Track Day

Just did my first track day ( 2019 GT PP2, supercharger ) and it was fantastic. The only problem was the rear diff overheating. Has anyone put the GT350 rear diff cooler on their regular GT? Was there and fitment problems?

There are a few diff cooler kits available fairly inexpensive

Nice what supercharger setup are you running. This is one setup I am considering is a 19 GT PP2 and dropping a SC on it a year or so down the road when I get "bored" of the GT. ha Cross shopping GT350, Roush, and 2013-2014 GT500's, but the entry price on the GT PP2 and SC myself is somewhat appealing. The drawback is the others have warranty where PP2 once SC won't...

Read yesterday there is a dealer in TN selling a 2020 GT w/SC for $40K... Have a dealer in OH do that once in a while as well.

Yeah I have heard of 3 or 4 dealers selling base model GT's with a SC for 40K. Interesting concept as they offer 3yr/36K mile warranties on around 600-700HP cars. Pretty interesting times we are living in. haha

you don't really need six or seven hundred horsepower to have fun on a road track -- but it helps!

LOL . . . now that I think about it, I'm not sure it would really help . . . you'll need a very well controlled right foot!

Those extra ponies do help, especially in the straights. I had to de-tune (35 hp) to stay in my current TT class and the loss if very noticeable. Damn 5.0's are eating my lunch now.
