What kind of wonky setup is 2.25" in the rear and 1.5" in the front?

Since the distance the focus is lowered plays a very, very small part in handling, I'll say no to this theoretical car in this super generic challenge.

And what mustang are you talking about? The 09+ cars handle so much better than any of the previous generations. What kind of tires are we talking about? What is the venue: Track, Mountain Road, Autox?

To many unknowns. I would, however challenge any mustang on stock suspension at an autox venue in my focus
