300 pounds makes a big difference. That's why I refuse to date fat chicks
Guess what the 2015 Mustang gets For a Rear suspension? IRS, but it will not be stamped steel like the Camaros have but the control arms will be aluminum saving some weight!

Every 100lbs extra = a tenth of a second so 3 tenths can come down to the best driver head to head!

really? I am 5'6" and 170 but not fat by any means and a person of the same height but skinnier than me as I am a little bulky can't comfortably sit behind me. Maybe you have shorter legs and sit closer to the front of the car than I do?

I'm not sure I don't sit really close because my dad who is 5'10 doesn't move the seat back much if at all. my friends are also short. I don't know how but in my group of friends we are all either 5'6 or 6'2 kinda weird. Never once have I had one whine about riding in the car though lol. However none of them have nice or fast cars and they drool over mustangs so they just enjoy it no matter the comfort level.

haha I scare the living **** out of my friends when they are in the car. I don't do anything stupid I know my car's limits but I love scarying people who have never been in fast cars. I scared one girl who I've been friends with for 5 years and we currently work together so bad when we went to lunch during work one day that she refused to speak to me the rest of the day haha.

Lol. I had a similar story. My friend wanted to ride in my car and had his gf sit in the back alone like a d*** and she thought his jeep was fast and i gave a little second and third gear pull (not even close to redline) and she started screaming haha i couldnt stop laughing.

Ah haha a fast jeep lolololol.

Yeah I enjoy one particular exit near where I work from one highway to another because it is a very nice angled exit/entrance ramp that recommends going 45mph through it and I had her in the car and was doing 100 post suspension and big beefy summer tires and wide rims. Car just hunkers down and holds the pavement like a boss. Fast you go tighter the car seems to hold. She was screaming holy hell. Car behind me was a riced out civic that tried to keep up and I left way behind. He finally got up next to me and gave me a salute haha.

She has told me since that she loves me so much that she is never gonna make me use my gas when we go to lunch and she will always drive because she is thinking of me. Lol.

See I love to drive my car, but I hate having everyone scream and cry because I park way out, or going places like theme parks where there is no "way out" parking and then I don't want to drive my car.

I put my car above most anything else. I'd rather show up to a club in a beater than my mustang and have to park it somewhere that will get it dings.

I get a hard time from people because they dont understand why i park as far away as possible, just to come out to see one other person park beside me just to be a d***

Yep! I love my current job as it is a private completely fenced in parking lot with security gates. My last job was kinda awesome though because my co workers would all park around me and protect my car since it was a public lot. There are some decent people left in the world.

I always park away from other cars. I like it when another Mustang comes and parks next to mine though.

Did you ever think they might be fellow car enthusiasts parking next to you to defend one side? I know that I do this for other nice cars in my door-ding-mobile (daily driver) so that it can take hits instead of them. How many times have you gotten a door ding from someone else parking next to you out in BFE?

It is possible that not every person on this world isn't just trying to piss you off

Also, easy fix to rear passengers:

I had a 2011 370z sport+touring 6mt before my 3013 5.0, I loved the Z, handled like it was on rails, loved the synchro rev, liked the fake suede+leather. Car was fast enough also BUT.... and its a big BUT.... The motor sounds terrible on throttle. Like, on the verge of exploding terrible. Rocks in a tin can terrible. After driving a S2000 for 6 years, I have come to expect a great sounding motor out of my vehicle. The 5.0 sounds remarkable compared to the VQ37.

Coming from a 09 G37, I completely agree.

I was looking at 370Z's for about 2 months, as I've always loved the look of the car. I didn't mind the engine sound when I test drove one, sounded kind of mechanical and unrefined, but being a second car, and a sports car, I like unrefined. That being said, I started the 5.0 and it was a done deal. Looks are always subjective, and I love both cars. Not that it was a factor, but my girl hates the look of the Z, and Nissans in general, so she was happy I got the stang. And you can't argue with the the power and torque we have in just about every gear and RPM range.
