Until the GT500 lands later this year, it’s the brawniest Mustang you can buy
All of this means that the 2019 GT350 has more grip to maximize performance, especially at high speeds. Outside of performance upgrades, the GT350 now offers a B&O stereo and two new shades of blue.
It received updates to make it even quicker for 2019
And though it has the amenities for street driving, the adaptive dampers can’t hide that this Mustang was built to go fast. It’s stiff over bumps and the tramlining can make it more work to drive than your average car.

The engine and transmission carry over from 2018. We’re normally a fan of updates, but the GT350 powertrain may just be the best engine-transmission combination on sale.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 was introduced for the 2016 model year to critical acclaim. Most of the praise went to the massive, 5.2-liter V-8 that’s special to the GT350 and its more-aggressive sibling, the GT350R. Unlike the GT350R, though, the standard-issue Shelby gets some notable upgrades for 2019.

We’ll have to spend some more time with it before we have a verdict on what it’s like to live with, but the GT350 is certainly one of the most fun cars we’ve tested.

How-to section / Re: Rear Differential Mount Gusseting for HP
« Last post by RTTTTed on January 27, 2019, 07:08:14 PM »
Joel Fortin (like myself) has no problem overbuilding parts for his car so he made double outer gussets with a bolt access hole and drain hole.

When Joel went to a Ford 9" rear diff he sold me his gussetted diff and other misc parts since I'm still working a couple built Dana Super 44s.

If you look under my 900whp TT Street Viper you'll see this diff cover/rear mount which I installed Poly mounts into that mount, supplied by Ryan Hagen.

How-to section / Rear Differential Mount Gusseting for HP
« Last post by RTTTTed on January 27, 2019, 06:33:23 PM »
I was advised that I should strengthen my rear differential mount at my higher hp level.  While thinking of how to weld cast aluminium to plate aluminium Joel came out of the water burnout and his differential bust both front and rear mounts!   Luckily he didn't have any other damage and no one hurt.  Also a huge bonus that it happened before racing down the quarter mile at speed.

Time to weld gussets to fill the airgaps of the rear mounting arms.  I cut small gussets out of 1/4" aluminium plate and ground the differential mount cleam and made nice tight fits.  Then I welded with a MIG (sire feed) welder.  There were some air bubbles and pits in the weld.  I installed some custom made aluminium bushings in place of the rubber ones then I painted the diff and installed it back into my car.  Busted the transmission again.  I got a deal on a 35 spline spool, diff stubs axles and Billet yoke so I pulled my current set up out of car to install the new spool with its Cryo polished gear set, Steel Mark Williams carrier caps, ARP stuuds and Billet yoke.  A slight improvement over what i already had.  But I decided to upgrade to prettier diff mount gussets because I'd purchased a TIG welder and needed the practice.

Just a note that people don't all know about;

When tightening gear clamps on the rad hoses, the intake hoses and vacuum hoses most people just tighten them in the easiest position. 

Back in my Custom Car Show days one of the other guys showed me that if you position the gear and the loose strap on the bottom of the hose it really isn't much harder to tighten and with the gear pn the bottom (under the hose) the engine compartment looks much cleaner since all that shows of the gear clamp (or T bar clamp for us TT guys) is the shiny Stainless strap across the the hose!

A common problem with Gen 2 GTSs is the cabin exhaust vents getting knocked out of place.  When this happens the exhaust can enter the car when the window/s are open.

All that is necessary is to replace the vent in it's spot at the rear corners of the car's quarter panels.  The 4 vents are located 2 per side.  Pull the side carpet back and see if the vent panels are lined up properly with the rubber seals in a horizontal position.  It will normally be obvious if the vent panels are knocked out, they can't go far but they do move back from the car's body losing the seal and allowing exhaust to enter the cabin.

See picture below to see misalignment.

RT/10 & GTS Viper Discussions / Re: MY Roe GTS with Pics
« Last post by RTTTTed on October 07, 2018, 10:45:11 PM »
Went to Leduc with Joel to help him get in some drag runs and there was a few problems before we were booted off the track for going too fast.  9.3@160mph ....

One the way home from Joel's house two Deer attacked me and when I saw an opening I turned the wheel, hit a puddle, spun out and went into ditch where the car flipped onto the roof and Insurance wrote it off.

They did agree to pay me $58,000 + tax costs

Everything in and on my car was upgraded and new so although I have cheapo Gov oinsurance and they only pay a max of $5000 over stock value, I bought the car back to sell off the built engine, blower, big brakes, Tranzilla, axles, headers, stereo Big Brakes, etc etc

RT/10 & GTS Viper Discussions / Re: Front mount twin turbo all out build
« Last post by jtin on July 21, 2018, 07:41:07 PM »
Yes the car has had a few major changes. The engine and turbo system remain the same. 

As far as the drags go it went 8.7 @ 163 and 9.20@168.
Returned short after that and it went 10.0 @ 169 with bad O2 sensor missing out on the first 300 feet.
Recently went back out and ran 9.20@160 blowing tires at 100ft Mark and lifted a head on that pass. 

It’s currently being rebuilt and by mid August I’d like to run a clean pass from beginning to end.  Hoping for 8.50’s at 170 plus. See what happens.
