I will use this thread to chronicle the build progress of my 2011 car into a wheel-to-wheel race car (without a license plate). (JK, I won't copy Drew's thread quite so closely, even if my build will end up being very very similar). The car's origin was a 401A 2011 Mustang GT with brembos, and its come a very, very long way since then. The car's body work is that of a 2012 boss 302 with the WC splitter The car's motor is (currently) a 11.5:1 MMR built coyote with roadrunner heads, cams, intake. 1.75" Longtube headers, JLT cold air, and AED tuned The suspension is koni yellows, eibach sportline springs and adjustable ARB's, J&M Camber plates, Steeda fLCAs/balljoints, whiteline rlca bracket, j&m polyball lcas, PHB, boss passive diff cooler, 18x10 SVE wheels (19x9.5 on the street currently) Lots of cooling bits (oil coolers, larger radiator), Tiger hood, steeda shifter, bracket, and whiteline insert, boss brake ducts, boss recaros, steering wheel, shifter/boot, custom gauges, Racecapture pro. McLeod RXT Clutch w/ Aluminum Flywheel, CJ Pulse Ring, YellowBoss 302S Breather System, Roush mufflers, Maximum Motorsports Bumpsteer Kit The Day 1 of the car: As it stands today: Intended competition classes: NASA ST2 / ProAutosports GTR race classes I've had some help along the way, the car has been used in commercials/b-roll for eibach, magnaflow, birdseyeproductions (cool burnout video), and most recently I've come to an agreement with Compass Minerals, Ford Racing Schools, Miller Motorsports Park and Adfarm which is really kickstarting the build into a track car. The car is currently being decaled up for a tradeshow where it will be a stand-in for the former Boss-Track-Attack cars that are currently being converted to their Boss302FRS "upgrade" cars. They weren't going to have a car ready in time for the show, so I was able to help out. The steps from here to raceday are as follows: (and will be documented here) -Get through tradeshow -remove motor for rebuild/upgrades/hardening for race use -remove interior from car, sell off any parts not going into race use -install Watson Racing roll cage -install fire system, tow hooks, belts/mounts, racecapture system -install new/rebuilt motor, refurbished clutch -dyno for classifications, get tech sticker -shakedown events -Go Race! There's a lot of parts I still have to lock down (and eventually still have to figure out a trailer/truck situation on a limited budget), but some of the parts I'm planning on using: WC/Watson cage, and related WC/302S safety gear Sparco Pro-ADV seat (already purchased/installed), Sparco Sprint seat for passenger use on DE/open days (already purchased) NRG hub, sparco steering wheel Relay based power disconnect APR GT250 wing Stage 2 (once a few races are done) odyssey lightweight battery Torsen T2R differential Watts Link - TBD I'm completely open to suggestions as to what works, what doesn't work, etc. I hope to finish the build in 6 months, but I also have a wedding I'm planning and I work in an industry where money just doesn't grow on trees, so this build will see a lot of delay due to funds or making choices that gets it to the race, but without the most premiere gear.
