now if we can just get Steve to pair up with Griggs, then we'd be cookin with gas!!!!

I like everything else about the SMS car better than this one with one important exception, the rear-end. Saleen's version is the only one that cleans up the abomination that Ford pasted on there from the factory. SMS's version looks completely spastic and out of place, and is just as bad as the factory units from Ford IMO.

I'd take the SMS car, and graft the Saleen's rear end onto it.

Here are a couple video's of some suspension testing we did earlier this week at Gingerman Raceway here in Michigan. These are just some teasers, more to come, including full track data, lap times, G Load, acceleration, deceleration, and much more!!

Track?
 
Reading above it sounds like there will be Saleen street version and a Saleen track version.

Is the N2+ version the track version? I thought that was the new standard Saleen suspension. If so, how do I get the track version? The stock N2 suspension makes these things wallow around the track like a dizzy cow. Must get track version.....

Jess Albright 08-13-2010 07:14 PM

Yes, there will also be a track version of the coilover kit. The kit we sell now is perfectly capable of going out on a track and handling awesome, but the track kit will be more of a dedicated track set up, not as good on the street! Stiffer and lower!!

The majority of the people would probably want to go with the standard kit, while the guys who are really serious about putting their car on a track and racing it will want the track kit.

Along with this car, we also had the 2010 S281 Supercharged, and a 2011 S302 NA production cars out on the track for a few laps, both had the Saleen coil over kit on them and they were unbelievable!! We have some video clips of that also that we will post soon.

Thank you
Jess

QCRAZY 08-13-2010 08:14 PM

ETA on the track kit?

Werecow 08-16-2010 12:38 PM

Jess, so that I am clear. You will be offering the base suspension, the street coil-over and a track coil-over system? Why not just offer the two coil-over systems?

Here is another video of this beast - thanks to Jess !!

Thanks to Chris, Jess and Pete for their insights.

I like the car Pete did, and it is certainly different from a "standard" Saleen.

It is nice to see some of the things that have historically been left untouched getting addressed with Saleen parts. I am looking forward to the suspension parts list...

i think with a better wheel design *cough *cough 5 spoke.. it would look pretty good. and the color.... yea may be a trademark but its not working IMO

demos449 12-06-2010 01:59 AM

I like the new Saleen, IMO it is much nicer then the SMS.

That looks hot!

I like the wheel choice and the ride height/stance.

Any other photos of this car?

WickedS281SC 12-06-2010 11:52 AM

here it is in a couple of other shots -

The SMS car does look like the 05-09 Saleen, as a matter of fact.....it looks like the 99-04 Saleen, the S7, and the S-331 truck. We love the family resemblance. That is why I can always tell its a Saleen from a mile away.

I understand what you are saying though, it really tough since everyone here is so passionate about cars. We are kids of divorced parents and we are going to take sides. That's just how things ended up. I think the SPV Saleen looks good. To me personally, I will never accept it as a "Saleen" car. I think it will be a touchy subject as long as it is branded that way. It's something that myself and others will have to get over. I have definitely tried to be more reserve with my comments.

The dyno vehicle is known as #18 and appears to have been built on a Track Pack GT chassis... the photo vehicle is #03.
