Shelby Mustang GT500 - Sickingly Venomous Track Attack - Shoot Out!
Eleven Sick Shelbys Take To The Quarter-Mile In Our First Ever GT500 Shootout.
Mark Franzin's GT500 was one of the pair in the Outlaw class showcasing a Kenne Bell blower, and he used it, along with some help from Evolution Performance, to nab the runner-up spot in the category. Mark's car also sported a rearend conversion, as a Moser 9-inch resides out back. Having previously ripped off a best lap of 10.40 seconds at 132 mph, Mark came loaded for bear. After taking it easy on his first lap, Mark got after it on his second and third runs, recording a 10.14 and a 10.16, both with trap speeds well into the high-134-mph zone.
"I bought the car for the horsepower," Mark says. "As for time and money invested, are you kidding me? Most of my time and lots more money are what made this car go as quick as it did."
