After heading to the track to see what Mustangs were the fastest, we knew that Maximum Motorsports was the group to help us with this Mustang. They race what they sell and have a vast amount of tuning expertise. Because Popular Hot Rodding's Mustang will be flogged on all forms of racetracks, not counting the street, Maximum's engineers opted for a Maximum Grip package that includes most of the items pictured, plus the heavy-duty rear control arms and Torque-arm recommended for dragstrip launching. The installation of these and other rear suspension components launches our buildup series in next month's issue. Whether you exercise your '79-02 pony on a road course, dragstrip or highway--or any combination of these--Maximum Motorsports can custom-design a money-saving "Grip Box" to fit your performance needs and budget. Because the various components are engineered systems, Mustang owners avoid the pitfalls of installing mismatched parts, while spending less than the cost of individual products. Three basic Grip Boxes are offered: Sport; Road & Track (as shown); or Maximum Grip. All three levels retain full streetability, and product substitutions are virtually infinite, depending upon the individual customer's exact application. Ours will be on the stiffer side of the options, you can bet.
