MT mentions carbon ceramic brakes... I didn't think they used carbon ceramic brakes on either GT350 variant

Duplicate thread, but I'll yield to this one since I think it's a good idea to have all the reviews in one place.

Here are a few excerpts to entice you to read the story:

"Ford wants this 5.2L flat-plane-crankshaft-powered muscle car to shred club tracks around the country. And it does, as personally witnessed from the passenger seat of the GT350R at Grattan Raceway ... "

"This Mustang flies. Ford engineers said that they benchmarked Porsche for its dynamics and performance. Ultimately, on Grattan's two-mile track, Ford says that that the GT350R beats the 911 by .1 seconds."

"The suspension, which on the GT350R includes a number of enhancements over the regular GT350, uses MagneRide dampeners, which can adjust dampening every 20 milliseconds. To give that some perspective, at 50 mph, if the GT350R drove through a 1-foot pothole, this Mustang could react and adjust the car's suspension before the tire left the pothole."

Carbon Ceramics aren't even available for the GT350/R.

Sounds like, "Disappointment" isn't an emotion that those of us with an order, are likely to experience.

If disappointment is grinning from ear to ear and not being able to stop.....


Then yup, be prepared to be disappointed.

At this point, I'm willing to forgive a few little factual inaccuracies in return for a gut reaction to the car. When they strap on the instruments, I'll really be paying attention.

it beats, "THE 911".... Which 911 are they refering to? They make many different incarnations of the 911 with drastically different performance capabilities. It will be nice to see just how amazing the gt350 is.

Nice - it looks like the shift lights were set at the redline.
