Welcome, and great photos. As Bill said, it really is nice to get some track enthusiasts from around the world logging in and participating!Sorry if I left that part out. It's just that in order to swap out those tiny oem brakes, I will need to change my wheels as well, and that's not something that I can afford to do right now.
Tires are Goodyear Assymetric 3 for now. There arent a lot of extreme performance choices for the stock tire size. Suv's nowdays come with sportier sidewalls.
So that leaves me pretty much with a good handling pack for now.

This is the correct link https://www.americanmuscle.com/frpp-adjust-handlingpack-0514gt-assembled.htmlFord Performance all day long, the parts are designed to work together, that link didn't work, or they no longer carry that kit, but those parts are still out there.
@VoodooBoss ran it with the adjustable dampers in the -MGTAA kit. I believe he would recommend it. That said, he did end up upgrading to the CorteX/JRi SA coilovers.Is it sorted enough, or does it leave a lot more room for improvments?
I don’t know of anyone doing a direct comparison. But I think the adjustability - particularly in the dampers is easily worth the ~$500 on any car that sees track time.My question is if the adjustable kit is worth 500$ over the non-adjustable one? If anyone did a comparison between the two that would be great.
Exactly. That is why I'm debating so much this time - because I've already had experience with coil-overs (it was a Ground Control street/track kit with custom spring weights which I can't remember as of this moment) with my last Mustang, and it took a lot of time and effort to get to the right set-up with these coil-overs. And by the time that happend - I sold the car so I didn't get to really enjoy it.I'm old school, I just don't like coil overs on a street car, mainly because they will need to be rebuilt about every 20K miles. They do let you adjust your ride height, but that is the only advantage I can see, except possibly weight, but it's a street car so....The Ford Kit is a fire and forget thing.
