I have a vanity license with Voodo on it. I live in California and searched and searched for a combination that included some version of Voodoo.

@  2017Shelby526 : (24 August 2017 - 07:38 PM)

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:

 

Mustang GT350

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

230 MPH? That's insane.

 

Anyways, yes the hood does lift a bit above 100 but I think they mitigated the problem for the MY 2017. The fastest I went with mine was around 140 (on a racetrack) and it was barely noticeable.

I have a issue with my hood too. The drivers side fits almost perfectly ..... the passenger side where it meets the fende over the headlamp is a good 1/2 inch off ... higher ... 

 

I have the same concern if i get up to high speeds if I would have the issue too .

 

I am also afraid of having our body shop touch it for making things worse
