    2 videos from my trackday at Grattan. First one is from the organizers, really nice editing. You can also see my buddies with the S197 5.0 (full stock, destroyed his rear brakes when you see him lock up. Both rotors cracked in half...) and the Mini Cooper S also.



    Second one is onboard the 5.0 when i got my tank slapper and put the car the wrong way on the track :p

    Done some more work on the CAD for my front canards :)

    I'll be printing prototypes in late June and then will try to build a first set in CF in July.

    I would buy that hood and nice job with the other pieces. You need to get on Team Mustang. Let me know if you need an intro. ;)

    I'd buy that hood too in a heartbeat.

    Though the vents would have to be compatible with the hood pin locations.

    They'd have to be further back to fit your hood pins. But as they are now, the left vent interferes over the stock airbox anyway. SO i'll probably move them back to design them somehow differently to accomodate all that.

    Looks beautiful. Are these renderings or actual photos?

    My second session filmed during the trackday at Grattan in May. Had some fun chases along the way :)

    Really great video! I love the camera position for your feet. I definitely need to seek out that type of set up at some point.

    Thanks :)

    I tried installing it under the steering column but it gets in my way, and the grain in the plastic makes the GoPro adhesive mount poorly stick.
    I've stuck one on the dahsboard insert trim that goes all the way from left to right. It drops on the sides along the glovebox on the passenger side, and same thing on the driver side. It provides a very good mounting surface for a GoPro adhesive mount, and the angle of view on the feet is good :)

    Got some parts last week :

    Steeda camber plates. I'll get rid of the chrome on it and powdercoat them in either grabber blue or satin black for a nicer look. I'm not driving a Harley Davidson, so chrome won't be of any use :)

    img_3414.jpg

    I also got the Steeda clutch assist spring and perch kit. The spring is softer, making the clutch pedal feel much "stronger" than stock. Better modulation with my foot, really happy about it, especially for 60$! It took 5' to install, following Steeda's instructions. Removing the OEM is actually the "hard"part, and snapping in the Steeda doesn't even require any tool.

    And I found the ultimate use for my front tow hook ...

    Looking good. That Steeda spring is a big improvement IMO!
