dual exhaust. The weight is only 300lbs heavier then my 96 Cobra if I
Well now, I didn't realize I had an F Stock Overachiever setting in my garage!
However, I DO need to either take issue with a few of the points made here
about this car, or else go back to my garage and double check the specs on
what I bought...
I just mounted new tires on my LSC this past weekend on its factory 16" rims
(after blowing the ENTIRE tread off of a non-speed rated tire at only 22%
higher than the posted speed limit). IRS? I Don't Think So (and really could

it's the fastest "Mustang" I've ever owned (of the 7 Fox types I've had at one
time or another since 1979).
