Traditionally, the GT350 (and GT350R) has always been aimed towards track use, while the GT500 is more of an earth-rotating, straight line, freeway runner.As far as power delivery, as you all know, the Hellcat is producing just north of 700HP, so we would be shocked if Ford doesn’t take it one step further.Another topic worthy of discussion is weight savings.We all know Ford has recently invested heavily in Aluminum materials and tooling, primarily for the new F-150 line – but Ford Performance has also added a heavy dose of weight savings to the new GT350 and GT350R in terms of carbon forged plastic, carbon fiber wheels and aluminum fenders.“Our new SVT Halo Mustang will have more HP than the Hellcat” claims a Ford rep from a recent CNN interview. If this new behemoth will be a forced induction car, than we can safely assume that Ford will stick with the traditional lobe crankshaft, or at least depart from the 5.2L GT350 platform.The new GT350 if a high compression car, so running boost through it would require quite significant changes.Ford Performance is hard at work on the new GT500, according to fresh reports from Detroit.The powerplant could produce “well over the 700HP mark”, all while “breathing through a straw”.
The greater the number of freeze/thaw cycles water goes through within concrete, the greater the potential for concrete damage.
What effect does a common chemical deicer have on concrete surfaces?
It is widely known that deicers containing ammonium nitrate and/or ammonium sulfate will chemically attack concrete.
This action normally increases the number of freeze/thaw cycles that water goes through, which in turn can increase the potential for concrete scaling.
Each time water in concrete freezes, it expands approximately 9%.
