Well actually I would have never considered a Mustang, especially a V6 one, until I saw those numbers in Motor Trend. We're talking about a $25K car that goes 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, that boggles my mind.

Pretty sure your solid rear would do just fine in the Indy 500, you're only going in circles. Agreed though, for everyday driving it's not an issue. Not to mention the BOSS is a track beast.
