anyone ever seen a mustang 2 on a dirt track?a friend has one of the cobra's its kinda rough but it has a 302 in it and it will scream, and i was thinkin..........think it would work in a pure stock class?.. our rules say "no subcompact cars" but if it came out of the factory with a v8 i would think it would be ok.

bryanb30, i'm fighting the rules makers now trying to get my v-8 '89 mustang ok'd for next season. i had just convinced the promoter to allow them in and now the track is under new ownership for 2003. it looks like i'll have to start all over again..... either trying to convince the new owner or building a new car.

the minimum wheelbase rule is where they trip you up.

the 101" wheelbase rule is to allow in the strut camaros/firebirds. as usual, the rules are written for chevrolets. if a promoter really wanted to make it interesting, he'd change it to 99" min. and allow in the 79-up mustangs. my 2 cents..........

the wheelbase is 98" and ford never put a 260 in mustangs unless the motor is not original
