I am planning to put my car on the track at Thunder Hill in late April. Does anyone know where to get specific information on how to configure the car for track use? I haven't been able to find any detailed info on line.

Hi Charlie,
Are you driving a Track Pack or R model? Coolers are recommended when tech or base models are run at the track- see your Shelby Owners Manual Supplement. Also included in Owners Manual is info on front end alignment settings for the track. Other recommendations depend on what kind of track event you want to do. Beware - FP has pretty much said don't expect more than 8-10 minutes on a hot day in a non-cooled GT 350 before limp mode.

Thank,
I did buy the 350 std with track pack, so i should be good on that... I have looked at the GT 350 supplement book and it doesn't say much, just how to make each of the functions change. I normally run in Sport mode, once i get to the track i will try the Track Mode setting....

thanks,

Charlie

Hey Charlie,
You'll find front end settings for track use in your owners manual packet.
Have fun!

As mentioned by another reader, there are recommendations for alignment setting for the track in the information provided with the car on a separate sheet. Then of course they tell you to return to the factory setting when you return to the street. Guess I will need an alignment machine to keep going back and forth.
I also read (I thought it was in the GT350 supplement, but can't find it) a recommendation to add an oil-air separator. Steeda has one (part number M-6766-A505) for $179. As any one read the same thing and have you put one on the car?

Certainly couldn't hurt CD. You still get moisture in the oil during normal operation.

During the process of venting crankcase pressure back through your intake track, large amounts of oil, in the form of vapors, intake tube, intake manifold runners and even dilute your gas, lowering its octane level. This happens on all engines and is even worse with forced inducted vehicles (supercharged and turbocharged) as crankcase pressures are increased.

Hey Tank
I thought you were through salt crap but you got some crap yesterday ??
Clancy
And we're supposed to get more tonight :(
My wife and I have lived up here for about 14 years now and have found that many of the snow storms we get are not predicted or reported on the news. Every time the town drops salt, it's via a cement truck size chute down the center of the road. I think I'll be good to go when that clears after a good rain or two.

The Steeda part is from Ford Racing Parts. Ford listed it for more than the $179. I will have to broaden my search again
thanks

Also, FPP Engineer has announced release of oil separators specifically designed for the GT350 along with plans for other performance parts. I'll post a link if I get permission from the forum Admins.
