I have pretty much built this car from the ground up. It started out in a million pieces sitting on woodblocks with no interior, no motor/transmission, no wheels, etc. It's been through 4 sets of wheels, 2 motors and gone from a stripped out shell to a full interior, fully working A/C, 340whp machine. This car has dominated the local import drag scene along with my buddy's KA-T 240SX. It's been a very fulfilling experience receiving tips and suggestions from members here on Acurazine as well as being able to share how the car has progressed from a piece of junk to a 11sec 1/4mile car. Seeing how this month is free for all, I'd figure I'd give it a shot and see how it does. Thanks!

Real Name: Bill D

Car Model: 2009 Shelby GT500 Convertible


Engine: Steeda Stage II (2.7" s/c pulley, auxiliary idler, 113mm MAF/CAI, 91 octane tune), L&M dual 66mm throttle-body, Lethal X-pipe with high flow cats, Ford Racing 3.73 rear-end gears, AFCO dual fan heat exchanger, Reische 170* thermostat, JLT catch-cans.
Chassis: Ford Racing lowering springs, Steeda adjustable panhard bar, J&M upper control arm, J&M lower control arms with relocation brackets, DSS 3.5" aluminum driveshaft, Toyo 315/35-18 drag radial on widened (by Weldcraft) 18 x 10.5" stock wheels.
Appearance:CDC lightbar, CDC sequential tail lights, True Forged heat exchanger tank, Moroso coolant tank, JLT battery cover, JLT master cylinder cover, JLT strut covers, "Red Stripe" emblems, "GT500" billet fuel door.

Reason: I have no real brand, or type, loyalty and have owned a number of performance oriented cars over the years - domestics, imports, inline 4's, V6's, V8's, have tried them all, and enjoyed them all at the time I owned them. But while I like all cars that have at least a decent ability to get out of their own way, I do have a preference for those with a healthy V8 driving the rear wheels. It's the soul-stirring sound, if nothing else, it gets in your blood! So, I find myself again behind the wheel of a rwd car, with a healthy V8 up front, and a decent ability to get out of it's own way. I'm also a big fan of drag racing, so with the car now in the high 11's at 120+mph trap speeds, I'm aiming for 10's and 130's in the coming season with a new larger supercharger and supporting mods. All in 100% street trim on 91 octane.

And like Josh mentioned above, to help out the site with another entry.
