Chassis improvements

Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca cars are powered by the same smooth, high-winding 5.0-liter 440 hp V8 as the standard model, since the engine had been created specifically for road racing. However, engineers have focused on delivering power to the ground as efficiently as possible and get the car on a track in the shortest possible time.
"When we built the boss, who had to step back and ask," How can we improve this? "Said David Pericak, Ford Mustang chief engineer." This car is so strong, we realized the entire Laguna Seca was to be only a fraction of a step back from the Ford Racing 302R up. So we went back and pulled daily-driver through the window, cut some things I could not cut along the lines of volume, as the back seat, and built things the way they establish a pure competition production manager. "

Ford Mustang Boss 302 cars to Laguna Seca to remove the rear seats, instead of adding an X-car shows that pairs of support structure between the rear wheels. The brace offers improved chassis rigidity up 10 percent and allows adjustment of the suspension - precisely calibrated Mustang team members - to do their job better.

Standard Recaro front seats, designed by Ford SVT in collaboration Recaro high-performance Mustang models, and is divided into Boss and GT500. Alcantara-covered steering wheel travel provides a secure grip when cornering hard.

Routes of engine power, six-speed close ratio manual gearbox is standard 3.73 ratio, Torsen limited slip differential, revised rear suspension helps produce maximum torque and grip punishing conditions that occur on the track.

The highest rates in spring and a rear stabilizer bar, wider - all updated specifications chief - to help generate unrelenting grip. And drivers can call the exact level of impact resistance of a particular track requires the use of the standard four independently adjustable dampers with specific valves Laguna Seca.

Finishing touches on the race car was just to add the proper wheels and tires: Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca models use 19-inch light alloy wheels racing rims staggered width: 9 inches front, 10 inches behind. R combines ultra high performance tires, 255/40ZR-19 front, 285/35ZR-19 rear, keep in contact with the floor - a job that has ended up more complicated than expected.
"R-compound tires on the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca are so sticky we had to really work on adjusting the rear suspension for drivers who can make the most of them," Pericak said. "The rear stabilizer bar is the largest we have installed in a production Mustang -. Included products SVT rear spring rate is also optimized to work with huge rear tires and the car balance minimum Cronos."

While the standard Ford Mustang Boss 302 cars are broken brake dust shields to help cool the rotors, Laguna Seca are models of Ford Racing front brake ducts that force outside air directly into 14-inch vented rotors in forward, helping to eliminate brake fade and provide hard end, reproducible braking on the track. In general, changes in braking to help refine the direction for drivers who are directly connected to pads - a key benefit for combat vehicles in a road course.

Added, further improvements to the Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca to bring better management of the Mustang ever, with over 1.03 g of lateral acceleration, braking distance shortened meters away from the boss for more than 60 mph, 0-60 acceleration improvements one-tenth seconds, and in general should improve the lap time of one or two seconds on the standard Boss typical street course.
