    Something isn't making sense about 770 horsepower and the high 12s at 110 mph performance numbers for a 5750 lb. race weight.

    113 MPH traps would be more like it.

    It seems to be about 70 horsepower shy.

    Hmmmm...

    Without knowing the DA on race-day, it's all hyperbole.

    It's not your fault and as mentioned before, you are forced to live upside-down compared to North-Americans and it can make you think/say funny things. ;)

    How is your truck coming along??

    After 17 years I had to replace my Hood Struts.
    That's all I have done to mine so far this year.

    Pretty exciting stuff, I know.

    Those little 5.0L really crank!!

    I'm not Ford bashing but when I watch or hear about their Shelby Trucks racing a TRX, it shouldn't be as close a race as it is. Just sayin'...

    On a side note, the TRX does SO many things very well and the F-150 Shelby was designed more single-purpose than the Mopar.
