512 Road Race 67 Mustang @ Shelby Club Mini-Nats 08/08
My 67 Fastback Mustang Again... This event was the first event with my new 3-link coil over rear suspension that I designed. It worked extremely well and I expect it'll get a tad better with a little more tuning. The front end now pushes real bad - I'm assuming this is due to the spool in the rear end.
The spool worked quite well with the leaf spring suspension - but with the rear tires in better contact with the ground the car wants to continue in a straight line rather than turn in. The spool will be replaced before the next event with a Half Tight DPI platinum LSD.
The miss shift between 6 and 7 was actually just an accidental shift into neutral, so the 9k peak was just a free rev. The motor should be capable of spinning near 10k with out trouble (not tested...) though it makes the most power well before that.
More information and photos of the car can be found here:

Top Gear testing a Mustang shelby GT500
Starting in 2008, previous 2007 Shelby GT500 Mustangs could be sent to Carroll Shelby's Special Performance Plant in Las Vegas to be rebuilt into a Super Snake, which resembles the 1968 GT500KR, for an additional cost of $27,995. The Super Snake will offer a 605 hp 5.4LEaton roots type supercharged version with warranty. A Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharged version with "over 725 hp" will also be available, without warranty and a 0-60 time of under 4 seconds. The Super Snake is inspired by the 1967 GT500 Super Snake, a car made by Carroll Shelby for Goodyear Tires
Automobile racer Carroll Shelby transformed a conventional Mustang into a serious track racer designated as the "GT-350". The fastbacks were shipped from the San Jose, California assembly plant and fitted with a "Hi-Po" 289, 4-speed manual transmission, and included front disc brakes and heavy duty rear drum brakes. Additionally, shortened hoods and deleted rear seats with identifying trim were among the visual variations. These select Mustangs were converted to street, road racing, and drag cars in Shelby's plant at Los Angeles International Airport
