Hard to believe it's approaching the 5th model year for that platform. I still think of my Mystic as a "newer" Mustang. Still, with the same blower whine, even more power and Lightning-esque weight (4300 lbs + with driver/passenger?) I'm sure the GT500 is a hoot on track!

Yes I did.

Here is an video of my old mystic at VIR in '07. Playing with Chris in his CTS-V. To Chris's defense, I was on r-compounds, and he was on street tires

OK John, here's a short one from your old Mystic in my season finale at Summit. Chasing a Mustang Challenge FR500S running in AIX. Note his late braking from the Goodrich R1 tires and factory tuned aero.

http://vimeo.com/2211022

Lost a piece of the #1 intake valve. After tearing it down I discovered that I had also bent all the exhaust valves (and made new reliefs in the pistons) back in June at HyperFest when I hit 3rd gear instead of 5th. My severe distributor gear wear issue that I discovered after VIR in July was no doubt due to the strain of embedding bits of metal into the oil pump wall. Turns out the long metal shavings I was finding earlier in the year weren't from the cam thrust plate after all - the exhaust valve spring dampers had cut up the shims.

For this year I replaced the 10 year old Manley valves with Ferrea 6000 series and the similar vintage springs with stiffer Comps that should keep the valves away from the pistons at 7k rpm (in case I ever miss that shift again), plus I had the spring pockets cut for tool steel seats. Hopefully it'll be a long time before I have another motor related DNF.

Here's an in-car video clip from Monday 6/1/09 at Watkins Glen where I ran a 2:17 second lap on the full course




This was 2 seconds faster than my previous best. I have another clip I'm working on that has 2 consecutive laps averaging 2:16:50 seconds per lap. Not bad for 300 rwhp and 3710lbs with driver, IMHO

Here are some of my in-car video clips the NJMP / SCMC Event last week: Enjoy!


Here's another clip with 2 of my fastest consecutive 1:35:00 laps on Day 2. The car at the beginning of the clip (black Cobra, dark green rear bumper) is Jimmy Bost. He was nice enough to let me by.
