Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?


Recommended Posts

The track car now has race-spec solid engine mounts.

 

We stuck the good quality polybush ones on the daily and discovered that the main top engine mount had snapped clean in two.

 

No wonder there was a suspicious knocking.

 

Both cars are now noticeably better.

It's really simple people.   Scorch is right, the My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch! thread (although a great place to get out the stresses of the day) is very negative, let us celebrate the things that hav

I have no idea how they only managed to get 225hp from a 5 litre engine.

 

That said, the (modified) fox platform the car is on has great potential.

I can't help feeling you'd be better of with a stock mustang as a base car rather than the aftermarket convertible.

Today was bring the sledgehammer to work day as we've had a load of old kitchen gantries in our cellar for months and despite us messaging the other pubs in our area no one wanted them.

I will be the first to admit that American's are terrible at making an efficient engine back in the 80's. And the 5.0 can only take so much power before you have to do structual mods to the engine

 

We'll see on the Mustang.
