1st auto-x in the FC

I ran my 1st auto-x in my FC last weekend. For the past few years I have been running my SM WRX wagon on R compounds. We have two autox clubs here, so I'm running the WRX in one and the rx-7 (sm2) in the other for fun. I had a total blast driving the FC. It has a 3" turbo back, rtek 1.5, lowering springs (dunno the brand), energy suspension bushing set, dtss eliminator bushings, carbotec bobcat pads, 99 mustang gt rims w/ 225/45R17 Falken Azenis sports. It was a lot different than the wrx. There was a bit of power-on oversteer, but otherwise it really pushed through corners. I need some negative camber up front! Also, I am used to abs, so threshold braking is pretty new to me. My buddy took a camera around on a run, here's a short video: http://media.putfile.com/FC-Auto-X-Run

sounds like fun!
it took me a few events to really get used to the FC's behavior and to even get it setup in a way that I was able to drive it hard and see good results.

We're looking forward to running our FC in SM2 up here in New England. Our first event is 4/29. I'm going to show your video to my son who will be driving in his first auto-x.
