Default Auto-x'd the Mustang for the first time

I am not a beginner to Auto-x. My last 2 cars saw plenty of time in parking lots going around cones. They were a Supercharged G35, then a Mazdaspeed3.

I was very nervous about autoxing the mustang, mainly because it just felt bigger to me. I have only had the car for 8 months, of which I did not drive it 3 months (MN winters). I also didnt have it set up the way I had my other cars, very well built for autox. I didnt have the funds to buy track tires, so i used the Vredsteins I got with my 20s.

My performance mod list:
20" ZR Downforce w/ 295/255 width
Panhard bar
Eibach struts
FR K-Springs
GT500 strut bar
GT500 AB exhaust
JBA Cat deletes and H-Pipe
Bama tune
Hawk HP+ pads
RBF600 brake fluid
Russel SS brake lines

The result? MY GOD. This car killed it. Out of the 6 runs, around the 3rd one, was so confident and started shaving off so much time. The car was planted, never lost the back end, and just handled beautifully. I cant even imagine what it would be like with dedicated track tires, and coilovers. I did very well, i finished 16th out of 97 when it came to raw times.
And there were some damn good cars out there.

Here are 2 videos. The first one, my camera was messed up, so the sound is BAD. turn it down, but i did great, it was my best run. The second one, a friend took. bad resolution

OP,

Nice work!!!!! It's always refreshing to see a Mustang on a course! I used to run ST (Let's not talk about the car!) what feels like years ago. First thing that comes to mind here! Front and rear sway bars and upper and lower control arms, are you running them at all! I would be very interested to see times after they'd be installed. Let me know if you don't have AM's discount code and shoot me a PM, I'll get you set up!

-Alex

I was going to say! Sway Bars would definitely cut down on some more of that slop as well as make it feel not so lite up front, they're a must if you're an apex hunter! That grille is pretty awesome too. When I eventually ditch the 3V for a Coyote I'm dead set on CDC's Grille Delete I just wish they made something like this for the 11-12!
