    I get the idea. However, F1 cars routinely pull well over 4gs of lateral acceleration. They pull 5gs in braking and 2gs in forward acceleration. That's a lot for a suspension to deal with. A GT500 will never see those kinds of forces, unless it's crashing into something.

    To be fair, you do live in hippie/grunge/coffee-bar-lover territory. Not exactly a hotbed for performance drivers. The people there who buy performance cars probably bought them more for show than go.

    F1 cars also get inspected and rebuilt after every race. Microcracks are going to be instantly fixed.

    On a street car, those will not be fixed and owners are going to get pissed when they emerge once the car is out of warranty and they now have to pay $5k for a cross member.

    That's some BMW M5/M3 Rod Bearing mentality there.

    Like I said, the GT500 is never going to see anywhere near the forces an F1 car generates unless it's crashing. So wear and tear of a carbon composite k-member wouldn't be an issue, especially considering very few of them will ever actually go around a race track.

    I don't belive that without test data.

    I'd say a normal street car sees more abuse then a F1 Parade car. Rough roads, gravel, pot holes, up and down the driveway, highway joints, bridge transitions. Ice, snow, salt, rain, mud.

    Start, stop, start, stop. Look how many cars have engine mount issues.

    This isn't a $3m race car, it's a "race inspired" street car.

    Maybe Ford will release a "GT3" or "RS" varient Ala Porsche... Cuttend, paper thin carpet, CG roof panel, no radio, FC buckets, titanium exhaust, CF K-member, etc. Titanium Diff cover, magnesium parts...

    Charger $250k a pop to existing owners with a strong "positive brand presence" for a limited 500 car run.

    Enough, this is way out of control. Only on page 13, and I can add a few of y’all to my kill list in the last few if y’all want. Now, back to page 13.
