Well, I do 95% of the time, but yesterday was one of those times I didn't.
Running a lot that has so so traction in a straight line, on a hot day with two drivers melts rear tires down and the car gets really loose. I took a shot and Mike and I ran my '07 GT (setup for FS, Koni's, alignment...) for the DC regional. Course was in the lower 50's for time, and I managed to win it over some stout competition--including the 2006 FS National Champion and a multi-time National event, and Nationals trophy winner, both in Shelby's.
This is just me being happy as a pig in crap....
No video (too hard to move all that stuff car to car).
But the point is the course was very sweeper intensive. Had two fast sections, but only one was really transitional (and not that much). I thought I'd be in big trouble, but it turns out that because the lot is not smooth as glass the sweeping ability I gave up was more than made up for in the stability and better power down of the normal GT.
I won't be running a GT @ Nationals. It's too smooth there, but the point is unless you are after a full blown Nationals winner in FS, a Bullitt or GT can hold it's own (and still I'm sure trophy). I've said that for a while now---I just proved it for the second time. Last time I did that sort of test in an '05 I was .3 slower than my own time in the Shelby at the same site. If Nationals were ever held there, I might just run a GT instead!
