    “Next Gen” Mustang Will be Electric (EV) Only Claims Autoline

    Lot's of Ford executives stated that there always will be a Mustang V8 so i don't believe a report made by a website that can't even get S650 release date correct (also stated numerous times to be MY' 23).

    So it's not PP car is not Premium car is just a base car with some mods onto it. Thing someone here was able to get windows stickers based on VIN so this will be a start.

    Steeda's Race Car Development - Build Thread

    This is great video. The build still don't mention the MCS RR2's I see. And most importantly when we will learn more about the hardcore setup offer ?

    2017 GT Base Performance Pack?

    Correct. Easy way to find if it's PP is if it hase the oil pressure instruments on the central console.

    Just How Important Is the Traction Control?

    That's how you will end up in the sidewalk though :). The MP4S maybe make a difference but the car is dangerous for a number of reason both a lot of power to real wheels and not that much restricted TC. Sure the TC help but try doing a 90 degree turn and step on the gas while the wheel is still...

    Suggestions on brakes for a PP1 Mustang?

    Did you put something like Motul600 in it ? Brake fluid made huge difference with my OEM brakes I don't think I ever had brake fade or problems to begin with and I'm on my 3rd set of brake pads.

    Ohlins' Adjustable Coil-Over Kits Are In Stock At J&M / hotpart.com

    I currently drive on 275/35 140TW (Soft) Semi-Slicks tires on the track and plan to go with Ohlins + Apex SM-10 + 295/30 (Medium) 240TW Semi-Slicks so yeah I do need extra spring rate. Installing Steeda Front Bar (520 lbs) did help a bit with the body roll but car still unload the inner tire...

    Theoretical Idea

    Don't know if you manage to catch the Sorted or Not show on Youtube but the Benchmark car was GT500 and one of the modded cars was a Whipple GT350R which made more HP but was somehow slower than the GT500 at 60 to 150 by like 1 second (DCT vs TR3160). We can assume that the difference between...

    Ohlins' Adjustable Coil-Over Kits Are In Stock At J&M / hotpart.com

    You think I didn't do enough reading :? I agree but kind of like things like Tune to Win for example. I also agree that car setup is a bit more complex than it seams from the charts.

    Ohlins' Adjustable Coil-Over Kits Are In Stock At J&M / hotpart.com

    Did you drive a 350/R around a track ? Even the R run springs that are good for the road and are more road than track. I work a lot with Kenny Brown (40 years of creating race cars) and his track cars with proven track wins use 800 lb front springs or more depending on track. You are not...

    Ohlins' Adjustable Coil-Over Kits Are In Stock At J&M / hotpart.com

    It's expected from basic car setup charts that increasing front sway bar will add understeer. With the Mustang that is just not the case in fact adding more front bar (to some point) actually reduce understeer in the car you explained why very well but it something that most people that just...

    Ohlins' Adjustable Coil-Over Kits Are In Stock At J&M / hotpart.com

    To be fair the JRZ RS One Touring are 500 lbs front and 900 lbs rear so there are other CO out there running similar rates. Though I'm convinced that maybe the Ohlins need the rear to be 900 lbs.

    from what my BMW friend on the track said: "We don't understand how the things you do to your suspension work or make sense but it's a fact they do" Sure CO is more flexible but they are best used with higher spring rates if you are going to stick 250-300 spring no need for CO is my point. Just...

    Ohlins' Adjustable Coil-Over Kits Are In Stock At J&M / hotpart.com

    I think we had the same discussion in my thread on the Ohlins topic. As I said there is good reasons why they use this rates. Also there is a reason why the Mustang front is better with higher spring rates for corner curving it's called Positive Camber roll suspension (this is the reason why...

    coil over kit

    I don't have Torsen but I don't run very long tracks nor I run a lot of laps. A friend of mine overheated his diff on his convertable so I don't think this issue is limited to Torsen only cars.

    M6G member gets mention in Car & Driver!

    I did 13.5 with my GT on an old Airfield. So yeah I understand how times could be tricky. And also I was trying to make a joke.

    M6G member gets mention in Car & Driver!

    Because: "We shipped the car back to BFP, who, after questioning our ability to test cars..." C&D ability to test cars are questionable :D

    coil over kit
