    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.

    As there is a worldwide shortage of aluminum (???), I wasn't able to have Wilson build me an Intake.
    I sourced a semi-local guy and it is still an ongoing project/adventure.
    I haven't had much spare time for the truck but the Intake is the last piece of the naturally-aspirated puzzle and I've found patience I never knew I had.

    Truck is slow at the moment. Some parts have arrived and so maybe next week it will get a kick along. Fibreglass deck lid is off sanded back so all those annoying little gas bubbles are gone from the resin. There were some tired parts of paintwork so I said do it all properly. It is too good to patch. Then it will be off to get some Plum Purple asshole stripes (as we call them). He has a computer set up the truck goes in, so if the color looks shite we can try others until we like it. Then make them. Maybe end of June. 6 months punishment. Serves me right. Never done anything like that in 45 years.

    Ronnie are you referencing the Ford F150 Shelby Baja Edition. One pulled up nest to me I mean its a serious beast with 2 spares tied down in the bed. Fella told me dropped over 130k plus. I guess you pay more to go fast.

    A.F.A.I.K. it is simply called Shelby F-150 (no off-roading equipment).

    They come with either a N.A. 5L or a supercharged 5L version at 400 HP and 770 HP respectively.

    A buddy up here in Kanada bought a Tesla Plaid. My first thought was...why?
    When he told me he paid $190,000 for it I had other thoughts.
    Yours for $130,000 (with dual duals) is a great deal. :)

    Kiwi it pays to go fast and I am sure your 10 running on 105 octane can give the shelby 150 Baja a real run for the money lol!!!
