My stock Mustang GT was able to do 135mph and still be very controllable, and I think that's why the limiter was set at 145 or 149mph. Erik

For 100,000 miles I'd offer $11,000(at sea level) and no more.

You'll have your hands full getting the next shop to determine what you could do from here. Erik

To bad Ford can't seem to want to put a watts link and 285/40/18 sticky rubber all around on their track pack cars. Then the 1LE would be bested I'd hope. Erik

I was wondering if 9.5x18's with 40mm offset would fit 285/40/18's. I think that combo would be exactly flush with the top of the wheel fender. Would they rub on the inside?
