Next was tuning!! A Mustang dyno was used with an impressive result of 451.1whp and 421.1Torque @ 28psi!! What an achievement for all the hard work!! We were all very pleased.
Finally TRACK DAY!!! We went to the Texas World Speedway and used the 1.8 mile course running clockwise. After 4 sessions that were 25 minutes long, the car was perfected! Excellent brakes, superb balance on the suspension and good progressive power band. We were doing as much as 153mph on the straights and finally going into the high 1.12:xx compared to the corvettes on the track that were running low 1.15:xx.
We are on schedule and ready for the NASA TT in Aug. 12th-13th @ Thunderhill Raceway Park for our debut.
CHECK BACK FOR THE RESULTS OF THE NASA TIME TRIALS!!!!
