I'd probably end up doing this... On a deserted mountain road and the only person I'd kill is myself.

Maybe sports cars should come with their own specific license and driving test before ownership? It should be an earned privilege. I mean, all driving is a privilege, but especially a sports car.

Not the driver's fault. The car clearly wanted to kill itself because it got riced out. Hope they finished it off with a bullet through the hood and then crush the remains.
Good thing it wasn't a V8 (AFAIK) or else it could have been much worse.

100 HP increase at 6000 RPM is pretty crazy for an FPP tune as the 2.0L ecoboost tunes added mostly additional torque only. I know reviewers have complained about power falling off over 5000 RPM so it looks like Ford for maybe for emissions/gas mileage reasons or something capped upper RPM power to which Ford Racing has unlocked.

Keep in mind, Ford has overstated the gains on prior tune offerings. Gaining 100hp at 6000rpms may sound really impressive until you see the stock dynos showing 150-170whp at 6000rpms. Gaining 100hp (flywheel) at 6000rpms could help or not help acceleration. It really depends on how the curves look.

I had the FPP tune on my ST for awhile. Power drop off had a lot to do with the tune going pig rich up top due to catalytic convertor "saving" mode. All in all it was definitely worth it for the better throttle response and smoother power delivery alone. My first thought was "this is how the car should have came from the factory".

I'm guessing these guys are turning the traction control off. I had a 2013 gt for almost 4 years and with the slightest ability to countersteer it never got out of shape (with nannies on)

I'm really torn between the new mustang gt and wrx/wrx sti. Both are due for a refresh. Hopefully subaru will add some power but I'm not holding my breath.

Two vastly different cars in my opinion. I currently have a 2016 WRX, will be trading it in on a Mustang (maybe a Camaro) in the spring.

Absolutely, they are very different. I had onwned 4 wrxs all base 1 2013 mustang gt premium brembo and 2 f bodies back in the day. I probably won't like the new wrx with the open differentials. The 2007 was my favorite.

I never though I would ever own a mustang much less enjoy it. I finally got rid of my 13 and replaced it with a 17 fxtt for the wife. I have been without a manual transmission for 3 months... Starting to have mt6 withdrawals.
