you tell me when I said a solid axle can't do burnouts...
ok, look. If you have a solid axle, you don't have a differential. I've established that the car has a solid axle.
from a USA Today review of the 2005 Mustang GT:
"The Mustang almost wasn't foaled over the issue of rear suspension. "We couldn't make a profitable business case" because the complex independent rear suspension cost too much, Thai-Tang says. The team didn't want to return to a so-called solid or live rear axle, but, "It was a hard choice we knew we had to make. (CEO) Bill Ford is a Mustang fan, but he didn't cut us any slack" on profit margins.
The solid rear axle forces both rear wheels to jump when only one goes over a bump. In theory, that should cause a rougher ride and flighty steering. Nope. Lots of reengineering of spring and shock absorber location and clever design, sizing and placement of suspension components seem to have all but eliminated the ills associated with a solid rear axle, at least during vigorous driving on public roads."
you see where they talk about the solid rear axle? do you? good. Dumbass.

we don't have solid axles in our bimmers. We have either open diffs or limited slip diffs. We have two seperate axles, one that comes out of each side of the diff. a car with a solid rear axle has no diff because the solid one piece axle, as opposed to two axle setups with diff, does not let the outside wheel spin at a different speed as the inside wheel. Having a differential allows one wheel to spin at a different speed as the other, and it requires two seperate axles.

you prove to me that the car has a solid one piece axle and I'll admit I'm wrong.

Well, then I admit that I was wrong about the definition of a live axle. My bad.
Still sucks balls tho.
