    Red car was hauling and then.....limp mode, cool down, or catch up?

    Looks like there were 2 people in the red car too.

    Someone said they timed red car at 1.21.70

    That puts into dangerous territory

    Just watched this and yes if that time is verified, she is flying and would over take the ACR at this track

    How this fatass is able to run that quick is impressive. It'd be nice to see a tire temp comparison between the GT500 and the GT350 that were out at the same time.

    Not discredit the power it has, but for sure a lot must have to do with them big ass brakes.

    I'm sure the monster brakes and cup 2 tires help a lot.

    There is no way the GT500 is faster than the Viper ACR. Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional. The Viper has a superior chassis, aero that produces over 1000# of downforce, significantly less weight, amazing brakes, and fully adjustable suspension. Just because someone claimed a lap time doesn't mean it is true. Lets see the actual data from a VBOX or AiM solo lap timer. If they have no data to prove the lap time, it is 100% bullshit.

    Remember when I said that this car will hurt a lot of feelings on the road course?

    Without any evidence of that lap time, it is bullshit. Plain and simple.

    I wasn't expecting a 1.21... but I promise you'll be shocked when the proven lap times get throw around.

    Clock it yourself. I did twice, the first lap of the red car, and came up sub 1:22 each time.

    Similar power to weight, 20 500 has tons of downforce too, and newer tire tech which could be determining factor.
    Do we know if it’s been resurfaced, judging by the track I’d say no.

    Bottom line line is the GT500 is competing with the c7z06 with lap time which does compete with the acr on certain tracks.

    Will it be faster same day same driver, who knows? Can it compete(within 1/2 sec) I’d say yes.

    You have no chance proving to this group that the GT500 isnt faster than everything in the world so I wouldnt bother if I were you. They ran with it being faster than a FGT for a while based on some guy's stop watch till DBK came and smacked that nonsense down.

    Im not discrediting the car...its fast as shit, for what it is... Its just painful how quick you guys are to believe A is faster than B with zero facts or data. Lap times arent a simple matter. Grattan has a piss poor lap time list. We have zero clue what the scenario of that gen v viper is and the rest of the cars dont even have a listed driver.

    Ford's testing/setup is 110% guaranteed to far exceed whatever the hell those other people were doing.

    I could come on here with an alternate username, say I witnessed the gt500 beat a Senna and a certain few here would eat it up.

    LOL certain few might.

    BUT, I'm telling you, like I've said from the beginning...this car is going to ruffle a lot of jimmies out there with people that own <$230k vehicles.

    I'm on the lookout for one myself, now.
