errr yes, lol i could try and maybe get 1/2 a session out of them lol, but i think its gunna be a new rubbar jobby :} :} :}

oooh and anyone who dose a trackday i cannot recomend a lesson with the instructor enough, it really helpes :L

it was epic, and for a heavy car like the mondeo, if you know how to drive/corner in it its amazingly quick, i actually caught up and passed the icon motorsport XR2 ( a track prepard car ), almost got to overtake the FTO as well, but he wouldnt let me pass, but to be honest after i caught him and tailed him for a while i decided to cool off and return to the pits :L

my car is standard apart from the bits in my signature, and is running fine, used no oil/water even after the abuse, and the brake combo was amazing from my last trackday, i cannot recomend it enough :L

as for blood pumping......... i can still feel the rush :} :}

I had four wheel drifting in my Hendy ( span it completely when the rear end let loose ). All to do with physics evidently - adverse cambers etc. Never thought I could lose the arse end onf a fwd car either :L

very starnge feeling as well when it makes a bid for freedom, i am just glad the instructor was there the first time i mannaged to get the back to let go as he showed me the basics of drifting :L

but its a bad thing tbh, as rather than 2 new front tyres......... i need all 4 now :} :} :} :L

4 wheel drift in front wheel drive easy, but also easy to over step the mark.

this is where rear wheel drive is soooo much fun let the tail loose,

but FWD has the advantage on corners, being able to brake steer in, and power out faster with out the risk of the rear stepping out (or so i was told) :L

but for laughs RWD gets more grins :} :}

nah rear wheel mid engine best layout, hense race cars, but you cant break into the corner it will step out big style , but then you use the power to steer. much more fun. very tricky to learn at first, i was trained in a ferrari testarosa, that why a brought the mgf afterwards lol

you should borrow the miss car for the next one lol
