S550 GT350R Race Car Build Build Thread Profile - S550 Mustangs

It's been a while since I looked at this thread!

Yes still using the FP350S ABS. Big improvement on stock and less $$ than aftermarket options.
Last time I had the Grey car out -- Some may have seen this on Facebook.....

Great weekend of racing with NASA Great Lakes at Mid Ohio, last weekend of August.

Had an engine issue (again) with the new car. Ran the Grey car for 35 minutes in the Trec Race and lost the clutch!

Spent the rest of Friday trying to diagnose the engine issue on the new car and gave up!

Got to the track at 6:30am Saturday and spent 10 hours pulling 2 transmissions, switching a flywheel, clutch and slave cylinder and reinstalling a transmission.


Many thanks to Charles Jawor, Steve Esposito, Leo Capaldi, Alex Perales, Frankie Schaffier II and Craig Capaldi for their help.
Made the race with 15 minutes to spare and gridded P4 as I missed qualifying.
Great result. P1 in ST2, Adrenaline was high!
