    Hello my name is Matt. I'm your above average speed freak that spends ton's of money on trying to go just a little faster than the next guy. After 11 years,14 fox body mustangs,2 lightnings and 2 cobra's I gave my wife a rest when I traded in my 08 gt500 on this truck. I shocked pretty much everyone I know when I did it but, you gotta change this up sometime. I'm looking to lift the truck at least 3" and put some tims and tires on it soon. I have been to the beach twice and still haven't had to use the 4wheel drive. Any mod info would be great since i know nothing about trucks.


    Matt

    Welcome to the board. I ust to have a Mustang but my lifestyle does not allow me to not have a truck.
    I did the same thing making my GT as fast as I could. I have plans in the future to build a 67 Cobra replica with a 4 valve but that wont be for a while.

    Is this your car?? I took the pic last year right by Memorial Park. It had exhaust on it. This was the first GT500 I saw and had to get some pics of it.

    The best my 03 lightning ran was a 12.8 @108mph. I ran 11.6 @ 122 in my shelby a few times before the transmission let go. Here is a pic of my old car.

    they weren't getting deleted, they just had to be approved first. Unfortunately, I don't think they should be directly linked to because they promote street racing
