Newbie makes a smokin'deal
Hey gang,my name is Craig.I live in the NE Ga mountains(think Tail of the Dragon).I have done SCCA racing in the past and have done 12 Lemons/Chumps races in the past 5 years.I have tired of motorcycles,so began searching for a track car.After months on Craigslist and forums,I stumbled on to a 95 SVT Cobra,set up for track.The owners(father and son) had bought the car new,and are ex Ford engineers from Dearborn.The PO had started to build for a Chump car but the team disbanded,2 babies showed up,and the wifes minivan needed garage space! LOL
The car has too much to list here,but... Motor has been built to approx 375 hp(estimated).Edelbrock Victor heads and intake,Trickflow 75mm TB,10.5 to 1,Crane cam,headers,etc... Interior has been gutted with just a Corbeau race seat,Perrsonal wheel,and Schroth 5 point belts.
Cobra brakes with Hawk pads.Kenny Brown subframe connector and strut brace,camber plates,Tokiko adjustable coilover up front,Cobra anti roll,etc... Professionally built roll cage (to race spec)
The motor is a beast,but the suspension will need some tuning.The Cobra brakes are good but not great. I will be checking in here for advice,as this is the first Mustang I have owned since a 67 fastback back in the 80's( yes,I am old).Here is the best thing...it is street legal!! I am really looking forward to a track day at Road Atlanta in a couple months!! I will absolutely have to put better performance tires on before that.
I bought the car,with a 16'dovetail open car trailer,for less than 6K! I have every receipt from the build,and boxes of original parts that came off the car.I thought it was an awesome deal.Thoughts?
