ROUSH Stage 1 Mustang

We have educated you on the style, specs and driving ability of the stage three ROUSH mustangs, but now, as you may have guessed, it is time for a run-down of the Stage 1 ROUSH Mustang.

Let’s get under the hood!

The Ford Mustang GT can only get better when paired with ROUSH and the Stage 1 is no different.  In your face, all American style with a full range of signature ROUSH-only options, the Stage 1 is a powerhouse.

You will know you are looking at the Stage 1 or RS1, when you see a ROUSH front windshield banner, Stage 1 upper grille badge, ROUSH “R” fender badges, Stage 1 decklid badge, rear faux gas cap “R” badge.  The exterior is finished with a Jack Roush signature graphic on the rear decklid.

The Stage 1 Mustang is from R6 sixth-generation ROUSH aerobody package.  The car is decked out with a ROUSH upper grille, high-flow lower opening (grille eliminator), corner fascia aero pockets with driving lamps and front chin splitter. At the back there is a ROUSH three-piece rear decklid spoiler.  Moving onwards, there is also a ROUSH rocker panel and rear fascia side splitters giving the car a low to the ground silhouette.  To tie everything together at the end there is the new ROUSH rear aero valance featuring race-inspired diffusers made to seamlessly fit the ROUSH’s dual chambered, chrome exhaust tips.

Inside this baby you will find Interior styling touches on the Stage 1 include ROUSH embroidered floor mats, ROUSH center console button, Stage 1 dash medallion, Jack Roush signature graphic on the dash and under the hood is a serialized Stage 1 plaque.

Like the other ROUSH Mustangs, a wide range of optional equipment is also available for the Stage 1.  Some of the extras include exterior, interior, suspension, braking and under hood components.

It is no surprise that the ROUSH Stage 1 Mustange is such a hit!

ROUSH Mustang Maintenance:

As every good vehicle owner knows, maintaining your vehicle is critical.  It isn’t always possible know what is coming down the road (literally or figuratively). Accidents do happen, and vehicles do need repairs, but keeping your car well maintained is the first step to ensuring that you are as prepared as possible for any trouble that your automobile might experience.

Vehicle maintenance and proper care ensures that every drive is as safe and predictable as it can be. Designed to look good and ride hard the Mustang is no exception.

To keep you and your vehicle on the road, ROUSH offers a full line of your typical auto replacement parts tailor made for a ROUSH vehicle. ROUSH offers an abundance of parts made specifically to keep ROUSH vehicles running as smooth as possible.  This collection of maintenance and replacement parts includes ROUSH® air and oil filters, headlamps and motor oil among other things!

Some specs from the ROUSH Performance website give you a good idea, the quality you can expect from ROUSH parts.

The new ROUSH® Oil Filters hold twice the capacity of the leading brand, and offer a high-efficiency 99.2 percent contaminants capture rate thanks to the superior cellulose and synthetic blend material used in the filter material.

The heavy-duty case is designed to withstand five times the typical engine operating pressure; this results in not only the ability to better withstand the cold start surges but also enhanced protection from road debris. A “no-stick,” internally-lubricated, low torque gasket allows for a tight seal as well as easy removal, and the silicone anti-drainback valve keeps the oil in the canister and prevents against dry starts.” (x)

There is a whole range of ways to keep your car in top fighting order, and ROUSH has parts for all possibilities.  If you are new to ROUSH, or what to know more, you need look no further than Capital Ford Lincoln in Regina.

What Makes a Stage 3 Mustang So Special?

Tier 3 Mustang
Experience the very best that ROUSH Performance has to offer…The 2014 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang.

Have you heard? Capital Ford Lincoln, here in Regina, SK. is equipped to give you the Stage Three ROUSH Mustang of your dreams…If you are curious as to what goes into such a Mustang, read on.

Let’s face it the Mustang is, without a doubt, a cool car.  It has that enviable, classic, all American car look and the power to back it up.  This is exactly the vision Jack Roush had in mind when he was looking for his “True American performance car”.  Roush had big plans for a car that could epitomize the power, handling and braking capabilities of race cars, with the drivability, comfort and safety of a luxury car.  This is brought to life, and embodied in the ROUSH Mustang.

The stage three, ROUSH Mustang is a particularly special breed of customized vehicle. The ROUSH chassis alone has had thousands of dedicated man-hours in the drawing room becoming the ideal frame for perfect acceleration, turning and ride a Mustang should offer.  A ROUSHcharged powertrain is at the center of this machine.  It features Twin Vortices Series technology, the R2300 supercharger combined with ROUSH’s High Efficiency intercooler and an OE-level  PCM Calibration boosts the “coyote” 5.0L’s output to 575 horsepower.

