Thanks for the warm welcome Bill!

Yeah having my first road course day at Laguna was indeed very special. It’s only an hour away from my house and I’ve been many times as a spectator so getting to drive it was wonderful. Looking forward to driving there again.

That's a great track, though it can be a little intimidating for first timers. Kudos for taking the Ecoboost out. My buddies are trying to get me to go out to event there next month but I'm not making the trip unless it's a high decibel day. My "touring" cat back on the GT is enough to get you kicked off track.

Welcome to the site, looking forward to watching your progress and contributions. ;)

Thanks Chris.

Yeah Laguna has some high stakes areas for sure.

There were some really loud cars there, if you head left after turn 5 and lift for a sec you will be fine. There are also three strikes so you have a time or two to figure out how to pass.

Chris, welcome to TMO. While the idea of adding GT350 brakes sounds like a great idea they are very heavy and there might be better options. Like installing the PP brakes. Check out this thread.

VoodooBoss,

Thank you for the welcome and thanks for the link. I shall investigate! I agree that those GT350 brakes look pretty hefty. On to the the trail of PP brakes.

Nyuk,

We have quite a few Mustang Maniacs from Missouri show up at the Mustang Roundup, so better put that event on your Calendar for the first Week in October. Actually we even get three or four guys from way down South of you in Cape Girardeau, so fantastic way to meet some of your fellow road course racer in the " Show Me " State!

Welcome , welcome , welcome , this is one fun place to get tech advice, track info, and yes, socialize with like minded TrackAddicts.

Thank you very much, Bill, for the welcome and for the invitation to the Mustang Roundup.

Blair and Hastings are a bit of a drive (450 / 550-ish miles) but I've put MR on the calendar. Hopefully, work will not interfere and we can join the fun.

I have found lots of great tech info here as a lurker and I figured I should sign up and contribute even in a small way to the forum.

Cheers,

Chris

Forget Blair, just go directly to Hastings , and you can even skip bringing any Beer, because the guys from Cape Girardeau think it is something equivalent to bath water each evening after the track event --- yes I am intimating they bring enough to bathe in, ha!!!!

Hey Everyone
I just joined today but I've been stalking this forum for the past few weeks. I'm a civil engineer in Destin FL, married and have a 4-year old who's crazy about jeeps. I'm new to road racing but not to mustangs. My goal is to attend a few track days a year. My current car is a 2007 Mustang GT / Foose Stallion with I've had for ~6 months. My DD is a lifted 2014 ram 1500 and my wife drives a 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. My past cars were a 1988 Mustang GT modded for drag racing (NOS, suspension, gears), 2004 M3 (which i loved but unfortunately had an SMG which is why its gone). Looking forward to my time here!

Long time lurker, but decided to say hey and give a little history.
57, work way too much and take little time to enjoy life. It was time for a lifestyle change, so I went to the SAAC National Convention @ IMS in 2018 and realized I needed to get back where I belonged.

A little backstory;
Former SCCA LOL Region ESP Champion, many many years back. Decided after a well earned divorce to get back to my true passion of road racing and time trials. My 1st attended event was the inaugural race for the ill-fated IMSA Mustang GTP @ Road America in 1983 where it placed 1st & 2nd in class. My gf at the time and I were treated to a ride with Ford Special Vehicle Operations boss Michael Kranefuss in a prototype Mustang SVO. Needless to say, I was hooked. I actually ordered one about 2 years later when I could finally afford one.

Last went to RA (Northwoods SAAC Event) in either `93, 94 or 95 ... its all a blur. Back then it was run as more of a time trial ... single laps from a rolling start in the pit lanes. Set 3rd fastest time of the day on my last lap in a 88 Saleen ... mostly stock engine, tweaked suspension, Conti Road race tires. Had the time of my life .... then I got married. :rolleyes:

Fast forward 100 years, several Mustang's and 3 performance boats later, here I am to get after it again ... this time with a `18 PP2 but nothing of the caliber of @steveespo. Met him and a handful of other participants at last July's Northwoods RA event as a spectator and can't wait to get back on the track this July for the 1st time in 25+ years.

Glad you are getting back to the track and this is the best place to find out about upgrades, track mods, tires, rims, track techniques, and like minded Mustang Maniacs. Start saving now , as after RA you will want to wander down to Nebraska for the Mustang Roundup in early October!!

Welcome!

Sounds like you're about to start having a lot of fun again! Glad to see you get past the lurker stage. Might as well start interacting with everyone in here. ;)
