New Guy

Hey everybody. I just wanted to introduce myself. I just ordered a 2006 Vista Blue (new color for 06') Mustang GT. It should arrive in about 6 weeks so I decided to join the Mustang forums and learn a little about the new 3 valve.

I am new to Stangs, this is my first one. I am in Memphis, TN. Any body else in here from Memphis?

To tell about me I am a Senior at The University of Memphis, a business major. I don't get into car rivalries, especially not "Camaro vs. Mustang". I love anything thats fast. My last 2 cars were Z28s, a 93 and a 99. There is no Camaro for now, so I thought I would give the Mustang a try since my 99' Z28 was totaled by some chick in a full size Chevy pick up two weeks ago. It was her fault, so the insurance money made a nice down payment.

I also like to race. My drag car is a nissan 240SX with an RB25DET motor swap and about a million other mods, so I don't really do the whole "import vs. domestic" thing either. The Stang will be a daily driver and see some auto X along with a little drifting.

My first planned mod is suspension. If H&R releases thier coilovers by the time my car gets here I will go with those along with sway bars and a camber kit. Then Borla exhaust and some kind of intake. When my sissy little factory 235/55/17s wear out I will throw on some 18 inch rims. Probably a gunmetal or dark gray of some sort. NO CHROME...EVER!!!!

Well, I think everyone knows where I stand now, so I am happy to be a new member and it is nice to meet everyone.

From another F-Body guy, welcome. You need to bring that GT down to AL. I've been wanting to try one of these new Mustangs...

I just like a wider tire. 245/40/18 front and 275/35/18 rear.

Wider tire = bigger footprint = more traction (in most cases anyway)
