Post Handling

Right now i drive a 69 Ford Mustang (w/ about 350hp). I know ofcourse it has a barbaric suspension and, by personal experience, has loads of under steer. I'm planning on getting an mkIV and was wondering the major difference between a heavy powerful car and an light powerful car.

dont we mk3 weigh a 100 lbs less than the mk4?

and yes it is harder to stable a light car with tons of horsepower
and thats why the supra is heavy, so it still stable even on higher speeds

MK3's weigh over 3600lbs with no one driving it. More like 3700lbs if you still have the spare tire and crap.
