    HPDE at Sebring with Chin Track Days

    Video of my car on the Mustang Dyno at Five Bar Motorsports. The video starts out blurry, but comes back into focus. It was at a "Dyno Day," so there were people gathered. I didn't hear the "woo" from the crowd the first time :cheers:.

    3.73 FRP Ring & Pinion was installed this week, with the rear end rebuilt with carbon friction plates. OP has been updated. The friction plates made a big difference in how the power is transferred to the wheels, and the closer gearing is a lot better in traffic. 500 mile breakin period, though, so no hard launches or acceleration for now. I'm already 100 miles into it.

    Planning on going back to Sebring in November. Want to do the brakes and brake fluid before then.

    I love the colour! One of my favorite reds for a car. I'm not normally a fan of black wheels but it seems to fit this car really well. I'm also a bit of a Mustang fan. Especially the late 60s and this new shape that looks like the old ones.
