First miles break up
I juste received my brand new GT500 convertible last week. Since then, I drove about 250 km last week-end. I'm wondering if the car is electonically limited for the first miles ? If yes, what's the breaing up procedure ?
Actually here are my current driving impressions.
I test drove a regular 5.0, and I feel my GT500 is accelerating about just the same, up to 4000 RPM. After that, it seems to be accelerating much more than the 5.0.
If I drive slowly in 1st gear, let say 2-3 MPH, and I push the accelerator pedal down to the floor, I dont feel I can burn the tires, I actually feel that the traction of the 285's tires at the back is very good, on dry pavement at least. Is it normal ? With 510 lbs/ft of torque, I taught I could easily burn the rear tires anytime, or almost....
So far I feel like the GT500 acceleration is more brutal above 4000 RPM....or it's blocked ?
