Rallying a Ford Aspire
Accidentally went off-roading in a 1996 Ford Aspire 5 door. I thought one road would lead me to another, but it ended up taking me on some pretty rough terrain. This is only a small bit of the action. The location is Coulterville, California, on Jackass Ridge I believe (Cuneo Rd). A few notes on the car- Stock all around, 1.3L and 5 speed, and crappy little half-worn 155/80/13 tires that are NOT made for dirt (These: http://www.pneusfacil.com.br/images/others/profile/Wanli/pneu%20wanli%20S10 15%20pic1.jpg ).

No clutch, no alternator, no gauges, no rally computer, no problem. We took a hard hit to the bottom of the car on the first stage with monster truck sized ruts. After which we lost the gauges, the alternator stopped charging and the EM went into limp mode limiting the RPMs to about 4500. Despite this we held on to the lead until SS4 when the clutch fork came loose and was caught in the pressure plate resulting in a dnf for the morning rally. We were able to correct the fork issue but the slave cylinder was beyond repair. We ran the second rally without the ability to disengage the clutch and on battery power only, starting the car in gear at the line. And we still finished first overall.

-Available in 720p HD!- Decided to give a few roads around here a go. It was windy and I was on Riken Raptor tires...POSs. Makes for traction-lacking conditions. Need to swap to 5spd so the trans wont shift up - as you can see my corner exit speed sucked. Didn't do as well as I would've liked but here it is. Time was 6:37. Max speed reached was ~90 mph. Calculated avg speed was 55.3 mph. Vehicle mods in video at 0:08. -closed course- Filmed by duct taping a Canon PowerShot A530 to the roof of my car aka the ghetto GoPro. Next priorities (in order) after some minor issues are fixed: -clutch pedal assembly -aluminum driveshaft -Continental 205/55/R16 ExtremeContact DWS tires -get a different daily driver -install 4.60 rear end -JVAB Sooper Bitchin' suspenders accepting donations!!! haha
