We had a fun time at the track last night. Although we didn't do as well as we were hoping to we got a lot accomplished with the car and in reality did quite well. Just so there's no misunderstanding the car was making 21psi and was run on C16. No methanol was used. We dialed in the suspension a little better and was able to cut a 1.47 60ft on one of the runs. We also noticed that our stock diff is shot as we were only spinning one tire as we left the burnout box. So we'll be taking care of that this week. We also datalogged the car and Jon went over the logs with me this morning. The car was pulling 4 deg's of timing. So on our 10.09 run as we went through the traps we were only seeing 17deg of timing. He's not exactly sure why but we'll be looking into it this week. We didn't log IAT2's last night as Chris's computer was having issues logging a few parameters on our car. IAT2 being one of them.
The other thing that was working against us was the weather. It was humid, muggy and we're still in the 70's. We kept scratching our heads trying to figure why we were going 2-3mph slower in the 1/8th than our last time at the track when we went 112+mph through the 1/8th. Between the crappy air the car pulling timing at least we know what was going on with the car.
With that said we're going to keep on making adjustments, tweak the suspension and get the issues straightened out with why the car is pulling timing. As Derek mentioned above I believe we're going to put in a spool.
To this date the car has seen 3 full passes. For us to being doing what we are especially with the weather and with the car pulling timing we're doing great. It's easy for someone to say that we should easily being running a certain time because of the power we're making but there's a lot more to it than that. It's easy to strap a car to a Dyno and make a number but taking that power and making it work for you at the track is completely different. Ask guys like Andy, Tony, Chris or any other person who runs fast times how many runs it took them to dial the car in. We can't expect to build a car, take it to the track for the first time and run the car to it's fullest potential. That's not how it works. We know that with how the car sits if we get the small issues ironed out and see some cool air we should see 9.60-9.70's.
For now it's back to work and we'll be out at the track again soon.

Lethal Performance 2010 GT500 firstname.lastname@example.org run..
Well we went to the track last night (2-03-10) to make a couple of runs. It
was cool and breezy but with lots of moisture in the air. There was dew all
over the cars and the track. We made a few passes on the car with a new
spring setup and had some traction issues not only in 1st but 2nd gear as
well. The best we were able to crack off was a 9.85@144+mph. That's with
the car sideways even worse then our email@example.com run. Crazy Jeremy simply
stayed in it like last time. We'll have the car up in the air tomorrow to
see what's going on. We know for sure from this pic though that it's time
for an Anti-Roll Kit from BMR Fabrication. That should definitely help the
car from twisting like it is and hopefully help with some of our traction
issues. Once we get the suspension dialed in we're gonna turn things up.
The car is also going in for a cage next week so we'll be sure to post
plenty of pics and some videos of that as well.
2013 Shelby Cobra GT500 - Lethal Performance
At Palm Beach International Raceway last night, filmed the Lethal
Performance 2013 Shelby Cobra GT500. They were extremely close to breaking
into the 9's. We know it is equipped with a Wilson Pro-Flow Nitrous kit, however, no mod list or horsepower numbers have been
released yet, we will update when we get the information.
Worlds Quickest 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 - Lethal Performance
Lethal Performance's Shelby GT500 has come back with a bang. Since we last
saw it with its stock blower/Nitrous
setup, it has come back with a helluva lot more power. Built motor and a
4.0L Whipple and no Nitrous, this beast
screams down the track. Exact Dyno numbers will not be
released until later, but we can assume it is up there...
The 9.3 pass broke the world record for quickest 2013 Shelby GT500. These
guys definitely know how to make a Mustang move down the strip.

Another great night at the track. The Lethal Performance 2010 GT500 made
its way deeper into the 9's cracking off a email@example.com. The weather was
in the 60's with a little bit of moisture in the air. Jeremy Martorella of
UPR Products pulled the car up to the line for our first run of the
evening. With the 2 step set at 2100 he made the launch. First gear looked
awesome and so did the 1-2 shift.. However after the shift the car broke
loose and started going sideways but Jeremy's professional race experience
got the car back in the groove and down the rest of the track shifting as
fast as an automatic could. As he passes the traps the board lit up with a
firstname.lastname@example.org. The car ran 114.14mph through the 1/8th. This is still
using a 4" pulley on the 4.0L Whipple which produces 21.5psi. We were using
C16 with no methanol and this is blower only. We're going to continue
working on the suspension and once it's dialed in we'll turn up the Boost. Our goal is to make an 8 second pass
with the 6 speed making it the first GT500 in the 8's with a manual
