Videos of the first autox in the Focus

I just thought that I would share some of these with you guys. The car's my new 03 SVT, bone stock, running on a brand new set of Falken Azenis RT615's.

Video 1 - incar - first run ever in the new SVT
Video 2 - incar - ex-SVT owner riding shotgun, second run of the day
Video 3 - incar - forth run of the day
Video 4 - incar, panned left - first run of the afternoon session
Video 5 - roof cam - second run of the afternoon session
Video 6 - incar - third run of PM session, fastest official run of the day

The last run of the day was my fastest scratch time at about 2/10's of a second quicker than video 6, but I gave a cone a love tap as I went by it. I forgot to turn off the videos a couple times after the runs, so they might carry on alittle longer than they were supposed to. Overall I thought the car was extremely well balanced. It didn't feel like it had much body roll (but that just might be my opinion coming off racing a truck) and could really use the advantage of stickier tires (A6's are in the plans). My biggest complaint, though is simply the lack of torque and traction. I guess I'm just way too used to running an AWD turbo V-6 in my Syclone days.
