"Ugly Pony" Drift car project

Since big money started to take over cars with less than 750-800 hp are no longer competitive. And that number goes up every year.
Certified information from an insider.

Yeah it's a more of for fun and the laughs the car will generate as they see me trolling down the street lol. That's why I got on this forum, as I don't know a lot about this age of mustang. I know what a drift car needs and how to achieve it but I don't know the little "quirks" about these cars I guess you could say.

Overall rigidity ,steering angle sharpness and adjustability to suspension characteristics like stiffness & Ackerman angles are of most importance. I would think that rebuilding everything from the firewall forward will be in order. Power and a locking axle are certainly not a challenge to the mustang but the aforementioned will surely be difficult to accomplish and require extensive modification , Good luck sounds like it will be awesome if you can pull it off. Lots of pics would be great. Looking forward to it.

I am going to do some sort of full tube frame and upgrade in the front. I am gonna go with big disc and probably 4 or 6 piston calipers as well as a steering rack and fully custom knuckles to allow for more angle and 0 ackerman. I will hopefully start seriously building it in the next month or so depending on what happens with my truck that I am in the process of replacing the turbo on.

I have officially named the car in what seemed to me to be the most fitting way possible. . .
By spray painting it across the naturally rusty hood of course!

The build won't really start until I finish putting my trucks turbo back on but hopefully it won't be too long before I get to start this thing for real.
