no it's not.....unless it's been seriously modified. I will say Ford has done a good job with it and mine only steps out occasionally.

All you needed to do for research is take a look under her rear. It's a good old solid rear axle like God intended Mustangs to be. Across the board IRS started in 2015 models.

And the 2015 IRS has a lot of the same issues as the 99-04 Cobra IRS did... Even for handling where you'd think the IRS would shine there are trade offs between a mustang SRA and IRS. I'm going to just 5 link my SRA and I used to be the biggest IRS nutswinger there was.

Just like anything there is good and bad points. Solid vs IRS, carb vs fi, Iron cylinders vs aluminum. Horse vs Car.

In rebutle to oxs point. There are absolutely no good sides to a horse. Horses are a complete waste of money. Ask me how I know lol.

I watch my neighbors horses when they go away. The good thing about them is horse poo doesn't smell too much because shoveling is 80% of the job. I'm glad I glad my time/$ is spent on a car.

I love horses but they are expensive asshats. But no they don't smell bad at all and getting up to full speed on a horse is a pretty good adrenaline rush.

Owning horses sucks ***. At any given point they can cost you 2000$ plus. There's a lot of money in properly taking care of them
