the GT350 should be around 4.3 and the R version should be about .04 less

Hi guys. Does anyone have "official" GT350/R 0-60mph times? I hear anything from less than 3.5 to 5's

@  mspenc45 : (17 April 2017 - 09:17 AM)

Is anyone replacing their stock drive shaft on the 2015-17 GTR350? Is it a two piece like the GT?

@  mspenc45 : (16 April 2017 - 09:44 PM)

Just got back from the GT350 Track Attack program at Ford Performance Racing School, and can't say enough about how fantastic the program is! The classes and track time were great, but the added bonus was finding out when I arrived that Dave Pericak, Director of Ford Performance, and Jim Holland, VP of Engineering would be in the class with us!


Not only were they obviously very passionate about the cars that Ford is producing, but they also expressed great appreciation for the people who spend their hard earned money on cars like the GT350. It was so cool to see how they just fit in like a couple of "car guys" and enjoyed the experience just like the rest of us. Would have been a fantastic experience even if they weren't there, but having them in the mix was icing on the cake! When you look in your mirrors and see Dave on your tail, it's pretty cool and yes a little intimidating.


As I said, the program is fantastic. If you haven't signed up yet, make the effort and investment to take advantage of this opportunity. Even if you never plan to take your car to the track, it's a great opportunity to understand the capabilities of your car. Best of all, you're doing it in a school car rather than your own.


I also highly recommend adding the second day in the race-prepped Boss 302FRS. Very different car than the GT350, but still a ton of fun.

I'm going in June, Don.  I'll be sure to tell you how great a time it was when I get back!  (heh heh)  Seriously, it's an opportunity I don't think I can pass up.  For me, this is one of those "you snooze, you lose situations."  If I don't go, I know I'll regret it later.  I have yet to hear anybody post that they didn't have a good time.  As you know the first day is free.  "Free" sorta...  Of course we're still on the hook for expenses and I think the insurance is a must-have.  Still, a chance to track a GT350 with an instructor is the chance of a lifetime.


If you need additional encouragement, I'm sure there are a number of people here who can chime in to "assist" with your decision! :-)
