I took the Fiesta to GingerMan Raceway last night for test and tune. Interested in how it performed? You can read about it here http://www.racetech0722.com/?page_id=79

I should have video and pictures soon. The in car footage has the sound all messed up, so it will need be to edited or something done to cover up for the camera issues.

The footage is still on the video camera. I got home late, took care of the trash and watched some of the video. By then, it was pushing well past 11pm. Extra coffee is needed today to stay awake.

Autocross footage should be up today, and hopefully track footage after this weekend. Blurbyu shot some footage from the side of the track, and I had a camera on the inside while lapping. Sadly, I had the in-car cam pointing over too far to catch the Exige S shoot flames at me every time he passed and then downshifted. The car was silly fast, and so was a Super 7. The clock said around 1:36 for the Exige, while the Fiesta was around 1:55. I need to review all of the video footage to see if there are other fast laps for the Fiesta. I only timed 2 of them lastnight.

We have footage of the Mustang from the autocross, but not from GingerMan. My new Hoosier R6's won't hold air when they are cold, so until the situation is fixed, no open track. With the MM TA and tubular k-member, the Mustang is really starting to come together. My brother ran almost the exact same time in the Mustang as he did with the Fiesta at the autocross. We ran the Mustang easy since it was the first time driving more than around the block, and we were not sure how well the R6's were going to hold air. So many new parts!

Nice Write-Up.
I WOULD recommend a Good Proofread though.
Mainly in the first paragraph or two. After that, it's Clean.

Thanks for the tip. Most of the time, the blogs are written at all different times of the day as I get a few minutes. Many times I go one direction with a paragraph, and end up someplace completely different when I get back to writing them.

I just noticed one word where I KNOW that you Meant a different word... Spellcheck didn't catch it because it was still a word.
There was one other little thing, but I forget what right this second.
I wouldn't say anything except for the fact that otherwise it is so well written, AND it's "published" as opposed to just a msg board post.
:thumbup:
