2011 Shelby GT 500 Autocross
Good Guys Car Show Autocross road course competition.
The cars handles so well in the curves , due to the SV Performance Package.
For this style of driving, it is best that you go without Traction
Control (Advancetrac) or it is just going to slow you down a little.
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.

Mike Maier of Maier Racing tears it up as the Goodguys Autoshow Autocross
event in his 66' Mustang. I
must say that it was a honor to ride in this car at this event with such a
talented driver. It was one hell of a ride that I'll never forget.
