@SavetheManuals, Thank you! That makes me feel better. Thinking back on the YouTube video I included above, the guy is a military flight instructor and seems to know what he’s talking about. BUT, he also said in the video that he “overdrives” the car. So, that’s consistent with your observation that most mustang incidents are, essentially, due to driver error as opposed to electronic nannies intervening. I’m a firm believer that smooth inputs are key. Re tires, I used Bridgestone Potenzas on my BMWs and loved them. Also had them in an ‘05 Toyota MR2 and loved them. I’ll definitely add them to my short list of tire options. One thing I was hoping for is a tire that can be cross-rotated, vs just front to back, without having to take the tire off the wheel. It just seems like that will enable me to get the most life out of the tires. This group has shared a lot of helpful information and suggestions. I need to research all the options and figure out what looks like it’s going to work best for me. You all are awesome and I can’t say enough how much I appreciate your support.
