    Hey Guys, I found an awesome new feature, quite by accident yesterday!! There's a pedal under the drivers side dash to the right side of the footwell. I have found if you first switch off the TC via the toggle in the center stack then mash down on the pedal, wonderful things happen; 1) the sound is like an Italian symphony, 2) the rear wheels will spin like crazy and, 3) the car will drive sideways...and get this, shift into 2nd gear and it will do it all over again

    Seriously, this thread is both informative and funny, good start Racer172 and Galaxy!!

    sounds like you are talking about turning TC completely off. I watched a video on this and just turning to off in the app is not enough, you have to hold down one of the buttons for like 5 sec and then it completely turns TC off. Don't think you need to crawl under the floorboard though.

    This compartment is designed to fit the owners manual perfectly so you can actually put things in your glove box like... I dunno, gloves?

    GT350 OEM Alloy Wheels... Stamped FoMoCo but also Made in China

    Most folks know the GT350R Carbon Fiber Wheels come from supplier Carbon Revolution in Australia...

    But have you looked at the inside/backside of your black OEM GT350 alloy wheels? They of course have the expected FoMoCo, DOT, wheel dimensions, and other annotations, but they also say... "Made in China..."

    Domestic/North American sourced parts content has been dropping in Fords. The last fleet average I could find was 65% back in a 2011 MOTORTREND article. In 2015 MOTORTREND again featured a top 15 vehicles (USA/North American parts content) article and Ford didn't make that list. Also a 2015 Fortune article noted both Ford and Chrysler's absence from the top the list.

    The good news is Mustang is the highest selling sport coupe globally "125,809 Mustang coupes and convertibles were sold last year, across 146 different countries." More than Camaro, or the Mopar offerings - more than a third of Mustang sales in 2017 were overseas.

    Google "The big Ford Mustang global risk paid off" for Slash Gear's April 2018 article at this link https://www.slashgear.com/the-big-fo...-off-17527667/ .

    Nice read thanks for the link!! Happy to see the Mustang being readily received outside of the USA...an iconic legend for sure - thank you Lee Iacocca!

    HotLap: The other bit on Mustang news is they are bringing its marketing image back to NASCAR replacing the Fusion (though in reality it's only a grill shape, since the rest of the NASCAR vehicles/engines are spec'ed out...

    I just read that yesterday! I have heard rumors that Ford might be discontinuing the Fusion, hard to believe as it is a good seller for them...if so will be interested to see what they replace it with?

    Just checked out your signature line, please post pics of your vintage Stangs (if you still have them)?

    yeah how do you get the key out of the key fob? I've been able to open up the key fob but I don't see how to slide the key out of it.

    I accidentally pushed the headrest forward instead of up, and found out it is adjustable forward and back! I can move them forward until it stops and it will go all the way back to normal. Nice! Maybe just news to me! haha!
