    My GT Performance Edition (GTPE) first track launch with videos, timeslip! 0-60 in 4.12s, 1/4 mile in 12.657 @ 100.02 mph

    Look at the hp/tq numbers. Porsche is purposely manipulating the electric motor output to more closely mimic ICE characteristics. At least in the Taycan Base and Base with the PB+ set up. That 115 trap speed is real. Note the 130mph time of 16.4 secs. Porsche is sacrificing the launch in the...

    My bad. It was only 115mph, haha. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a37853137/2021-porsche-taycan-pbp-by-the-numbers/

    The reason they say Unbridled Extend is faster is because they’re morons. That’s it. When Ford says it’s for track use they incorrectly assumed Ford meant all tracks, even 1/4 mile. They’re assumption is wrong. Ergo, they’re morons. 😂 And I mentioned that Base PBP Taycan in another thread...

    GTPE with Ferrada FR8 Wheels & Continental Extremecontact DWS06+UHPAS Tires

    Agreed, but those are usually lightweight forged wheels from HRE, Forgeline or whomever, not relatively narrow and heavy 30+ lb OEM units.

    GTPE damaged at the dealer: Advice / guidance needed:

    This^^^^. Underrated comment here. example: Our son’s WRX lease was up in May of this year, the balloon was $15,500. NADA, KBB, Edmunds et al. valued it between $24-27K! Vroom and Carvana offered $24.5-25.5K to come get it. But, with the supply of new, satisfying alternatives pretty much...

    GTPE damaged at the dealer: Advice / guidance needed:

    Refuse it. But first, tell the dealer you want half of the $10K ADM they’re gonna slap on it after they replace the bumper cover and sell it to someone else. Presto, $5K richer. Put that towards another one out there with ADM just sitting.

    Just got the GTPE home, lights won’t turn off?

    And oh yeah, almost forgot, stop posting about lights and get your Dragy on already! 😴😉

    Just got the GTPE home, lights won’t turn off?

    Funny you mention Audi, since that whole unintended acceleration fiasco in the ‘80s is what prompted the transmission/brake interlock we have to this day. Even though that really wasn’t due to an Audi defect per se. I’m sure you’ll never have an issue, but, one failed mechanism/solenoid and...

    Mach-E Brake Caliper Covers for 19"

    Not to mention, nobody puts caliper covers on nice, 4-piston fixed calipers anyway. They’re Brembos after all, just not labeled as such except on the GTPE. Maybe high temp paint them or have them powdercoated but, a cover? Yeesh. Now, I can see some folks wanting to cover the rear single piston...

    Just got the GTPE home, lights won’t turn off?

    I know it’s a totally different driveline, but after reading what happened to Anton Yelchin at the hands of his Jeep Grand Cherokee, I’d never in a million years recommend that, or do it myself. Gives me the creeps.

    Great Mach-E GT PE Drag Strip Testing - 12 Runs!

    I’ll 2nd the GT500 allure, if they put a Tremec behind the Predator I’d be 50/50 on it vs GT350. As it is I’m 95/5 for the 350. Rattle trap Voodoo and all. Haha. But, I’ll just put an LSA or Whipple on the SS sedan and put the GT350 next to It. Then I can have my 1 of 287 Red Hot 2 ‘14 SS...

    Great Mach-E GT PE Drag Strip Testing - 12 Runs!

    I’ve driven 3 real GT350s now and all of that FPC vibration complaining, is just way overblown. And yes, the 19-20 have the better aero, suspension tuning and less oil consumption issues. It feels like a race car for the street, only dialed back just enough for daily duty. It’s great. I owned a...

    Great Mach-E GT PE Drag Strip Testing - 12 Runs!

    Gotcha, well, your negative response to my comment in that thread must’ve gotten both of ours deleted then. My apologies if that wasn’t your doing. 😂 And I will enjoy the 5.2 Voodoo because I’m not a production numbers connoisseur, I’m a driver. And you have fun with your Chinese-made Getrag...

    More Mach-E GT 1/4 mile track results

    No problem. Check their track schedule, there could be days where a local club rents it out and let’s others buy in to the rental. Like that local BMW chapter or one of the, gasp, Porsche clubs 😂

    More Mach-E GT 1/4 mile track results

    Find your local track(s) via google and see what type of driving school and/or high performance driving events (hpde) they offer. I’ve had good luck going to track days organized by the local BMW M club even though I drive an SS sedan. I’d definitely get a helmet that fits properly but you can...

    Great Mach-E GT PE Drag Strip Testing - 12 Runs!

    Understood loud and clear. I’ve already narrowed it down to the 620Hp LSA full kit or the LMS 2.9 Whipple 700HP set up. I think 620 is fine and I like the OEM aspect. Now, get that Dragy out and show these clowns how we roll. 3.5s, 7.6s, and 12.1s 👍🏻😂

    Great Mach-E GT PE Drag Strip Testing - 12 Runs!

    Congrats. You’re gonna miss that LS-3 60-150 but you’ll love the PE 0-80 (one day 120) I’m sure. 👍🏻

    Great Mach-E GT PE Drag Strip Testing - 12 Runs!

    Oh look who it is. It’s the guy who cried and reported my comment when I asked what Shelby American was going to offer besides wheels, stripes and so forth for the GT while charging $80K. Tragically pathetic. 🤦🏻‍♂️ I didn’t realize I had to be getting a GT right now to post in here, is that a...
