Real-world testing still matters, so the Shelby GT500 team ran extended high-speed tests on some of the most notable racetracks across the United States – including Virginia International Raceway, NOLA Motorsports Park and GingerMan Raceway – to refine the aerodynamic designs and help the all-new Shelby GT500 deliver the fastest track times ever in a production Mustang along with improved driver control for greater confidence behind the wheel. Some prefer to simply land with only 30 degrees of flap deployment. Nelson selected an excellent airplane in which to train for an instrument rating, because the Cessna 180 is so stable.
VX (best angle of climb, flaps 20)
Up front, Ford says the new fascia increases cooling capacity for the GT500 by over 50 percent compared to the GT350. Generally there are around 2 people in the boat and I very rarely have it filled up completely with fuel. No GPS readings yet however, on a standard route in my area I can get to the islands in 25 mins horsing around.
Boing! The Cessna 180 and 185 have trimmable (moveable) horizontal stabilizers that reduce the trim drag associated with conventional elevator trim systems. Is this close to what others are seeing? High-performance cooling targets also factor into the design and virtual testing to help ensure consistent heat management and power delivery over extended sessions at the track. The Cessna 180 was the first to have its fuel vent situated behind a wing strut, a feature found on every subsequent Cessna with strut-braced wings. Speeding development time, the most promising designs were printed in a matter of days, not months, allowing the team to increase the fidelity of performance and aerodynamic refinement. Is this close to what others are seeing?
Key modeling simulations included cooling systems, front fascia and splitter designs, along with brake ducting, rear spoiler designs and a large 6.03 square-foot louvered hood vent. I went out Sunday with 3 adults and 2 kids in the boat and at 7000rpm it was going 30 mph according to the Seadoo speedometer.
I have a 2005 Challenger 180 (215) that we have topped out at 52 mph with 3 people (captain, passenger, and one on the bow) on the boat and a full tank of gas. “This all-new aero design merges state-of-the-art design and materials technology with the craftsmanship of Ford racing expertise to create the most aero-capable Mustang ever,” said Steve Thompson, Ford Performance vehicle dynamics engineer. A Stene Aviation STOL kit adds wing cuffs that droop the leading edges, as well as aileron seals and redesigned wing tips. Page 1 of 2 - Challenger 180 Real World Top Speed? Join the club! Adding only 36 pounds to the empty weight, a seaplane kit includes the hidden hardware required to convert a landplane to a seaplane and the strengthening needed for the airframe to endure seaplane operations. Lazy feet are a liability when departing in a taildragger. Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association Find it free on the store. Rate of climb, sea level | 1,100 fpm We contacted Ford for clarification, and yes, the 2020 Shelby GT500 officially has a manufacturer-limited top speed of 180 mph. The motor used in the XC180 / XC200 is a simple but rugged design. The 52 was registered with a Garmin handheld but our speedometer had as at like 41. Hi, my 1998 seadoo twin rotax, unknown miles does 50mph on gauge at 7k rpm on each tach. | 12 kt | 1,205 ft Payload w/full fuel | 816 lb I didn't have the break-in hours on it so I didn't punch it. Mine indicates 48mph/78kph in 25*c water, quicker when its wintery(82kph. The secret is to avoid excessive airspeed and to use a velvet touch on the control wheel. Anyways just curious what rpm's you all are getting from yours?Good luck to us allzzsdmsmy. In addition to flying for Wings of Faith Ministries, a Christian organization based in Corona, California, the 1,100-hour private pilot also plans to use his airplane to earn an instrument rating. Already a member? The more powerful Cessna 185 was identical to the Cessna 180 except for a strengthened fuselage; an additional window; an enlarged dorsal fin to help keep the additional power in check; and, of course, a significant increase in performance. (The Cessna 185 is equipped with a manual tailwheel lock to assist the pilot in maintaining directional control during takeoff and landing.) I have a 2005 Challenger 180 (215) that we have topped out at 52 mph with 3 people (captain, passenger, and one on the bow) on the boat and a full tank of gas. They used state-of-the-art digital and additive manufacturing prototyping tools as part of a mission to make the ultimate, most advanced performance street-legal Mustang of all time. I was only able to get 37mph. My issues have allways been the rpm's.
