- Background & Plans
I bought the car new in 2005 and drove it every day. When I moved to Texas from Ontario Canada in 2015, I could not leave it behind. In late 2019, a buddy invited me to try a weekend HPDE at a local track and I was instantly hooked. I love this car and fully know that it would be cheaper to buy a new one. Up until now I've been replacing worn out, rusty components as they fail and working on getting more seat time. Pretty much everything between the chassis and the pavement has been replaced at this point.
My goal is to make my Mustang a bulletproof, fast car that is street legal and still looks mean and start doing time trials.
Apex 18x11s (square) with 285 200TW tires (actually went 315)
6 piston Brembos in the front with Girodisc rotors (have the calipers but they don't fit with my current wheels)
- Maximum Motorsports Roll bar and six point harnesses (looking for options - let me know if you have recommendations)
Trufiber fenders and junkyard door replacement
- New steering wheel
- EPAS conversion
- Department of Boost GT450 with 30GPM cooling setup
- Finish pulling out hail dents
- get the car wrapped or painted
