It is... But to get back on topic time will tell on the IRS. I would be curious to see if Moser comes out with a M9 fabricated rear SRA conversion for the new Mustang

My 99 Cobra Mustang rides like it is on rails around corners! I cant wait to get her on a autocross or road racing track. As for drag race she does alright, I took on a challenge the other day and the young man went home with his tail between his legs. When she hit the high revs and power kicked in when I hit 3rd she was gone.

I would prefer IRS in my 2013, but it is what it is. Ford got the solid axle setup as perfect as practical. The IRS competes in most categories and yes, the 2015 would be significantly lighter with a solid axle. However, only the 5.0 has really gained weight. And the weight is added to where it gives the most advantage. As for drag racing, FRPP has already came out with kits that replace the frame bushings with aluminum units, and new HD half shafts are available. With those, the Mustang has been rated at well over 600 hp and no failures. In a few years, no one will think about a solid axle in a car. They may even switch to IRS for trucks.

Street race talk is against forum rules. I'd recommend not posting something about it again.

Sorry everyone, did not know it was against forum rules. Lesson learned!
