The more I see and the more I read about the '15 Pony, the more my checkbook cringes. Getting sooooo tempted already. Happy Birthday Mustang!

If they're going to hurt themselves with a line lock, they'll probably hurt themselves with 420 horsepower long before they even figure out what the line lock does...

Its a tame 420 with TCS on.

Add the unbridled power + line lock = yikes..


And im not saying a high percentage. Just a few es~

The linelock is electronic and works through the tcs and uses other sensors. Its supposed to have a shutdown built in using the yaw sensors and such if things suddenly get squirrely.
If I can find the tech article again I'll post it.
