I agree: I don't think it's anything to get depressed about either.

But Chevy has a step up with a factory stock track ready option in their 1LE package.

It's Ford's philosophy: comfort and NVH is the priority and handling is second to that.

The nice thing about the S550, which fortunately has also applied to previous Mustang generations is that most dealerships (if not all) will work with you to find a Mustang in the color you want.

Whoa, time to take it down a notch.
I asked if my interpretation and assumption of what you said is correct.

Being frankly blunt, to say a whole Division makes it easier to bring innovations to mass production is naive.
You called SVT an internal division, but it's not. It's a Team or a sub-department of...

Good to know that FRPP has upgraded axle half shafts that you can buy.
And they stood up very well under supercharged power with the car wearing Hoosier drag slicks for shoes.
