I was just very lucky...

My wife teaches kindergarten in a VERY wealthy district.

One of the parents came in to help the class and noticed a picture of me on track and asked my wife about it.

He INSISTED that I come out to play. He even picked up the tab for track time. I protested ( I Really did ) and he wouldn't take no for an answer.

So, I drove and instructed 2 students - 550 Maranello and an older 512 TR. Great fun.

However, I refuse to drive other people's cars.

This past Friday, an instructor *ahem*...long story, balled up a $400K Lambo into a tire wall.

The car was COMPLETELY destroyed and hit the tire wall so hard that you could see tires flying over the tree line.

Then, today at a Cadillac event, an instuctor friend of mine lost it in turn 9 and went so far into the trees that you couldn't even see the car from the track.

Destroyed a BRAND NEW Corvette Z06 to the point where you couldn't even recognize what kind of car it was. He was transported to the local hospital with 4 broken ribs and internal bruising.

So, there is a downside to this hobby...

Wee,
Except for tires, is your Focus all stock?

Wow, you are so lucky to have this opportunity. I was also wondering if your car has any work into it.

Car is COMPLETELY stock.

69K on the odometer.

I run Centric rotors with Hawk HPS pads and Race Blue fluid.

The tires on the other hand....

Hoosier Cup tires. 225/40ZR17 The same tire used in the Koni Challenge.

IF there are any doubters as to if the car is stock, you'll see the car at FocusFest.

However, the little SVT is sick. Down on power after the last run and I need to do a complete brake overhaul.

I think I am losing compression in one of the cylinders causing excessive oil blow-by through the intake.

I'll find out more in the next 2 weeks as I make time to get into the problem...

You sir are our todays envy LOL. Really that must have been a blast to join them on the track. On another note, I once owned a 308 GTO and it still hasen't been surpassed as the biggest POS I ever had. The firewall rusted just by looking at it and it gobbled oil by the liter. It didn't even hold the road properly, hence a buddy of mine almost got killed after the car spun out in some light rain. Car was totaled but buddy was ok though.
None the less, I wished I could have been there in person, it looked like a bunch of fun.
Thnxs for sharing the vids and be safe.

Why would anyone own a challenge car without knowing how to drive it? He didn't give you _any_ trouble.
