Another Win for Steeda's Number 20 Race Mustang!

STEEDA TAKES TWO WINS AND RUNNER-UP AT THE BUD MERRILL MEMORIAL DOUBLE SARRC/TES/ECR
ENDURO AT PALM BEACH INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY




MARCH 14, 2017
Driving the 2017 Steeda Autosports Q500R Ford Mustang, drivers Dario Orlando and
Glen Vitale nearly swept the weekend at Palm Beach International Raceway (Palm
Beach, FL), taking two wins and a second place finish in the triple-race, Bud Memorial
Double SARRC ECR Challenge. The event included two 20-minute sprint races and a
1.5-hour Enduro that included refueling and a driver change.

Orlando, who drove both sprint races, qualified the yellow and black Number 20 Ford on
pole in both twin South Atlantic Road Race Championships events. Admittedly rusty, he
struggled at the start of the first race and spun on the second lap—but despite having
not competed in over two years, he gathered the Mustang and fought his way back to
grab a second-place podium finish. "It was great to get back in competition,” said
Orlando. "We’ve worked diligently to produce a Mustang with greatly enhanced handling
performance, but one that’s easy to drive at the limit. Our Q-series Mustangs are
balanced and do well on the street or the track. In fact, one of the reasons we race is to
show enthusiasts they can have the very best parts whether they drive on the street or
track,” Orlando added.

Orlando was better prepared for the second sprint race. He rocketed to a great start and
despite a strong challenge from the Number 52 BMW M3 (see photo), he was able to
maintain the lead and take the victory. "It was a challenge staying ahead of the
supercharged M3,” stated Orlando, "However, the Steeda Mustang prevailed and it was
really exciting to take a win. Our Q500R utilizes a tuned 5.0L Coyote engine, a stock
transmission and our full Steeda G-Trac suspension, with Pro Action adjustable shocks.
It’s stuff you can buy and adapt easily to any S550 Mustang. This system really
enhances performance and we offer a few levels depending on your demands.”

The team concluded the weekend running the 1.5-hour ECR Enduro, where Orlando
took his third pole of the weekend. SCCA regular and Steeda team driver, Glen Vitale,
took the first stint, and he made the most of Orlando’s P1 starting position. Vitale jetted
to the lead, poured the coals to the Steeda Q500R and never looked back. He ran fast
and clean, leading the race until half way, when he pitted for refueling and to hand the
reigns to Orlando. With 30 minutes to go, Orlando got back in the mix and held off the
field for a true flag-to-flag victory.

"It was an amazing race weekend for our team,” said Orlando. "The car performed well,
the only glitch was a wiped stock clutch during the end of the last race. We plan to
upgrade to an Exedy clutch and we’ll be back to the track. We use this car to develop
new Steeda parts, so we’re always pushing and learning. And we can’t want to get
back, take a look at the Mustang and then do our job making the best parts for our
customers.



Congratulations to the team at Steeda HQ from everyone at Steeda UK!

Steeda Race S550 Dominates in first race meet at Homestead, Miami

The Steeda Q500R Mustang places 1st beating heavily modified corvettes, BMWs, and all others at its inaugural race at homestead



The debut of our 2017 Steeda Q500R Mustang resulted in a conclusive victory against all comers at the 2017 inaugural SCCA majors in homestead, Florida this weekend. Competing in the highly contested sports car club of America touring 1 class where modified production based sports cars slug it out in a winner take all format – the 2017 Steeda q500r became the first s550 based mustang to take top honours on the podium with a dominate victory against other highly modified corvettes, BMWs, vipers and other high-priced sports cars.

Background – speed matters® is more than just a slogan at Steeda – from ISO 9001:2008 certified engineering and manufacturing to the creation of limited edition serialized Steeda performance vehicles to competing at grass roots as well as major racing events around the country. Our strategic intent is to provide ultimate performance parts and accessories for ford enthusiasts worldwide – on & off the track.

Details – the 2017 Steeda Q500R is a rolling test bed equipped with virtually all of the Steeda’s designed, engineered, and manufactured parts that retail customers can purchase for their own 2015 – 2017 mustang. In its very first outing of the season, the Steeda q500r piloted by Steeda vice president of operations Glen Vitale proved to be unbeatable. The race was a test of extreme conditions – from dry to extremely wet conditions, from high speed to twisting corners. At the end of the race, the nearest competitor, a BMW, was over ten seconds behind – essentially eliminated from contention early in the race.

"This is a tremendous victory for team Steeda” said Dario Orlando, president of Steeda Autosports. "we essentially took out a brand new race car that is based on our Steeda q500 enforcer mustang series of performance vehicles, added other optional Steeda manufactured components, roll bar, racing tires, and Wilwood 6 piston front brake kit and proved that we could beat all comers in this highly competitive race series – it wasn’t even close! The Steeda Q500R is our developmental car we use to test the components we design, engineer, and manufacture under extreme racing conditions – so our retail customer can rest assure that our parts are indeed race proven and track-tested.”

Steeda S550 Race Car

Steeda Autosports’ S550 Road Racer
The suspension innovators at Steeda are close to unveiling the company’s new racer

By Michael Johnson
Technical Editor
September 23, 2016

We recently brought you news of Steeda Autosports’ Scott Boda and his 8-second Fox Mustang. Most aren’t familiar with Steeda’s extensive line of drag racing components, but Scott helped us clear up that misconception. This time around we’re telling you about Steeda’s road racing prowess, and the new car the company is building to showcase its extensive line of handling components for the S550 chassis.

While working with Scott on the write-up of his Fox, he also sent us a few images of S550 road race car Steeda is putting together. This 2015 Mustang GT started out life as Steeda’s product development car. "Now it’s going to be a naturally aspirated road race car,” Scott says.



With any road race car, door bars are imperative to driver safety. When it comes to race are construction, Steeda handles the builds in-house. "The car features all of our suspension components, as well as, some trick prototype parts not yet released to the public,” Scott says.
As mentioned, the 2015 GT started out as a development car. Obviously, that means the car was used to design, test-fit, and research what worked and what didn’t. "We are the innovators as we are the first company with replacement vertical links, IRS subframe bushing supports, toe links, alignment dowels, and IRS support braces,” Scott says. "We also feature ultra-low profile jacking rails that are second to none. We are known in the S550 community as having the highest quality parts for the S550, parts that absolutely eliminate wheel hop,” he adds. When it comes to roll cage in the car, Steeda engineers welded the cage into place, and also painted it to match the car’s exterior. For our full range of Mustang Parts for the S550 CLICK HERE

Once the car is ready to race, Scott tells us the car will be aimed at Touring competition, specifically T1, which is designed for the latest performance cars, including Mustangs. There are different levels of Touring classes aimed at varying levels of performance vehicles. With Steeda’s past racing successes, we’re sure this new car will follow in those marks.


So much for the family car functionality, Steeda’s 2015 GT T1 is pure race. The car’s roll cage takes up most of the rear seat area, and factory creature comforts are long gone in the name of all-out speed.

Stay Tuned for more updates and to see the car in action.
