    That someone is me, my dads friend bought it. But he is MIA lately. I want to see that damn car. He also owns a competition coupe and just picked up some kind of Lotus Formula car. Ill be sure to take some pics/vids if it shows up

    Duh, I remember now. I just remember me saying something about it then getting a PM.

    He should consider selling it stateside in the future, especially if it's just hiding out and not being driven.

    Always planned to bug you if he decided to sell it but id likely not even know it was for sale before he sold it again. Haha

    You should definitely put the bug in his ear. I was so pissed that it came up for sale when I couldn't make it work.

    Luckily, I didn't do it anyways, my ex would've ended up with one of my cars haha

    I anxiously await the VIR Lightning Lap times it will do next year in C&D's Lightning lap issue, maybe even an unofficial Nürburgring time if Ford takes the car over there?

    Virginia International Raceway Grand East Course (post 01/2014) lap times - FastestLaps.com

    OHH.. i didnt know the ACR and '19 ZR1 are a dead heat.. and thats the same ACR driver..

    Its starting to look like the only place the GT500 is unsettling, is in the haters heads

    You aware that the ACR has posted a 4 seconds faster lap than the [email protected] laguna with the same driver in a real test? And that the Gt500 will be around the same time as a C7z06?

    Also, that Im not knocking the gt500 in ANY sense? You are so defensive and mentally dense its hilarious. You also clearly have zero road course understanding. May as well keep on being a professional roll racer

    You sound mad. Are you mad? We were talking performance and you went personal. I think your mad, but i dont know why.
    Clearly i dont know how to read lap times from the same driver, or how rankings go. I suppose i should start kart racing to get some real world experience

    Well all the pro's start in karts, youd certainly learn a thing or ten.

    Im not the one coming in here yelling "hater" when theres literally not one negative gt500 post in here.

    Having spent some time in a '19 ZR1 I'm pretty confident there is no ****ing way the GT500 can keep up. And if the ACR is that much faster than a ZR1 it'll be no contest.

    The ZR1's are running VIR Full in under 2 minutes and the drivers are still cutting their teeth with the cars. I wish Ford would release official performance numbers already. The bench racing is entertaining, but is getting stale.

    Does anyone know the tread wear rating on the Track Edition GT500 tires? The Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R's on the ZL1 1LE only last 4 track days (about 4 hours) even with a track alignment that improves wear (100 TW).

    These cars are damn capable, but the factory is putting DOT race tires on them.

    I am loving the sound regardless if it can hang with c7z or ACR or not.

    Yea, I dont think the ACR is much faster in a perfect world but its certainly easier to set a fast lap in over the ZR1 even for Randy P. While "slow" in a straight line its a mechanical and aerodynamic monster. I love it.
