    • Ford indicates the Mustang is a drag car by including an electronic line lock as standard on the 2015 Mustang GT

      You know those old jokes about American muscle being good for the straightline only? Well, Ford is reinforcing some of those stereotypes with a line lock as standard equipment. How Ford pulled off getting an electronic line lock fitted and approved with all the liability concerns these days is anyone's guess but it is things like this that make enthusiasts grin with approval.

      The line lock is part of TrackApps suite which also includes launch control and performance monitoring functions like acceleration timers.

      Ford states in the manual the feature is for off-road use only. That begs the question, will Ford record use of the feature and deny warranty claims if they see someone using their line lock daily? Not that anyone would... or would they?

      Props to Ford for doing things like this and making the Mustang drag strip friendly right out of the box.

        That's pretty cool. They aren't shying away from the drag strip.

        if the suspension on this car is as updated as Ford is hyping it up to be then we for sure have a M3/4 killer as promised

        I'm all for the domestics. Apparently the upcoming Voodoo V8 in the GT350 is going to be insane.
