    The HPDE $89 End of Summer Blowout at Homestead Speedway on Sept 27. In case anyone on here is close enough to attend or even come hang out. I've already registered. This is a price you never see so take advantage.

    Believe me. I wish it was even close to this normally. The going rate in S FL is $300. Way more for Daytona. It wasn't always like this. Too many clubs now.

    Sooo I went to the event. Managed to get a group of ten track buddies all with mustangs to go also. Even got there early and saved ten garage spots so we all could park together. Day started off great. Ran my first session. Only issue I had was on the back straight before turn 9 I locked up the front wheels for a sec during braking. I figured it was just that the tires were still cold so I took it easy for a few laps before going hard again. My second session ended up being my last for the day. Long story short The brakes once again locked up before turn nine only this time there was an Audi in front. I turned the wheel but nothing happened. The car managed to turn slightly to the right before smacking into him so I only damaged my driver side front vs the whole front. His car looks untouched compared to mine. Old car tech vs new. Anyways It was drivable so I got it home. I live in Boynton Beach which is about 2 hours drive north from Homestead Speedway. Looks like I'll need a new bumper and fender and lights while I'm at it. The hood got a little of it but that's fixable.

    I'll post the videos in the Track Day Videos thread. http://www.sn95forums.com/showthread.php?68692-Track-Day-Videos&p=1361835#post1361835

    Here are the pics of my poor car.

    Long ago I had issues at Daytona on the banking where the fluid would spill out. After some research I came upon that. It was made for some older ford cars trucks that used blowers or turbos. It allows you to add more fluid and sits at an angle that keeps it from spilling. Works very well. Only issue was when installed correctly theres clearance issues with the hood. I modified it in a way to clear the stock hood. When I had a R hood there was no issue.

    Do you by chance remember specific models for reference!??? There was a discussion about this recently and I mentioned it but couldn't remember which models to tell the guys to look for.

    Hard to remember but I almost recall something about a truck. Like a ford ranger or something that was factory blown.
