October’s ROTM brought us a car that has been built for bracket racing. Casper GT’s 2000 Mustang GT has been meticulously modified for drag strip reliability. Now before you start thinking of a big loping cam or the sound of a spooling turbo let me point out that the cam covers on this GT have never even been off.

Following up from their announcement at last year’s SEMA Show, Cooper Tire recently invited us to their test facility near San Antonio, TX, to experience some new products for performance cars. The ZEON RS3-A and RS3-S will be available through Cooper Tire dealers in April, just in time for Spring’s road challenges.
Some of us like to keep cars for years. Keep them in the garage, bring them out to wash them, and then put them right back in. Not February Ride of the Month Winner, Ryan Weems. Not only does he daily drive his vehicles, he seems to change them out on a monthly basis.
We recently received this story about an exhaust system gone wrong. While significant money was spent creating the magnificent drive train, the exhaust was so badly designed as to cause Kevin Crocie of Colvin Automotive to wonder if the engine was damaged. After all, to have the World Products 427cid, 495hp engine only generate 258 horsepower at the rear tires, something had to be really wrong.
As Crocie ultimately determined, the exhaust system was the culprit – and was easily corrected through proper fitment. Documented here by one of Flowmaster’s technical experts, Jeff Thomas, who recently discussed the scenario with Crocie, the correction was miraculous – and cemented the fact that you can select the wrong exhaust products for your vehicle with disastrous results. This worst case scenario is a perfect example of – exhaust design gone wrong!
