I had a 2017 Ecoboost before I got the 2021 GT, and sometimes it makes me wonder why I did that. The Eco was paid off and fast as sh*t. Zipping through traffic was a blast. True, the GT is something different, starting with the sound.. and it smells new..Exactly right. The EcoBoost is surprisingly quick. I don't have to go 10 seconds on the drag strip, 12's is plenty quick enough.
And on the road course I had no problem hanging with the GT and my friend's GT350 in the turns. Was quicker than my friend's GT coming out of the turn onto the straight - he had to give me a point by every session.
Comments like that make as much sense as saying, "You take a GT to the track? Should have a GT500 to do that"
