It is a lot of fun isn't it. Nice job.

I notice most people set the D-specs so many turns from full hard because we know where that is. But where is full soft? I was under the impression (manual?)...

First track day? Helmet, tire pressure gauge, torque wrench. Period.
If you feel the need to bleed the brakes, do this prior to the track day. Tire pressures 34 to 36 pounds.

How about taking the corner a little slower? Even with the mods offered, the Mustang will most likely understeer eventually at the limit in any case. Far better than modding the car with too much...

What about the Recaro/Ford seats available on the Boss 302. Nice bolsters and probably wire right up with the electrical seats and all.

With the 2011 just be careful when you come out of reverse and select first that you are not still in reverse. Had that happen a few times. Make sure lever has popped up.

Good. Make sure with them. Many of their after-market wheels will not go over the Brembos even if they are styled similarily to the Shelbys. Also realize now that you will not have a spare for the...

Thanks DPE and Ansibe for the info. Believe I'll go with the cooling hoses when I get the CS front fascia and see how it goes.

I am getting the Brembos this year on the 2011 GT. I am pretty easy on the brakes so don't expect any cooling issues. Like the idea of saying "Brembos" and the looks. Up in the air on the cooling...

Why won't it void your waranty? You will have to remove the intake and tune when it goes to the dealer, the same as the others.

If you want a warranty, have the FRPP tune installed by your dealer....

If you drive hard, it's not uncommon for the rears to wear first due to traction and stability controls coming into play. Often the rears are being applied while the power may still be on.
