Sweet! Mustang and fusion! I tried to grab a buddy with an edge but he had to work.
Should be an awesome ride this year!

We will probably be staying on that side again this year. Where are you staying at?
Yes, if you're dumb and can't Google maps. Lol

I accidentally selected the "cycling" option
🤦‍♂️

Seeing that it actually only takes 30 mins to drive I think Ima take 129 and then 28 up to the meet spots.
Sorry bout that!

An airbnb right off of the lake.
Camping was too much effort for roughly the same price as the bnb
Also, the last time I took the girlfriend camping it didn't end well(damn raccoons) so this was the only way I could get her to come. Lol

Yeah that’s why I came early to get some time in with these I picked up recently
Tire Wheel Car Vehicle Automotive tire

However after 3 runs wouldn’t you know I’ve already got a message that popped up and said “Steering Performance Reduced” until I restarted the car. Hasn’t returned yet but no idea what caused that to pop in the first place

“Steering Performance Reduced”

I get that at the track and will literally lose power steering. And being electric, it's no joke when it turns off mid corner!

Yeah, you should look into the cooling setup for the steering that Ford Performance installed in the Adrenaline Academy cars.

When my engine was out I tried covering the electric motor/heat shield with dei gold tape (didn't help).

I need to work on cooling in a few areas over winter.

This year's Saturday group run (rain or shine :() will start at the Wildwood Grill in Fontana Village Resort at 9:00am. We'll take the Kudzu cut-through, past our friends at Outland Gas & Groceries, then stopping at the Nantahala River Launch Site to regroup. From there, we'll head up to Anthony's Restaurant in Bryson City for Lunch. We'll walk off lunch with a VERY brief hike to Juney Wank Falls, then it's straight up the Moonshiner 28 to Killboy for Dragon Runs.

Google Map directions

If all goes well 🤣 we should roll up to Anthony's around 12:00-12:30. 🤞

EDIT: Forgot to mention the run up to Juney Whank Falls. It was always in the Google directions.

Just made it back about a half hour ago from the 8th Annual event. A few photos from the event.

Upgrades planned for next year’s event. Install my Mountune springs, purchase some sticky tires, and upgrade my rotors. (I’ve been slacking)
