Re: Are suspension upgrades worth the cost?

Some of us here have changed to coil over and tubular control arms and other suspension changes. I used a system from Street or Track with Bilstein labeled shocks made by Race Car Dynamics along with Flexform composite mono-leaf springs, Wilwood brakes, and Unisteer rack and pinion steering. All the...

Re: Exhaust Options

My 1969 Cougar has a 351 Cleveland which the previous owner installed. I had a set of long tube headers from Doug's installed but they didn't clear the R&P steering system I installed. They are available for sale if you're interested. Ceramic coated (silver polished finish). I now have a set of Sand...

Re: Disc brake conversion / is this doable ?

I gotta chime in for Street or Track here. Owner knows and races vintage Mustangs and has a great reputation amongst the track guys. Great guy and solid support. Can recommend them highly enough!

I can heartily recommend Street or Track here. I bought all my suspension and brakes from Shaun. Great guy, true vintage Mustang racing focus and great support.

Re: 13" Modern Mustang or Wilwood brakes?

I can’t speak to the conversion kits you are considering but I will advise to stay away from drilled rotors to avoid cracking. Slotted are fine just not drilled.

I was pleased that they used an FE on the stand in the dyno scene. That could have been an easy scene to drop in an SBC.

The three of us enjoyed the movie. I thought Damon did a good job as Shelby and Christian Bale was brilliant as Ken Miles. I was looking for oddities and they were minimal to me. I did see the 17” wheels on the Cobra coupe on the upper level of the car carrier in the hanger. The comments about conve...