Above and beyond that, a partnership between ROUSH and Cooper Tire has resulted in Ultra High Performance Tires that are capable of transferring the ROUSH Mustang power to the ground. The stage three ROUSH Mustang is built to corner like a marvel, and all of these particular components help it do just that.

Standard inside; a custom gauge cluster, ROUSH embroidered floor mats, a ROUSH center console button, a Stage 3 dash medallion and Jack Roush’s signature graphic on the dash. Under the hood are a serialized Stage 3 plaque and a chassis build plaque.

As well there are options for seating upgrades, 20 inch wheels in Chrome, Hyper Black and New Graphite, four different brake packages, and red or black ROUSH engine coil covers are just some of the ways to customize the already impressive base stage three model.

Top 5 Reasons for a Vibrating Vehicle

downloadOne of the most common and most aggravating vehicle problems is vibration. There are many causes for vehicle vibration that can vary from common maintenance issues to costly repair bills. If you start to experience your vehicle shaking it is best to get your vehicle serviced immediately so that the problem doesn’t become worse, or become a safety issue.  Here are the top 5 most common causes of that irritating shake.

Tire Problems:

Tire problems are inevitable after owning a vehicle for a prolonged period of time. It is very important to check your tire pressure, tread, and alignment regularly.

Symptoms:

  • Car vibrates at certain speeds — requires tire balance
  • Tires have separated tread — requires tire replacement
  • Uneven tire wear — requires tire rotation
  • Tires are “out of round” and roll unevenly – requires tire replacement

 Brake Trouble:

Brakes should be serviced regularly to ensure your vehicle is performing at its best. You can refer to your Vehicle Guide to see when your vehicles breaks should be serviced. At the Quicklane department when you have your oil changed your brake pads, rotors, shoes, brake linings, hoses, and parking brake will also be inspected.

Symptoms:

  • Vibrations appear or intensify when you apply the brakes. If so, there’s a strong possibility that your vehicle has a warped brake rotor, or rotors.

Unbalanced  Wheels:

Shaky wheels are very common and can occur with increased Km, rough driving, off roading, lots of gravel road driving. Usually all that is needed is a wheel alignment.

Symptoms:

  • Car vibrating directly through your steering wheel
  • Vehicle pulling left or right

Engine Problems:

Sometimes a shake or shudder will emanate from the engine compartment, because the engine isn’t getting enough air, fuel or spark that it needs to run smoothly.

Symptoms:

  •  Jerking occurs during acceleration
  • Feels like a highway “rumble strip”
  • Car starts and drives fine for a while, but later begins to shake

Axle Problems:

Axles can commonly get bent for many different reasons such as, pot holes, hitting a curb, rock, railroad track, or any other mishap.

Symptoms:

  • With this problem, the vibrating often picks up in intensity the faster you drive.

If you are experiencing any vibrations it is important to have your vehicle diagnosed as soon as possible by a trained technician before major vehicle damage occurs. Huge thank you to http://auto.howstuffworks.com for the great information. Good Luck!

Into the Storm

Due to last night’s unfolding events, it seemed appropriate that we offer helpful tips on what to do if you happen to encounter what looks like Hurricane Sasky.

If you encounter heavy lightening, The National -Lightening Safety Institute suggests pulling over to the side of the road asask_stormnd shutting off the engine. They suggest refraining from touching your steering wheel, door and window handles and gear shifts. Riding mowers and golf carts are NOT safe to drive during these times.

If you should encounter tornado winds, the Weather Channel suggests leaving your vehicle and finding immediate shelter within a building. If finding indoor shelter is not an option, you are to get out of your vehicle and lie in a ditch (providing it is dry) or low area away from the vehicle.

Flash floods are common here within Saskatchewan, if you come upon heavy flooded areas DO NOT attempt to drive through. According to the Weather Network, one foot of water can float most vehicles. In the event that your vehicle stalls, abandon it immediately and climb to higher grounds. If there is no alternative route, park your vehicle and get to higher ground if possible, and wait for the waters to decrease.

If you are experiencing heavy winds while driving, slow down and focus on your steering. Be aware of larger vehicles around you (E.g. Trucks towing trailers, buses, etc.) and try not to pass them until the weather subsides.

Always make sure to keep a vehicle safety kit in case of an emergency!
