Wheel hop is still an issue in all the S197 stick axle cars. Mostly because Ford puts squishy rubber bushings everywhere as to keep things quiet and comfortable for the average Mustang driver, even those plunking down the $$ for a 200mph GT500.SonicVenum wrote:That's part of the reason I'm excited about the 2015 Mustang. For the first time, the full run of Mustangs will be IRS and the chassis was designed around an IRS, rather than having an IRS designed to bolt into a stick-axle chassis, like the Termi. Wheel hop should not be an issue with the '15+ cars like it was with the Termi.fire818 wrote:I think it has a chance one of the first mustangs with IRS and supercharged everywhere I go almost everyguy drools over it..

Production numbers aren't super low, but with just a two-year run followed by a change in body style.
That Termi might end up being a valuable inheritance or an expensive coffin!
And I definitely know how you feel. When I had my Termi, at least girls dug the pretty Sonic Blue. With the Notch, no girl that has seen it has liked it or even given it a second look. Guys on the other hand... always compliments from guys when I take the Notch out. After putting the '96 Cobra wheels on it, I took it out for the first time in a while to go get lunch and got a compliment (from a guy) in the parking lot.
Something tells me the new IRS will be limited by bushings as well, but with an upgrade should be a blast. Switching from rubber to delrin in my IRS was night and day.
