Something I have been considering...how much harder to close the lid with the Steeda pop kit?
I ended up selling mine. I purchased the large wing pop kit but it was way too strong for my liking. Mind you I have a MMD duckbill wing which I wouldn’t call small. I went back to stock but I am considering using the small wing pop kit to see if it helps with ease of closing.

I installed some mods last week. I decided to replace my Ford Performance X springs for Steeda ultralite springs paired with Ford Performance FR3 shocks, Steeda IRS bushings and alignment kit. Personally I couldn’t stand the uneven drop of the FP X springs. I decided to get something a bit more stiffer and stayed linear. All I can say is wow! The more I drive it the more I love it. I definitely was expecting more of a stiff ride but it’s the perfect balance for a DD

Brought my pony to our first ever HPDE event.

Forecast for a hot day so I'm no dummy and picked the spot closest to this oak tree and it's beautiful shade.

To be honest I was worried about the base GT brakes as well as stock alignment and the risks are real. I used the knowledge from reading this forum to keep things in check and given the chance to open things up my instructor would giggle every time we hit this rise before the stop/start line and caught air!

No more horse with no name. Say hello to my little doll, with props to favorite author John D. MacDonald and Travis McGee.

Went to the Grocery Store and she made a new friend.

This is at the back of the lot. Like a HUGE lot. Away from all the peasants.

I see a shopping cart encroaching on your safety buffer.

I noticed when I came out as well. That was the universe's way of reminding me that they can still get to me even at the back of the lot. If that one would have rolled the angle would have taken it away from my car if it was forward or somewhere else in front of my car if it was backwards. I was safe.

A huge technical accomplishment! I put the trunk mat in the trunk. Go me.

It's a Lloyds Ultimat. I've bought Lloyds mats before and they fit nice, wear well, etc. My "complimentary color" choices were three; two of which were black and dark grey. I chose dark grey.

Fits great, made nice....but that doesn't look like dark grey to me. Maybe I should contact the vendor...

What track did you go to/who was the organizer?
Hi Paul, event was at Thompson Motor Speedway and organized by Mass Tuning. Instructor did ride along and gave up time driving his own car to give me sound advice after our sessions.

Sounds awesome, I need a pro to push my car to it's limits so I know what they are. I haven't been able to do it yet or am just a chicken. Would be good to get that education of knowing it's limits. I built what is essentially a muscle car - sports car.
