Sort of neat article they wrote about the Ford GT and what it takes to get a car to live at speeds in excess of 270+mph for an extended amount of time. I think in the article, they say many times how over engineered the car was from factory and what a great job the designers/engineers did on the suspension, aero, engine, etc..... Props to FORD!!!

So good Mark. I'm sure the design team would dig this article. You killed it my friend.

In another thread someone called the 05-06 GT a dinosaur. A 50+ year old design in a 10 year old car that can go 280mph. I'd like to see another car do that! Congratulations Team M2K! Amazing!

Awesome read Mark. You've got engine parts I've never heard of before. What a great accomplishment of motorcar engineering. Very well done.
