Ran the ST pretty hard today.

There’s a local group called Speed Advocates that I spend some weekends running with. We did a ~150 mile run today on some really good, twisty backroads...in Mexico of course. The ST performed flawlessly and I had quite a few people asking what in the hell it was. One guy with a Roush Mustang has a white ST and said he’d be bringing his on the next cruise after he followed me for a while and saw how well it took to the turns. The H&R springs and lightweight wheels helped a lot I’m sure but this little SUV surprised a lot of people today.
Now it’s time to get some power in it. It really starts showing the limitations of the factory intercooler when running up to 120+ speeds in 90 degree heat...but that’ll be fixed soon enough. C1224F27-EC9C-4F24-813E-19B36ACD5699.jpeg 4382E370-6009-4218-B0AC-9976EE2B4D93.jpeg

Great looking group of cars. No video from Mexico?;)

I honestly feel like the heat soak comes on pretty quickly on a hot day even if you aren't driving hard. The intercooler is on my short list also.
