Keeping On Track

There are Mustangs that look the same but drive very differently and a lot of it is down to the tracking or geometry of the suspension alignment. Some cars look great but don’t drive like they should which ruins the experience, then others look as though they will be a nightmare but are wonderful to drive. When we build a car from the ground up, replace suspension or fix a crash repair. The time spent in our geometry workshop is critical to make sure the driving experience will be the best possible, and predictable. This week we had to sort out a car that didn’t handle too well,  we sorted it out but it took a little time as we had to keep adding and removing the shims to align it all up as is the case on the earlier models. We took some pictures of our equipment in place to check the Camber, Caster & Toe. Once finished it was like driving a different car.


We just had an unusual Mustang in for a little work doing it. This is a stage 2 Roush, you don’t get to see many of these little ladies around. Nice example and certainly looks like it means business.

The Alpha Red Mustang has had bit of work done on her, the disc brake conversion has also been fitted and we were pleased with the way this fitted into place. You can expect a little problem somewhere, but this was straightforward text book fit.

With the brake in place the time for her dummy engine fitting in case we need to adjust anything, before the final bolt downs. This engine is another custom build with out standard aluminium sprayed headers and a chrome intake for a little something different.

Check out our Webshop for prices of the disc brake upgrades and the parts we have used so far.
