Speedknot, your R/T is heavier, but it also has a lot more car situated over the rear axle, so when you get on it, weight transfers hard to squash the rear tires and keep 'em planted. Your Mustang has a lot more power on tap, but also won't transfer the weight as readily, if you just try the "mash it and go" approach that your R/T loves. Instead, you'll just make smoke and go nowhere. With zero insult intended, I think this is mostly a case of learning to drive the car!
You'll often hear hardcore guys say this, and it's very true: Driving a slow car fast is more fun than driving a fast car slow.
But in this case, I think it's more of a case of you just figuring out how to feel the road, and knowing what your Mustang's going to do. It's more of a skill-based car, but the rewards will be great. =)
I smile a lot. It makes people wonder what I'm up to...
