MM&FF at the Test Track with a 5.0
Muscle Mustang and Fast Fords recently traveled to Gainsville Raceway where they did an on-track evaluation of the basic Steeda suspension upgrades to a 2011 5.0L Mustang GT. In a no-holes barred evaluation, MM&FF Associate Editor Marc Christ reveals the benefits that a modest suspension upgrade of shocks, springs, struts and swaybars can make to your Mustang.
By first testing the pony to gain it’s baseline performance figures on the track and on the skidpad, they then did a trackside swap of some basic Steeda suspension upgrade components, and then immediately went back on the track and skidpad with the same driver under the same identical weather conditions for an honest re-evaluation – for the results, you just have to see the video!
Suffice to say, the video does an outstand job of showcasing the before and after performance of the Mustang, revealing the degree of lean, it’s trackside manners, as well as it’s skidpad performance before and after the swap. In addition, they also show just how easy it is to perform the suspension upgrades with relatively simple mechanic tools.
Now – just imagine what could be done to the car’s performance level if you added a few more of our suspension components (lower trailing arms, bumpsteer kit, Watt’s Link, etc)….the results would be even more dramatic. Remember – on the track, every fraction of a second on a lap can make the difference between just finishing the race, or finishing in first place. At Steeda, we are meticulous at getting every ounce of performance that can be obtained from a ride without sacrificing ride quality, your Ford warranty, or raping your pocketbook. Remember – more races have been won, more records have been set, and more racing championships have been decided with Steeda Autosports performance parts than any other brand on the market today.
