Took the Mustang to the track....

Post #1 by gus91326 » Mon Jun 18, 2018 8:54 pm

Took my 200 Mustang to the track. Nothing broke, so it was a good day! Car ran flawless all day. I haven't dyno'd the car, but it was having no trouble accelerating around. To boot, I had an 80's 911 following me around the track only for me to pull away from him on the straights.

Great pics! Your car is looking good, like pan am or touring style.

To get those pictures to post I clicked on them then clicked on them again so they were full screen in google chrome, then right clicked on the image and selected 'Open image in new tab' and used that tabs link. Which is crazy long, but it worked.

Thanks for the kind words! It was on what's called the Streets of Willow- it's a short 1.5 mile road course that favors smaller-engine cars.

My car has a V8 suspension, Galaxy front brakes, CI aluminum head with YT rockers, Fitech injection, 10:1 pistons, Bill's HEI distributor, T5 trans, 8" rear with 3.80 gears, and a bunch of other stuff that I can't remember offhand. It ran great- never got hot or anything.

The car looks good in the corner. ( very little body roll). Did the 911 driver know he was chasing a little six. I know from experience Porsche drivers do not like to be pasted by a mustang much less a six cylinder. Nice job :thumbup:

I had a couple of newer Mustang guys come over to see the car and were surprised by what was under the hood. Porsche guy never came over to see me- lol. I ran with the LA Shelby club- they were super cool and were actually receptive to the car. One guy that has a real GT350 kept telling me how much he liked the car because it was so different.

Thanks again for the kind words- I definitely love the car and want to drive it on the track more now.

It's a "200" badge. There's a guy on ebay that was making them using two "260" V8 badges. Very subtle!

The car looks good on the track :thumbup:

Willows is a nice track. Been there a couple of times. It's been around since the 50's right?

I might do a no passing event later this year.

Still admiring this Mustang. If you get a chance to include some pics of the engine that would be a big hit.

I run an air/oil separator (you can see it next to the radiator on the passenger side). That with some epoxied moroso sheet metal baffles in the valve cover keeps it controlled. I honestly see maybe a drop or two of oil in the catch can over 2k-3k miles. Works great.

And also, thanks everyone for the compliments. I really enjoy coming here and have learned a lot in the time that I've had my car. I wouldn't be having as much fun with the car if it wasn't for all of you.
