(All four sway-bar links were bad, and they were what made the clunk sound I mentioned to the dealer.)
Stiffer springs and shocks, special sway-bar tuning, a stiffened chassis and wide tires led to the fastest Mustang ever to lap the Ford test track up to that point.
Who would've known that Kyle Busch, who's led in the points all season, would sink like a stone in the standings after broken sway-bar bolt led to a severely squirrelly vehicle condition, finally spinning him out in a wreck that he'd never quite manage to come back from-at his worst, he was 11 laps down, and slid from first to eighth in the final points standings.
Busch had sway-bar problems early in the race, fell out of the lead pack and later brought out a caution when his car spun out of Turn 2.
