Support for Fallen Fellow ST Enthusiast

Jan 17, 2016 - 3:01 PM - by ibom
Hello all,

My name is Chris and I am an admin for the California ST Facebook group. I am here to ask for your support for a fellow ST enthusiast Brandon Tabita.

Unfortunately on the morning of January 15th, it is believed that Brandon fell asleep at the wheel after having worked a mid shift. He rear ended a school bus that thankfully had no children in it. Brandons car went under the rear of the bus and his car sustained unbelievable damage. Brandon also received irreparable trauma to his head and brain. He had to be cut from the car using the jaws of life which took over an hour to get him out. Once out, he was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. The staff at the hospital was outstanding and have done all that they could, but informed his family and friends around 4pm on 16 January that there was nothing further they could do as Brandon is 100% brain dead. His family has been absolutely devastated at the loss of their son. They will be going to the hospital again today on 17 January to make their decision on whether to remove him from life support or not. With a decision like that, money should not be something they have to think or worry about. There will be high medical cost and impending funeral cost.

Please keep his family in your prayers,

Thank you

The EPA Wants to Make Your Race Car Illegal

Feb 09, 2016 - 12:23 PM - by NickJ

There is a proposed regulation put forth by the EPA that would prohibit the conversion of production cars into race cars as well as the sales of equipment to do so. This regulation is conveniently tucked into the seemingly unrelated "Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Engines and Vehicles—Phase 2" regulation.

This means that converting sports cars, sedans, hatches, and pretty much every vehicle that have commonly been used for track-day-only duties would be illegal. Yes, you read that right, it would be illegal. This takes the Clean Air Act to a completely different level. The Clean Air Act puts the kibosh on certain modifications if the driver wants to continue to drive them on the streets, but does not extend to those track day only vehicles.

It is not clear what vehicles would be allowed to be converted to track cars. Perhaps they mean that only special construction cars would be allowed to be used on tracks around the nation. Is the EPA looking to put an end to the race car and track day culture?

How much damage to the environment is a handful of drivers doing on the weekends compared to those that drive 80+ miles during their daily commute?

Check out the stand that SEMA is making in their press release below:

"This proposed regulation represents overreaching by the agency, runs contrary to the law and defies decades of racing activity where EPA has acknowledged and allowed conversion of vehicles," said SEMA President and CEO Chris Kersting. "Congress did not intend the original Clean Air Act to extend to vehicles modified for racing and has re-enforced that intent on more than one occasion."

SEMA submitted comments in opposition to the regulation and met with the EPA to confirm the agency’s intentions. The EPA indicated that the regulation would prohibit conversion of vehicles into racecars and make the sale of certain emissions-related parts for use on converted vehicles illegal.

Want a Ford GT? Better buy a Focus ST...

Feb 02, 2016 - 2:38 PM - by NickJ

According to The Detroit News, Ford is supposedly going to apply a Ferrari-esque vetting process.

With several celebrities and people with all of the money offering blank checks and throwing their weight around, Ford has responded to all of them simply. "Apply online." Which is ballsy.

Being of performance and enthusiast ilk, Ford is making sure that the 250 GT's will go to those that will enjoy their cars for what they are and not just park them in the garage, museum, or try to flip them for big cash. In Feb, when the application process goes live, part of the application will have questions like, "How many Fords have you owned?" "How active are you on social media?" "What is your intended use of the GT?" All of this leads me to believe that Ford is embracing the importance of these cars and leveraging it as well.

If you are not going to post photos of this car and do rad ****, you don't get to own it. I know that most of the internet will say, "Hell yeah, I would hoon the **** out of that thing..." but most of the internet doesn't have a single, thin dime invested into the tires, transmission, body work, etc etc. It is easy to say that you will burn tires off of someone else's car and not your own. I used to do it all the time. Go ripping around in a 1000 hp supercharged Viper and then get in my car and doddle down to get a gallon of milk.

What do you guys think? Seems like Jay Leno will likely be in the mix because he actually drives things. John Hendricks, perhaps not so much.
