Default Proud new owner of Racecraft #1

I just bought a 2008 racecraft mustang on friday 7/15 and have been loving it since... Saturday morning I had to take in the 2nd key to my trade-in and when I took it in I was greeted by the dealership manager who had pictures of the unveiling at mustang week 2008 and paperwork from saleen on my new racecraft.

After talking for a few minutes with the manager I found out that this was the first ever racecraft mustang that I had just purchased and was the one used for all of the brochures.

Letter from saleen:

so far I am very happy with the car.


Had a question tho... Would going to 3.25 or a 3.5 saleen pulley and 108 belt require a full chip reprogram and upgraded fuel or no?

Welcome, I remember when they first showed the car at mustang week. Saleen gave away free racecraft t-shirts when it was unveiled. I actually got one and my father-in-law got one. Can't wait to see pics.

This should be the car from Mustang Week at Myrtle Beach. I should have some good pics of this car.

This Racecraft was on autotrader.com and eBay throughout late summer / fall 2013. A dealer had it. The original poster more than likely no longer owns this vehicle.

Congrats! I thought that car was back east. Are you in Ca.? I also have an 08 white one. Love mine. Dave was trying to help figure out the possible build #. Kinda settled on #17. Do you know what your RA# was?
