Im gonna try to break the mustang tomorrow
#1
For the first time in over 15 years, planning on driving 100 miles to the nearest 1/4 mile track tomorrow and thrash on the mustang there and drive back.
I race it often near the house but only 1/8 mile tracks, dont know what she will do. Im thinking over 100 at the end of the track. Sounds a little scary, wish me luck.

Go for it! Live dangerous again! I used to do that in the 70 with a lot more car than I have now.I would put one slick in the trunk with my tool box and one slick in the back seat.Drive 75 miles one way to the track,run all night and then hit the blvd on the way home.I never even thought about breaking. "Young and Dumb"!
Now I have a brand new 1/4 mile track six miles from my shop door and I will tow there! I never thought I would say it but I seem to have more fun at the 1/8 mile track 30 miles from my house.I just feel more at home there.Only been to the new track 3 times.I plan to go there more this year and get comfortable with it.
Good luck and have a great time!!!
