Video showing what no front swaybar does to my focus

My friend sent me this streetfire link from our first Eastlake run. I am driving and sliding my silver ZX3. Hey tiresmoker my car is all fixed from Lordstown and then some. For all you autox people this is not the fastest way around I know...it turns out I missed the fact that one of my endlinks on my front swaybar had broken from the bottom ball socket and was just hangin rubbing on the halfshaft. A little too much rotation with the Scandinavian flick...was fun anyway.

"your in the video bout 2/3 in. You and your drifting lol, check it out."

Yea thanks for the help Devon. I had 3 bad ground wires under the hood. Well two were totally broken the most important one from engine to frame which cracked off along with an aftermarket headlight ground wire. The last other bad looking ground was from some harness bundle which was really corroded and hanging by a thread.
After I went and watched my bro at Mid Ohio all weekend it inspired me to finally pound off my crappy old cross drilled rusty garbage rotors. lol well they have been on for 4 years. I put on OEM Brembo and PF Carbon Metalics which does the job really good and the price is perfect. Thats when I found the broken endlink btw. I want to get the car tuned up for a track days event so I pass tech with no issues.
I ran the car without the chip for the 1st time in years and wow does it LAG A$$ without it. I put that right back in and taped it in nice. Anyone know why the car feels like its holding back at WOT without the chip? Must be the timing fuel air thing in the ECU for economy. I like max WOT at my disposal since it's not much to begin with.

Whats up tiresmoker! Yea, I'm signed up and paid for to run the airport! Good job pushing the car. Thanks again for the help. Just wish such a simple fix was a little more obvious...at least the tow was covered. lol Yea you know I still can't get the AutoXray 6000 to read my ECU. All I care though is it runs and runs well.

I always think the worse, but it was weird the X-Cal 2 wouldn't talk to the ECU. Glad that the beast is runnin again.
