Well Like I posted on the other Thread, we had a blast up there. Me and jack were ripping and carving canyons. Not one incident at all. We had a blast. We should set up another run in about 2 or 3 weeks!

Here are a couple pictures. I didnt really take a lot.

that was a good run!

you and jack ate up those roads!
It was fun and I dont know what it was but my car was on rails that day! It was much more responsive. And thats considering in those Sweeping left turns I was not pushing it at all just to keep from causing issues or not taking chances. Yeah I was whipping my car around those little sweepers!


Josh, You need to get that Tranny issue taken care of. Im Curious to see how it will do against a pretty stock suspension SVT. As we all know Jack's Suspension is not exactly stock [shhh] !!


Im ordering my KYB's this weekend. I noticed the difference the Poly Bushing kit did for handling. Maybe Front Tubular A-Arms are next! But at $1000 for all 4 I dont know.

Hope more SVT's or Any Focuses go next time. I dont think Rustangs will be much of a match for me or Jack. HA HA HA HA HA[headbang] I wish that GT500 Would of waited for us! That would of been awesome!
