Yay now my screen name is once again justified :afro:

time to join RudeDog's muscle car party!

Love it so far. MS Sync is pretty snazzy. Still gotta learn all the voice commands and what not.

Initial impressions:

- This thing is scary quick. Triple digit speeds creep up fast and the car certainly doesn't feel like it's going as fast as the speedometer says. Just for fun, I turned traction control completely off (secret button combo) and the first 2 gears just smoke the tires and barked 3rd gear hard enough to leave about a food long patch of rubber on the street. (nana2)
- Exhaust is hilariously quiet (though not for long)
- Reverse camera is the coolest thing ever
- Tail is a little floaty when turning in hard. Hopefully incoming suspension bits will fix that.


Right now, I've got JLT's oil separator and a pair of GT500 mufflers in the garage. I'm planning on leaving the cats on but may eventually swap out the mid pipe and axle pipes.

Adjustable Koni sport shocks/struts are backordered but I've got my order in koni's system whenever they start shipping.

Steeda sport springs and adjustable upper strut mounts are en route also.


anyways, here's pics. Will probably get some baseline dyno #'s soon and maybe take it out to our local drag strip to see what it does but after all the transmission drama going around, I'm a little leery of beating on it so I'm thinking if I know I'm not going to be banging through the gears to get a really good time, there isn't a whole lot of reason for me to go run it at all.

Here's the pics. I'll try to get some better shots next week after I detail it (yes new cars need polishing/waxing too)

The color when the sun hits it is just amazing. The metallic flake in the "cherry metallic red" paint was a $400 extra charge but really adds a lot of depth to the color compared to the "race red" alternative which is a brighter but flat red. I also need to get a pic of the interior. The "saddle" interior color is uncommon and the reason I had to wait 5 months to get the car. None existed with the options I wanted. Out of all the compliments from my neighbors and coworkers, the interior leather color is the #1 favorite. It's like the color of a baseball glove with white stitching.

yeah it will. I had to make sure of this. It was one of my wife's only legit requirements of the car. Has to have a back seat capable of holding a car seat. This is the only reason it's not pictures of a C6 Corvette.

can't see the pics, is it a brand new mustang? V8?

Yup!

I love the new Mustangs. I'd really like to have a Gray GT with Black Wheels. :drooling:

That's an awesome ride man, congrats on the purchase.

And, is it just me or are the pics in such high detail, that they look fake? Computer made or something. Werd.

Yeah the first one is the only legit 3 shot HDR. The others are single shot faux hdr done with photomatix 4. It can still take a JPEG or RAW file and simulate HDR reasonably well given the quality of the source shot.

Good idea focusing on the suspension. Will look a lot better with springs too.

This the unedited image converted from RAW format from the camera straight to JPEG with no editing or anything done.
