Now let me clarify: I was talking strictly about my friend's SVO in the conditions we drove around in, namely the extremely poor condition of Brooklyn's roads. His suspension (stock, I believe) is simply too stiff to even do the 30 mph speed limit on the crappily repaved Atlantic Avenue. Sorry, I should have been clearer. Also, his car does this extremely scary thing where upon sudden acceleration, the car just spins to the right out of nowhere. I was riding shotgun and nearly wet my pants as we seemingly headed straight for a Mr. Softee truck. Of course, my friend knew it was coming and corrected.Originally posted by DOHC 32valve
Also the comment about the SVO...I had an 84.5 SVO mustang and it had Koni fully adjustables, huge brakes, 16" tires and it handled awesome, all of this stock from the factory.....This suspension was way ahead of it time....these cars were great for a stock car......I have yet to run a Rex in turns but would love to.....the comments about the cobra and autox truly depends on the type of track, short turns and short straights the Rex would probably win but anything with longer straights and the cobra would win, again stock vs stock......I wish I could remember the slalom speeds for both cars as well but I can't
And you are the first to talk about the Cobra on this thread. We all know the Cobra has substantially better suspension than the Mustang GT. And of course, there's the pure power. A great car, IMO.
But alas, it has but two doors.
