    FS: For Fiesta ST. 17x7 +42 Sparco Assetto Gara wheels, satin black. 215/40/17 Dunlop ZII Star Spec tires. Hub centric aluminum rings included. These are my track wheels and only used on track and driving to/from. Two track events on them and under 800 miles total. Basically 98% new. 100% A+ condition. Payed $1,300 from Tire Rack. Will let go for $975. Great deal for somebody. Only reason I am selling is I will no longer be tracking my Fiesta. Picked up in Bay Area, CA.

    New photos!

    Those are nice wheels and great tires.. Do you recall the wheel/tire weight off hand and GLWS aluminum hub rings rock too btw no melting that way..

    I have these same wheels in a 15''. Great stuff. Good luck. Why aren't you going to track your car from here out though?

    I'm putting it mostly back to stock and just driving it until the lease is over and I'll turn it back in. The Fiesta forums bummed me out and basically made me not interested in the car anymore other then daily driving it.

    I'm also prepping my Evo 10 for track use so it makes no sense to track the Fiesta anymore.

    That's a shame. You shouldn't let your experience on one forum color your experience with the car. :/ But, to each their own, I guess.

    I'm sure you have your reasons and you're going to do what you're going to do, but I have to agree with many who feel you shouldn't let some bad experiences affect you or taint your FiST ownership experience or participation on the forums. In fact I am surprised that you would be affected. You brought things to light and questioned things that really needed to be and backed up your position with hard facts and data.

    There may not be a lot of interactions on the forums from members, but I'm sure there are a lot of members who read and appreciate you and your contributions to share your experiences and knowledge, I know I do. I picked up and AIRTEC intercooler do to the solid data you provided and I have ordered parts for the Ethanol Hardware Kit you clearly laid out freely for other enthusiasts. Once all of the parts come in I plan on putting it together and hope you're still around if I need help or have questions.

    I have yet to come across any negative post about you and if they're out there... there are way more positive ones that exist. There are a number posts from well respected vendors such as COBB, Panda, Edge Autosport and Dead Hook giving you props. Forget those that don't matter, you have been a valuable asset to the FiST community and I hope you will reconsider your position and change your mind.

    Agreed. The community is only as good as people make it, and dropping out is a loss to all of us.

    This. I don't even have a FiST, but I've found value in Mr. Lab's contribution to this community. This community needs people that have experience in all things modification, it's what builds the grassroots.

    After all that sharing I got banned and all my threads deleted. I don't have the time or energy for those types of outcomes.

    I'd rather spend that time with my partner or working on the next project.

    That is a perfectly justified position to take considering what happened. Good luck with the sale, and I wish you well on whatever path you take from here.

    I get it. I was pissed that they removed the threads and post of others who commented as well. Banning is one thing, but to completely remove the threads and posts from public view was wrong. People can see what's going on and can make up their own minds, but to completely remove post suggests that they're trying to hide something. I think the posts are all still there just hidden from the general public view. Anyhow I get your frustration and disappointment.

    I think the Forum software hides all posts in the case . I do not think they were deleted just hidden, but i could be wrong on that as I am not a Vbul code guru of forum software..

    From my perspective... the right thing to do is re-activate his account and bring back the threads and posts that were removed.

    I noticed they don't have mountune as a vendor on that site. I don't know why that is, but I bet they do.
    You might think that it's overpriced, but you can't call it junk. I still think their CAI is the best out there. It really is a CAI.

    Your only sin was asking for proof of claims. That's not a sin.

    But then, for me to prove that the mountune CAI is the best, I'd have to run every CAI available on the same car on the same dyno, and compare them all, and nobody's going to do that.

    They may have limited resources (they being Mountune and resouces being time) though I am not sure what site you are exactly talking about..
