I got to attend the 2017 Runway challenge at the Mojave Air and Space Port for some timed runs up to 1.5 miles. I had not entered the event, but the event organizers (really cool dudes) said "we don't have any mustang representation," why don't you wheel that Shelby up and we'll give you a number. Hell yes!!!!!
But, I had this problem: the hood has an aerodynamic flaw: at speed, it lifts up at the outer edges. I actually had a photographer come up and show me the pictures - there was clearly a 1-2" gap between the hoods and fenders. This seems like a design flaw. Any one else experienced this?
Here are the runs:
Ferrari 458 Italia (event organizer let me drive his Ferrari. First time in a Ferrari and I do 188!
My buddies 2017 GT (he eventually went 203mph)
Wild 1000hp 2005 twin turbo GT
