    The black one on Leno's channel looks amazing.

    I don't really like the black part of the bumper in the middle and the all black negates it. Looks fantastic.

    Nice video Hacksaw, 11.1 looked like you were cooking..do you get on the track often? Or do you think that result is repeatable by a novice?

    Agreed. I had some nervous reservations when I ordered my Shadow Black one, but after seeing Jay’s review, I’m all in. That thing looks sinister.

    "Sinister" is a good word, Doc and even though I'm not intuit :-) the Leno car looked exceptionally sinister so you'll love yours.

    Damn, Ford pulled it off. I was skeptical that this thing would handle, but all of the reviews back it up! Kudos to those of you that will end up with one! Unfortunately my cousin could not find a dealer that would guarantee a Carbon Fiber Track Pack car for them to order. The one dealer that did was not given allocation. :( Would have loved a drive in one!

    Thank you sir. I have a TVS equipped 14 GT with an MT-82 that's been mid 10's and a '19 A10 GT that went 11's bone stock and now were starting to throw some mods at it - so to answer your question I do get to the track now and again.

    To your second question- a trained chimp could get this GT500 to run 10's, given the right conditions. The combination of line lock/launch control allow the car to be extremely repeatable to any one and honestly its one of the most impressive parts about this car. The engineering to make 760HP usable on the street/track/strip is quite remarkable.

    LOl I guess the next thing we will start hearing is that the car drives itself from the other camps. Anybody can get a good time in a GT500 ! Its not a drivers car....just wait.

    Well when all you have to do is set your rpm via a button and put your foot to the floor- what else is there? Its like a video game. Again I saw suits and middle age women who never drag raced a car in their life go low 11's even 10's with relative ease- that doesn't mean its NOT a drivers car, it just means its easy to drive. (At least on the strip) I don't see why that's a bad thing?
