What discipline better emulates everyday driving? What can you do all day continually drag race or road race? You got it ,look into our suggestions from weekend warrior to dedicated racer.
For a level one, street legal, fun to drive street/sport occasional track we offer:
Ford Motorsport FR-3 kit. Complete with all hardware, front strut brace, front and rear sport dampers (shocks) and coil springs. Also included are front three way adjustable sway bar and rear sway bar. Nice features include: firm but not harsh ride quality, reduced corner body roll, reduce inherent front under steer (push) and approximately 1" lower ride height front and rear. You can't beat the price at $1395, our installation includes lock tite and professional installation for $ 668
When the Mustang ride height changes thru suspension movement and when lowering the car, the rear axle move side to side and is no longer centered under the car. This cause the body to "dog track" and not follow a true track down the centerline of the car. Bodymotion will install a heavy duty adjustable rear panhard bar and center the rear on our Hunter Computerized chassis and alignment bench.
Panhard bar $ 169 installation $125 includes re-centering the rear
Combine the above with our precise sport four wheel alignment for correct camber and optimum toe settings, total chassis set up is $178

Our Halon (new and environmentally safe) is state of the art. Unlike chemical extinguishers that cause more harm to electrical systems than the actual fire, halon is clean and once evaporated is undetectable, cake and eat it too!

This car drives great and is not rough over bumps, this car will be a daily driver (lucky commuter) and its owner will have fun at the race track on weekends|
