Interesting! Be a little more open minded about the newer setup. The 3 link setup is pretty good. I had a panhard bar on my 98 cobra vert and it settled it down nicely. My 01 has a panhard bar and torque arm and the car runs with the BMW's all day at the track. I agree, the old 4 link setup was a stinker, but the solid axle is very durable, and great in the 1/4 mile. Think of it this way, Porsche 911 is rear engined 6, mustangs have a v8 with solid axle. It's not optimal, but its the soul of the vehicle.
