I'm actually setting it up for open track now. Ordered my super light wheels and slicks last week. Got my konis and other suspension goodies on there and swapped out the auto trans for a tremec magnum XL 6 speed, double disc clutch and aluminum flywheel.

Check these out-18x10's and only 22 pounds each.
That's the lightest wheel in this price range.
You have to spend double the money to save 1 or 2 more pounds.
Super light, super strong and super sweet. I love them.

yes, that was rather cryptic, but I know what you are saying and that's correct. These days though everything has plenty of caster.
You just have to match them up with enough split to negate road crown.

Nice looking wheels.
I saw a Mustang at PIR (Portland International Raceway) that had 18x11's both front and rear.........the offsets were different............didn't use any spacers and looked really sharp. I asked who made them and the jerk just said he had them specially made.......sure he did...............at Vorshlag.

Hahaha....these are 10's all the way around and they fit perfect.
And probably cheaper.

Although I've never touched any of the Vorshlag special built F14's they do only weigh 22.8lbs and they are 18x11" front and rear. The price is $360 each.

Thats not too bad, an inch wider and 7/10th of a pound heavier and only 30 bucks more.
Are they forged or flow formed?

They are Forgestar F14's that are built for Vorshlag with their specific "secret" offset.............different front and rear.

Custom fit 18x11 set of Forgestar F14s - Vorshlag LLC

Thunderhill is where I cut my teeth and recieved my license. Ran a couple of national events there..................all before they expanded the track. The track is owned by San Francisco SCCA and is one of the most forgiving road tracks in California.................a lot more than Sears Point and Laguna Seca...............yes, I still call them by their old names..................dislike the new names.
I still carry my drivers suit/helmet/shoes/Nomex underware in the back of the Mustang.........................never know when it may come in handy.
Are you going to do some track time at Thunderhill?

Looks like this thread kinda got high jacked. So anyways I contacted a shop who says they can do my alignment. Should I have them just align the car to factory specs or should I give them specific parameters? If so what parameters?

Again, what is the main purpose of the your Mustang?..............if its for the street and occasionally hit the strip I'd just go with the OE setting........................as long as the caster falls within 6.4 degrees minimum to 7.9 degrees maximum positive and camber is -1.5 degrees minimum to 0.00 degrees maximum with a toe of 0.00 degrees minimum to 0.20 degrees maximum per side.
If the shop has a good person doing the alignment I'd ask the person for a suggestion................hopefully they can give you one.

I don't remember what tires you run on the street and when you are carving corners as I have mine setup at 7.8 degrees caster on both front wheels, -1.2 degrees on the left front for camber and -1.6 degrees on the right front. My toe in is at 0.10 per side or 0.20 total...............
The car handles great carving corners with these settings and my F1's show no uneven wear in 2000+ miles.................I was hoping to wear them out sooner and get some Michelin's.

In your case, I would have them align the front end to within the factory settings.
