NASCAR-powered Mustang race car


  The beauty of the NASA American Iron Extreme class is that any OEM engine can be used and there are no horsepower or torque limits. As you might imagine, this leads to some interesting powertrain combinations.
A perfect example is this 2008 Ford Mustang recently completed by The Mustang Shop in Auburn, WA. Under the hood is a 358 cubic inch V8 sourced from one of Mark Martin’s Winston Cup race car. The engine and several other components from the car including the shifter and driveshaft were purchased from Roush/Yates and squeezed into the Mustang’s engine bay.

According to the company, the stock hood had to be trimmed to accommodate the carbon fiber air cleaner cover, and the intake, cam and carburetor were all swapped out for components more suited to road racing. The Mustang’s stock suspension has been beefed up with a full Whiteline setup including a watts-link system and anti-dive kit.

    The phone was successful in creating a huge buzz much before its launch and now
    when it has been launched; there is a huge craze among people to buy it.
    However, Samsung has placed a sensitivity feature on its screen. New smartphones are coming on the market all the time, prompting consumers to do a smartphone comparison between all of the major brands.
