Road Race 67 Mustang

New for 2020! The Mustang is in the middle of a major overhaul. We are replacing the entire suspension and braking system and documenting the build on our YouTube channel. Check out the build playlist here: Road Race 1967 Mustang Build.

After running numerous track days and time trial events with the AutoXandTrack 68 Camaro it was time to get something a little more serious.  The Camaro will always be a pro touring street car with all of the compromises thereof.  This Road Race 67 Mustang is all about track time and safety with no compromises made for streetability.  Outside of the Optima Ultimate Street Car events this will be the defacto road course car for AutoXandTrack.  We will be using this for track days, time trial events, wheel to wheel racing and autocross. You might also see it do some other events.  Initially, this car will be raced with the Vintage Auto Racing Association with an eye towards making it legal for NASA American Iron.

After getting the car back together from doing a complete refresh of the motor and took it to an Autocross to shake it down. And promptly broke it. This kicked of the v2.0 build in 2020. The focus of this build is the complete pro touring suspension from TCI Engineering. While we are at it, we are adding bigger and better brakes from Wilwood Disc Brakes and bigger and lighter forged wheels from Jongbloed Racing Wheels.

Most of the below pics of the Mustang are from that fateful day.  Taken by my friend Arlo of Aseyeseethings.
