Re: I hate nonmustang friendly roads

Yah the road I live on sucks *** big time...there's no other way to get to my house so I'm forced to take it everyday. Fortunately the highway that's 2 miles away was redone last summer.

I've actually come to appreciate the 5" of snow we got because it fills all the gaps and craters in the road...which is good because it's beating my F150's suspension to hell!

I've scraped my cats multiple times driving the mustang because the road crowns so bad lol.

Big time...I've had my chin spoiler on for 2 weeks and its already getting scratched up- I need to lower the car and I'm afraid to do it. I hate virginia roads (Richmond) they are horrible, especially the highways!!

Re: I hate nonmustang friendly roads

Dude.. Baton Rouge, LA, has terrible roads. Best part is that they have no warnings up for when the road suddenly is grated an inch lower for a section. I almost pissed myself last night because I hit a badly grated "under construction" road so hard is bottomed out my shocks and sparks flew out my rear end. My friend was following me and thankfully got his stang slowed down and missed it. They had no signs posted on a black-top road at night... It was pure and utter torture.

Re: I hate nonmustang friendly roads

I know the pain, my Stage 2 Roush at the side pipes/side skirts clear 4" and so do the mufflers...it makes for a careful driver.
