 MPH over the posted limit in the left lane is inappropriate. Move over. The left lane is not a place to hang out and contemplate life. It is the passing lane. Also, if you forget the rules, and someone flashes their lights at you to remind you of said rules, then remember them quickly and move over. Finally, even if you find yourself in a caravan of a-holes going too slowly in the left lane, do not try and use the strength in numbers approach to do your thing. Move over.

I also believe that there is a rarely enforced law on the books in FL that can result in a ticket for the aforementioned behavior. This is a promise: I will start writing donation checks to the sheriff's association if they begin enforcing this law. I want to see results, though. We are spending billions of dollars on a new roadway network in Orlando, and drivers are meanwhile migrating further and further away from exhibiting proper etiquette. Makes no sense.
Yeah, but I read this long one too.

Time to share a cynical idea! I believe that it should be illegal for certain cars to be allowed in the fast lane due to unsafe and insufficient overall power output. (i.e. Leaf, Prius, Sentra, Elantra, Versa, Yaris) XD. Also if someone has a very ugly car, like the Chrysler PT cruiser, they should get tax cuts for NOT driving it as much as possible.

Hello all. For all of you who dont know me, I am Sean but you can call me whatever you would like. I have a horrible job and work for horrible people but at least it pays the bills for all my bad habits. I have a wife, crazy kid and 2 dogs that want to kill each other. I also live in the ghetto and hear gun shots at night. I am the owner of a 06 Evo and it gets terrible gas mileage. I also have my own racecar that I built and never drive cause something always seems to break. I like to start every sentence with "I" cause why not. I didnt finish college so at least I have that excuse going for me. I am probably missing something but whatever. I will be here posting useless info in this useless thread if that is ok with everyone and if its not, I am fine with that.

It occurred to me that there are no females that post in here, other than Coco and perhaps Don. Pretty sure I played a part in that, and for that I am sorry.

Legends come pretty much set up, with just upgrading to steel tank for road racing and a few other odds needed.


Welp, just got an email from the Ford dealer. My GT350 should arrive Friday. He never responded when I asked a few weeks ago if he'd got an estimated build date. Now I have to figure out how to make room for it and to get my truck sold in 2 days. Funny, I was thinking about emailing him today to cancel the order since I'm getting the Legend.

You should have warned us. I could have arranged something to get you a nice, fat fine.

Nah, no need. They will find something. They always do. Today they were more concerned about what we put on the dyno more then anything.

How big are the fines? Would it be cheaper to bribe them?

Up to $4527 per vehicle. The 2 guys that came in today were the same ones that came here in 07 and fined a group of engine builders and off road car manufactures $1.2 mil, us included. Pretty sure they got a nice bonus from that one.
