    You think a SVT engineer is going to read the manual?

    Good point, but the summer tires do lose grip at cold temps.

    It was 2011 with my Mustang GT 5.0L (the year of the first modern 5.0L) when Ford first introduced the summer tires.

    It was really good in 2011.

    As we used to say back in the day, a high performance car does not equal high performance driver

    I always enjoyed trying to drive a slow car fast more than driving a fast car slow.

    First time I drove a gt500 was a test drive in MN winter with the garbage super car tires from the factory. It was like driving on ice and the pavement was bone dry.
