Nice job Ken !!! [driving] [burnout]

Sorry we weren't able to hook up. My daughter was Christened this weekend and we had family come into town (I guess I need to pay better attention to the calendar).

How did the brakes work for you? I'm going to guess that you like this set up MUCH better.

Main is a LOT different than Shenandoah. I will bet that it seemed much easier to you. A lot more time to think and plan. Better passing zones as well.

Once again, GREAT job.

FYI, I have a line on Hoosier Cup tires. I picked up 6 yesterday.

Thanks Tom for the nice words....



WOW, what a difference being able to stop makes[clap] [clap]



Had a blast, stayed with the HP+ instead of putting on the Blues or HT10's. They did just fine.


I started out slow, and by the time Sunday rolled around, signed off for SOLO, and was hauling the mail around the track. Great time!!

I picked up so much speed as the weekend progressed I changed a lot of shift points to non shift points, got around faster even yet.

When I started I was still in 3rd going through 10, by Sunday morning I was in 4th coming out of 9 because of all the speed I gained in 6,7,8... you know how they are tied together, that stuff works well when you do it right.[driving] [driving]

I will still take you up on some OJT on swapping the pads when you are available.

Will try to get up some nice pice too.

Ken

Those were some great vids. That's really impressive! What all is done to the Focus?

I love going to Summit Point, but I've never actually had my car out on the track. What venue was that, just a track day or something?

I can't speak to Ken's mods, but Summit has a lot of opprtunity for you to participate.

The event in the video was a NASA event.

The SVT Owners Association (SVTOA) does an event there.

SCCA Performance Driving Experience (PDX)

Mercedes Benz Club - Greater Washington Sector

Capital Driving Club

All of those events are open to all makes and models.

Sounds great. Is it another NASA event and do I need to register or anything like that?
