The Ford road cars found out in the 60's that track times go down if you add understeer under acceleration.

I saw a show on Velocity channel about modding an old GT40 with a factory IRS setup they found, and they were terribly disappointed at finding this out.

But the track data they took opposed their opinion; I don't think it changed their opinion tho.

I Like the rear wheels not toeing out under drive power, but maybe that's just me.

Bad bushings would wobble like crazy with no compensators; even blown, they only have ~1/8" play.


Who was it here that left them out of their mark arm swap?

I'd wonder how it drives?

It should have way more oversteer under throttle.
