    Took awhile to get the car dialed in, the transmisson is showing signs of failing on the 3-4 shift......with half a second to 3/4 of second slipping. Only happens at WOT. PH is working on it, to determine if a new tranny is needed or if its a bug in the way the transmission gets commands from the tune. Should know more in the week to come.

    Put the 75 shot on the car, cut a 1.5 60ft and despite the 3-4 shift hang, I was able to make up for it with an aggressive launch. Battery is dying on the laptop (still at FFW Norwalk) so more details to come. Here is the slip...

    I'm stoked. We think the car has 10.6's in it once we work out the transmission issues. Special thanks to PH and crew for all the work they did on the car. Buckman and Navbtcret for convincing me not to fear the bottle and Ranebowcyxx and Firestang70 for providing tips on mastering the launch.

    More to come for sure.

    Thanks BigCat, much appreciated. I'm not comfortable running again this hard till I have a cage though.

    way cool, wow, in the 10's. That is impressive. When you think about other engines at around 4-ish liters it's very believable. People talk about 3.4 liter Porsches, 3.6 liter Ferrari's, Audi RS6's and the like. But they can't imagine the 245 cu in Ford Mustang being a contender ? Good for guys like you chasing low ET's and big horsepower numbers.

    I don't have an accurate dyno sheet for the car as it sits in terms of HP and TQ due the TQ converter not locking up properly on the dyno. It's something I plan to address in the future however and to get some updated pulls.
