aFe Sets 2015 Mustang Lap Record at Laguna Seca!
This entry was posted on June 30, 2015.
The aFe team had a great weekend as we headed up the California coast to put the aFe 2015 Mustang GT through its paces at the famous Laguna Seca Raceway. The goal to push the new aFe CONTROL Coilovers and Sway Bars in the track environment and test their performance. We also took the opportunity to test the aFe prototype Magnum Force Stage 2 Air Intake System.
We are pleased to report the aFe Mustang performed flawlessly, and the improved handling abilities provided by the aFe CONTROL Adjustable Coilovers and Sway Bars allowed us to put down a record lap time of 1:43.9 with our own driver, a very quick time that takes this mildly modified Mustang GT into a lap time of vehicles costing triple or more, and including besting previous cars like the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 and 2008 Shelby GT500KR.
Here is a CAD rendering of the 2015 Mustang Coilover along with the Sway Bar

All of these products installed are prototypes, and will be launched soon. In addition to the suspension upgrades and intake, we also are in development on Headers, Cat-Back and a full 3" Exhaust which will continue to add horsepower.
