It seems you have to be very skilled to drive one properly. With the amount of power on tap and the weight of the car, it's probably pretty easy to break the rear tires loose...even at speeds where you wouldn't expect it to happen. I would imagine if you were going 80-100, you could still break them loose on a shift.jonsey24 said:Is it just me or are these Carrera GT's a bit of an animal?
Thinking the same thing. I just read an article talking about how Sam Schmidt (former IRL driver, current owner) hit a concrete wall at a measured 55 G's and became a quadriplegic from the accident. Buddy Rice hit the turn two wall at Indy this year (backwards) in qualifying at a measured 75 G's and walked away with a concussion and a bruised back!TAckhouse1 said:Agreed...
