Who cares? The GT500 is really going to drive in straight lines for the most part anyway.

GM Chassis Dvelopment engineers are truly world class. But Ford has come closer with the GT350 and I expect a GT500 would be equal or better than a 350 with 250 to 300 more HP. Wow if it's true.

We shall see.

The GT350R is a very good car, but unlike a Camaro challenging to get aligned. It absolutely has to have front camber plates and even then you get minimal negative camber. so we did a little slotting and reliving too. In the rear, they slot the arms, but there are no fences to use eccentric bolts for adjustment. We have our ways of getting it done, but damn.

The difference at VIR for the GT350R factory aligned and JPSS aligned was just under 5 seconds. The driver is a Porsche guy. His daily is a GT4. He had a ball at the last Porsche Club of America event driving the Porsche friends crazy with his Mustang.
