Probably want to double check your math.

S2000 2.2 litre 2510, 2573, 2636

94 Mustang 3.8litre 2700 , 2768, 2835lbs


She is a heavy one thats for sure. Ouch, a 15x7in wheel? How is that gonna work out? Didn't it at least come with a 16x7 from the Factory?

I was looking at the 2636 I’m at vs the 2700. Sorry 64lbs

So there are many cars in EP and they all balance out differently. Obviously the Honda engine will be better from the factory than the Ford engine. Sorry, those are just the facts. If you build/develop a certain car because you enjoy the car that's great but remember it's not guaranteed competitive out of the box. That Mustang has a BIG engine for EP and who knows the potential of the car? I sure don't. I know that I've seen some really fast early Mustang's in A Sedan that seem to handle pretty well and there's probably all sorts of go fast suspension parts for that chassis. My point is this, if you like the car, build it. Once you get it on the track and prove that you've done your homework in the engine, trans, diff, suspension, and driver compartment you might get an adjustment but probably not before. I certainly wish you luck though and it would be awesome to see an EP Mustang out there!

There's no sense making your own tracks in the snow. If there's a guy who knows how to make Mustangs go fast, its Andy McDermid. Reach out to him to see if he has suspension, tranny, etc. parts. He's been on the pointy end of the field for a loooong time and can offer plenty of guidance. Email me offline and I can provide an email address. He lives near Brighton, MI.

I wasn’t complaining, I think the s is a bulky one. But it doesn’t look like the mustang is classed to poorly. It has some limitations but we all do and that weight seems on par with what’s in the class.
