    1990 Mustang Coupe. I had an 88 LX and an 88 GT in the past. This one has a bit more $$ into it. The old LX ran 11.0x's with a stock bottom end motor. This one should be a little bit quicker.

    Those 87-93 Mustangs were easy to make go fast. Lots of weight reduction parts available too. Even the 60s years there are some pretty fast ones but seems most of the fast are in the 87-93 range. Lot of 351 blocks punched out to well over 400 cu. ins. I had an 88 that I modified to a 347 that ran 10.3s n/a.

    what kind of setup did you have on that 347? Thats some pretty good numbers. I am guessing it was a high compression solid roller motor with an auto.

    damn how did you get that thing down to 2300 lbs? Thats feather light! I have a 4,000 N20 converter in this one and I would love to get mine down that light but I just don't see it. The cage is added weight plus. I was hoping to get mine to 2800-3k race weight. It does have interior trim and a console. I don't want it to be a tin can race car. I take it you had full tubular front suspension and lexan or was it still glass windows? door bars? Bumper supports?

    The outside looked stock except for the wheels, Draglites, but I had everything removed that was not required for the 1/4 mile. I had every light weight component that could be bought. Inside it was completely gutted. Nothing left under the dash even. I could have lighten it more with a fuel cell. That 2320# was race weight (with me in it). Did have a 5 point roll bar.

    Definitely tubualar front suspension with QA1 coil overs and super light race brakes, etc., etc...

    yeah that QA1 stuff is pretty heavy too. I could only imagine how light it would be now. I still have stock brakes for the time being but I know I need to upgrade to something more heavy duty and light weight would be nice. I have a few ideas that I need to explore but I need to scale the car first to see what its weighing now.

    Sounding good Dru. There is a company in bacliff off of 646 close to 146 with a scale that is open to the public. I see the sign all the time and plan on taking my car there to weigh in.

    Yeah I need to take it down there and weigh it. I am curious how heavy it is. I am not going to fully gut this car as I think traction could be an issue.
