Hey all!

I'd tell ya what DPR8 stands for...but it's more fun to let your imagination figure that one out! :D Maybe later in the thread. I am going to make several posts to tell the story with pictures, product info etc., so you get what we did and went through, piece by piece as much as I can. So expect a few shorter posts, some just pictures and info. We are building these cars now, can get you parts, etc...so hop on the story here and follow us.

Anyway...we started this build about 4 months before we ever got the car...with some heavy planning. We got the car New Years Eve 2015 and began acquiring parts as they became available, many before they were available, and some custom made for us so we could progress with the project.

The goal of this project was to build a 2015 Mustang, fully loaded, daily driver, track and drag mix, cruiser, and all around bad ass car that didn't have to be garaged and was fully streetable...without engine internals being touched, no nitrous, but still hittin that 800+WHP threshold, and then some. It's a manual with Performance Pack and 373 gears.

This is how we started
1st pic is a nice aerial view....just kidding
2nd pic is the actual car...and its mini-me:

So, as most do, we started with a conservative drop of Eibach's with new rims and tires. Forgestar F14's in dark bronze rally set the car off.

In later pictures, you'll also see we finally settled on 325/30/19 tires in the rear and 295/30/19 up front...with more drop...big feet!

Then the parts start rolling in between February and May as they are shipped as soon as they are ready...and they just kept coming...soon, they stopped coming in and we we finally could schedule getting the car build started.

Made a few changes here and there....but August was a big month in our spare time...lol...yea right...spare time...;)
