    I haven't. I'm just taking a sabbatical. It's just frustrating. Asshole.

    must have had better tires, I've heard anything from 2:17 to 2;20...

    but in the end He qualified the mustang at a 2:22 last years TP race weekend.

    and his best lap came in race 2, 2:20

    Wasn't an official time, he pulled a 2:16 during a lapping session. Apparently, he did it once, all other laps were 2:17+ with consistent 2:18s. The car runs Michelin slicks so the 2:16 was probably a few laps in on a fresh set of these. (My boss has his car now, that's how I knows).

    si I've been thinking more and I will wait it out (unless I stumble upon a deal I can't resist) due to the fact I would almost never use the stang if I had a track car. I will just try to stay cool and safe as I was and keep on eye on the car. As soon as it starts to show signs of track abuse I will then buy one.

    So for now, I'll down tune to 400whp and adjust camber from -2.5 to -3.0 and get HT10 pads.

    As an insurance policy, I found I car dolly with a electric winch so I can keep the front wheels off the ground on long HWY drives and also to experiment the car hauling thing. I can't find a good float that lets me open the doors for a descent price. So this will do for now

    Big thanks to the Mayor of Perth for picking it up for me! aka Spectrel

    If I had the equipment I used to have access to, I'd build one.

    You think you will get that much inside wheel wear with negative 3 on the highway? If your toe is 1/16" from zero... the wear is insignificant. Betcha braking hard at the track will put 10x times the wear on the front tires.
