My placement at the Winnebago event was mostly due to course design/layout IMO. If you look at all the cars above me on index, they are all significantly lighter and smaller in size. The course was by far the tightest I had seen all season, much of the turning was done off camber, and it had some really large offsets all of which are a detriment to the FoST. There really was only one section where I was able to use power and it was brief (out of the carousel going up the hill). The Federals typically due well on asphalt so I don't think they contributed much to the lackluster times. I would consider my driving average that day and probably similar to my performance at Solo Nationals. I only have one experience driving a FiST thus far and it was on a 1/2 course at our Milwaukee Solo school in the spring. I drove Eric Bertrand's car. I know it had rims and Z2's. Not sure on size of tires/rims or if it had a bar. I had run the practice course (which was definitely a bit more open than the Winnebago event) 12 times in the FoST and my best was something like a 28 second run. I was within .2 seconds after taking two runs in the FiST. I believe Jeff Cashmore drove both my FoST and the FiST nearly back to back and his times were very similar as well. Even though I feel like the FiST would be the car to have in most cases if it moves to HS, I think the move would be a good one as the Mini has reigned HS for a long time and some serious competition from another car would be a good thing for the class.
