I have a question, and was hoping someone here can explain a certain phenomenon I have noticed recently. Why is it that a vast majority of newer Mustangs that I run into close-up on the road feel the need to chirp their tires and bounce their engines off of the rev limiters? Honestly, it's a widespread epidemic.

You should ask the GTO and Vette owners as well

A young guy at a supplier I frequent (has a Chevy pickup he's fixed up a little) was telling me "My thing is all about leaving black marks. If I could leave a black mark to China I probably would" What are you gonna say to someone like that. I just smiled and nodded.

I have a very good friend who owns a 2008 Mustang GT. He drag races it every weekend but it is also his fair weather daily driver. He has modified his car to the point where he chirps his tires even when he is not trying to... He has significant trouble with R-compound tires "lack of grip" on the road and has to use slicks to have any chance of control at the drag strip.

For him, muscle cars are "da bomb." However he truly appreciates all high performance cars. He loves my Lotus but would never drive one. He's just never been very good at turning and needs to keep his car straight. Funny thing is he's got that Stang so torquee that he now has trouble keeping it straight.
