    Misleading HP

    You guys are preaching to the wrong choir. Tell this to @IceGamer and @RaceRedder I'm not the one with the problem with how the Mustang hp is advertised.

    Misleading HP

    I suppose it's a difference in culture. If Europeans are used to cars being sold with wheel hp being advertised and then buy an American car not knowing engine hp is the standard, I could see how that could appear misleading. Need to compare stats in the same units of measure. 500hp crank vs...

    Misleading HP

    There is no over exaggeration. They advertise the car comes with an engine that makes 500 hp.....because it does. If people can't wrap their heads around drivetrain loses, that's their problem.

    2024 GR Toyota Supra 45th Anniversary Special Edition Unveiled

    I really wish they offered a cheaper model say with cloth seats and such. I think it's a tad over priced. Otherwise, probably one of the best sports cars you can buy right now. Definitely one of the lighter weight options.

    2024 Mustang GT: X-Pipe vs H-Pipe on the Dyno! Not The Results We Expected...

    Thank you. Everybody wants to make a 10-15 min video these days when the same info could be conveyed in one sentence.

    Pre-Owned Dark Horse Out There

    They all do it. When the Supra first came out, I saw a local dealer had one, asking for *I kid you not* $100k. Sad thing is, someone probably paid it.

    To the Road Course (Buttonwillow track) with the 2024 Mustang GT - Overheating and Clutch Issues Aplenty!

    Following for future content. Glad to see someone taking it to the track already. I'm assuming the '24 GT PP has the same "oil cooler" that the S550's have....the water-to-oil cooler that's really there for emissions to bring the oil to operating temp quickly.

    S650 with PP for Track Days

    If they are like the S550's, the A10's come with a trans temp gauge but not the manuals. The PP cars come with diff temp gauge. I don't believe that is the case but I would love to be wrong here. The S550's came with a water-to-oil cooler. It ran the coolant around an oil line which was mostly...

    S650 with PP for Track Days

    As someone who tracks an S550 GT, the PP GT will still need upgrades to be competitive. A 255 wide tire on a 4,000 lb car is a joke. If you want it to turn well, put the biggest tires up front that you can. For S550s (and probably S650s as well) that was 11" wide wheels with 305 or 315 wide...

    Smaller, Lighter Mustang?

    I don't know, I think manufacturers use AWD purely as a marketing scheme nowadays. I don't understand all the hype behind it....then again I live in Socal where a light drizzle is about the most extreme weather we get. AWD would make sense as an option on the "normal" Mustang but for this...

    Lose the AWD and I'm sold!

    Smaller, Lighter Mustang?

    It's definitely doable. Take the Supra and give it a cheaper interior. Take the Civic Type R, chop two doors off and make it RWD. Take the BRZ, give it a turbo and beef up the drivetrain a tad.

    Smaller, Lighter Mustang?

    Yes, lol! Though being able to buy one new would be ideal.

    Smaller, Lighter Mustang?

    I just want someone to make a small, light, still fast, affordable sports car. Mustang = too heavy Camaro = too heavy Challenger = way too heavy Corvette = little expensive and still on the heavier side Supra = also a little expensive and a little heavy 400Z = little on the heavy side Cayman =...

    Smaller, Lighter Mustang?

    Since it seems Ford is toying with the idea of expanding the Mustang brand (Mach E, hybrid, four door, etc) who would be interested to see a smaller, much lighter, more "sports car" than "grand touring" Mustang? I know where I stand but I'm curious if I'm in the minority or not.

    No aero for the R though? Found that surprising considering its predecessors had aero. I suppose it can always be added

    Want a good laugh? Dealer asking $106k for a Dark Horse

    They'll get their asking price, no doubt. Hell, they could ask $150k and someone will still buy it. Hard to negotiate with dealers nowadays when they know someone out there will pay any price.
