    Pretty much lol I’m not like a lot of the guys on this site. That’s why I have a GT only lol. It I did drop about $5000 on my car this year. I told her I’m done until next year :rolleyes: Then the clutch went and she was fine with it. She said fix it right. My Ford dealer said as of now I can put anew after market in and they will give me the new ford stuff.

    Jeff, The GT is no slouch by any means! There's a lot there to get you in trouble if you're not careful. Sounds like you have all your bases covered. Tyme for the next inning!......No more burnouts!!!!!!....:D

    Bob I never did a burnout with it :):D now my 2000 GT I would melt the tires off it lol. Those P zeros are expensive.. my shifter Kart would be faster then my GT :rolleyes: I do like running my mustang though.. apples to oranges. I need to order something before 11 to get it to my house by noon tomorrow from summit racing.

    Good luck on your adventure......I've never done a burnout in my Boss either. When others leave Tire tracks and lots of smoke, all I see are dollar bills floating away..not to mention all the stress on the drive train...;)

    I'm still on my factory clutch but I'll be preemptively changing to the Exedy Hyper Single in the coming weeks. The Exedy seems to be a highly recommended option on TMO. Downside is the clutch/flywheel alone will set you back ~$900 shipped.

    Many of us used the McLeod RXT and RST in our S197 5.0 cars early on but the Exedy Hyper Single looks like a better option for track use.

    Call Team Beefcake Racing for their best price, they should discount further off their listed price of $984

    I just ordered Exedy hyper single from Kohr Racing. It will be here tomorrow. With a OEM long throwout bearing.. should I get a after market one. They said they use it in their race cars. Total was 1303. I don’t think Beefcake stocked them when I looked.

    I bought the Exedy throwout bearing, but it looks identical to the OEM - i'm sure either is fine.

    While i'm in there I also plan to replace the pilot bearing, install a JPC stainless clutch line and Ford Performance high RPM pulse ring.
