I love almost everything about the new mustang, especially the Cobra.
But why oh why did Ford have to stick with a live rear axle? Where I
drive the roads are not very good so I would definitely be able to tell
there is a live axle back there no matter what Ford says. Place foot
here and shoot it...
At least the live axle should be more durable and less problematic.
I'll trade some performance for those qualities. From what I've read they
did a pretty good job with suspension, despite the live axle. I am
putting serious thought into making the Mustang my next car.
Cost and consumer demand. There are many "traditional"
Mustang owners that have expressed a preference for the live
axle. And, it doens't seem to be a big deterent to road
racing performance. See :
