mudding with a mercury tracer
Wendell's 1993 mercury tracer annoying windshield wipers, bad transmission,
very bad misfire.
Battle of the Beaters
Two guys take two scrap cars to the dragstrip on a regular points weekend
to have some fun. The featured car is a '91 Ford Escort that was bought
for $175 from an old lady. This car needed way too much work and was too
much of a piece of crap to be driven on the street. We figured we'd take
it out in style. The other car featured for a few seconds was a Mercury
Tracer. Both cars ran high 18 second ET's. The Escort was crushed after a
blown up transmission and the Tracer blew either a coolant hose or a head
gasket right before third round of eliminations. And yes it was well worth

We take a 1991 Mercury Tracer purchased for 50 dollars and gut it.
1997 Mercury Tracer Wagon 0-60mph
So I got a lot of flack for not launching properly in my last vid. Here
you go kids, a proper launch according to your standards. It did help
improve 0-60 time, reducing it from 11.6 to 10 sec. I installed a K&N air
filter, so that probably helped a little too.
