    Blake, Yeah we owe you for the reminder. Do have issues with the OEM tires when cold. But us Ford GT drivers know about that. lol Hope to see you next time. The gut feeling in our area is that COTA will honor the few rentals they had booked and paid and shut it down for track days after that...

    Most Incredible Aircraft R/C Video
