I'm thinking the SVT group made the lightning able to handle more top speed then the production base model.

I did not see the police report, I was not at the accident scene, I did not know the parties involved. But I have good reason to suspect they were liquored up, rumor has it the parents would like to sue a local establishment for serving them.

huh?

How does my non running turbocharged xj deal with someone putting an edge controller in a new f-150?

Ok, I just clicked on the threads. A quick FYI, the car I was popped in retails your new car x2.7, and no speed governor. .

That was not my non running xj

If you have to somehow bring money into the discussion to make yourself feel better, go right ahead. I can do that easily enough, also.

I don't care what the car (that you don't own) cost someone else. What the vehicles cost that I own (or the cost of any vehicle in this thread for that matter), is of no concern to anyone and completely meaningless to the topic at hand. I also don't care what the cars cost that you own either, which is why I never asked you what you paid for your used WJ when I came to collect the money you owed me for 4 weeks. You remember that one, right? The axle you never asked me if I would even pick up, transport, or front you money for before you told Dumperdave to go ahead and drive over an hour with it to where I was meeting him for a completely unrelated deal? The one you didn't even call me to offer payment for after 4 weeks? The one I had to stop by unannounced to collect for?

My point (that you missed) is that you are degrading someone publically for speeding in a vehicle that is allegedly not designed to perform as such for a variety of different reasons, to include it being equipped with a speed limiter. However, you yourself own an old XJ with a unibody that was never designed to handle the forces exerted on it by the GNX motor its equipped with (especially over time considering metal fatigue factors), and not equipped with hardware (appropriately rated tires, brakes, etc) to handle the speeds it can reach. Furthermore, I distinctly recall threads where you made posts bragging about how fast it was it after you first got it - when it was still running. The fact that it does not currently run does not help you.

Not only are you slamming on someone who wishes to make a modification to a vehicle will allow it to perform beyond the manufacturer's intent (WTF? That's exactly what most of us do to our wheeling rigs) when you yourself own more than one that is far past stock, but you're also ripping on speeding in a vehicle that was not intended to attain such velocities. Just how fast do you think your XJ was intended to travel with its original equipment GM 2.8 V6?

i mean speed is one of the things that i like about it but it also has settings for towing plus it improves gas mileage and it gives you more horsepower and it tunes down the traction control

Go ahead and put it in. I would. We are just trying to help you realize that public roads are no place to take it to those speeds. There are too many consequences.

On another note, someone above sounds pissed!

lol, you vanished for longer then 4 weeks, and I forgot about the axle. A simple phone call and I could have met ya After all, the axle was 50 bucks. And if you check your pm's and emails, I'm sure you will find that I tried to contact you more then once over that time period, and you could have at least responded.

My point (that you missed) is that you are degrading someone publically for speeding in a vehicle that is allegedly not designed to perform as such for a variety of different reasons, to include it being equipped with a speed limiter.

lols. My xj never went over 60mph. It did however hit 60 really fast

:tonka: I think you're missing some information there. If you would have looked under the vehicle, you would have noticed its not a stock drivetrain with a turbo engine tossed in there.

I never at any time said you were in your XJ. I said this reminded me of it for the reasons I have already stated.

You never contacted me regarding that axle by phone, PM, email, or in person. The dollar amount is irrelevant, but I'm not surprised you are focusing on that given your current fixation on money. Keeping you informed of my whereabouts or activities is not a requirement. As people posted looking for/asking about me, you repeatedly stated that you didn't care. In fact, you didn't care so much that you even felt obligated to create a Sightings thread simply because I posted recently in the Harley thread.

I'm not missing any information. I think you forgot that I've seen the drivetrain in person. You and I discussed axle options for that vehicle when you were talking about drag racing Jesus since the stock axles and brakes that are under it wouldn't survive something like that if the motor was straightened out.

You're the pot and VWBoy is the kettle.
