HANDLING

Shelby GT350® Handling

 

Chassis and suspension

The MagneRide™ Damping System monitors and adjusts itself thousands of
 
times per second for a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled driving experience. But with
our obsession for detail, we just couldn’t stop there. Our attention to detail
drove us all the way down to which way the springs coiled; therefore, requiring
new lower control arms. This racer was designed, engineered and built so the
springs, sway bars and dampers work together as one finely tuned system. We
also added new lightweight chassis components and a set of Michelin® Pilot®
Super Sport tires wrapped around lightweight, yet incredibly stiff, aluminum
wheels. So yeah, the Shelby GT350® delivers a special rush when you get,
behind the wheel.

Braking

The foundation of any sports car is undoubtedly the brakes; therefore, brakes
are a major part of the GT350® magic. So we teamed up front and rear
Brembo®1 calipers with cross-drilled, two-piece, highly-engineered brake
rotors. The huge 394mm (15.5”) rotors up front and 380mm (14.9”) rotors in
the back complete this tight, hardworking system that gives GT350® its well-
earned track credibility.

Independent Rear

Suspension

The 2016 Ford Mustang features an integral link independent rear suspension
that helps minimize body roll and isolate road imperfections for a responsive
ride and precise handling. Aluminum-alloy rear knuckles and H-arms help
reduce unsprung mass. So Mustang now has twice as much anti-squat and
nearly 10 times the amount of anti-lift for better pitch control during hard
acceleration and braking compared to the previous generation.

Front Suspension

Front Suspension

The double ball joint front suspension provides high-performance driving dynamics, allowing for larger
brakes without excessive wheel offsets that would
affect steering feel.
