Mustang fails......But why ?
« on: March 23, 2017, 07:26:53 am »
Over the last couple of months i have seen allot of video on mustang fails. But surely all cant be driver error. Is it too much power down low or the fact that they dont have IRS on the older models. Any thoughts  :thumbsup:

More like a matter of no car in the world will make you a better driver.It's a skill you learn.Some are born with talent but even they have to learn.

I think it's all down to driver skill and the fact that said driver doesn't know the car the way they should and tend to underestimate it's power.

What Gabrie said.

RWD cars with lots of power and torque can be a lot of fun if you know what you are doing.  Some of these chaps just think you can put your foot down hard with the wheel turned and its just gonna behave with TC off-  It doesn't!
"When you turn your car on, it should return the favor..."

Audi RS6 V10 twin turbo, revo, downpipe, exhaust and BMC filters
