Default GT350 + Focus RS playtime

Obviously if the GT350 driver went at it, the RS would quickly fall behind. I imagine the RS driver was having more fun and driving much closer to the limit than the GT350 driver was.

When I drove the GT350 at the North American Track Tour event, the thing I hated most about it was that I only got about 10 minutes to enjoy the car.

But I really liked it.

And I did have some temptation to go after the GT350 instead of the Focus RS. I loved the way it moved around and talked so well. And despite revving to 8200rpm, it actually was very docile below 4000rpm. Far more civility than my GTA has. The miracles of VVT and and technology.

So, the CF wheels of the GT350R aren't good enough for the track?

That's a factory GT350 race car. Pretty reasonable if you look at what you're getting.
