    I was able to drive the car on Saturday, on the street, drag strip and road course. I will post a link to my story on Hot Rod tomorrow and I will also post my time slips here if anyone is interested. Stay tuned!

    It sounded as if the wind/DA may have had an impact but I'm eager to see if the somewhat general numbers Ford reported initially were beat. I'm also interested to see how consistent the times were. What with testers running the gamut in terms of experience I know this might be a challenge but I would assume that the cars themselves are very close.

    it sounded like it was production line and the cars went from driver to driver and successive runs. Consistency speaks to the heat engineering management that is built into this car. The z06 suffered from lack of high flow cooling. We'll done Ford.

    Yeah, we each had 3 runs on the drag strip (less than 5 minutes stopped and idling between runs) and as soon as we got out of the car, they put someone else right back in it. Pretty sure it went like that all afternoon.

    Curious question, is the factory supercharger on the GT500 watercooled or intercooled in any way?
