    I may be moving to Greenville soon.. Will I have to become a Gamecock fan???

    Anyway sure, living in Northern VA, any performance car is the wrong car.

    But I hit the track over the weekend and now I understand why the power curve us where it is. Road Course and how the power meets the road
    is different than Drag Racing. I don't race on the street or even exceed 80 mph.. in VA thats and automatic Reckless driving ticket. and where
    I Live there is a Leo every 20 feet. in one day I got pulled over twice for not having a front plate on the car.. I looked at him and said really, would you drill holes in that bumper???? he said YUP. it's that Law... I had to purchase a no drill hide a plate mechanism.

    There is no reason why the GT350 would not be a good drag race car. It just needs a little chassis tuning and more rear gear in it. I haven't run the numbers, but I would think that with the 8,000 rpm red line that at a minimum a 4.56 would be called for. As always tires would be a major factor.

    Possible but I am getting older and I can't cut any good lights anymore, my reaction time sucks.
    and Drag Racing is so hard on the car.
    I have been through 2 rear ends, a 5R55S Trans, 2 Torque Converters, Upper and lower Control arms / Bushings.
    Engine and Trans mounts and a Driveshaft.

    I understand. When I was younger I’d just dump the clutch and think nothing of it. Now I just can’t bring myself to inflict that kind of punishment on this car.

    Putting 100+ Octane fuel in the GT350 does’t do anything if anything it is slower as there isn’t a fuel Octane sensor that adjusts the timing for different fuel’s like a flex fuel vehicle has. Because higher Octane fuels are more resistant to detonation because they take longer to ignite and burn the 350 is actually slower with it the tune is for 91 Octane because of California. There is an amazing product called PROFLEX Commander for Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R (Voodoo) it actually piggy backs onto the cars fuel injectors and adds a real Octane/fuel reader to adjust the vehicle if you wanted to run fuel like E80 or E85 or any ethanol blend and helps way better than a regular tune. It retail’s for around a thousand I seen it on YouTube on Woman.Driven check it out.

    Yea man the proflex commander seems to be an awesome addition without worry to your factory warranty. Since there is no 93 octane out west, when I move I think I'm going to pick this up. I just read about it on there website and watched women.driven you tube videos on it and it seems great. Plus it does a better job of getting you your true read out of ethanol and seems to put out more horsepower then the traditional lund tune.
    Definitely an awesome awesome product it seems.
