Auto manufactures use motorsports to develop and improve their products. We utilize the same principle to develop and improve our understanding of vehicles and what makes them work. We are car guys and we enjoy pushing our cars to the limit and modifying them to extend these limits.
Here is aome new video from Jim's latest driving school at the Ford Performance Driving School in the GT350 Track Attack Program. Excuse the data on the video, he had some trouble with the set up of the system. The tack map and timing are not functioning properly, but the speedometer and G circle can give enough of a sense of speed. This video is in a 2016 Shelby GT-350 with the Track Pack Option.
This video is in the schools 2015 Mustang GT with the Performance Pack.
Try to imagine running 67-70mph off road watching a gps chartplotter so you can advise the driver what is coming up after you land a jump. What a blast. This gives Jim experience at the extreme on how a truck suspension needs to behave while driving dirt roads or offroading. This only adds to his experience base to call on when a customer complains of how his vehicle does while offroading. While we don't know of any of our customers who push their vehicle to this degree, this experience can only increase our knowledge which helps us in dealing with your vehicle's issues. If you aren't buying into that, it is a ton of fun.
