    Technical reason why our NFGT's can't stay in track mode

    Well the car certainly undoubtedly looks cooler in track mode. It's just not possible to make it the default setting because of the way the car works. Most cars you have to weigh a bunch of considerations in what you're willing to trade to get ride height and suspension performance...

    Technical reason why our NFGT's can't stay in track mode

    There is no workaround. You could pay someone to screw your car up trying. That’s it. I do not recommend. The suspension’s “at rest” mode is the “normal” setting. Track mode is achieved by compressing the car’s secondary springs using hydraulic pressure, which can only be accomplished when...

    A Reminder

    Since there are lots of newer members: Car Wrecks Please note, it has been the long term policy of Ford GT Forum that we do not post pictures and videos of car accidents or damage to other people's GTs. This policy has grown less relevant over time, but when the GT was less of a collector's...
