I agree!! I was driving a Mazda6 last year. Now I have more power and in the right place. The first event I was at with the Bullitt I did terrible but giggled the whole time (I'm 43 by the way :surprised).bullitt5199 said:... Just came from a Focus that I raced so can use some more rear drive practice.FUN so far!
The 08 should be good for F stock for sure. Sam Strano is the current f stock national champ, I had the chance to talk to him the other day when I called his shop asking for suspension advice. He said that he felt FS could be won with a 05+ GT, imagine the difference with the Shelby or the Bullitt. Those should be top FS cars right now. Evo school will be fun but $$$.Kirk said:I'm autoxing my '08 too. I planned to stay in FS but got such a great deal on wider wheels with R-comps that I got pushed to ESP. I do plan to move it back to stock when the tires give out.
Here is my plan for FS mods:
- R-comps in a size near 275/35/18.
- Front camber crash bolt mod.
- Evolution AutoX school.
Based on how the car handles after those mods, these may be next:
- Tokico adjustable shocks/struts.
- Adjustable front anti-sway bar.

It's encouraging to know that these cars can get feeling better. I do have some upgrades to mine though (tokico d-specs with the legal camber/crash bolts with Nitto RT01 tires.) so I'm thinking it is me more than the car. I plan to go to an Evolution school in the spring to help with that.sam strano said:If your car is not setup, you'd be amazed at what some good shocks and tire (and alignment) will do.
