Motovicity Ticket to Ride – Ford Mustang Build Part 1
You've seen the cars, you've seen the parts, now it's time to check out the builds! We kick off our Motovicity Ticket to Ride build series by visiting the team over at Performance & Styling in Connecticut that won the 2013 Ford Mustang thanks to Motivicity's Ticket to Ride Contest. In part one we take a closer look as the team from Performance & Styling turns up the performance output of the Motovicity Ticket to Ride Ford Mustang with the help of StopTech, Gates, BBK, Royal Purple and Sparco.
Performance & Styling is a performance shop in Manchester, CT dedicated to high performance street builds and race cars alike. Thanks to Motovicity's diverse and complete line of performance parts they've been able to offer their services to a much larger group of performance enthusiasts that include fans of import, domestic and European cars.
Before the Mustang was even delivered to Performance & Styling, the team had already received the majority of the performance parts they would be bolting on. So as soon as the car entered the shop, parts started flying off. Today we'll be taking a closer look at the first phase of performance parts added to the Ticket to Ride Ford Mustang and we start off with the brakes.
Anyone that has driven a stock Mustang knows that the stock brakes are adequate to slow the car down under normal driving conditions, but that's all they are…adequate. A lot of heat is created when you're slowing down a 3,500+ pound vehicle, so if you're planning on doing any sort of performance driving they are an area that should definitely be upgraded. In order to obtain consistent braking performance and pedal feel over long hard driving sessions Motovicity teamed up with StopTech. The StopTech Big Brake kit for the Mustang (part# 82.330.4700.71 ) uses the tried and true ST40 four piston caliper seen in many of their Big Brake kits, along with a set of slotted rotors, and stainless steel brake lines.
