I don't mean that there's not a market, it's just a question of reaching profitability with the (inevitably) small market size for such a hardcore variant. Hopefully Ford Performance continues to take care of the hardcore enthusiast/weekend club racer/pro racers with a program similar to the FR500S/C and 302R/S.
blacksheep-1 said:The joke is the new mustang has the roof off a 350Z and the wing off an STI. I think, and this is just my opinion here, that the new cars roofline was exaggerated to allow the air to flow around it and therefore make a smaller wing more aerodynamically viable. The current cars will run 170 (or so..lol) but are carrying the large Steeda spec wing in Conti. I think an effort has been made to clean that area up a bit to allow the same amount of downforce with more top end. I'm not sure you would be successful using that wing with the older body styles, IMO you'd be better off with the Steeda wing for long tracks and the PWC wing for short ones and leave the new wing for the new car. FWIW it was rumored a few years ago one of our cars spent some time in a tunnel, but that was just rumors.
Hey I remember that conversation. ;D AFAIR the one positive of the Steeda wing was the racers felt it added a bit of stability during high speed braking due to the side plates.ArizonaBOSS said:Supposedly the GT/CS / Laguna wing was supposed to go on the 302Rs but Ford Racing couldn't get Grand Am to buy off on it; so the Steeda wing from the 500C was retained.
