The most fun you can have with a mustang period.

I was grinning ear to ear for this entire video. I can't believe what an awesome car ford built.
I got the car in 2012 for 25,100$ with 33 miles on it, I bought the brembo brakes as a takeoff for 800$, boss 302 springs and shocks for 400$, rear bar was 200$. I hammered on it for four 25 min sessions today and couldn't ask for a better balanced fun to drive car.
This is the end of my session, I was sliding the car around a little bit for more dramatic video effect.

Racing on a track definitely is an amazing experience. I had a great time at my track day in April.

That looks like a lot of fun. I've done a few track days with the Porsche club of America and if I'd have slid around like that they would have told me to go home. I have done several auto crosses as well and there isn't much better than hearing a coyote on red line.

The sliding definitely wasn't too bad, just a bit of oversteer, which can be corrected fairly easily. The last one was a gray area for a black flag depending on the track and how strict they are. I can see how Porsche guys would get out of shape from it though.

Track time is just pure fun.
I have to say that listening to the recording instantly made me think of the movie, "Bullitt" and if I could have closed my eyes I would have expected to see the Highland Green 68.

I traded in my Drag Slicks for a set or road racing slicks...I'll never go back.

Gotta love oversteer. Makes it more interesting.

I'd rather have oversteer than the god awful understeer i have now.

Glad you guys liked the video.

Just wanted to add some some things I discovered. I tried the shocks on 1 first, then on setting 5 as the Boss 302 manual recommends. The car became twitchy with the shocks on 5. Definitely more oversteer, and not friendly when it started to slide. Kind of reminded me of my C5 Z06 on crap tires, in that once you exceed the optimum slip angle it kinda falls off a cliff.

Played around and for me setting 2 was the most fun to drive, and also the fastest. I ran 3 high 1:49's before the sliding video on setting 2, on 5 I was consistently in the low 1:51's.

I think it all boils down to the 235mm tires I'm running. If I had the 255/285 like the Boss I'm sure 5 would have felt better. Without enough tire though setting 5 just made the car twitchy and hard to drive.

our tracks rule is 45* lol, that last one would have likely been a black flag. Its funny you mention running the Boss shocks on 2, i run mine on full 5 all around, but i was also running square 295s. There was a clear difference between 1 and 3 for me, however i'm on all stock GT sway bars and it looks like you have a Boss rear sway bar? Honestly, i would take that off and go back to the stock bar, it will make the rear end less twitchy. If anything, you should have added a stiffer front bar. Granted, thats just me talking and how i like my cars set up, some people prefer a loose rear end. It just depends.

The 235s (or maybe even that rear bar like i mentioned) aren't doing you any favors, but i think a lot of the "oversteer" could be tuned out by just getting your track out a little better. For example, around 1:30, not sure if you held the wheel so long for the sake of added drama like you mentioned, but i would have unwound it about 2-3 seconds before you did and gotten back on the throttle. Not trying to sound nit picky though, the mustang is a pretty fantastic car on track.

Yeah I was intentionally pinching off my line both to induce oversteer, and to give myself a little more track to gather up any extra oversteer, case in point that last corner. That much oversteer at my usual track out point would have put both rear tires in the grass.

I've seen so many different specs on rear bars I'm not sure what mine came with I've read 20mm or 22mm. The Boss 302 is 25 and the Boss 302 LS is 26. The whiteline is 27mm, as for the actual roll stiffness though I'm not sure what the specs are.

I totally agree the car would be faster with more rear tire and/or less rear bar, but as I learned chasing lap times at the Nurburgring in my 1998 Firebird Formula, good handling is not necessarily fast, often the opposite is the case. I always set my fastest laps with the car in full on axe murderer mode. Same is true of my C5 Z06.

If everything is perfectly under control, you aren't going fast enough.

Definitely no way to have more fun than this! My gopro might disagree though...


Sadly I couldn't capture the engine or exhaust noise though, I guess I have to invest in an external mic... and a new gopro case/mount.
