Both of your cars run good the cougar and your 86 T-Bird hope my XR7 gets out to the track next year with a few more mods.

I have UPR Pro Launch Kit on the rear
Upper,Lower and Anti Rollbar. I bought Lakewood 50/50's for the
rear. I have the old stock struts on the frt. I have strut limiters on the frt. No frt sway bar and no rear sway bar.

Hope this helps. Good Luck

That little scoop looks like it will clear my tfs intake, whats the height and width of that? if you don't mind me asking where you pick it up at it doesn't look that bad for a bolt-on scoop.

The car normally 60ft's 1.49 that launch there was a 1.47

The car sets low, I just installed the the Fox lenght shock off a stang.

Could let her go, so I just put her in my storage building and pulled her out and put her back together. My wife and oldest son want to
bracket/heads up race it next year. I'm just trying to get all the bugs out for them.

The hood scoop is a Boss 429 for a '70 Boss 429 stang.

I can get some measuremnt of the scoop if you need.

Very nice ride, question how do think a mickey thompson dragradial 255 50 16 would compare to a a true 26 10 15 slick?

Thanks

I like the drag radial for stablity. My turbo car walks around ALOT
on slicks. I didn't have the dr this summer when I was runnig the
turbo car. But I will try them on it in the spring. In the 1/4 mile the
turbo car runs 135+ MPH and that is no fun when the slick walk around. The N20 car has the same 60ft on DR's as the Slick.
But they are 2 totally diffrent cars.
I guess that made it clear as MUD. LOL

The fuel door is for a mustang(bullit) fits fairly well

The car is a '87 XR7 and the mirrors are from a Tempo

Thanks for the kind words

Nice run! You've got two hellified Cougar's there dude!

I'll vouch for the drag radials being stable at high speed.

For sure,

I want to get the turbo car to hook on the same size drag radial
next spring.
Just signed up for Pinks ALL OUT in Memphis for May 2009
