Curious if anyone lives in the Inland NW - me I am in Spokane. Curious if anyone in the Inland NW area likes to track their Shelby. Spokane Co. Raceway Park has track day - today June 26th. There is another track day scheduled July 24. I plan to participate in this one.

Great deal - 85 dollars. Great way to use your HP and not receive any tickets.

I'm 9 hrs away by car in Montana, and not interested in drag racing the Shelby. Too scared of the worst case scenario of a wreck.

I'm in western Oregon and too wimpy to try and race. I do like road trips and twisty roads... Do you go to the Mustang Round Up in Bellevue in July ever? That's pretty fun and they do a track day at Monroe with the event.

Grew up in Spokane, I don't think the road course was there when I left, just the drag strip.

One of my high school classmates got into politics and was heavily involved in getting the track improved/renovated a few years back.

Sweet Home?! I'm just outside of Lebanon. Headed up to Calgary this weekend for the International Mustang Meet and am going to rack some miles on the Mustang.

Flight_83;

Have you gone Griggs yet?

Whose Bezel are you using for your brake cooling ducts?
No Griggs yet put its coming in the very near future. I'm going with the Watts link and torque arm setup first and full SLA sometime after. Right now I have Van's BMR setup in the back with adjustable UCA, LCA, panhard bar, and Tokico D spec front and rear with FRPP springs.

I'm actually running the legit KR brake cooling system that's discontinued. Had to be creative with the placement of the bezels and make it work but it's in and works as it should
