So if any of you know @101blur on Instagram he let me ride along in his car during his track session at Sonoma yesterday. His car is absolutely amazing. I got a POV video of the entire thing which I will upload later, it's edited but just needs to upload to YouTube which takes forever. But it seriously reaffirms why I want a coyote so badly.

That pic gives me a semi... I had better be sitting down and the kid asleep when I watch the vid...

So when is the Coyote swap beginning? You can make a 2V spin to 8k as well you know.

edit: Also if I didn't ask before, what are your transmission plans for this car? I know your 3650 is on its last legs but since you road race I'm going to assume you'll want a 6 speed for the 5th gear between 1:1 and OD? Only bad thing is that you lose the 3.37 first gear and have to choose between the 2.66 on the close ratio and 2.97 on the wide. There is always a 3650 with a road race 5th gear I suppose but then highway driving means you are whirring along at 65mph.

Close ratio T-56 with a set of 4.30s and Coyote swap or build the 2V to spin to 8K?

To get a 2v to spin to 8k and make power all the way up there it'll pretty much cost the same amount as swapping in a coyote lol. And nowhere as near badass, and the coyote will still have potential.

As for the transmission. Not entirely sure. The 3650 has pretty good ratios for road racing. And realistically i don't want to shift into 5th at all, so the T56 with the extra 5th or the 3650 with the road racing 5th won't really be ideal for me.

Besides, with a 26" tall tire, which is about average in size for most 18" road racing tires, and even just a 7500rpm redline which will be safe for a stock coyote, and the 4.10s i'll be able to go to 142mph in 4th (as per the calculation). When it all happens i can also decide whether or not to go to a 3.73 when i change to a T2R differential. That will put me at 156mph roughly in 4th. Not to mention if i eventually do the minor head work needed to hit 8k.

1st and 2nd gear will only mainly be used on the street anyway. The 3rd and 4th are what will be used most of the time at the track. Just need a sticky tire for the first 2 lol.


If the swap happens it won't be until at least after college. No money right now, and no DD. But hey, that means it'll be easier and cheaper to find the engines.

Oh and here is the video. Sorry about the wind noise..... BTW there is a spinout in the video. Not saying what car, or when it is. Gotta watch the entire thing lol



I don't know all the mods. But it has a Cobra Jet set up, Corsa exhaust (broke the sound limiter at redline, had to short shift in the higher gears), a lot of suspension. NT01 tires, and AED tune as far as i know. (Yes the hood is CF)

Looks like they may have been getting a little hot towards the end...

If your not planning for a Engine Swap for a Few years, then Forget the Coyote!.. Start saving now and get the VooDoo instead!.. Far more power and potential!..

They still haven't even said if it will be available as a crate engine. And good luck finding a used one of those.

THIS!!!
This is what you need to solve your understeer problem!
Just mount it on the front of your car, and it should provide sufficient down force.

I talked with the guys at the Maximum Motorsports booth for a while. They have a lot of ideas on the table for future products that should really change the game.

They also said no for a free K member to a broke college student lol.

No no no, all you need is the sideways pointed exhaust. That'll help rotate the rear end around whenever you give it gas in the middle of a turn

MM probably got a few new ideas from that pink and white Mustang.

Ok, here is something else that I noticed. Do you see how he has the thrust from his exhaust shooting out towards the left side of the car? That is undoubtedly to counter a pull to the right... Pure genius!

You need to have your exhaust thrust shooting straight down Andrew! That way, when you are getting back into the power coming out of the corners, the exhaust will lift up the back of the car, thus, putting more weight on the front tires for better grip!

Lol.
There is more to that car than meets the eye... I'll bet that it was one of the faster cars there!

They will!.. It's the only way Ford will be able to recoup any real cash they spent on R&D for that thing!.. Just wait a couple years at most!..

I think that the GT40 is a replica. It looks a lot like one that was for sale in Monterey about 20 years ago. If it is that same car, it is a VERY good replica, and it has been driven at the historical races by a number of well known drivers.

I doubt it was real, including the Daytonas. Doesn't matter, then again I'd probably not take a real one to a track with those other cars, that's just me.

That is one of the problems with owning authentic, rare cars. It takes a special breed of owner to risk a mishap on the track.
Although, Historical Auto Races are much like track days. They STRONGLY discourage overly aggressive driving, and if you ever, merely, spin out the car, it is HIGHLY unlikely that you will be invited back to participate next year.

That's what I meant. I'd take a real one to a historic track day in a heartbeat. Not some get together will a bunch of other cars. Plus I love the classics, and they belong with their kind, to me at least.

It probably is because it was for sale lol, and it did say replica.

No but I want to try to fit some lmao. They are 18x9 +30mm with 275s. Would like to fit 285/295s with a 10". But I will most likely have to raise it up a tiny bit for that.

Not going to be able to change the wheel set up for a while though. K member and Arms are next on the list hopefully.

I'm assuming the MM K kit with the forward offset arms right? That's probably the best kit out there although that Griggs setup is always lurking... but honestly, SLA is not needed unless you are shooting for some world record and even then some of the top recordholders are MacPherson cars so I dunno...

That looks damn good is that custom or ordered from somewhere without the gigantic *** stock style deflector on it? I love that bumper but its just too low for a street car IMO.

That's probably the best kit out there although that Griggs setup is always lurking... but honestly, SLA is not needed unless you are shooting for some world record and even then some of the top recordholders are MacPherson cars so I dunno...







That looks damn good is that custom or ordered from somewhere without the gigantic *** stock style deflector on it? I love that bumper but its just too low for a street car IMO.

Just the normal bumper but it's how they painted it. You can see the thick side part still, and the front air damn being shorter is a lot more common with aftermarket styles. I asked the owner and they said it's the Cervinis one. I'm still deciding between normal offset or forward offset also for the arms.

Well if you want the optimal handling forward is probably the way to go except you are shoehorning gigantor tires in there so I dunno. I know guys running 18x9s no issue with the forward offsets but not sure about a 285... I'd like to know myself because I am sticking with 285s all the way around on this beast.

Edit: Also that Cervini front does look damn good... giving me some ideas on mine like basically the same paint scheme except obviously silver replaces the white. Good thing I'm an hour from Cervinis' shop

Only thing I don't like is the cost of the bumper. $600

Eh yeah especially when a GT bumper is free on the car and a Mach lip is like $50. Still... the 99/01 Cobra style and the variants are easily the best looking.

Test fit my 18x10s up front. They fit, it's hard to say whether or not they would hit the fenders though. On full lock they hit the sway bar though.

So a slight spacer or steering rack limiters should fix the sway bar issue. Then more negative camber should fender issue.

The tire is a 285/35
