Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords: Affordable 11′s

Affordable 11s – that is the caption on the front cover on the May, 2011 edition of Muscle Mustang & Fast Fords that highlights a Steeda Sport Edition Mustang. It is available today at newsstands everywhere, just look for the silver and black Steeda Mustang doing a thunderous burnout of it’s Nitto tires on it’s cover.

Inside, there is a seven page overview of the latest Steeda ‘Stang and plenty of action shots as well as an impartial review of the car by MM&FF Editor Evan J. Smith. Suffice to say we gave Evan and his team the keys to one of our corporate cars for an extended six-week time period and told them to drive it, test it, thrash it, and then let the world know what they REALLY think about it – no holds barred – and let the chips fall where they may! Needless to say, they took us up on the challenge and there evaluation has been completed.

Suffice to say we were not worried when we turned the keys over to one of our regular production cars – because we have confidence that the performance modifications and tuning we made to the base Mustang GT turned it into an ever greater superstar than it already is. This is because of our over 23 years of uninterrupted and exclusive Mustang performance experience as well as our ISO 9001-2008 Certified engineering and manufacturing operations leave no chance for errors on the performance parts we produce.

Inside the magazine, as expected there are open and candid comments as they put it through its paces on the dragstrip, on the road, and on the open track – just like you would do if you had the keys.

Overall there is some pretty high praise for the Steeda Mustang – Evan wrote in the article:

  • “When your toughest decision is whether to hit the dragstrip or the road course, you know it is going to be an amazing day”
  • “To say we were having fun would be a gross understatement”
  • “The average owner can expect a Mustang that will lay down 405-410 rwhp and with a set of drag radials will turn low-12 or high-11 quarter mile times”

Of course you would expect comments like that when you had a Mustang equipped with Steeda parts to play with, but you really must read the entire article to see their complete commentary an unbiased review.

Second Annual Pony Wars Recap

The second annual Pony Wars held this past weekend was a phenomenal success with attendance up over 50% from last year with a vast variety of Ford, Chevy, and Mopar fans converging together and all celebrating the great performance cars that are all Made in America. It was evident that the camaraderie between competing brand owners was remarkable with everyone was appreciative of each other’s cars and celebrating performance vehicles that only come from America!

The Pony War event started sharply at 8:00 with a private tour of the Steeda Autosports facility in Valdosta Georgia where Dario Orlando and the Steeda Team provided personalized insight on the in house engineering, manufacturing, and distribution operations.  Then at 10:00 the cars all lined up forming a two-mile long line of Ford, Chevy, and Mopar vehicles that snaked it’s way to the South Georgia Motorsports Park Facility – it was a “Kodak Moment” of American Pride to behold!

During the day there was never ending drag racing going that pitted cars against each other in head to head and grudge racing competition.  It didn’t matter if you wanted to seriously race someone – or if you just wanted to see how fast your car would do with you behind the wheel down the quarter-mile, as there was something for everyone at this great event.  When speed mattered most, Steeda’s own Scott Boda, who was piloting his 1990 Mustang LX with a full compliment of Steeda performance parts and accessories, provided some excitement.  Scott was consistently ripped off times that included a blazing 9.12et at over 152mph – not bad for a “grocery getter Mustang” with some special purpose Steeda parts providing that extra competitive drag racing advantage!

We even had our own 2011 5.0L Steeda Sport Mustang at the track – finalizing it’s testing of drag racing performance with our proprietary Steeda Boss 302 induction system.  With final adjustments are still being done by the Steeda Skunkworks Team – we were able to record some extremely impressive ETs and top speed figures with it running with and then without the laughing gas being injected.

In addition to all of the drag racing, there was a car show that also provided an opportunity to mingle and admire many different rides on display. While every car on being shown was effectively a winner by showcasing pure American Pride, there were some special prizes recognizing the top award winners that were distributed to some of the most notable rides.  The collection of cars on display was simply amazing and the people that were there made all the difference as everyone was essentially one big happy automotive family.

All in all – the Pony Wars presented by Steeda Autosports was a huge success and plans are currently underway to make it bigger and better in the future by further expanding it’s scope to include even more – stay tuned for additional information in the near future as we all celebrate American Pride at the Pony Wars presented by Steeda Autosports !
