    I work on this car daily, and i know it pretty intimately :naughty:. for those of you that have the speed channel, check out our last race at mid ohio this Sunday the 11th at 11:00am, we'll be the #51 Mustang leading the race for the first half until alot of small things go wrong. :wtc: if you do watch, i'm the guy changing the rear tires on the pit stop.

    Sweet, but why the fake headlights? Do they really weigh that much?

    who knows, not my call, i think its a waste of time becuase they're made of plastic and dont weigh that much. plus every time it rains we have to switch back to the real ones. the only thing that they are nice for is when you wreck, its one less thing you have to replace.

    The back wheels looks small to me. :dunno: Are they staggered for going around the track? I don't know anything about the Grand Am Cup or the track you're running on this weekend. If it's a dumb question bust my balls.

    we were running 7th i think before our driver tried to out break a bmw :uh:
    the bmw hit the front left tire and broke the tie rod, so it was race over for us. if you watch the race they should show it.

    as far as the rear wheel being smaller, no. they're both 18"s, the rears may be as slightly inset as an 1/8" overall, but i doubt you'd be able to tell that from the photos. i think its just the angles.

    Watched the race yesterday on Speed. That car has nutz under the hood, too bad about the DNF.

    Sorry, missed you on the pitstop.

    BTW, what rims are you running? Those would look killer on my street car.

    when the car came in, we were running jongbloeds 18"s (pronounced youngblood), and when the car left we were running 18" Fikse's, (which strangly is pronounced exactly like it looks: fixy) the only problem is they're racing wheels which means they're light, around 17-20lbs each i think, and a set will run you a little over 3k.
