The Stage 2 Mustang is the intermediate model of the ROUSH "Stage" Mustangs. It
includes all the exterior styling components featured in the Stage 1 and adds a
performance handling package that is second-to-none. ROUSH chassis engineers spent
thousands of hours in development and testing to create the perfect set up to allow the
Mustang to carve corners like it's on rails without sacrificing ride quality.
The Stage 2 Mustang suspension enhancements include a larger, stiffer front stabilizer bar to reduce
body roll and provide balanced, neutral handling. It also includes twin-tube shocks with unique valving to
keep maximum tire contact patch on the ground, even while driving on uneven terrain. The springs have an
increased rate as well and are pre-set so they won't sag. In addition, particular attention was paid to the
bushings for more compliance over low speed bumps and to the jounce bumpers, which are designed to act as a
spring assist. To combat the wheel hop common with the Mustang, we designed a unique upper control arm to greatly
decrease or even eliminate the rear axle hop. The last part of the ROUSH handling package includes 18-inch by
10-inch,cast aluminum, five-spoke wheels wrapped in super sticky, Cooper RS3 ultra high-performance summer tires
that were co-developed by Cooper Tire and ROUSH Performance.
The ROUSH Stage 2 styling components include the 6th generation body package, referred to as the "R6" aerobody package.
The R6 aerobody package starts at the front of the car with the newly designed ROUSH upper grille, high-flow lower grille,
corner fascia aero pockets with driving lamps and front chin splitter. Read More...
