Last couple months I purchased a 13' RR Boss 302, very clean car 4k miles one owner, no accidents no claims, never tracked - the original owner had never even done a burnout in the car. I was sold the car as track key enabled, when I picked up the car turns out it wasn't installed. Long story short, the dealer went good for it and ordered the track key install/kit. Just finished the flash today and what a difference! The throttle is much crisper, haven't noticed a huge difference in engine braking yet, but I do have to say with the baffles out the lopey idle sounds great. I love the slight shake to the car reminiscent of the old muscle cars. I have an auto cross race this weekend so I can't wait to see how it performs!

 

Anyways thought I'd pass it on, that you can still get the keys, they now come with a K&N Filter and Ford Pro call tool - pretty slick process. Hats off to ford racing for how they do the whole program. Now I've got a code reader, not to mention if I change tire heights I can re program the speedo myself. Pretty cool!

 

Cheers

Tom

Glad you like it! It is a pretty cool OEM feature having two keys. I pretty much threw away the silver key after getting TK. It was kind of disappointment losing some TK features when I switched to an aftermarket tune, most of which was launch control. Lopey idle is still my favorite part of the car!

Enjoy!

Totally agree.....the silver key is a waste of time on these cars. And also concur...the lopey idle is the utmost coolest feature on these cars!!

Thanks guys! I agree the lopey idle and the way the car shakes make it feel like a true muscle car. Not going to test out the launch control until after this weekend's auto cross hahah. All I know is that when i've hit the car does get a lot of wheel hop and I would imagine a launch with the LC on would only make that worse

I had wheel hop the second I rolled off the lot and smashed on it. That's why my first mod were lower control arm relocation brackets; instant fix and super cheap. Lol

Good deal for you and Kudos to your Ford dealer for hooking you up. I AutoX and HPDE my '12 and love TracKey and have no need or plans to aftermarket tune it. I love her just the way she is. I did do a bunch of BMR suspension mods and viola... no wheel hop! Good luck with your upcoming AutoX and share a few pictures at your outing if you can.

You are fortunate to find an Autocross at this time of the year. Nothing here till April.

Let us know how you do, pics?

I run SCCA SOLOs in Detroit & Toledo, about 10 a year with the Red Key.

Have suspension mods, nothing to the motor.

Went to 295 - 265 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2's last season, much better than the original Pirelli's.

I will definitely share some pics and a post on the day! I've done 3 of them now and am completely hooked. This is the reason I bought this car. I'm running it in class FS so I can't do any mods other than 200 treadwear tires, brake pads that kind of stuff. I'm currently running BFGoodrich G Force Comp 2 all seasons, wow do they work well in the rain!! last event lots of guys were spinning out, but with all my traction aids off I pushed the car real hard and no spins, no cones. I've got a set of the rival s tires on order so can't wait to try that out when it dries out.

 

Here's a dumb question for you guys, when using launch control I would imagine I turn all the traction control/sport trac stuff off?

 

Thanks!

Tom

I turn off everything when using launch control as well as autocrosss.

I also run FS having only suspension changes & the upsized tires, which are Class legal.

As I said in the other thread, you will like the Rival's.

I previously ran Hoosier slicks on the Vette & the Rivals are every bit as good.

The series I run is called Slush series, basically a series that takes place in the off season and still allows guys to get out and run. Apparently they run in snow (to a certain extent) Looking like this weekend is going to be somewhat dry so should be good. I'll try to upload some go pro footage if possible. Here's some pics from the last event a few weeks back. My good buddy does all the photo's and he's amazing behind the lens!

Notice you have driving lights installed, me too.

Also, where Fog Lights are on GT's I have the screens with perforations to help cool  the  brakes.

Have fun racing & keep in touch.

Been some time since I've posted, but with 4 other cars and a couple of bikes I've been a bit distracted.  I took the Boss out for a drive today.  2012 owned since new.  I've noticed that many people complained that the lopey idle was too subdued with trackey.  I'll say this: my car doesn't have a lot of mods, but it does have corsa mufflers and kooks shorty headers (selected so that I could keep trackey) and the lopey idle is very noticeable.  After adding the headers it barks and pops and snaps a lot more than it did before the headers.

 

I'd like to add a mid pipe and maybe over axle pipe to finish things off with the exhaust, but other projects are taking precedent for now.  If I do any further upgrades will let you know how trackey responds, but I'm very careful what upgrades to choose as trackey is very clearly sensitive to certain modifications.
