Default Camp Steeda 2016 Recap!

Hello All:

Wanted to provide you with a little recap of what you may have missed if you didn't attend Camp Steeda - there is always Pony Wars coming up on October 22 at South Georgia Motorsports Park!

The 15th annual Camp Steeda at Sebring International Raceway was a huge success! In collaboration with Track Guys Performance Driving Events, more than 120 participants (new drivers and seasoned drivers alike) ran the full course over the two-day event. Track Guys offers a combination of classroom education and real-world driving instruction. With four groups in total, there is sure to be a driving class suitable for everyone.

We teamed up with Evan Smith from Mustang-360 to drive our stable of Steeda-equipped Mustangs throughout the event. This wouldn’t be the first time Evan got behind the wheel of our supercharged Steeda Q650 S550 – compared to last year’s event, our Q650 was now making more power (right around 700 rwhp) and was fitted with rear coilovers, refined front suspension, Hoosier slicks, big brakes and a few other upgrades. We were also really looking forward to seeing what our full-suspension 400rwhp Steeda EcoBoost S550 could do at the track, and how it stacked up against cars with twice the amount of cylinders.

After a few laps in our Steeda EcoBoost S550, Evan was amazed at how he was passing everyone in sight. While the power wasn’t there to pull anyone down the straights, we could close the gap under braking and we had tremendous momentum in the corners. Planting the tires with late-braking gives you a very high level of grip on initial turn-in, and we found ourselves pushing really hard – the Mustang remained composed and balanced. In just a few laps Evan passed a Corvette, a GT500, and (we believe) two GT350s.

Best Regards,
