Yeah, I have a '14 GT with the track pack. The track pack suspension isn't the typical dogshit you'd think it would be, but it's coming out soon regardless. Fortunately, the track pack includes a torsen diff and Brembos. It's not going to hold a candle to the GT-R, but it's not as bad as you'd think.

Cool you should be fine. The roads really unsettle the cars. What you think is a smooth road on a bike may beat you up in a car. I warned the other guys about it before we went on some roads cause they can yank your off the road or put you sideways. I keep a light yet tight hold on the wheel. I let the car move the wheel a bit rather than try to fight it the whole time. I noticed the mustang that rode behind us using more than his lane on occasion. I'm not sure what the GT-500 comes with stock but it may have not been equipped for cornering at speed or the driver didn't have some track experience.

Good to know. As you may well know, the late-model Mustangs have live axles rather than IRS, which can easily encumber them in situations like you described where the road is uneven. If at any point I felt like I had to use more than my lane, I'd take it as notice that I was driving outside of my ability, the car's ability, or both, and adjust accordingly. I have some track experience, but not a lot. I enjoy a spirited drive, but if the group is going quickly enough that some members are crossing the yellow, I may have to sit out. Obviously I know that you do not advocate that kind of driving, I'd just like to be able to go out and drive quickly but very comfortably and save the -out stuff for the track.

Yeah That was me Hes. I didn't know it was TT until you blew by me lol. Then I was like ahhh...makes sense. I wish I had a harness to hold me in better. I am paralyzed from my nipples down so I have to hold on to the wheel pretty tight with one hand and brake/gas with the other. The G forces on the track are a bit much without a harness for me.
