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.
And thus, the 2v GT's will live on.
I love making 2v's live on.. in infamy.
Hey, thats down in our neck of the woods. Interesting find, would like to hear the story on this one.
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.
I was at Mooresville dragstrip the other night and a guy almost put a new '18 gt into the wall. Still had the paper tags. I guess that's a way you learn. He kept it straight and fast the rest of the night.
That's simply amazing
Why is that amazing? A soft compound summer tire won't handle cold temperatures well. At 45 degrees, a summer tire's performance is dramatically reduced. As the temps dip below freezing.....dangerous!
Genesis gave me the same warning with my G70 Sport, which has Michelin summer tires.
I've been driving civics and corollas my whole life and this year picked up my Terminator whippled 600rwhp. I've never been above 85mph before. First thing I did was a 5,000rpm drop clutch and then followed with a run through the gears. I looked down and I was doing 140mph at the top of 4th gear.
It was so good.
Watch out, it can get away from you...

it has traction control bro i'm safe
Famous last words.
I’m assuming sarcasm or a joke?
Terminator traction control was horrible.
Just run drag radials full time. Serious on that one.
Only problem with the 13-14 GT500’s for me was going “back” to a solid rear axle car after my last 3 modded IRS rides. My shelby is sweeter by far when carving at part throttle or cruising. Even burning em’ off in a straight line on good, even pavement. But my supercharged 2017 mustang GT and other recent rides were more predictable and stable under WOT or while laying rubber down thru 3rd and 4th gear. I could drift the 2017 GT with good control and confidence. Mainly because of the IRS. What gives us all a bad rep as muscle/sports car enthusiasts is the ability of the masses to just go and buy/finance a 600+ hp ride for those who have never even driven a high performance car. Agree with an above poster. Ability to buy muscle does not make a good driver. I am gonna start chassis mods and a good watts link next on the mod list.
