Better shoot for mid 1:40's ----- NASA club records show a 1:34 in a '99 Corvette and that record hasn't been broken in FIVE YEARS....

LOL


Mid 1:40's will put you in RECORD territory at Laguna Seca in the TT (Time Trials division). That's some of the best amatuer drivers on the west coast. Just sayin'

LOL.... we must talking about different tracks... Mid 1:40's is NOT a fast time at Laguna Seca..... know how I know? Because I just ran that time first time there

There were so many cars in the 1:30's when I was out there I lost count.... apparently there are some fast drivers/cars that don't run NASA! Go figure!

Gnx7 knows what he is talking about .. just sayin

You're right --- I was looking at the Sonoma page thinking I was on Laguna Seca....

That motor sounds nasty! Easily has high 1:30's in it at Laguna Seca. That track is pretty easy to learn once you get the hang of it.
Mark I am guessing you ran your Monster RX7 there?

Great parts list. Cortex and Griggs suspension. Stoptech front brakes. Top notch roll cage. Maier wide body and front end pieces. Custom splitter and G Stream wing. And to top it off a Turnkey Engines LS3. I don't think I would buy a Fox without a GM engine in it.



So Dave, do you know whose cradle or K member is in your car to install the LS motor ?

Thanks

I believe (was told) it's the Griggs K member. No reason to think it's not from what I've seen. I am still getting to know these Mustangs. Hope to add the SLA to it at some point.

From now on if anybody asks about the car, just say itís black.
Spring rates? Yup, black
Front K? Itís black
Control arms? Black

Or you can answer a question with a question, for instance...
Wouldnít you like to know?
Or
Whatís it to ya?

Another idea borrowed from ol Smokey himself ďitís pretty much stockĒ

Somebody do this guy a favor and go put a lock and chain on this garage door so he can't modify this thing.
