I am building up a 2008 Taurus SEL to be used as an Open Road Racer for use at the Big Bend Open Road Race or Sandhills Open Road Challenge or Silver State Classic Challenge. Working to get car complete so that my driver can take a "The Drivers Edge" training class at Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, TX in four weeks.
Steps accomplished so far:
  • Transmission Cooler - Hayden 689 - with Synthetic Transmission Fluid Flush
  • 18x7.5 Wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S 235/50x18 101Y Tires
  • Driver and Navigator iPad and Mount
  • Driver Dual Skypro XGPS160 GPS Receiver with Mob Armor Mount
  • GoPro Hero 7 Black with headrest mount
  • OBDLink MX+
  • Dash Command App
Many Updates to come this next month. Work towards getting into first race in April 2020. Tough to get in the field.

  • Add Veepeak OBD2 BLE device for use with Track Addict. Will use OBDLink when using DashCommand. Crazy to need two. But I like Racerender (Track Addict - does not support OBDLink MX+ Bluetooth with IOS - provides telemetry matching GoPro Video). And I like DashCommand (does not support Veepeak)
