Sneak Peak: 2010 Steeda Q Series Mustang

A few months ago we teased you with a disguised “sneak peak” of our latest high performance Mustang – now, in advance of it’s upcoming official debut in a few short weeks, we are pulling the wraps off and are releasing a much more revealing image of the newest, meanest, and best styled Steeda Mustang to ever rip the asphalt: The 2010 Steeda Q Mustang Series!

With an arresting exterior appearance, that includes an aggressive front air dam that incorporates ample cooling airflow while improving aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicle. This new Q-Series, the result of ongoing intense development and refinement, is guaranteed to continue Steeda Autosport’s traditions of winning both on and off the racetracks.

With hundreds of hours of Computer Aided Design work completed, and extensive computer and wind tunnel analysis completed, as well as vigorous road coarse testing done in secret to avoid the prying eyes of spy photographers, we are confident that we have evoked the next evolution of our halo performance series that is completely without compromise today.

The development of this vehicle series is yet another example how the entire Team at Steeda Autosports takes great pride in designing, engineering, and manufacturing our products with the single goal of providing our discerning customers with the highest quality, race proven and track tested vehicles/components available anywhere.

“Simply put – no other car has won more races and set more records in production based classes than the Steeda Q Series of high performance Mustangs and I am confident that our 2010 version will carry on that same Steeda tradition” commented Dario Orlando, the founder of Steeda Autosports, “In all of our Q-Series of high performance Mustangs, we never compromise or take shortcuts, our customers who demand maximum performance, bullet-proof reliability, and class leading race honed styling wouldn’t have it any other way!”

This latest evolution of the limited production Q-Series Mustang series will have it’s official public debut at the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 3, 2009. Follow future Press releases for complete details about its official reveal – you will not want to miss it!

Introducing Steeda’s Lightweight K-Member

With hundreds of hours of design and engineering development work completed, and exhaustive testing done at various road courses and dragstrips around the country, the Steeda lightweight replacement K-member is simply the BEST available anywhere at any price. The only aftermarket K-Member created under strict ISO 9001-2000 certified processes, it is a no compromise approach for the serious performance handling aficionado that demands the best in an upgrade for to the front end geometry of a ’96 – ’04 Mustang GT.

Many will question: “What is a K-Member?” or “Why would I need this part?”

The answers are simple: The K-member is the large subframe that is bolted to the front portion of the Mustang unibody structure. In addition to providing necessary structural rigidity to the Mustang unibody, this subassembly also has the attachment points for the front suspension components, steering, as well as the engine. It gets it name because when it is viewed in plan view, it closely resembles the letter “K” laid down on its side.

However, if you have a desire to take the performance of your Mustang to a much higher level, then the Steeda K-Member is the foundation needed to build upon. This is because with the Steeda K-Member interface between the frame, front suspension, and engine, it allows you to make modifications,that will enhance your vehicles grip and handling predictability, improving track performance, and at the same time reducing weight and improve the vehicles rigidity.

The K-member itself does nothing for caster, camber, or bump steer adjustment. You still need caster/camber plates and a bump steer kit to adjust those things. The K-member gives you ackerman adjustment and roll center height adjustment.

Constructed of a combination of 4130 chromoly and other high strength alloy steels, this part weighs just ~32 pounds without the spring seats (for coilover setups) or ~35 pounds with the spring seats (for stock-style spring setups).  With the stock Ford K-member weighing in at a hefty ~51 pounds – this setup offers up to 19 pounds of weight savings off of the front end of your vehicle.

Weight savings are only part of the story and there are many other K-Members available in the market today – each has a particular benefit as well as particular shortcomings. The Steeda Lightweight K-Member has been designed to be suitable both on the road courses as well as the dragstrip – without compromising safety, strength, adjustability, or performance. There is a definite reason we invested a significant amount of our engineering resources to bring this product to market. We wanted to design, engineer, and manufacturer simply the BEST product available anywhere and at any price. The Steeda name on this performance part is your guarantee of the highest quality, perfect fit, and maximum overall attainable performance.

If all of this sounds a bit confusing – rest assured that the Sales Professionals at Steeda can fully explain everything you need to know about the Steeda K-Member, and can also assist you in selecting the perfect components that will make your Mustang perform up to it’s fullest potential and your expectations.
