    The MK II engine oil and gear box oil are cooled by a large cooler that sits centrally over the gear box. It’s fed air by the large hood scoop. Our road cars have coolers that can be seen through the central holes in the brake lights. On the Mk II you see the tires through the holes in the...

    The big hood scoop on the Mk II directs air to the engine oil cooler. The road cars have the engine oil and transmission coolers located behind the tail lamps. The Mk II has an external hood latch.

    Since there‘s no AC and limited airflow into the cockpit, I spec’d the car with a driver (and passenger) cooling system. The Chill Out system uses essentially a small fridge to cool a glycol/distilled water mixture to circulate in a cool suit. The reservoir is tucked way under the passenger...

    Obviously, we have a nice AC system on the FGT. The Mk II has no AC, just one NACA duct up front. The flexible duct channels air to one eyeball vent in the cockpit. The windows are Lexan and have pop out vents. The car is so aero, not much air comes through the window vents.

    Some other differences in the external body work. The street version has a flat transition between the front fender and door. The Mk II has a wider fender with a bulge there. On the street car you push in the door handle to open the door. On the Mk II you pull out the handle.

    Some other subtle aero differences. The street car has a cut out for the bottom of the door. There’s a CF panel under the door on the Mk II.

    Aero on the FGT Mk II vs the FGT. The front splitter on the Mk II is massive. The street car has an active aero system including the air channels up front and the deployable wing. The Mk II has a biplane fixed rear wing and air extractor vents on the front body work. The wing sticks out way...

    No delivery specialist this time. Unfortunate product of the “covid times”. I think anytime someone comes from Canada to the US, they have to go home and quarantine 😂. I got the owners manual PDF sent to me. Pretty straight forward stuff.

    Exactly. No rear view glass. Just a big air intake! The Motec system displays a rear view cam. On track you can toggle to that screen and/or check your side mirrors. The windshield is stock and has the mount for a rear view mirror. Street car rear view mirror Rear view cam on Mk II...

    Here’s the engine bay...road car vs Mk II. The Mk II has no CF shrouding. Naked. The rear shock dampers are visible. Oil tank is same as the road car. All business back there.

    I’m going to post up some distinct differences between the Mk II and the road car. The foot wells expose a lot of tech in the Mk II. The 5 way DSSV dampers and air jacks are fully visible in the foot wells on the MK II. Neat display of the technology. Street car footwell Mk II footwells

    agreed...most increase in HP from boost. Maybe some subtle intake changes and the water sprayers on the turbo intercoolers. Some nominal gain from exhaust.

    Nice! Thanks Randy. The aerial footage down the Mulsanne reminded me of our chopper ride in 2018.

    As Dr. Frank stated above, totally different process than applying to Ford for a street machine. Dialogue was directly with Multimatic Motorsports. A letter was written to Larry Holt and Sean Mason (the head of Multimatic Motorsport) expressing interest and qualifications (racing, track...

    With the Michelin slicks the grip is incredible. Braking distances shortened. I have to get comfortable with braking later and pushing the lateral G’s in turns. I bet I’m at 7/10ths. Probably 60 more HP compared to road car. It definitely hooks up and wants to go as you feed the power...

    We took some fun photos in the paddock. Two of my friends are professional photographers and they came out to document the proceedings. A little tip of the hat to fellow Texan Carroll Shelby.
