I have to admit, I'm disappointed with the Boss 302. If Ford would just ditch the live rear axle I think they would really be a strong competitor.

Really...I never heard anyone say the current generation camaro is a step behind the mustang in handling...until i heard it on that video 1:45. I guess I haven't been paying attention. I really like the Boss 302 but not surprised at the result.
