People actually still do that? On a so called muscle car.

* don't mean the " so called muscle car" statement to you. Just in general BC I don't consider a mustang a muscle car. Just want to clear that up b4 someone blows a gasket.

Just do a few burnouts here and there. Then the front-to-rear tire wear will be even.

It's very difficult to get these cars to handle properly with a "staggered" setup.

I have a set of 03 Cobras that are powder coated and they seem to have a tendency for the powder coat to chip off of the lip of the rim, among other places...

No handling problems at all.

Suspension plays a roll 100% more than wheels/ tires.

On the 11-14 5.0's proper suspension setup means a lot more than the tires you run, as far as actually hooking up. Shows how much you actually know bud.

I'm talking about hooking up. On the street or the drag strip budy. Where suspension means a lot more than the tires you have.

I said "handle properly". Not line my car up in a straight line and give it full throttle.

And quite frankly, Rapinator, I'd kill myself, or at the very least, total my car if I ran the tires that you guys are using...

For me handling means. Keeping the *** end planted.

Never had to go fast on turns to adjust for that.

I've never had any issues with a staggered setup.

My stang runs wild with trac control off and smooth with it on. Plain and simple except in the rain. She can fishtail real quick in bad weather

And you won't if you don't go around corners fast...

Wider rear tires seems to make the under steer problem even worse on these cars.
For a drag car, its best to have the widest tire, that's practical, on the rear and very skinny tires up front.

I only mentioned that last part because I know that you have been wheel... um, err, uh... "challenged" recently Scotty so I just wanted to give you a little refresher...

I've been challenged in many things recently. Although my handling has vastly improved from a bad staggered setup to a set of brand new rubber and better sizing.

It's all too confusing for me. How the different brands and sizes of tires look and fit on different width rims.

THAT I do hate and I hate how inaccurate things can be. I also think that Nitto needs to be called out on their measuring or at least the DOT set a standard that if you say something is 255 wide for example... it had better damn be 255mm wide. The 235s I have now are as wide as my old Nitto 255s, don't even bet me started on a Nitto 315...

Additionally, if I wanted a max handling car I would either, not be in a Mustang or if I was I'd be installing the Agent 47 front, built IRS and probably 18x9.5s all around with appropriately sized autox tires.

However I'd probably sell the Mustang before doing that since you can get a FD RX7 roller for just a little more than the damn A47 SLA kit itself. I've seen some nasty, NASTY RX7s. With a bolt on LS1 and the right setup those things will make WAY more expensive and powerful cars look like complete fools.

I looked into those A47 front ends when you mentioned them previously. Yeah, that's pricey! I'll bet it's a nice front end but I'd still want to drive a car that has one installed to see if it would be worth the money.
All you really need is the tires though, after you have run out of car, on street tires. That and practice, practice, practice.
My Bullitt is still mostly stock. I've been getting my skill level up to speed and just letting the car tell me which weaknesses need to be addressed. You can never have sticky enough tires, so a set of Hoosier A6's is the best that I can do. On those tires, Scotty, I think that I will be bumping up against the times that the fast Corvettes on Hoosiers are running, by the end of the year. I would have come in second place in the class that they run in (SS), ahead of a 7 litre Vette, at the last event
The other weakness is the posi. It feels like I'm driving around with a open 7.5. I'm having a Torsen installed tomorrow, so, hopefully, that will help with getting the power to the ground.
It doesn't take that much to go out, have a good time and be competitive. The most important part is just going out and doing it! There is far more to be gained from experience than any mods. At my first autocross, I was about 5 seconds behind the leader of the class (ESP) that I race in. At the last event, I was about 5 seconds off of the overall top time of the day, which was a Formula Ford race car!

Those FD would be badass with a LS! That's a budget supercar right there!

I need to start taking some pictures of the cars that show up to Marina. You guys will trip out over some of the creations that people bring.
