512 Road Race '67 Mustang @ Sears Point with the Shelby Club 08.30.09
My 67 Fastback Mustang during the Norcal Shelby Club Sears Point event. Changes for this event were coil over front shocks up front (mount on the top arm for now, near the UBJ, with 550lb springs), DPI Platinum Trac differential (replacing the spool), and I also removed the stock rubber bushing strut rod arms and replaced it with a strut rod that uses a rod end at the frame mount. The car actually turns much easier now!
This was also the first event driven at Sears Point with my three link rear suspension. I am very pleased with each of the changes. Best time captured on video for this weekend was a high 1:47, which I am very pleased with considering the fact that this event is an Open Track event rather than a race.

512 Road Race Mustang @ Laguna Seca - Corkscrew Invitational 2010
My 1967 Mustang Fastback
dedicated Road Race car @ Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca for the Corkscrew
Invitational Race - September 18/19 2010.
The car has gone through many changes since the last posted videos. The
front suspension has been completely redesigned to allow wider front tires
and improved suspension geometry. The engine is essentially the same,
though now uses a belt drive for the camshaft rather than a timing chain.
This event was great fun. It had been ~12 years since this car was driven
at Laguna Seca due to the strict sound restrictions at the track. This
event was held on one of the allowed open sound weekends and was a great
success. Thanks to Hooked On Driving, the Nor-Cal Shelby Club, and the
other clubs that made this event happen.
This particular footage is from the session before the race on Sunday.
Unfortunately the camera stopped after a lap or two of the race, so I don't
have complete footage. We did finish in first place, with a very fast
Panoz in a close second. It was a great race, I passed the Panoz cleanly
in turn 9, and worked hard to stay in front for the last three or so laps.
This is the same video file as my last upload, this time using a much

512 Mustang @ SAAC Vintage Race 2 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
Silver State Classic Challenge 2009 - The Narrows
Going through the White Pine River Narrows at the Silver State Classic Open
Road Race on 9/20/09. Car: '01 Corvette Z06 in the 145mph class. Video
starts at 145mph, ends with the car going about 135mph. I went through a
little too fast, so I had to slow down at the end to scrub off time.
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.
