So you want real world testing of aftermarket parts for your Mustang? We've always made a huge effort to actually PROVE, rather than just SAY why our stuff works exceptionally well. Just ask anyone running our stuff, get a ride in one of our cars or trust us and take the plunge yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Lately we've partnered with Dave Stribling, a freelance writer, author of many technical books and Mustang restoration wizard. Dave doesn't let us get of lightly, he is only interested in the 'why' and the 'how', not just sales fluff. We are having to prove to him how our product does what we say it will. Below are the results of his latest experiment with our front coilover system.

Here are some before and after shots of how well the Street or Track front coilover system works on the early cars. Virtually eliminated the body roll on our skidpad test! We didn't change anything but the suspension and the sway bar. We had SCCA driver Chris Brake do the driving and SCCA driver/engineer Bruce Faucett administer the test.

Be looking for the full write up and videos coming soon in Mustang Monthly!

Before - Stock based suspension showing excessive body roll and massive positive camber:


After - Although the picture is not at the exact same angle as the before pic, you can easily see almost no body roll and way less positive camber. Less positive camber gain during cornering is possible with starting out with more static negative camber. A conservative 0.5 degree negative was set for this test. A car that is going to get tortured like this would want to start out with -1 to -2 camber, even more for a track car:


The best part is the owner of the car absolutely LOVES it!
