Caffeine, testosterone, HP and live axle. Solid axle Mustangs "wrap up" the axle and turn right. A Shelby will do it at frightening speeds (I don't recall how I know) through the first four gears. You had better be ready to counter steer, then correct oversteer when the rear comes back in, or you will lose it. Best to replace the rear trailing arms and upper suspension link with stronger pieces.

A lot of the high performance marques know of this lack of ability and awareness of the clients buying their cars and provide a " free " day driving course / track day and instruction .

Never, never, never give up.

Jim, I understand. But maybe it's just our right feet getting smarter.

" But maybe it's just our right feet getting smarter. " Could be right Gary .Hard to break old habits though .Daughter glanced at sat nav last week on trip and coldly asked " you do know your doing 84mph ? " Just overtaking slow moving traffic excuse didn't wash with her either .
