    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    So the whole family crammed in my new '14 GT this afternoon for an airport pickup and 100 mile drive to the suburbs. Interestingly enough, the stang responded in a few different ways. Weight distribution was 300lbs front, 400lbs rear, 50-65lbs trunk. First, and most obvious, there was...

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Sorry if this has been posted anywhere else, but I couldn't find it. I have a 2006 V6 'vert with the 16" wheels. They look semi-decent, but I want something bigger. I want to buy some 18" wheels. My concern is weight, as it seems the reduction in tire mass is not as significant as the...
  5. GT500 wheel weights

    Mustang GT500
    I was looking around at the offerings for GT500 "new take off" wheel packages and had a question regarding weight. The 2010 wheels are forged and should weigh less, correct? I can't find numbers anywhere. I was wondering if anyone on here has found or taken the time to weigh their wheels. I am...

  7. Suggestions for New Wheels

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hello All, So I've been doing some research into new wheels for my '05 Mustang GT. What I've found is that I'd like to get 18" x 9.5" in the front and 18" x 10" in the rear. I'm willing to give on the 18" x 10" in the rear but it does sound appealing to me. I know a lot of people use the...
  8. Losing Weight with a New Rear Bumper

    2.3L Talk
    Hey guys and gals, We have all discussed many ways to lose weight off our obese bodies, but one that hasn't come up is doing something about the rear bumper. The rear bumper on our stangs are made of extremely thick steel and they are umbareably heavy. So to lose some easy weight, we can change...

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hey, I was at the strip last night with my 05 GT and ran a [email protected] which i thought was a bit high. I have a tune, 4.1 gears, pulley, Drag radials etc and was expecting low 13's. I then weighed the car (and me!) at 3770, which seemed HEAVY! Now im not a big fella (about 180#) so this seemed a...
