I don't see anything on the go, so here it is...

Brand new never driven Ford GT will be the beast (oil change only), sports soft tires please.

Tracks will be Le Sarthe, Suzuka, and random.

Lounge to open around 8:30 pm eastern, races at 9:30 pm eastern.

TY pokey. Sounds like a fun night. I've been thinking of using the GT's for a while now. Still, I'd rather be on the Gulf Coast beaches this week!

Have a good night all, I'll catch ya Saturday night1

Well, I'm servering a self imposed suspension, so I meant that it figures the Ford GT would be used this week. Oh well..... Hope everyone has fun, it's probably the best car in the game to run stock.

Awesome, always loved the Ford GT. It remains my one ultimate 'if I could have any car' car! elohel

Yes, I love it too, for such brute power it really does handle well stock. This is one of those cars that needs heavy suspension tuning once you add power and take away weight.

Well, I've always found that with the heavier hitting cars, such as the GT, Enzo, or SLR, understanding just how much speed they carry into the corners can make it a bit difficult to allow the car to work well.

If I had a dollar for every time I've heard how the Enzo can't turn, I'd be nearly there to buy a GT outright! elohel

Indeed, yet the Enzo is an outstanding car stock. But can be easily over-driven.

Over driving is the problem. With such power, cars like those mentioned almost beg to be flat-footed out of the turns. Snap oversteer is sure to result!
