Hey Don .Thanks for posting that. Pretty neat stuff. That Mustang was hard to get by. Are they running in kilometers or MPH? And also what kind of trannny is he running do you think? Lots of weidr noises in the cockpit like stuff is wearing out as we watch . Neat though.

Kilometers and I think a T5? I like the multiple data PIP, plus the rear view camera!

Hi Don. Thanks for replying I was thinking the speed was in K's since it was Europe.It took a while to recognize Spa from Formula One but Au Rouge finally showed up. Are you a FI enthusiast at all? The end of the season is a somewhat a forgone conclusion but one never knows. My favorite track I think.

Not a T5 unless they are now available with strait cut gears.

Good call on the T5 Richard, poor memory on my part.

Tim, I love road racing of all types. I used to work corners for SCCA, crew for Formula V, Super V, and Formula Ford so F1 is way out of my league.

Vintage racing, old courses, walking the pits, talking with the crews, taking photos, feeling the ground shake!

G Force makes a straight cut gear set with dog rings and a higher torque rating for the T5.
