2020 GT500 news

Recommended Posts

Can that be referred to as a 'stock' Mustang tho?  To me it's not a stock Mustang because it's gotten the Shelby treatment.

In the previous video posted, How can that youtuber  claim he set a world record with a 10.665 at 132.96 in his GT500 ......when there was a guy that ran a 10.614 at 133.21 mph in a 2020 GT500 in Bradenton Florida a month ago?

And who really cares?...only you apparently...what's wrong you jealous of the kid?....if you watched the video you'd see it's not the kid

that said it it was a guy standing in the background and big deal anyway I think the kid done great and the whole point was that he did

this near world record run the first time at the track with the car...again who cares besides you.

In one day he had 140,000 views of it.  My guess is he's making a lot of money.  Anyone know what kind of ad revenue that translates to?

I'm just glad to see them finally getting out in the wild.

Speed Phenom is claiming that he has the record for a production GT500 while Evan Smith's run was with a pre-production vehicle.

Thank you for the clarification and intelligently answering my question.. I didn't catch that the Bradenton Car was pre production, the Title said it was a stock mustang.

This car was built by Ford. Shelby had nothing to do with it.

But it did get massive performance upgrades from the Mustang GT, regardless of who did them.  That's why it doesn't seem like a 'stock' Mustang to me.

I think Randy likes it.  A lot.  Amazing that the carbon fiber package takes 5 seconds off the track.  Wow.  I know people doing lots of stuff for 1 second.  That's just insane.

I'll believe it when I see it. Then, you'll be selling it within a year.

I just did a YouTube search for the 2020 GT500 and limited the search to uploads for the past week. On the first page there were three videos with issues on the cars. 

1. Engine light comes on - misfires over 4,000 rpm 70 miles on the car

2.  Clutch overheating after two passes on the drag strip.  

3. Rod knock with 4 miles on the car. 

Not a good start.

If true that's not good at all.

1. Click bait from You Tuber he through the code out of mid management of breaking and launch control.

2. SpeedPhenome you tuber he has really been using his car has ran it on at least 4 strips several passes each plus tracked it at least twice already within a month of ownership. Some click bait in this post as he did overheat clutch dragging it but it is designed to through a code and limit torque for safety when it does he tried to slip the DCT for launch to hard code cleared and he has ran it at strip since.

 

3. this does appear to be a quality control issue out of flat rock but name me a huge manufacturer that’s does not. Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Electric Boat who build Billion dollar weapon systems, aircraft, boats and Submarines have them
