Off to Mid Ohio tomorrow. Car (and hopefully driver) are settled in. I'm hoping for keeping it shiny side up, in same condition as now, and with a new PB.

Different tires, different brake pads, and new CAI/Tune. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

JRP speedtherapy trackday at CTMP went off without a hitch. Car ran like a champ all day and felt fast. Overall just a great day of driving. Time posted in lap thread.

Great to hear it went well!!

Follow up on the 305's - fit great, used a 0.100" spacer for a little clearance up front but didn't need it.

Holy grip

Slow in fast out, slow is smooth and smooth is fast, keep it shiny side up . . . . LOL, I know you didn't ask me but that's the best I got!

I can't believe the season is half over and I haven't made it to the track once. Heck I think I have only found time to wash the Mustang once. I moved in December and have been preparing the old house to sell ever since. Good news is it is done now, just listed it, so hope to have some time for fun during the second half of the summer. And hopefully all that work will pay off with a little extra play money too, LOL!

Take the uphill entry faster than you think the car can take then dial in a bit more steering while under compression as it transitions from flat to up. You have TONS of grip there.

Similar for ghe downhill. Quick flick of the wheel as you hit the compression on the downhill

For the right after the left hander, aim to put wheels in the inside curbing. You likely won't get there but the track has a lot of camber by that curb and you'll find grip

use 3rd through big bend and onto the back straight. You'll have better lift throttle abilities

That brings back some good memories when I drove a Shelby GT350R there. I'm glad I don't live close by there I would be spending a lot of cash!

Nice, I'm jealous. In December I have solid plans to shovel my driveway.
