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.

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.
This was all made possible by these shops/people:
Power by the Hour
5.0 Mustang & Super Fords

Sorry. Recorded at a parking lot, there was not enough road to accelerate
as it should be.
Thanks to BMC Extreme Customs (creators of the Black Mamba Hood)
This Stang is a 2011 5.0 manual V8 (don´t get confused with the different
emblems my car has) and I got inspired mostly on the 2010 Shelby GT 500
Thanks for watching and for all the major positive comments.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake - 750 Horsepower ROAD TEST
I was lucky enough to get the keys to this awesome car and wanted to share
my quick blast up this canyon road with any fellow gear heads. I'm just
your average car lover that happened upon this great opportunity to wheel
one of the fastest production Mustangs ever made! Chevy, Mopar or
Ford guys should appreciate this car...750 horsepower in a production
street car is flat-out cool. Unfortunately my lack of skills don't do this
car justice on the road...but this video will give you a taste of the
immense power, ferocious sounds and sexy yet menacing looks of this
American muscle car.
Check out the other videos on my you tube channel... there are a few more
road test videos with some great cars and build videos of my personal

Lethal Performance 2010 GT500 1/4 mile run 10.13
It started as a great day. Cool air and sun. We got to the track by 8:30am
and finally got in and unloaded by 9:30. We had a check list of things to
go over before making any runs. One of which was to make sure the 2-step
was setup properly. When Jeremy fired the car up and tested the 2 step I
noticed a bit of moisture come out of the left tailpipe along with some
light white smoke. I honestly thought it may just have been from the car
sitting overnight, the cold weather and the 2-step loading up the cylinders
with fuel. I really didn't think anything more than that as the car ran
great on the Dyno and
I had no other reason to believe there was an issue.
So we headed to the staging lanes. Lowered the tire pressure to 14psi and
made our attempt at our first run with the new setup. The 2-step was set at
3500rpm's and immediately blew the tires off. The track prep was crap and
I'm sure the cold weather didn't help. Since it was such a horrible launch
Jeremy shut down even before shifting into 2nd and aborted the run.
Since the car was still cool he rolled back around and got into the staging
lane again. Waited a bit for our class and then stepped up again. This time
the 2 step set a little lower. Launched the car. Same thing. Blew the tires
right off finally got back into it by granny shifting into 2nd and then
stayed in it through 3rd and 4th. We obviously didn't expect much due to
the launch and slow shift into 2nd. The run yielded a 10.40@138 and change.
I don't have the slip but the 60ft and 1/8 time and 1/8mph weren't anything
When Jeremy came back around from that run he told me he noticed some white
smoke out the drivers side Exhaust
when he let out of it after the 1/4 mile mark. At this point we started
getting concerned as even though the launch was junk we should have seen a
faster mph for the power we're
making. So we started to look into what was happening with the smoke and
moisture. My first inclination was to check the radiator reservoir. When I
opened it up it was very low. There was only about an inch of fluid from
the bottom of the tank. The last time I had checked the tank was when we
were on the Dyno.
Since then the car has been worked on so it's possible some fluid may have
been taken out but again I was very concerned. We ended up pulling all of
the plugs. What we found was some light pepper speckle on most of the
porcelain which means that at some point the car detonated or ran hot. We
did a compression check on each cylinder and everything checkout out fine.
So we put the plugs back in and I flashed the car with the 93 octane
aggressive tune. The tune we were running before was the race gas only
Get up to the line with the 2 step lowered a bit more and launched the car.
Same thing. Blew the tires off however it wasn't nearly as bad as the last
run. The run actually looked like it was going well until I see the brake
light lit up from a distance and see that Jeremy shut down before the end
of the run. He coasts through the traps and the board lights up a
email@example.com. I believe it was around the 1000ft mark where he let off.
When Jeremy comes back around to the trailer he said that as soon as he
went into 4th the car broke up so he shut down. After reviewing the run on
paper it was going real well until the back end. We had a 1.535 60ft and
6.56 firstname.lastname@example.org. We believe that if the car stayed on it's course from
that 1/8 mile time and mph we should have trapped 144-146mph and seen that
9 sec pass.
Now here's the negative part. We know something is going on with the car.
The moisture in the Exhaust, loss of
fluid in the coolant tank and the way the plugs looked make it pretty clear
that we're going to have to pull the motor. Not only do we want to risk
hurting the motor but in order for us to see what's going on it's got to
come out. Whether it's a blown head gasket or something else it needs to be
fixed as it definitely played a role in the poor performance of the car
I'm somewhat upset as I was expecting a better day and we were really
hoping to see some 9.60-9.80's however I completely understand that this is
just how it works with racing and accept it. The motor will come out this
week and picked up by our engine builder for him to take apart and find out
what's going on. We look to be back up and running in a couple of weeks.
On a positive note we know that the 1/8th mile time we saw from our only
somewhat clean pass is an indicator that the car is strong. Being that it
was also done on the 93 aggressive tune and not the race gas tune also
makes us realize there's a lot more in her. We also learned a bunch about
our suspension setup which will be helpful for later on. Lastly it was a
great day spent with my family and friends. My wife, son, employee and crew
from UPR made it all that better considering what was going on.
