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".

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.
