  1. Picking up my first brand new Mustang! UPDATE with pics

    I agree, I don't like the black roof or the black out chrome, I like the very small amount of chrome badges. For wheels, I tried a few different styles but I eventually ended up with satin black. Nothing else seemed to work right with the orange. Its a bright impact color, so the car takes...
  2. Picking up my first brand new Mustang! UPDATE with pics

    The fastest Mustangs are always orange... good choice... :fistbump:
  3. Hello Carvana, adios Mustang. :(

    I was going to hold onto my car for another year, but these prices are really making me reconsider. I just spent a bunch of money on wheels and suspension, but I kept all the stock parts so I can return it to stock easily. I guess I can sell the parts too. I love my car, and you guys are right...
  4. Faskback or Coupe - Which body style should the next Mustang be?

    I personally wish they would bring back the hatchback, the look of a fastback with more practicality than a coupe.
  5. Absolute mods with Ford Performance Track Handling Package

    Its only my 0.02 cents too man, and your 0.02 cents is worth exactly the same as mine. :) You know what they say about opinions... Not sure what more info I could have provided in this situation. The guy asked about tires for a square setup, of which there are pretty much 3 widths that are...
  6. Absolute mods with Ford Performance Track Handling Package

    I think everyone here knows that aspect ratio is a ratio, based on the width of the tire. When we talk about 30 vs 35 vs 40, we are speaking in terms of what tires fit on our cars. The question was about a square setup using 295 or 305 wide tires. Based on those widths its easy to calculate the...

    I made this spreadsheet for myself when I was tire shopping... I've posted it before, but maybe it will help you choose tire sizes. And yes, I am aware this is a little extreme, its part of being in IT, way too into data collection!
  8. Absolute mods with Ford Performance Track Handling Package

    I am not knocking anyone's tire choice, and obviously looks are very subjective. But I think the 30 tires are just way to thin for the Mustang. The car has some bulk to it, especially in the rear quarters, and it gives the 30s that rubber band tire look. I am thrilled with the look of the 35...
  9. Nitto NT555

    I second that... I have read great things about the Indy 500s and the price is way better than the Nittos. I would have gotten them if they had them in the 305/35 size I wanted. You should have no problem with a square setup.
  10. Just saw they sold more Teslas last year then manual cars in the US

    The real problem is that manual enthusiasts don't buy enough new cars to justify manufacturers offering them. On top of that, even when they are offered, dealers do not order them so the typical car buyer who just goes to the lot and picks from the cars, they don't find manuals. And most buyers...
  11. Just saw they sold more Teslas last year then manual cars in the US

    I have a manual because its more fun to drive, but mostly its about image. My group of car buddies are very much the manual or nothing crowd, and if I got the auto they would have had endless jokes about it. Even my wife thinks all cars should be manuals... she always teased me when I had a GTI...

    All the good performance tires are going to be directional. It really depends on what you want out of a tire, and what size you want. Are you looking for the best performance? Summer tire only? All seasons? Longest lasting? Choice of tire will make the biggest impact on performance of the car vs...
  13. 17 GT Manual PP...How would you mod it with $5k?

    I guess that's true... if you just want to go with a basic FI setup, you should be able to just go with like a Ford Racing kit and technically not have to mod anything else. But those are still $7k or so. I dont have one, so I dont know if there are any long term concerns with broken parts, as...
  14. 17 GT Manual PP...How would you mod it with $5k?

    I wonder if just swapping in some 4.09 gears would give you the feel you want? Something I noticed with these cars is that the Coyote just doesn't have that same low-end grunt that the mod motors had. I think that's a big part of why you don't feel the "pull", and also why outside of the...
  15. Absolute mods with Ford Performance Track Handling Package

    Thanks for the info and videos, the whole thread has a lot of good info and details. I am going to have to try them out in a variety of conditions and see how they compare to the stock PP setup. The comparison to Pro-Action adjs is tricky. In the videos, the Actives seem to be kind of doing...
  16. Absolute mods with Ford Performance Track Handling Package

    Well that's disappointing to hear... what do you think is the problem with them vs the Pro-Actions?
  17. Absolute mods with Ford Performance Track Handling Package

    These are not the Pro-Action adjustables... these are the Pro-Active struts, that are based on the Koni Red Special Active with ACTIVE technology (whatever, its their marketing!). Steeda partnered with them to develop specially tuned version for Mustangs. They are relatively new, and whoever...
  18. 17 GT Manual PP...How would you mod it with $5k?

    True E85 isn't as bad as regular gas. So I guess if you are running catless then you should also get the E85 tune!
  19. Absolute mods with Ford Performance Track Handling Package

    Well that's a very good question! It was not about lack of confidence in the handling, its for comfort. And looks I guess. I got new wider wheels and tires recently. Because of the new tires and wheels, the wheel gap was just a little too much for me. I didn't want to lower the car, but in the...
  20. 17 GT Manual PP...How would you mod it with $5k?

    My two cents: $5k doesn't go as far as you think it will. I spent almost $3k just on wheels and tires. I just spent $1600 on struts/shocks/springs. And there are still a bunch of things I want to do like the stop the hop kit, subframe bushings, etc. Exhaust is another grand. Tune is another...
