Just wondering if any of you guys do some autocrossing in the central Florida region.My brother and I will be competing at as many events as possible this year in ESP. If any of you guys are going to be out there I would like to talk to you about suspension setups and what you guys think works and what doesn't.

I run with Central Florida Region SCCA and also with the Martin Sports Car Club of Orlando. I usually compete in Deland, Fort Pierce and Gainesville. With MSCC we have events in Tavares and St. Augustine.

I think I've seen your car out there at Deland. I have the 2003 Mustang Gt that's black and silver, my brother has the red 98 Gt. Didn't you just put a cpbra r hood and bumper on your car recently?

Yes, I did just recently install those. If you need any advice just let me know. I can also ride along with you if you want some instruction too.

Yor help would be greatly apreciated. I am planning on running as many events as I possibly can this upcomming year to try and recieve a year end trophy, mainly becuase I might have a possible sponsorship with a local goodyear store and they obviously want some recognition. This year is going to packed for me with racing. I also am part of the N.A.S.A., so I also plan on running my car at Moroso, Sebring and Miami next year as well. That and I am going to attend the Skip barber racing school here in Daytona this April. So as you can see, I realy enjoy racing and learning as much as I possibly can from anyone who is willing to give it to me. So I look forward to talking to you. I will be at the Brooksville event in Januray. It's a two day event so I guess it's like the IRCC events with one day practice and the next for points. I'll be out there on the points day. Thanks.

I run at the deland events as well. # 995. Listen to Glen, he is the only reason I continue to run a sn 95 mustang, he proves its more then possible to be successful in one.

I have rode in his car and It was better the Universal studios :)

Ok there's two too many people in this thread i've known for a few years :) . Glenn, keep an eye out for a silver s/c GT. It's got drag radials on the rear and i'm all over the place. You can't miss me. I've seen you at Fort Pierce once.

Wow, you drove from Daytona to Fort Pierce? That's even further than I drove. Do you ever go to Deland?

I know who Stan is, I'm not sure about SCCARACERGT, but I think I have seen his car. Mark, were you at IRCC this past summer? I think I recall a silver 04 GT that was getting pretty loose. You ought to come out more often, I have found autocross to be a hell of a lot more fun than drag racing. You get a lot more seat time too.

Heya Mark,
Glad you found your way here :)

Mark has a supercharged Gt and he is all over the place for that reason :)

I have known him along time :)

Hey Mark, I finaly got the cobra brakes I ordered almost a month ago. I'm going to order the 5-link this week as well and all the parts that need to go with it. Where did you go again to have your exhaust done again? Are you going to the first event at Brooksville as well? My car is still at the paint shop as well, hopefully it will be done today. It's been in there since last Saturday. Talk to you later, time to work.

Haha yea man it was a long haul, but it was fun. I'm at every Deland event whether i'm running or not. If i'm not running i'm with Shawn(SCCARACERGT's little bro), Terry(SCCARACERGT), and more than a few other Mustangs. Yea I was there this summer and I actually think you got a picture of my car, but i'm not sure. I try to come out as much as I can, but there is always a tire issue with me haha. The ol drag radials are really bald so those need replaced soon. Terry is the one who brought me out to the autox and got me away from drag racing. I haven't been back to the 1320' since haha.

If I see you at the next event, would you mind taking a ride around with me and telling me where I can improve? I had the instructor, Kelly drive it and ride with me and he basically said that the drag radials are hurting me, but they are the only way to put the power down until I get full slicks at all 4 corners. He didn't do all that good when he drove my car, but he did have fun :lol: .

Stan: I can't wait to see your car back out there running(not over cones) man! You know how to find me out there, just follow the roar.

Terry: I hate you :p . I think the IRS swap is going into my car soon, so we'll see if my car is still a handfull once that's done. I'm taking the Cobra rear brakes from him and the entire suspsension front and rear. You and Shawn will still work me though :curses: . Some small no-name shop is where I got my exhaust welded. We'll have to see with yours though since you have Flows and not Race Bullets like me(weight issue).

Mrk, give me a call, I don't have your number in my phone and Shawn is in class. I had a few questions about the brooksville and Gainseville events (if myou've gone to them). If you haven't, my freind said something today about either one of those two courses is a permanent course. He said it wal like anactual small road course that they compete on for autocross. Is that true, and if so which event is it? Oh, by the way, do any of you guys belong to N.A.S.A.? If you do I wanted to see if any of you wanted to go to any of the HPDE events they are going to have this year.

I think the first one is at Moroso in march. I haven't been to Moroso yet but I hear it's a fun track, which one isn't that you can reach speeds of at least 120 mph or more. Just checking, but if any of you want to go just let me know.

I usually race in the Buccaneer Region in Jax, mainly because I don't want to travel to much at the moment, but I try and make all of the events in Gainesville since I live here. That said I have only competed one season. I didn't get out any this year because of car problems, but I hope to be at everyone that I can next year.

That's cool man. I plan on going to a lot of autocrossing events in Gainseville and a couple other places. The only ones I've done so far are Deland and IRCC. But this year I want a year end trophy, and I'm going to go to as many events as I possibly can and win as many as I posibbly can to get one. You won't be able to miss us out there. i have an '03 Gt with a two tone, black and silver paint job and my brother usualy goes with me in his '98 Gt that's bright red. Just come over and talk to us if you want.

Hey Mark, I'm not going to be able to go to the Brooksville event. I forgot I signed up for the Silver Springs car show that weekend. I think it's still free if you sign up now and if you get a chance call Shawn and see if he's going.

I am also active in CFR SCCA and MSCC autocross.

I think we might have raced against each other last month, or the month before...I was driving my silver Subaru STi in ESP. SCCA is moving the STis and Evos into BSP in 2006.

What you didn't know is that my true passion is MY Mustang. Hopefully I'll have it tuned and ready to run early next year. I have a '96 Mystic Cobra, Procharged, MM suspension, BBS RKs...I'll introduce myself the next time I see you guys out at an event.

See ya,

- Ryan Speaks

Haha I remember the STi being out there the last event at Deland. I wasn't running, but Terry and Shawn were in your class running. Definately come introduce yourself. I've got a Novi powered silver GT. You'll see me with the other bunch of Mustangs.

That Mystic is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!! I think i've seen you at OSW once, but i'm not sure. I've also seen those pics on SVTPerformance or one of the other many Mustang forums i'm on.

Yep, I remember seeing your cars out there. Thanks for the compliments...I appreciate it. I'm itching to get my car dyno-tuned so I can really drive it and finally bring it out to an autox event.

I don't race at OSW anymore, gave that up when I started autocrossing...but I've seen a few other clean '96 Mystics around my area, was probably one of them.

Yep, I've posted those same pics several times, some of my favorites...just showing off! :p
