I’d vote Streets too. Big Willow = big offs, especially for novices.
Dunno if I would drag a GTP across the country, but if there was a way to rent-a-ride, I might be able to find a way to ‘share the fear’.
Low profile tires stiffer sidewall keeps more rubber on the road = better handling. The cost is a harsher ride.
Rotating mass at the wheels is a prime area for weight reduction. That’s how you end up with carbon fiber rims that cost around $5,000 EACH! just to save 2 lbs.
Looks pretty composed to me, on what is known to be a fairly technical bit of tarmac.
Considering the way Ford is pitching the GTP, I’m betting there’s going to be a trip to the Utah Motorsports Campus in my not too distant future.
I’ve got no problems with people who can offer valid criticisms of Mr Munro’s engineering assessments or have questions about how he arrived at his conclusions.
But attacking him because he fumbled for a latch? That’s a shitty look that says more about what sort of person you are than it does...
If I remember correctly, Bethania Garage used to offer a free Hard Dog bar replacement if you ever rolled your Miata.

I got about a 45 minute drive in, set it to unbridled and flogged it as hard as was reasonable, considering, and when I was done I was amazed to see I had only used 1% of the available charge.
OPD was so...
I brought this up when I test drove an E4x today. My sales dude, and a few others that were listening to my opinions on the car, were horrified.
No ADM on Mach E’s! At least 3 of them, and the receptionist too. Sounded like it had been drilled into them. Good on mgmnt.
Think I helped a sales...
My ‘16 RS was one of the early builds and had the head gasket recall. Took it into the dealer. 5 pages of repair notes that said things like ‘metal shavings in oil pan’ culminatined with an entry of ‘install new shortblock’!
