We’ll be the first to tell you that the Ford Mustang is a fantastic car on the street. It’s got tons of power and handles well without compromising a comfortable ride. But take the Mustang to your local track, though, and a few weaknesses crop up.
The guys over at Big Muscle are able to tell you this full hand, as they brought their 2013 Mustang GT out to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for a track day put on by Hooked on Driving. In stock formation, their Mustang exhibited nose dive, understeer and a twitchy rear end.
The solution? Big Muscle handed over their Mustang to Filip Trojanek of Cortex Racing who fitted their adjustable coilover suspension with lowering springs, torque arm and watts-link system along with changing the overall geometry of the suspension system. The result is a car that can handle street and track driving equally well.
