The rain forecast means I'm just going to bring my car instead of the kart this weekend. Oh well. I've got an open diff right now, so I will run FSP on A6 if it is dry, and STF on DW (on my new wheels!) if it is wet.

I've taken advantage of the STF index as well a couple of times on those wet days.

A few pics from my first event in my STF Focus




It was damp to a steady rain for most of the event but still had a blast. Finished 2nd in PAX (out of 47). Stock shocks/springs, big Steeda Rear bar, 17x7.5 wheels with 215/40/17 Star Specs. Car needs springs, shocks and camber REALLY bad.

I goofed up my video camera and didn't get ANY incar footage.

very cool pictures! Nice results as well.
Have you thought about running RS3's? I think those would fare better in STF.

Nice. I ran the Focus in STF in the rain on my daily-driver Conti DW's, and got 3rd/44 PAX on Sep 2nd at a CCSCC event

Probably would be better but I wanted a tire that was not great at anything but good at everything.

If I decide to get a bit more serious next year, i'll get a pair of 15" wheels and the 225 Kooks for the front. The SVT could certainly use a bit more gearing.

Here's from an autocross last month



Well, photobucket is not cooperating so, maybe it'll show up embedded and maybe it won't. Here's the link if it doesn't

I like the StarSpecs, but IMO they are terrible in the rain/cold weather.. it seems to me they turn into bricks when it's cold. I think 15's would be ideal for the SVT, good choice.
