    Re: 16v continued

    I am hoping not to jinx myself but....
    I have driven the blue car 2k miles since June.
    The only setbacks were the faulty temp sensor and the cracked header.

    I did the recall function on the tach. The majority of those miles were at 4.3k rpm , the highest was 6.8k. Running 15 - 20 psi.
    The engine has been running great. The tranny as well. I feel like the tranny linkage is kind of " breaking in" , it is far less notchy and hard to engage into gear.

    Question for all the T3 people - what type of maintenance schedule should I have based on this type of driving? What kind of longevity should I expect?

    Thanks again for your input.

    Ps I took Johnl 's advice and have been doing weekly runs on rt 33.
    I am pretty sure they filmed the Leno's garage Mustang gt350 episode on this road.
    Great part is - as John said- you have great visibility of the road ahead, and can drive full on race track style - using both lanes, late apex's , full throttle out of the turns .
    And be confident no one is coming the other way.
    Super super fun, 100 miles of twisty road .

    His reaction is so funny.
    Who was first to identify it? I am guessing it was someone from here.

    I have to admit I re-sent it to a lot of friends. Thanks again GLHNSLHT2

    What kind of event at Willow, big track? I gotta admit, I love the primitive nature of willow, S's thru turn 5, wide open sweeper thru 9 Also gotta admit, I hate the primitive nature of Willow. I swear they haven't put a single dollar into upgrades in the 30 years I've been going. lousy concessions, even worse bathrooms, car destroying boulders 10' feet off track...

    You ought to run Waterford Hills... 10' off the track you're into the fence... That was one of the big warnings we got this year at SDAC, that track is not forgiving of screw ups...

    Still, it was an absolute blast. My first time ever running a road course. With better wheels/tires, and a little more power, I could see myself getting into that... Guess I need to start gathering pieces to duplicate the engine in the Scamp for the Daytona...

    Uh oh, here I go again....

    Re: 16v continued

    @ 2.216VTurbo-
    You were dead on about willow springs. Did 1 track day in Gtp, and 1 in a friends Miata. Blue car did great. Was fast , and so easy to drive at high speeds. Did not get as light in the front as I expected. On the roughest asphalt it got a little squirrelly at high speeds.
    For those that don't know it , Willowsprings is called " the fastest road in the West" . Its insanely fast , and equally insanely poorly maintained. So you can hit 150 in the Consulier, take turn 8 at WOT , and just as likely hit a pothole as not.
    Literally ever inch of the track has tire tracks going off into the dirt , even the straights!( there are no curbs , nor paved run offs)

    It reminded me of after the Zombie apocalypse. A crazy ghost town feel.
    Note the Ford graveyard. I counted 10 el camino's.

    Will post pictures of the Consulier when I get them.

    Re: 16v continued

    I bent a rear control am and trashed an expensive wheel on my 2005 SRT6 slamming into a basketball sized boulder that *shouldn't* have been 20' off of the racing line. I've sworn off Willow since. BTW, your front strait speeds will be +20MPH over WSR at the Fontana Auto Club Speedway if you get a chance to run there. If you've never been 10/10ths on a track with 17degree banking, it's an experience! SpeedVentures (my favorite 'on track experience' company) runs there often.

    Re: 16v continued

    Yep, turn 8 through 9 is a spooky fast right right and there are bumps out there that will bottom your left front bump stop, provoking front end slide/rotation.

    Nice pics at Wolf's on 33. Did you get over to Hudson Ranch Road (formerly Cerro Noestre) ? If not, you really should before Florida.

    When my MC friends do track days at Willow, as AJ says, I don't do the "big track" but I will if they're doing "Streets of Willow" You meant to say, Rancheros in that graveyard.

    Yeah that was a bad mistake. Good thing this is not a Ford forum.
