    No curb weight figures yet, eh?

    I'm a little concerned about the IRS. The lower H-arms are angled, like the early '80's Z cars. The Z cars are notorious for rear end squat on acceleration.

    I certainly hope there are other features to counteract that tendency.

    Well there is that "did you know" tidbit next to it saying they've done work to make sure they're as anti-squat as possible.

    Assuming they have done their homework.

    Don't forget back in the early 80's Datsun/Nissan had great performing track cars, but still couldn't get rid of the squat.

    Did their homework? Lol this is 2013. The stuff is modeled with 3d programs and u can run any simulation you want on them.

    So what!

    It's the translation from computer to production.

    I'm sure you've purchased parts that have been thoroughly designed and feted on computers, that just don't work in the real world.

    That's why forum members ask for the opinions and experiences of other members before purchasing parts.

    I have the 2L Ecoboost in my Fusion, I'm not sold on it yet. It doesn't do all they say it does in the real world; and the transmission sucks!
    So we'll see if Ford can get the IRS right.

    From MM&FF article

    "The IRS is an integral-link independent rear suspension. “The geometry, springs, dampers and bushings all have been specifically modified and tuned for this high-performance application,” said Pericak. The benchmark was the Boss 302, and Ford says the ’15 equals or surpasses its handling, feel, and the level of confidence it inspires. The front end is also new, utilizing MacPherson struts and a double-ball-joint spindle with twin lower links (per side, rather than heavier A-arms) and a mild anti-roll bar. This arrangement allows for larger brakes and improves steering feedback. According to Nair, “it’s easier to drive at the limit, it will flatter the novice and reward the expert.”

    Ford also is offering three brake packages: V-6 Mustangs get two-piston calipers with 12-inch rotors, however, order the Ecoboost and you can upgrade to 14-inch rotors with four-piston calipers. The 14-inchers are standard on the GT, but track dawgs will surely go for the massive 15-inch rotors (upsized 15-percent from the GT500) with six-piston calipers to enjoy optimum braking. Furthermore, there are booster and pedal improvements, all designed to enhance driver feel."
