Which part of Illinois are you? Love your 'R'.

I like it. Which pads do you recommend and what are these deflectors you're talking about.

Taking it up to Putnam in Indy next month and have a little bit of fun.

I live near Rochelle.

Vorshlag has a deflector which deflects air towards the front brake rotors. They are a sponsor and their link is in the supporting vender section. Should be running across the screen.

Pads, I run Pagid pads.

Where do you go around the midwest for racing? Ever in IN, KY, OH? Thanks for the info, I found the deflectors and the pads!

Autobahn, Blackhawk and Road America.
Blackhawk is the closest for me. Small family type of place. OK track
Autobahn is a great track also close by.
Road America needs to be experienced. Fantastic.
I work in MS. and have been tracking at Barber and NOLA lately. Barber is amazing. Just learning that track.

You’ve got quite a few tracks near you. I’m grabbing a trailer soon and Road America is on my bucket list. Do you take the R or the Boss more often?

Get a track alignment also , even if you keep it relatively stock. Believe you should have had factory camber plates also, though they went to the Parts Dept. from Ford so a lot of folks never got them.
