Default FOX Mustang track car w/ LS3

Long story short ... it's not typical Lateral G spec, but it's got the spec LS swap.

Right place, right time, right body, right safety parts, and the right engine.

Bought for pennies on the dollar for what it cost to put together. Know all the local builders/installers of the car and its parts.

Got sick of watching all my buddies have fun at Sonoma and Thunderhill and just being a spectator.

Untested and untuned in its current configuration I shook it down at the Shelby Club Mini Nats last month.

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.

Sonoma was a blast and the only carnage was 5 splitter rods which killed 2 of my 5 sessions but

Good power. Light weight. Aero. This thing is a damn rocket. It's been awhile .. so if the driver can catch up to the car's potential we might have something here.

More to come...

I'm all for it. It gets you out on the track for a small investment. That equals fun to me. Do me a favor and blow the doors off you know who.

Low weight, good brakes, lots of tire, lots of hp, proven AIX components and legit aero there doesn't seem to be any excuse to not be fast.

Enjoy.

Nice introduction Dave. Appears to have serious potential.