Hi, I have an 08 challenger 180 with 215hp Just wondering what it's top speed is roughly. I hear 46-52mph and I don't feel that those numbers are realistic. An innovative new rear spoiler design, standard on the base 2020 Shelby GT500 and known by the aero team as “the swing” – a hybrid between a spoiler and a wing – is a result of the advanced simulations and prototyping process. GPS had it at 43 with regular unleaded and only about 75% throttle. Empty weight (standard) | 1,648 lb Max takeoff weight | 2,800 lb Recommended TBO | 1,500 hr Fuel capacity, w/opt tanks | 80 gal (75 gal usable) 480 lb (450 lb usable) On paper 75kph will do the run in about 20-25 mins. Delivering more than 700 horsepower using 93-octane fuel, maximizing cooling at the front is critical to the Shelby GT500’s vigorous track performance, and where the team focused much of its efforts. The team achieved maximum rear downforce of 550 pounds at 180 mph, leveraging the Mustang GT4 race-proven rear track wing to deliver the most downforce ever on a street-legal Mustang with available Carbon Fiber Track Package. “Over 700 horsepower” is the vague figure Ford has stuck with for over a year, but the automaker does at least say the Shelby will turn a sub-11-second quarter-mile time. A removable rain tray further aids cooling and works to reduce underhood air pressure at high speeds, while a Shelby-specific rear diffuser helps channel under-car airflow. I usually get around 37-38mph gps and/or speedomoter(wich is accurate).
On Shelbys equipped with the optional Carbon Fiber Track Package, a big rear wing generates 500 pounds of downforce at the car’s maximum speed. Ford dropped a bit more information on its new Mustang Shelby GT500 today, talking at length about the car’s aerodynamic prowess and how the range-topping Pony Car will tackle the lateral arts instead of being a straight-line dominator. As airspeed gathers, maintain a slightly tail-low attitude until the airplane leaves the ground. The boat speedo so far is within the ball park. Perfectly calm day in mid-October on a Lake Tarpon and the water literally looked like glass. To physically validate the improving designs, Ford’s wind tunnels in Michigan and Windshear rolling wind tunnel in Concord were also used. Wing area | 174 sq ft Considering the GT500 has considerably more horsepower than the GT350, extra cooling is never a bad thing. Based on reports of 40-45 I guess I am doing good. This is not recommended for shared computers. The standard GT500 still benefits from aero tweaks, however, with a hybrid wing/spoiler dubbed “swing” that produces 379 pounds of downforce, also at 180 mph.
Horsepower: 180 Gross Weight: 2400 lbs Top Speed: 132 kts Empty Weight: 1230 lbs Cruise Speed: 124 kts Fuel Capacity: 50 gal Stall Speed (dirty): 50 kts Range: 510 nm Takeoff: Landing: Ground Roll: 720 ft Ground Roll 600 ft: Over 50 ft obstacle: 1620 ft Over 50 ft obstacle: 1150 ft … For starters, Ford has significantly recast the new GT500 has a corner-carving dynamo, and that affects top speed. Ford didn’t specifically say the new Shelby tops out at 180, but Car and Driver reported that figure as the car’s governed top speed. mine also shows 55mph flat out with 2 people on board! Nelson learned to fly in Alaska in 1984 but gave up flying after moving to San Diego in 1989.
In March 2007 he purchased an airplane eminently suited for that purpose and the rough-hewn strips he would encounter; he hangars his meticulously kept Cessna 180 at Zamperini Field in Torrance, California. The airplane can carry six, but the strictly utilitarian bench seat in the far rear of the cabin is barely suitable for small children. This includes a new performance fascia design that doubles the front opening volume and increases cooling pack airflow through six heat exchangers at top speed by 50 percent versus the existing Mustang GT350 design. Max level speed, sea level | 148 kt The pristine 1977 Cessna 180K on these pages is owned by Bruce Nelson, operations officer for the FAA’s Western-Pacific Regional Office in Lawndale, California. Baggage capacity (with 6 seats) | 50 lb, Takeoff distance, ground roll | 620 ft We also know the car goes on sale this summer, so presumably all the GT500’s figures will be revealed in the next couple months. The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 goes on sale this summer. The Cessna 180 and 185 have trimmable (moveable) horizontal stabilizers that reduce the trim drag associated with conventional elevator trim systems. It became especially popular with those needing a lightweight, utilitarian airplane that could endure seaplane operations and feel at home using unimproved strips carved from the wilderness. Oil capacity | 12 qt
Cruise speed/endurance w/45-min rsv, std fuel (fuel consumption) cross fingers. Whether on floats, wheels, or skis, these brawny, high-wing Cessnas still have a reputation for being perhaps the best lightweight bush airplanes ever developed, durability and reliability being more important than eye appeal and speed. Nosewheels became the rage during the 1950s, and it was no surprise when, in 1956, Cessna substituted one for the 180’s tailwheel. Takeoff distance over 50-ft obstacle In any case, turning blistering lap times or 10-second quarter-mile passes doesn’t require a car to exceed 200 mph. You can tell that Nelson’s airplane has a seaplane kit by the V-brace inside the front windshield, part of the added structural rigidity.
