120MPH POWERSLIDE! First Trackday in My Shelby GT500

Auto e motori

It's time to get my Shelby GT500 Carbon Fibre Track Pack out onto the circuit where it belongs! After the recent prep at FSE LA with new tires and an alignment, it's time to reap the rewards, with the added bonus of Billy Johnson taking the wheel to show how it's done in style!
My GT500 may only be a month or two old, but it's quickly been used for just about everything a car like this should do! From daily driving, to a coast to coast adventure, hitting top speed, drag races, and now an outing on a circuit at Buttonwillow International Raceway. With the private day hosted by FSE LA, we're joined by the guys from the trip to Las Vegas, the Mustang GT4, as well as @Speed Phenom and @Joseph Gatt.
It's on track where the Ford Performance team have managed to make the Shelby GT500 into a surprise that you'd never expect from a Ford Mustang. A car this big and heavy should not be able to get a move on around a race circuit in the way that this can; thanks to huge power but also spectacular grip through the corners.
After a few stints at the wheel myself, Billy Johnson takes the wheel to show a bit more of what it can do. As well as racing the Ford GTs at Le Mans and around the world, Billy was also heavily involved in the development of the Shelby GT500 and therefore feels right at home.
Check out Billy Johnson's One Lap Billy channel, setting some serious lap times:
Thanks for watching, Tim

    It's finally track time in my Shelby GT500! This car has done everything; drag races, top speed, coast to coast road trip, daily driving, and now some solid laps at Buttonwillow International Raceway with FSE LA, including Ford Performance driver Billy Johnson getting behind the wheel to get some serious sideways speed...

    You have now experienced the effect of "natural downforce". This is a thing called "weight". When a proper suspension has been applied to the vehicle, weight will give you the downforce needed to get into, around, and out of a corner. I am very happy you have found the joys of a muscle car and I appreciate that you are willing to share it with us.

    I do think ford did an amazing job with this car. I just wish that there was an option for a manual and I wish there was a factory drag pack option for the car. I also wish that Ford was still making the GT350 and that they gave an option for the gt350 to be able to get this 7-speed dct.

Makes more power And handles 3x the amount thanks to magnetic suspension But you enjoy your ford toy.. remeber they make thre fiesta. Holden only make beast. Well atleast did till you all took our workshops and drowned the muscle car builds with dsg's and over priced computer crap

    Shmee is a great sport when someone with tons of experience drives his cars. I love how he lets them drive it, and doesn't whine like a baby when the going gets fast. I remember others (Mondi) when a pro was driving their cars and they just cried about the speed every time the car started to get going good. Great video Tim! Epic car.

    It’s quite a relief that Ford put in the effort necessary to give the GT500 the driving dynamics to match the huge power output. The prior generation of GT500s were (IMHO) rather an embarrassment to the Shelby brand. They were plenty powerful, yes; but they were downright unsafe with a chassis that would routinely put drivers in a scary triple-digit speed and unresponsive suspension nightmare scenario.

    Scheme, when you have that triple picture, that’s all the info anyone would need. Sometimes please just shut up and let us enjoy the moments with you. I know that track, like the back of my hand. But with your poor camera position, cause you wanted that triple view, which did no justice to any of th three views. Crap Little of the car, Crap little of the track, but so much view of you, endless talking. As you can tell, I am angry. Keep Smiling. Cliff Q.
