Eventually I'll get some video. As I said, the current tires are letting loose through the 1st 4 gears and my budget is spent, so depending on how soon some of the old stuff sells, it could be a few months before I can get some grippy tires. I do plan on getting video of the october mojave mile. But should be able to get some soon of cruising around town to show how tame it really is in normal traffic.

Well, we all know you're never done. In prep for the mojave mile/magnum event next weekend (10/12-10/13) there were a few things that I felt needed to be addressed.
Brakes were high on the list since I should be going much faster and the format for the magnum leaves less space to slow down, went with the Ford Racing M-2300-S kit & some slotted rotors, also had the rear calipers painted black to match the front Brembo calipers.



Cooling was another issue, I hadn't experienced any overheating, but the coolant temp would climb pretty fast while in boost and the stock radiator is pretty thin. I went with the CSF radiator that Steeda is selling as a drop-in replacement, it wasn't quite drop-in in my case due to clearance issues with the intake pipe, but with a couple tweaks to mounting it's in there.


And I've had issues with the rear end spitting up oil at high speed, so I went with some active cooling there, using the 2013+ GT500 finned diff cover along with a pump/temp sensor/relay, and oil cooler. should take care of that issue.


There were a few other thinks like a driveshaft safety loop, harness mount points, and some serviceability tweaks, but don't have any pix of those.

Car is at the body shop right now due to a hit & run near the beginning of September (someone went wide while turning around and plowed into the front of the car damaging the splitter, bumper, hood & grill), they say they'll be finished on Monday, I go to get some stickier tires on Tuesday. It's cutting a lot closer to the event that I would have liked, but it looks like it will work out.
