Yeah we are kinda looking for property in TN--KY now. The only thing that kinda sucks but kinda not is that we need at least 30 acres due to us having horses.

Hey Chris,
The Stang looks really nice. Let us know what she does at the track.

Beast,
I have been to Byron but never ran there, I try to get to Midstate down in Havana at least a couple of times a year.

That is a nice ride Chris.

I recommend the biggest, stickest slick you can get under the fenderwell, dont even mess around with a drag radial - them 460's are scary fast in a mustang, be careful.

What is the gearing and converter stall?

Its has 4:30 gears on a spool and a TCI 3500 stall. I put a set of BFG Drag Radials on it just for the street but plan on buying a spare set of rims with some good drag slicks over the winter so I can take it to the track in the spring.

Hell I cant wait till this weekend....lol

Living in the deep south has it's privilages, we race round here till late November, then fire things back in early march, you better have your ducks in a row in the off season, not much downtime.


That is a good looking mustang with a stout motor Chris, you should be proud even if your a die hard chevy man, drive it like you stole it I say.


Keep us updated,
