Detroit Speed Equipment Mustang

The Pro Touring event Run To The Alamo was held over the weekend. Detroit Speed Engineering (DSE) turned up with their '66 Mustang, equipped with DSE front and rear suspension. For those that aren't familiar, DSE makes very capable front and rear suspension systems for early Camaro's, this is I think their first competition outing in the early Mustang world.

Posts on Pro Touring.com suggest the Mustang has a Roush Yates Coyote 5.0 and 18" rims, fronts are said to be 265/35/18 and rears 315/30/18

Wow - I'd like to hear more from that Mustang...

Did you happen to check out the first video - of the black Studebaker backing out of the trailer? Looks sinister and sounds perfect!

'66 Coupe Ivy Green with White stripes - Shelby hood - R Model front valance - Paxton Novi 1200 - new drivetrain now in the car - forged 331 with Canfield heads - Bullett custom hydraulic roller - Air-Gap intake - Astro A5 - 486 RWHP - SO MUCH FUN!!

The black Studebaker is owned by Jack Chisenhall who established and owns Vintage Air. Posts on pro touring say it has run 200mph at Bonneville with the a/c on....

DSE has been working on developing early Mustang suspension systems. Release date might be March according to some sources. Here is a sample of a non Mustang universal front end they manufacture:
Detroit Speed, Inc. - Products - X-Gen 595 Universal frame

The Mustang suspension system they are making is said to be specifically developed for the early Mustang; and if its anything like their early Camaro stuff, it will be very highly engineered. DSE are known for their 'QuadraLink' 4 link rears in the Camaro world.

At over $5300, the referenced setup is not a great bargain.
I wonder when Mike Maier is going to sell the setup he runs on his car?

If you are going to spend that much money, the Roadster Shop has a much better deal.

"a better deal" when comparing to the JME front clip yes its $5k and jme is 6500 or so.. but jme is all billet alum--

i've already seen the roadster shop one-- looks nice but for $15k ? i would do a full chassis not a front clip.

the art morrison gmax full chassis is $6k- and i can pickup local 2 hour drive for me to AME..

my other choice is to build a custom tube frame like a Riley/scott trans am car and make the FB sheetmetal attach -- this will run 10k or so..

The roadster shop full chassis is $15K, their front suspension is $4995, and uses C6 front spindles. The front suspension includes everything except the brakes in the base price.

you just repeated what i posted prior?

roadster shop full chassis 15k,, AME $6500.. i could build 14" brakes all around and powdercoat all the parts and still have money left over..

the roadster front end looks nice but is it worth double the Art morrisson one?
