Yeah I don’t get this at all. I have a non HP Mach and upstate NY roads are not known for their smoothness and consistency, yet I’ve found it to be very compliant, a great road trip vehicle but also extremely willing and able to dive into a tight apex, stick and power out smoothly.I like the Mach 1 looks but the reviews have not been good. Its like a parts car and not a complete one and why did ford not put the GT500 front suspension under the Mach 1 so it would not tramline down the road. That would have made the car so much more enjoyable. As it is at least on my roads it will wear you out trying to keep it straight down the road. The ride is too stiff and not in a good way. I had a GT350 and it felt so much better in the ride department. They could just have given it the GT350 chassis with the GT500 front suspension, a Mach 1 look and the cheaper 5.0 and been done with it. That would have been an epic car with a perfect chassis and aftermarket support for the power plant. What a car we could of have. Instead we got a parts bin car. Unless you have allot money Ford going to cheap out on you somehow.
The normal mode is more than comfortable enough for daily driving, but the other modes give you different characteristics to play with.
