I'm more comfortable nominating someone else's car to something like this, so (since now we can nominate other member cars) I'm going to nominate RAAMaudio's silver monster for Fiesta ST of the Month. As far I can tell, he's never won this honor previously (which astounds me). I know he's not done with it, but what car is ever done? I love that thing. So much work into it. Time to recognize the car for what it is: A true FWD marvel.

Some pictures:





Now, if Rick has other photos, I'll leave it to him to upload and post them. I found these in his build thread (http://www.fiestastforum.com/forum/threads/1836-RAAMaudio-ST-street-track-dog-hauler-grocery-getter-ultra-low-weight-audio).

I do not, personally, aspire to this level of dedication, but I admire it. I just imagine the hours poured into this thing (and get a headache). It is a work of art.

Hat's off from one old guy to another.

Great submissions everyone. Keep them coming.

Street/track built for hauling all over NA to see the sites, drive the tracks, got to meets, share the fun:)

MMP Oct 2014, trailer ramp, tie downs and other mods to carry weight of the car.


A bit of maintenance between runs, that trailer will be our home soon.


Just before I passed that Mustang, I was pulling on him hard out of the turn onto the 7/8 mile front straight, it said GT on the back, maybe he was a slow driver!


The only two cars that passed me after 25 minutes on track, they have half a lap lead, 3.2 mile outer loop and very fast layout, the Vette was a race car as well, just plain on the outside, the Audio was a $$$$$$$$$$ race car.


Coming in after those two cars, only one other car passed me like they did, the NASA ST1 National Championship winner when he was out with the R8.

First track outing, 8 months of work, just broken in, not fully tuned on the Cyborg turbo, only problem was I lost 2PSI in one tire, that was it, cannot ask for a more perfect shake down of a highly modded car.

Next time out, BIG turbo power and more go fast and cooling tweaks and later more rubber on the ground:)


I even passed that Boxter race car, every session if I started behind him, and all the BRZ's, several other race cars, 5 seconds a lap fast than the national champ Spec Miata record.


I just had to park next to this fire breathing incredibly restored real CanAm monster, if not familiar look them up, insanely fast and dangerous cars.


DIY radiator, shroud, and real CAI intake installed.


Sitting on the lift, waiting for the DHM/RAAMaudio EFR6258 turbo kit and DHM bumper beam and IC to arrive.

Nice rides.

Pictures from fall when a friend and myself both got our new cars although I dislike his choice with the Dart instead of an ST... Weird how Molten Orange dislikes photos and always seems to be red or people call it red. The darker photo came out of the camera like that.

I know my car is in this months nominations but I do have to vote for Rick (raamaudio) as his set up is just inspiration to my own.

04-14-2015, 10:27 PM

04-14-2015, 11:19 PM
I'll give it a shot since I just got the photos back from my buddy! I haven't had my Fiesta but about 5 months, so my mod list isn't crazy long, but I'm still loving every minute of this little mosquito on steroids!





04-17-2015, 10:49 AM
A few more pics of the build:

DIY 11.75" BBK, GT race spec rotors, fit under 15x9, 12.8lb race wheels, barely!


DIY 11" BBK, GT race spec rotors, calipers have ears I will make adapters for to have the parking brake work, this was a much tougher job than the front as had to modify the rear hubs and make mounts from scratch out of steel then have some machined out of 6061 aluminum.


The most difficult mod on this car, cutting the rear axle flanges loose and changing the rear camber and toe to what I preferred them to be and also allow the 15x9 wheels to fit in the rear. The string was used along the pinch welds for a reference to get the alignment perfected measured off the leading and trailing edges of the new rotors.

Poll is now up, good luck everyone.
