Subscribed.

I used to run my '95 Probe GT & loved it. Looking forward to dodging cones again in the '13 GT. I think I'll stick to stock for a bit--gotta get a handle on the 420HP first.

It did somewhat. The maximum motorsports k member is what really helped out the most

Re: auto x

One thought. You said you're getting into autocross, so I'll assume you have not done much if any performance driving? I'd wait on any suspension mods and work on tuning the loose nut behind the wheel first. I raced the Probe for two years before touching the suspension--I was slow at first and when I moved from GS to STX I was fighting for a win most events. Then I was slow again (Probe was not the best car in that class & past its prime).

As much as I want to mod the Mustang's suspension, I do want to run a few events to get myself dialed in again.

Basically, you don't want to be chasing a suspension tune when you really need to be working on technique.

I have been into racing since I was 5. I've raced moto cross, hydroplane boats, high speed karts, and I haven't missed a weekend of drag racing for two years now. The one event that I raced auto x I placed 3rd. I could prolly use a litlle more time on the track with my car but that don't mean that getting rid of the horrible body roll isn't gonna help. I do understand were ur coming from though..... the drivers skill has most to do with winning.
