Streets of Willow – 6/8/2011

May 26, 2011

Sandy get his 1965 Mustang Fastback back to the track. The car had the motor repaired and a few other minor fixes and takes it out with the Los Angeles Shelby Club. The car runs well except for some diff fluid that got into the rear brakes due to a spin on an earlier run. Initial laps were on some 2002 date code Kumho Victoracer tires. Needless to say they were not so good due to the age. The video here is right after the tires were changed to Kumho V710’s and that seemed to make all the difference in the world. After lap and a half or so it goes full till. At the end of the video is the spin with each camera angle show (4 total). As always play loud.
