Steve, nice article in the latest Shelby magazine with Carroll's CSX. I know what the author means about "only so much grip from the ancient Goodyears". My GLHS has next to zero now on those original ancient Goodyears.

I hear you. Those 20-26 year old Gatorbacks are now pretty rock hard.

An article on Carroll's CSX in the latest Shelby Magazine!? I am excited! Which CSX, the '89? I heard that was his favourite. My membership doesn't renew for a few more months, I'm not sure I can wait that long!

1987 Shelby Lancer #176: Numbers Matching except the trans, boss plate is blank... I'm guessing too many burnouts while under warranty.

Like driving a big wheels toy with plastic tires lol, lots of slide and no body roll lol.

Nice aarticle few little things though that were off though but not much. Like a CSX T with 146 hp, had a bit more. Surprised the car in the Museum doesn't have the Recaro option? Have to say now that I am older and many years construction behind me the standard seats would be nicer lol. At 5'-8" and 185 lbs I am really too fat to sit in #187 lol.

Yes sometimes details get lost in translation but the 146hp rating for the 1988 CSX-T is correct. Stock Chrysler T-I drivetrain in those rental cars.
