Lighten Your Front End!
Motorheads are always in search of ways for more power or less weight. When it comes to removing weight from your Mustang, taking it off the front end of the car is preferable to removing it from elsewhere. With this in mind, I decided to remove some weight from the front of my 93 LX coupe using a tubular front-end system and switching to manual steering. Of course there were some "snags" enco...

[05/05/2002] Columbus NMRA Shootout Coverage Qualifying Report

There was no shortage of scenery in Columbus. But, where''s the TA Girdle for that rearend?
The Mike and Brandon Rivard father-son duo, from Lexington, Kentucky, are back again this year competing in Mod Motor with their beautiful Saleen''s. Brandon''s lovely girlfriend Megan was cordial enough to show off his 2000 Supercharged Saleen for us. Looks like Brandon''s still besting the old man though by qualifying in the 10th spot with a 12.88 over Mike''s 13.0 in his 1996 Model.
Yes - the ever elusive Mike Wesley does exist. To bad the Calibrator doesn''t...! [GRIN] Regardless, sporting his 2000 Cobra R he cooked off a 10.55 pass in Real Street Saturday to qualify number four. Feature Editor, Rudy Rouweyha, works the cameras at the starting line to bring you the greatest shots from the weekend''s hottest racing action.
The Mustangworks crew is back at it again! We''re at the NMRA Columbus event and bringing you the best coverage on the net. After three rounds of qualifying, some familiar names are in the top spots again. In Pro 5.0 the number 1 qualifier is Bill Glidden who clocked a 6.89 ET! The Pro 5.0 field will consist of six cars for tomorrow''s eliminations. In Super Street Outlaw Todd Fluman was the lone entry to make it into the 7 second zone with 7.90. Right behind him in the number two slot is Mike Murrilo''s coupe. EFI Renegade saw a pretty busy field with Jim Larocca leading the charge with a 9.025. The big news however is that the number two car of Bart Tobener is out of competition and won''t be ready for tomorrow. Apparently Bart hurt a motor pretty badly and is done for the weekend.

In the other classes, Kurt Neighbor sits atop the Hot Street heap as the top qualifier with a 9.38. He will have a full field to contend with tomorrow as there seems to be no shortage of naturally aspirated, high winding, small block Fords! In Real Street no less than twelve entries are in the 10''s while the other eleven cars are in the 11''s. Leading the charge in this class is Jason Hoots. In Pure Street Gene Hindman qualified number 1 with a 10.88. However other racers are also in the 10''s in this class as well which should make for some close racing. Factory Stock isn''t a class with a large number of cars but these racers work very hard at getting their horsepower with minimal modifications compared to the other classes. The ET''s are all in the 12''s with two entries cracking the 11 second barrier.

The absence of slicks doesn''t hold the Drag Radial class back from going 9''s! Chris Little''s bright green 90 Mustang is blindingly fast and nabbed the top spot with a 9.205. Close behind is Spence Hart with a 9.209. In Modular Muscle Joe Hutchins 97 Cobra is the one to beat. Joe''s Cobra went 11.029 to lead a field of eighteen entries. The Modular class continues to show a large variety of combinations ranging from 4-valve Cobra 4.6 entries to SOHC 4.6 T-Birds. The Truck class this year has plenty of Supercharged Lightnings. However, its good old fashioned big block power taking the number 1 spot with a 10.34. In addition to these classes there was plenty of action in the Open Comp and Bracket classes plus the car show and Manufacturer''s Midway. As usual Mustangworks will be bringing you a complete feature article following race day. In the meantime check out the pics and live video we took for you so far.
