Bring your GTs in. They will catch on fire.

https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/a23705989/ford-gt-recall-fire-risk/

The leak originates from a valve that controls the hydraulics in the rear wing assembly. The fluid can drip down onto the exhaust manifold, and if it's hot enough, a fire can start in the engine bay. The GT uses hydraulics to control its aerodynamics and suspension components, capable of lowering itself in just a fraction of a second. It's cool to watch and incredibly effective, but not cool enough to risk lighting the car on fire.

According to Car and Driver, a total of 194 of the 650-horsepower Ford supercars are affected, 176 of which were sold in the United States. The recall includes cars built from December 20th, 2017 all the way up to July 31st of 2018. Ford will install hydraulic check valves, hydraulic fluid filters, as well as all applicable O-rings to cars that don't already have them equipped. The cars will also receive a software update to insure there isn't any excessive pressure in the system. Hopefully that won't affect the speed of the GT's transformation from street to track mode.

Damnit, I was planning on driving it this weekend too. Guess I'll have to settle for my Bugatti Chiron.
