Meh, I miss when mustangs had the mufflers in the middle. Much better soundtrack.


Burnout control eh? Goes well with the cabin noise tube and digital altimeter I guess. "High tech"

I bet the main guy in another group that Lazarus could do a bunch of stuff his new GT500 wouldn't do. (It's been a few years...)

He was pissed to learn he could not do a donut or a good burnout. I knew it had traction control from heck.

I made him take us to lunch, lol.

Lazarus will do a donut with one front wheel going each direction, lol.

The rear looks a bit...ferrari enzo'ish... especially in red. I can live with the front, but the rear...ugh. Sad panda.

Some type of line lock electronically actuated by the PCM - either through the PCM to the ABS, or if the brake system is electronically actuated ( like the Toyota prius, no manual front brakes, they are electronically actuated by a PCM for the regenerative braking ).

I cant imagine it would be difficult to make a switch for a manual line lockup through the ABS on most vehicles.

I have a problem doing a burnout in my Chevy SS with AWD .. it just gets traction and goes.

Besides I think doing burnouts is sort of stupid and pointless unless youre at the track.
