is you car only for autocross ??
Nope. DD to get back and forth to work.
My Bronco was killing me in gas.

Since the wife suggested getting a new car,
I naturally veered towards something I could AutoCross.
And, since I wear "blue ovals" on my underwear, I immediately had to check out the SVTF.

Something I didn't mention earlier, because I was afraid my head wouldn't fit in my helmet anymore.
There were a couple conversations I walked up on, just folks talking about the runs and various cars and such.
Both times, someone was talking about the "shocker" of the event.
Some guy in a blue Focus was wicked quick!
They couldn't believe how fast the car was.
So, I just stepped in with my most humble voice, and said, "oh, that'd be me".
They also couldn't believe I just drove it off the showroom floor 2,100 miles ago.
"No way!" "That's all stock?!" "You're kidding me?!" "Really? A Focus?!"

Believe me, if it was dry, I'm certain there would have been a different outcome.
It just happened that the conditions were perfect for my car and driving style I guess.
The guys in the Vettes were really PO'd!
