Lethal Performance 2010 Shelby GT500 10.09@140mph

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. Jared

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.

Lethal Performance 2010 GT500 9.85@144.12mph 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 9.66@146.19 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.

Fastest 2010 GT500 in the Country- Lethal Performance 9.66@146.19 WWW.LETHALPERFORMANCE.COM
Another great night at the track. The Lethal Performance 2010 GT500 made its way deeper into the 9's cracking off a 9.66@146.19mph. 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 9.66@146.19mph. 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 transmission. Big thanks to everyone involved.
