  1. ROYAL CRIMSON S550 MUSTANG THREAD

    Here's one from after an autocross a few weeks ago. I like the dark gray forged Roush wheels, but the 19x11 Apex EC-7s looks pretty good, too. I've really been enjoying the car. In a year and 4 months I've got the mileage up to 20k. A good sized chunk of that was to events at Gingerman...
  2. SCCA CAM-C Thread

    I can tell you from personal experience that a 750hp tune results in rarely using full throttle, even with 305s all the way around. A more highly developed suspension might help some, but there's only so much traction. I can also tell you it's a lot of fun to try to get as much out of it as you...
  3. Autocross/daily driver questions

    I'm at 0 toe and -2.7 camber with my setup and I never change it. I've driven it from Kansas to Idaho on 275 street tires and regularly drive it 2 hours to autocrosses with my 305 RT660s. It drives fine. It's no more twitchy that my '09 Focus. The biggest negative I've had so far is that the...
  4. Heartland Motorsports Park Autocross

    There's a regularly scheduled autocross for the Kansas Region SCCA at Heartland Park that Sunday, so I'll plan on being around that weekend. If you put something together then I'll look at joining in. The KRSCCA event is part of the Sunflower showdown series, so there will be people there from...
  5. Roush Wheels Rubbing w/o Steering Stop Kit?

    I don't know that I can answer your question, but my '18 Roush rims actually are tighter to the strut than my 19x11 Apex rims. Just because an 11" wide rim worked for them, I wouldn't assume that the 9.5" rim works. The difference in backspacing/offset may be enough to keep it from working...
  6. What oil are y’all running?

    Here's another one for O'Reilly's ship to home on Motorcraft 5W50. They almost always have a percentage off code for purchases over $100 (or similar dollar amount). My last purchase was 20% off of their usual $8.99/quart. I usually just get a case of it plus a few other things like filters to...
  7. If your mustang was a beer what would it be?

    Dragon's Milk. Really smooth, but if you're not careful it'll kick your butt. It's even from Michigan.
  8. Supercharger & Street Tires for daily, worth it?

    I've had my first supercharged car for a few days over a year now ('18 w/ 750hp Roush tune). Until you floor it, it drives pretty much like any other Mustang. You do have to be careful with it, but to say it's undrivable is hardly the case. You have to learn to modulate the throttle if you're...
  9. Traction control experience with the new Supercharger.

    When I autocross I have to unplug that plug. Early on I tried just the track mode and disabling the traction control, but it still activated and wouldn't let me make any sort of a run. Traction control interacts all the time with the supercharger. I thought my street tires had pretty decent...
  10. Question for guys who actually have the the Roush Kit

    Thanks for the reply. That's what I was thinking, but wanted to make sure. I assume it's supposed to be disconnected, as there is no IMRC in the supercharger manifold.
  11. Question for guys who actually have the the Roush Kit

    Does anyone know what the blue connector is for? This is at the back of the engine taken from the passenger side and looking toward the centerline of the car.
  12. The clutch is so much different than the s197 IMO

    That ought to be a nice ride. I switched almost immediately from the points system to a Duraspark system when I got the 68 running. I eventually took the next step of using an ignition box (Crane HI-6) in place of the Duraspark controls. It's worked very well for a long time. The points are...
  13. The clutch is so much different than the s197 IMO

    The clutch is lighter on my '18 than on my '08 by quite a bit. The clutch in my '68 is significantly lighter than either of them (diaphragm style). I grew up with nearly everything being manual, so I'm used to things feeling different from one vehicle to another. Right now my daily driver is...
  14. Perceptions of Middle-age Men in Mustangs

    I've had a pony car of some sort since I was 15. We took my Cougar out nearly every weekend to cruise main when I was in high school. I had exactly ONE female say "nice car, can I have a ride". She happened to have a '69 Cougar, so I'm still not sure if that counts. Lots of guys my dad's age...
  15. MISCHIEVOUS PURPLE S550 MUSTANG Thread

    I like it. It'll be interesting to see them in direct sunlight. I'm sure lots of people will think it's black. Heck, I've had people think my Royal Crimson and especially DHG '08 Bullitt were black when the sun starts to set. I'd be alright if they keep Royal Crimson as a 2018 only color. I...
  16. Autocross/daily driver questions

    I was skeptical of the slip on spacers until I found out professional race teams are using the slip on spacer setup regularly. I would never even consider using the bolt on ones, even on a street-only car. I've driven my 305 setup to multiple autocross events at 300+ miles round trip and never...
  17. Question for guys who actually have the the Roush Kit

    I think my issue goes back to the 700hp/phase 1 tune the car came with. I've had several people on this forum say that it's a relatively common occurrence. I was hoping that they'd replace both of them when I took it in for the first one, but unsurprisingly they did a "fix as fail" on it. I...
  18. Question for guys who actually have the the Roush Kit

    I've contemplated getting the max cooling kit, and probably will at some point. I'm not sure I could handle cutting holes in the fenders for the vents, though. On another note, after dealing with a P0430 and getting it fixed under warranty, my car just threw a P0420. Looks like I'll be headed...
  19. Autocross/daily driver questions

    I wonder how good the FR3A suspension system would be. I have the S197 version on my '08 Bullitt and have been very happy with it. They show that it has been standard equipment on the Shelby Super Snake and Hertz cars. It seems to get pretty good reviews. I'm tempted with the Shelby/Penske...
  20. Autocross/daily driver questions

    I haven't actually changed the camber trackside yet. All you need to do is get the weight off of the front end, loosen the 3 top nuts and put the camber where you want it. That's how I got it set before getting the final adjustments done at an alignment shop. It was really pretty easy. I'm...
