Last action shots until spring, as we finished our 2008 autocross season yesterday. Did well even with the car being "down" with a stock, open, breath on the throttle and burn tire, differential. It was a lesson in smoothness as we had NO corner exit acceleration. Was able to pull a 1-2 victory in class with myself and my codriver taking first and second, respectively. Overall, great season and while i am unhappy it's already over, it gives us time to get the new rear end figured out while deciding on a few other tweaks here and there for the off season.

anyway, pics:

out of the hole = zero accel. had to basically feather the throttle and at no point in time could we dip into it. man, that was hard.

excercising my right to take corners as wide and make everything into a sweeper to maintain momentum.

Wow,nice pix and vids! Looked like a tight course! I have only done two events so far in my region and they were both on pretty open fast courses which was fun.

My last event was with a stock open diff also and boy it was hard to get around!

What wheels and tires are those?

Both Ray and I were on open diffs.
Ray because his 7" euro diff died and me because I haven't bought a LSD yet.

Ray was running Hoosier's on Focus wheels on the rear and some other kind of slicks on the front (can't remember what they are). I'm just running Falken Azenis on some sort of 16" wheel on mine.

The Mustang was running really really big slicks on really really big wheels. :P
