OK, I can see Ford wanting to test stability control systems. I can even see them wanting to use a Volvo since DTSC is a great system, but seriously, did they HAVE to kill a P2R to do it???

Why not, they probably couldn't sell it!


...and on a more serious note, it's probably the only vehicle FORD had available that that the cannon fit in perfectly!

Re: (FEO)

what's the point? I read why they did, but don't know "why" they did.

Re: (T5 for Life)

to simulate what DSTC has to do in a heavy collision to regain control of the car, which is probably more complicated than what they had before (just the car skidding off the road)

just a guess...

I'd aim the cannon towards the rear for an off the line anti-collar gear busting boost as well as a tail gater weapon http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Like I said, I know why they did it, but can't see the point. It was just some engineers idea and they used this as an excuse to do it. It is cool, but a tremendous waste of $$
