Turns 1 and 17 haven't got any smoother or wider, but they are still fun. This video should convince you to come race with us!

Don's Zetec is 195HP + and fast and he is an excellent driver. Fun race.

Bill,
That's a great video of the Sebring track. I was quite surprised that you and the Zetec were so closely matched on the straights. Also a bit EXCITING when you both caught the car (CF?) at T17 on the next to last lap (of the video, anyway) .. then the Vee at T2 - where you got by and were apparently able to break the draft. The FC seemed to benefit from the draft much more than you.

A thought.... if you were to tilt your left side mirror up a bit, you could get some pretty decent video of what's going on behind you. I have mine set up that way and have seen some REALLY interesting stuff show up in it on occasion.

Are you in a Speads? I'm not a F1000 guy, but am really interested in watching the class. It's come a LONG way in just a few short years. I'm wondering if I could drop one of those MC motors into my Vee .

Steve, FV80

The race was 3/4 over when I ended the video. I built a gap. But Don's car is run as an FA. It's not your average Zetec motor. Tom B would have been right there but his tires were old, ours were stickers.

But thanks! All those unwinged cars know us and know we wont do anything stupid around them. Patience has its virtues.

Don and Tom have told me my Stohr creates a huge suction for them, dam it... but it corners like its on rails once I get heat in those huge fat tires.

Thanks Benny! Half my videos are Dolphins and Manatees! I love those animals almost as much as the old Stohr.
