Road Testing a Roush and Question for Saleen owners?
I just drove a 2002 Mustang GT Roush Stage III today complete with the Blower and full road race suspension kiton it. And MAN this thing grabs cornerslike a friggin German Audi!I mean this damn thing took corners that my Stang would only dare to do at low speeds. And even when taking the corners, I was still able to apply throttle to keep her moving foward without fishtailing outta control! Amazing! Should I try something like that in my GT, I would be all over the damn place and whipping the wheel from side to side trying to keep my beast from losing control. The closest thing I can compare this car to is my Dads Audi A8 All Road.... but with the bite and harshness of a Vette.
My question to Saleen S281owners with Saleen's Suspension package,is yalls suspension similar to that of a Roush? Or is it mainly designed for straight line road race?

Roush has a variety of suspension set-ups. Really depends on which set-up you are talking about. Each have a different degree of handling with the Roush Trak-Pak being one of the most Road course aggressive and fine tuned. Otherwise comparing would take an actual road course test to really find out. You will get a variety of opinions. If you really want to find out, drive both. Otherwise expect many "opinions".

If you drove an early '02 Stage 3 car, I bet it used the '01 S3 springs... which are a bit more aggressive than the rates used in later 02-04. Those things really grab and is hard to beat without going to a full MM set up (or something similar).
I went from a coilover set up (tubular control arms/K member) back to the S3 set up and had improved handling the next time I hit the track.
