    Damn what a fun ass car it is.

    From personal experience, not really. A quality tire on a modern car makes that way more manageable than you might think. Even a Michelin PSS or PS4S, makes it fun, but not wicked. DRs are very controllable.

    Canít be in cold conditions though. Thatís nothing, but a slide/smoke show.

    But, people go cheap or neglect tires all the damn time and thatís a big part of that issue.

    This has been my experience as well, of course mine was a big turbo so lag helped.

    Ported stock supercharger, pulley, injectors, fuel pump voltage booster, headers, off road x-pipe, tune + some rear suspension mods and DRs. Not bad. When I saw it was Evolution I assumed it would be basically stock with a gutted interior, hacked off exhaust, and however big of a nitrous shot they needed to be "first in teh 9ines!!!!!!"

    The one I just completed today is about to get some wheels I believe. Either way. The “golden ticket” cars are impressive as hell!

    I’m surprised you didn’t have an allocation for one .

    I didn't want year 1.

    That guy is pulling off the carbon fiber wheels?! Just gonna store them or something? I admit; I'd be nervous as hell of curbing one.

    Saw the rental Guy in Vegas (Houston Crosta) got one and it broke on day one with under 50 miles on it. hard misfire and no power. I am sure it is an easy fix but still a bummer when it just rolled off the delivery truck.

    I agree, however that car is super heavy.

    I figured someone would bring a new one to Mecum Kissimmee, but alas, not a single new GT500.

    It looks like that's the max RPM of the factory launch control, so if it dead hooked a tire wouldn't have done anything for it. It'll be interesting to see how much the trans can handle modded with a raised launch rpm.

    Several new GT350s, which I really like, but no new GT500s. Several slightly older ones, including KR (king of retards) editions as well.
