    what gears are in the car, what are your tire sizes?
     
  3. Mustangs aren't build to handle very well at high speeds...

    I highly recommend you don't push your stock mustang too far...

    I had mine up to about 130 when it was stock (and it took along time to get there :) ) and have been to about 150 with it with the work done to it.

    with the longest straightest road I've ever found in IL or IA I've had my stock 96GT Auto to 147 and it took about seven miles to get their I'd say. maybe more? It doesn't handle the best at those speeds! very light

    Add the full Roush suspension & it handles like a race car at high speeds! Ride is silky smooth & stable unbelievable...
