Glad to hear your doing well in the racing circuit. I was just looking at those pictures and I noticed you have alot of Mustangs for compettition. Are those 5.0 mustangs? and if so how well do you do against them? What is the racing circuit also? Is it SCCA or another division?

all of my competition is mustangs but they are not 5.0s they are 2.3 4 cylinders. the racetrack is a 1/2 mile oval with 30 degree banking and it is very fast. avg speed is about 95 mph.

That sounds fun! Short track is always a blast to run and it takes some good driving skills not to spin it in those constant banks. So are the mustangs much trouble at all? or do you have a better advantage being front wheel drive? or are you still front wheel drive?

all the cars have to be 4 cylinder 2 valves per cylinder n/a motors we also have to run a holley 2 bbl 350 carb ( the bubble on the hood for the air cleaner). the mustangs are quite a challenge they have alot of go fast goodies made by the aftermarket. we have to make most of are go fast parts. our car is still front wheel drive i think of it as an advantage while they are playing with the throttle trying to not spin out coming out of the turn im at full throttle pulling away
