2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Whoa

July 08, 2011

A Southern California freeway at evening rush hour is no place for a high-powered pony to show its stuff. Stop. Go. Wait. Sigh. The Mustang was champing and raring -- with nowhere to go.

After 15 or so miles at a crawl, there was an opening enough for a little bit of speed. But it was a short run. Suddenly, it was red lights lighting, me downshifting and a romp-stopping halt to the fun. The Brembos did their thing nicely, delivering braking that was "straight, short and highly fade resistant,"as our track test notes put it.

Speed is good. Stopping with confidence is good, too.
