    thank you.  i always thought of myself as a bad ass 6'2", 165 lb biker dude (well bicycler anyways....lol).
    the falcon steers easier, brakes better, shifts easier and has an easier clutch than the mustang.  the falcon rides flat around the corners, but i don't think that means it handles the corners better.  i'm pretty certain if i pushed the falcon at all around the corners that it would be in the ditch.   it has no front sway bar and has a rear four link that is inherently in bind on roll or a single side bump.  but, i really don't have any interest in finding the limits on the corners of these cars on the street.   i will say the mustangs leaf springs with a detroit locker give an interesting feel when in and out of the throttle.  great for giving people rides.  the falcon rear end is extremely well behaved.  i'm sure the 4-link/panhard is the primary reason.  maybe the helical differential helps too.
    the falcon seats are considerably different as compared to the mach 1 seats.
    the clutch in the falcon (Ram Force 10.5" dual sintered iron disc) is slipping bad.  and that is with the throttle heavily limited (probably limited to flow about 60%).  Mccleod just finished balancing an RXT1200 assembly and should be here in a few days. i hope that resolves that issue and i can get at least a hit or two at the dragstrip this fall.

    your sensor of the fan activity should be located at the exit of the radiator/entrance to the engine (lower hose).  basically, if the radiator (without fans) is able to adequately cool the fluid before it enters the engine, then there is no point in turning on the fans or have them turned up.    locating that sensor in the intake manifold will basically have you running the fans more necessary.  which of course won't hurt beyond consuming a little more energy/power at certain times.

    i really like the 63 hardtop body.  i thought the roof looked peculiar when i first saw the pictures (same exact roof as mine) and noticed that the description indicates heavy mods.  what a lot of work.  very neat description of what they did.  always love black too.

    i would say this will be the last post....
    interior is finished.  i had to make my own carpet.  so that involved sectioning areas around the tunnel and sewing it back up.
    i probably have around 250 miles on it as of now.  i'm blown away, but it's actually easier to drive than the mustang....i was certain it would have been the other way around....
    video was the second startup.  was cold outside that day....

    i did not use the same paint color.  they do seem pretty close though.  i think i started with an off the shelf color for the mustang.  I know I added metallic to that.  I may have darkened the color (or maybe i changed the tone of the other gray parts).   the gray on the falcon is also off the shelf and not modified though.  it's a solid color used for many cars like jeeps and mopars.  one name for it is destroyer gray.

    thank you.  i'm sure the falcon will get driven more in the first year, but the Mustang will always be the special one to me for many reasons.  hoping my dad will be able to come down and drive the falcon with me in the mustang.  I believe the falcon probably means more to him for his reasons....
