Never been much of an issues for me. I like that I can drive the mustang like any other car when appropriate, but unleash the powah! when conditions are appropriate.
I think the OP should do what people with fast and/or fun cars have been doing for decades: wake your ass up early on Saturday and go for a spirited drive when the roads are still empty.
Though I will say that I can redline both 1st and 2nd gear in my car and only be at ~60 mph. Things get hairy when going all out in higher gears though.
