Looks just like mine - Red Stripe Edition

The power is just crazy though.

I don't think the shot of Nitrous is reflective of the real power it produces, would like to see numbers before and after a shot of the funny gas.

I would also be a bit concerned about the longevity of any engine producing that kind of power.

Any more details would be nice.

Yea, like beside the Drugs what else does it have on it.

You got to hand it to whoever owns the car, a VERT with that kind of HP is Crazy Sic. I'm looking for the same thing without the Stupid Gas!!

Sounds like they are doing some factory striping on some verts now. A new option.

It must be on the 08's. I think the Vert's look sweet with the full stripe kit on them. I know it wasn't an option in 07!

I just looked at my 08 FORD brochure(spelling) and you still can't get red stripes...... So the fact of the matter is he has a bad ass car with red stripes!

He could have bought the Stripe kit and had them put on. It's still a Wild Ride!!

I like the way the stripe flows on the window frame. Definitely a sweet ride.

It may look nice but that is just NUTS to have that kind of power. And like what has been said "How long will it last??" M'nut

Real question is how does he get it to hook up. Heck we all know with just the stock HP its not easy to hook. I use Nitto drag radials and am looking for even a beefier drag radial than this in a 18" ...

Looks like it is a vert, wonder how the tork does on that body with out damage:eek:


I actually wrote the guy ... and he had commented that he did have a valve job done on the car to get the head to flow better. I did ask if had had any other work to beef the car up but he didnt comment on that aspect.

I believe these cars are relatively safe in the mid 650rwhp range. You need to get a 1 piece drive shaft and maybe a better differential dependent on your driving style. But the motor should be fine at those levels. I m hopping to go to the TVS blower and end up around the 650rwhp .... but only if i can find a tire and wheel combo that will give me better traction
