512 Mustang @ SAAC Vintage Race 1 of 3
My 67 Fastback Mustang participating in the 2008 Shelby Club Vintage Exhibition Race held during the Mini-Nats celebration at Thunderhill Raceway. This is a great event that the Nor Cal Shelby Club puts on once a year, and I'm extremely happy to be a part of it. This video is in three parts due to the length of the "race".
Trans Am Mustangs
Trans Am was a racing series that started in the late '60s before 'Trans Am' the car, by Pontiac, existed. These are various pictures of some of the Trans Am Mustangs that raced in this series from 1966 to 1970.

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.
