I only had one car (in my run group) catch me all day long, and I gave him "the point by" at 3:16 ish. FYI: If you drive a Fairmont at the road course, you are instantly a rock star.

Well, find a road course, see if they have open track events, and sign up! I can almost guarantee that you will have fun.

Shocked Wow awesome work.

Is it a power steering rack? I need a new rack and am looking for some options than the crappy rebuilds I get locally. 15:1 Mustang steering you say? What brand?

It's just an Autozone special. Way overboosted, but at least it's quick ratio.
