I know there is a lot of PAers so sound off here! [HR][/HR] I'm from Pittsburgh and have been here pretty much all my live. My last car was a Mazda 3 (non speed), which had quite a few mods and I autox it. Had a lot of fun with the car to be honest but even with all the mods I had, the car doesn't come close to the FiSTing that I get now. Not sure on what if any mods with the FiSTing, thinking some kind of bike carrier (roof or hitch mount) and more flapping in the near future...

Well I guess I have to chime in. Also from Pittsburgh and a former autocrosser. I started in a Civic Sedan that I ran from stock through STS and enjoyed, then moved to a MK1 MR2 that I also enjoyed. My goal with the Civic was to move all of the go-fast bits over to a hatch and add a turbo B16, but it never happened. The FiST is my way of recapturing the spirit of the car I never built, and I can't be happier. It is so light, tossable and quick.

I'm kinda jealous of the painted calipers. Might have to paint mine myself sometime.
[HR][/HR] I was either way on the calipers but after getting the painted, I won't have to bother doing it myself and I like the darker wheels more. Im cleaning off the wheels and calipers every other day just to keep them looking nice. Wonder how long that will last, lol

Yeah I here you on that. I regret not just ordering mine with everything I wanted. The brake dust kills my OCD cleaning. I'll take a pic next time of the front wheels half dirty and half clean. Its like they turn the color of the painted ones with brake dust.

[HR][/HR]no comments ='s fail... ! :p
Sorry....Have had the car two weeks. It will be my daily driver. My commute is 50 miles a day. So far a blast to drive! I also have a 2013 Ford Escape Titanium that my wife drives, and my toy, a 2011 Mustang GT/CS convertible.

Great event yesterday...after being off for many years, it was nice to get back on track again. Eventually I clawed my way up to third place. Of the Fiesta STs in GS. Of which, there were three. LOL! I couldn't even keep the Fiestas 2-3-4 sweep in class (behind the Focus ST). A young lady in a GTI blasted a great last run to grab 4th place in class. Oh well, I was happy with my performance anyway. I kept shaving a bit more each run and didn't hit any cones. Having two identical FiST running a second faster than you takes away all of your BS excuses...I hope to get out there and chase Dan and Mister_Mino some more!
