TRACK: NEW VIDEO - COBRA Hunting and better resolution
 
ENJOY !!

This is from the SVTOA event earlier this year.

If anyone doubts that tires make a difference...

I am running Hoosier Grand Am Cup tires.

Cobras don't like the sharp corners...

One correction. The event took place in March. SCCA PDX was in May. Got my dates screwed up...[shhh]

Nice video. Looks like a fun course. Especially the little embankment/cement turn.

Werd on the tire tip. While at the svtoa event in michigan another focus owner had Hankook Ventis r-compound tires (I believe) and I couldn't keep up with him at all on street tires.

And nothing like getting the pass signal from a Cobra.

ok i have one quastion....will my sedan handle as good as this fairly stock SVTF.....?
im running KW springs 1.6", KYB AGX strut/shocks,front strut bar, tranny moutn

my tires are crap....but what im saying is if i get better tires would this be a good car for lapping?
im also looking into getting sway bars

Get a big rear sway bar and a good alignment. Negative camber in the front helps too. Any focus with a stick is good for lapping.

Yep. Very capable cars out of the box.
