Lots of N2O makes up for high altitude.
When it comes down to it, basically everything we do to make more power with our engines involves cramming as many oxygen molecules possible in to their cylinders. However, when dealing with the thinner air found at high-altitudes that job becomes a bit tougher. Superchargers and turbos make a huge difference, but dollar-for-dollar nothing is more effective at introduce a cool/dense oxygen supply than a bottle of nitrous oxide.

“There’s nothing stock about a Stock Car.”, so says fictional racing legend Harry Hogg from 1990’s Days of Thunder. And while I am a proponent of the “stock sucks” philosophy, when it comes to auto racing my heart lies with actual stock cars (something NASCAR Cup racing gave up decades ago). There’s just something about watching a factory-bodied Mustang out there beating up on the competition that hits me right in the feels.

Are you getting top dollar for your trade?
For many people purchasing a new car is the one of the largest single purchases they will ever make, second only to buying a house. With that much money on the line it’s only logical to be damn near obsessed with getting the best deal possible. With the expansion of information available through various online resources it has become fairly easy to determine what is a reasonable sale price of that shiny new vehicle. Where things tend to get a bit more complicated and mysterious to the average consumer is when it comes time to negotiate the trade-in value of their old car.
New Mustang certainly makes a splash.
Just a few hours ago SVTP Member StacyStangz posted up a leaked video and a couple screen captures of the newly redesigned 2018 Ford Mustang. Interestingly, the reaction from the Mustang community has been largely negative. I suspect it will look much better in person, but this is definitely not the response Ford wanted for the new version of their Pony car. Not to mention the fact that since this video was leaked it is not supported with any accompanying information.
