    At least you still have a local track for you to run. Ours closed this year. :(

    Thanks, the beast is a lot of fun to drive. I was playing with my shift points and my launch rpm. I just can't get enough of the sound, I love how it sounds rowing through the gears :)

    How about a break down of your mods?

    Took my Mustang to the track last week. (5.0 Auto) My best, and first run, was a 13.07 @ 109mph. Bone stock except for a K&N Air filter. Had a lot of fun, I'm so glad Island Dragway reopened.

    ;)

    I have been racing for a few years now. I also have a 66 Mustang I take to the track. There is a BIG difference in feel between the 66 and the 13. Even thought the 66 is slower, it's more fun.

    Awesome, love the early mustangs :)
    I would imagine that the 66 is more involved to drive. More noise and alkyl that. Mine is getting to the point where it's hard to get more time out if it. Working on the driver mod :)
