FINALLY, a little testing in my Fox!

5.0 Mustang Magazine's Project Shocker - Second Pass - YouTube

Some of you know that I have an '89 Fox which I'm building for NMRA True Street competition. Well, after 3.5 LONG years apart, I was finally able to make a couple of test passes at NMRA Bradenton last week. I didn't launch the car hard because it is a totally new combo so I need to make sure everything works before I try to make a hero pass. However, the car did run 155mph through the traps. I was pretty pleased with that. Now I'm going to make a few small tweaks and see just how far into the 8s we can push this hooptie.

Awesome car! I installed the upper & lower control arms and torque boxes on my 02 you suggested. Car is amazing now. IF I can get all the hiccups out it I might just get a time slip for this car. lol
