    I hear you. I went from a go-kart Miata to the Mustang and thought the same thing. Thanks to this forum I took the advice to change the sways and springs. While not a go-kart, its MUCH better than stock and doesn't feel so heavy. 48K miles in 5 years.

    My solution is probably a bit more extensive... looking for a newer Porsche to replace the Mustang.

    I went from a BMW Z4 to a Mustang. The Mustang demolishes it in a straight line and has more toys for a lower price, however the Z4 was pin sharp on turning into a roundabout at 30mph and more whereas the Mustang understeers at little over 15 miles per hour due to weight.

    Question for the OP is what do you enjoy about how a car drives and feels. You can already see the split opinions here - some don't like heavy cars almost no matter what you do to em. Thats a matter of personal preference, and no amount of advice is gonna make you like something you just don't. That said, EBs aren't my cup of tea. Its just too easy to make crazy power with a V8, for about the same money, and any handling penalty doesn't begin to undo that. Why not a Vette? You can't even fill em with groceries. OK for a 2nd car, but not a DD. Peace, I'm not a Vette hater. Have had a C2 convertible for almost 40 years. A big block, because not enough horsepower is for sissies....lol. so ditch the EB idea and get a GT.
