And buying a mustang is a automatic entry in the owners support group.
One your first day on this support group you start like this :
Hi . My name is .............. Its been 3 days since I last found rust, a misaligned panel, etc etc on my Mustang.
You will find lots of like minded sufferers...
Just to add to my above post. 40 years of mx taught me how to save a 2 wheel that’s got all twisted.
A few years ago I started racing main circuit superbikes I was horribly slow at first, actually I was embarrassed. But I never fell.I saved hundreds of near misses.
Eventually after 2 years my...
You’re right Norm.
perhaps I worded a tad incorrect In my meaning of important.
The OP said he lost traction and started a slide. This can happen to anyone driving rapidly. Some snow, water or diesel and your sideways.
Being able to drift really teaches another dimension to loss of...
Lots of good advice for the OP given.
Id like to add, auto cross etc teaches you control to get from A To B fast.
If you want to be safe though, learning to drift is your best bet.
Its all about traction management, taking it to the edge of a spin and bringing it back.
Perhaps go do a drift...
I have driven , just normal street driving a few 911. Good quality and OK. Really nothing special imho. I find a Ferrari or Lamborghini much much more entertaining to drive.
Looks are subjective, but I can’t get it out of my head that the 911 is a beetle descendant. That’s just me.
I used to watch the series wheeler dealers. What always astounded me about the UK cars is how corroded and grotty the undersides , wheels and engine bays are.
I think you are spot on about the salt. Add to it the very wet climate for a large portion of the year and there is a prime recipe for...
Alcantara is best cleaned with a damp microfibre.
I don’t know the sonax stuff, but to be safe I clean gently with microfibre and water and it seems to keep looking new.
I will go look up the sonax and see what it’s about.
I have several friends colleagues etc in the US that won’t touch a mustang as it is perceived a cheap
aluminium is a mofo for filiform corrosion. To properly treat aluminium it has to be surgically clean, alodined, primered with Real high end product and then painted.
the aluminium per say...
I guess the US is more accepting because the cars are priced much lower and hence a expectation of cheap, for lack of a better word.
Outside the US we get charged dearly for the mustang and it’s made out to be this high end car. Which it isn’t.
Truth be told, if we paid US prices we would kinda...
I understand you’re pissed at Ford, but Doing what you’re gonna do won’t make Ford change the quality or lacking customer support.
Youre just gonna stress yourself out.
But hey, it would be fun watching people’s response.
The service I get from BMW is about 500% better than Ford...
As most of us aware, the mustang is a exceptionally cheap made car.
It’s is however a real fun car. In the USA the price makes Up for the quality.
Problem with the rest of the world is many of us pay exorbitant prices and expect same in quality. Dream on haha.
I say make peace or move on.
i think the whole nanny situation you talk about hits it on the head.
As a youngster I remember “stealing” my dads car and learning how to hang the back out.
Stupid as it was, it was a basis for learning car control.
Many youngsters of today really don’t have the advantage of learning to...
Just a guess, but it could be a out of round tire or rim.
several years ago I had same issue with a bmw. Had wheels balanced and still did it. Turned out 2 rims were out of true.
Apparently a pothole or something must have caused it.
I would start by having each wheel run on a balancer whilst...
