Have to admit I really like Capaldi Racing's color choices. May have to sneak over to some of the Great Lakes Region of NASA ( one of the best groups in the US in my estimation ) to run at Autobahn again to see if I can stay within visual sight of you guys, ha!

Great looking machine and am already enjoying all the posts by both of you !

Thank you for the info. That was an interesting read. I am still running stock type dampers on my S197, but starting to think about what is next.

The DSSV dampers are even cooler than the Ohlins TTX. Just out of curiosity, are they available to mere mortals, and what's ballpark on a set of those puppies? Seeing that Cortex/PSi were offering an Ohlins 3-way TTX setup (using the cheaper HRC36 struts instead of the TTX46) at around $8-$9k, and Penske's S197 package lists at over $11k for the 4-way version, I'm guessing the DSSV is in the $10-$15k range, and possibly higher. Then again, if the Mustang units are based on the OEM Camaro Z/28 units, they'd benefit from the economies of scale of the GM production run.

Dave yes they are available and I would estimate the $15,000 range
