Thanks far enough away but its been updated to 3000+ acres so...
Its what happens when we had record braking wet spring and get all sorts of growth and then no real measureable rain in the last 60 days and high 90's low 100's. Everything all drys out and is just waiting for that one idiot to not be thinking.
Bold move putting a tow strap on that? I put a tow strap on a crash bad and it worked ok when gentle but when it really needed to pull it ripped it off. crash bars are designed more to be pushed toward the car then to be pulled from it. Been trying to figure out a good place for a new front strap. If this is a unwarranted fear I might add it to my front support bar which I upgraded to DOB tubing. Need to upgrade the frame bolting though, looks like yours mounts solid to the body.
Fully understand that issue. Dont think the Mk1's had is else were but trying to find a good structural part on the Focus in the front is difficult the tow strap / tie down points are 2 feet into the car. the rear was easier.
Trying to get a solid tow mount to the inner points will require fab work that I dont think I can work or trust.
So I had to do some headlight repair. The passanger side one popped off its internal mounts. So I couldn't aim it. Had to remove both high and low beam bulbs so I could get a good grip to pop it back in place.
Well had some unexpected repairs I needed to make on the SVT. could tell something smelled like burining or hot electronics on my way home from work. the Pigtail connector was smoking when I got home. I had replaced the resistor last year (it had rusted so bad the wire was just an open) but this time its the connector. Got the new pigtail soldered in since I had it laying around from when I replaced the resistor. but the plug was so melted that I had to steel the resistor from my other focus.
Fun times when its off and on rain/thunder storms and your just working in a drive way.
I need to get better cameras. My last track session the updating of my data overlay and trying to import from the Go-Pro was not really working. And my old Hero 3+ Silver (IIRC) is now old enough that the battery does not last a 20 min session either...
but will be posting a few videos and pictures
I am on work travel till the day before the track weekend so it will be a mad rush to get the car ready. I wont have done the shroud / ducting I was planing on doing before this event so my fans will likely be running. just need to keep an eye on my temps but October should be cooler than the middle of summer.
Likely will be working on the car while at the track to do the brake pads (got my new HP+ pads). got an oil change I may be trying out the Amazon basics full synth stuff.
Daniel how is your part of Texas doing for the floods?
Guys i am about to replace the shock and struts on my car and add lowering spring, I am trying to find out if i can use oem replacement or do i need to find something shorter due the drop . If this is in the wrong place can you please repost as needed
