The Forum Wars TV show puts different forums and different cars head to head in an all out tire smoking speed contest. The show will begin to air segments on Speed TV April 5th with full episodes on-line. The first episode of the show features Stangnet.com against My350Z.com. Rob Krider, who writes the Racer Boy column at Speed:Sport:Life represented Stangnet in a 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT. The Shelby was outfitted with Hoosier Tires, Carbotech Brake Pads and I/O Port Racing Supplies harnesses.

Rob is no stranger to racing or Mustangs. He previously owned an ex-CHP 1992 Mustang 5.0 LX notchback Police Interceptor which he drag raced religiously. Then he owned a 2001 Bullitt Mustang which he won rookie of the year honors at the Silver State Classic Open Road Race in Las Vegas. He also autocrossed his Bullitt at the National level and was known for drifting the Stang at SCCA events.

Rob said he has always relied on Stangnet for set-up and technical advice on all of his Mustangs. For The Forum Wars, Rob drove his friend Steve Kuhtz’s 2008 Shelby which they set up and raced in the SCCA together.

Check out the trailer below and check to see on April 5th who wins the match up. Mustang or Z?

Big Sausage Pizza Delivery in a red Genesis?

Matt Farah sports a genuine Krider Racing/Big Sausage Pizza Delivery 24 Hours of LeMons team t-shirt in his newest episode of The Smoking Tire. He is the first person to wear a LeMons t-shirt and a Rolex watch at the same time. He’s also the only person to wear a Big Sausage Pizza Delivery shirt to a wine tasting in Santa Barbara. The episode is very entertaining mostly due to Matt’s impromptu sidekick, a French cook named Andre.

Krider Racing/Big Sausage Pizza (and rolls) Delivery 1991 Acura Integra is getting lighter everytime we race it. The Pizza (and rolls) part comes from Randy Krider’s epic last lap roll-over at LeMons Buttonwillow in 2009. This race we kept the shiny side up, although we knocked the front of the car clean off, won our class and finished second overall out of 148 cars thanks to a fantastic crew and some excellent sponsor help.
