I may try to get an alignment done on my Focus before Danville this weekend.
It is my DD car, so I am trying to decide where to set my Toe front and rear.
I have wondered what zero toe front and rear would behave like?
I run an 1/8" toe out in the front and 0 toe in the rear. The car is still very stable to drive.

If I can convince my wife to let me come this weekend you can see one of my wheel and tire setups.

My Fastest run from yesterday morning. Had more I could have gotten out of it especially in a few spots after watching others run more. By the afternoon runs I was exhausted and decided it would be more fun to throw in rear tire pressure to see if I could get more rotation and ended up just driving terribly and not because of being too loose.

You had me by a tad over 2 seconds. I watched your video and laughed at where I was holding full throttle while you had to modulate the throttle because you actually have some power. I'd guess that your car is a lot more FUN than mine to drive.

The guy that won GS, Patrice, is very fast. He is typically in the top 3 or 4 in PAX. The guy that FTD, Andrew Palotta in his ND Miata is a beast! Several of the guys ahead of you in PAX are quite fast.

I hear you on being a bit tired in the afternoon. I instructed at our novice school the day before and spent a bit of time running around working the course in the rain when I wasn't instructing(I logged just over 7 miles on my fitbit Saturday and 6.25 miles Sunday). Man I slept really good Sunday night.

GOOD LUCK in your next event!

I can believe that you are exhausted after two days of running around that much!

I keep watching the video and spotting places where I got behind.

Good thing I have a a spare set I bought for Nationals to run and not many more events planned before nationals.

My last event of the year. Placed third, would have been second if I didn't cone this run away.

Ended up 3rd in class, 25th in PAX. 46th in raw out of 119 drivers. Pretty happy overall.

Well ended up doing another event this year. Someone offered to pay for fuel and entry if I let them co-drive my car so I said sure.

Placed second in GS, 37th in Pax & 78th in Raw out of 177 drivers. Pretty happy with the results. Co-driver got edged out of 3rd place by a few hundredths and coned away a second place finish.
