The Forum Wars TV show puts different forums and different cars head to head in an all out tire smoking speed contest. The show will begin to air segments on Speed TV April 5th with full episodes on-line. The first episode of the show features Stangnet.com against My350Z.com. Rob Krider, who writes the Racer Boy column at Speed:Sport:Life represented Stangnet in a 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT. The Shelby was outfitted with Hoosier Tires, Carbotech Brake Pads and I/O Port Racing Supplies harnesses.
Rob is no stranger to racing or Mustangs. He previously owned an ex-CHP 1992 Mustang 5.0 LX notchback Police Interceptor which he drag raced religiously. Then he owned a 2001 Bullitt Mustang which he won rookie of the year honors at the Silver State Classic Open Road Race in Las Vegas. He also autocrossed his Bullitt at the National level and was known for drifting the Stang at SCCA events.
Rob said he has always relied on Stangnet for set-up and technical advice on all of his Mustangs. For The Forum Wars, Rob drove his friend Steve Kuhtz’s 2008 Shelby which they set up and raced in the SCCA together.
Check out the trailer below and check to see on April 5th who wins the match up. Mustang or Z?
