Bought it back in October - Thread here - https://offtopic.com/threads/come-watch-me-mod-the-newest-car-before-i-sell-it-in-3-months.5671262/

Every time I drive it I like it more. It's pretty wonderful...

Stuff I've done/taken care of over the last 2 months...
  • Rock guards
  • Jack pads so I can change wheels easily
  • Replaced the tires on the Signature wheels with PS4S in 305/30-19 and 325/30-19
  • Kavaca PPF installed on entire front end (hood, fenders, bumper, mirrors)
  • Xineering blip module (haven't installed yet, will soon)
  • CQuartz coating on the non-PPF'd panels
  • Little phone/wallet holder on the side of the console
  • Storage nets in trunk/rear
  • All weather mats and trunk liner
  • Removed PO's light tint and added my standard 30% on Windshield and 5% everywhere else
  • Oil change
  • Alignment with -2.5* front and -1.5* camber


The camber adjustment made a really good car, great. Very direct steering and super responsive.

I've just been driving it and putting pleasure miles on it when I can but, I figured I'd post a quick update. Definitely will still call it the best driver's car under $100k... I absolutely still feel it is.

Going to keep enjoying it and Will probably do headers+E85 tune soon. I enjoy the power and they make about 465-470whp stock, I'd like about 525whp out of it and the headers/tune should take care of it. I'll have to buy a gopro, gps unit, and bluetooth mx+ for logging with racechrono - and that's about all for the near term.

Otherwise, I just plan to drive it over the winter when it's nice and when it starts to warm up I'll track it a couple times til the stock pads are gone, then upgrade to 2 sets of pads ... street and track dedicated ones. Eventually I'll do a 4pt cage and harnesses, and then it's basically done unless I decide it needs something else (which I doubt).

Couple quick pics...

Needs some of those sweet yellow accents on the front splitter like real race cars

Still loving the absolute fuck out of my ecoboost that I bought in Sept.
I wouldnt drop the type of $$ you spent on this @Perfect Speed but I love your ride.
Ty sir!

Did you ever drive it with the cups? I’m curious if the PS4’s helped the “I’m trying to kill you” vibe when pavement is less than perfect.

I miss mine. Been looking at them again. 😂
Honestly with PS4s and with all the camber it's not as easy to drive as say, my wife's Audi... But it's nowhere near as bad as the complaints I've heard.
Haven't put the Cup 2s on yet though
More pictures of the Porsche collection. Less of the Mustang.
Some day

-2.5 fr -2.0 rear is perfect for the nc mountains
I gotta double check but I basically asked for the R-spec track alignment in the owners supplement, and then the dealer went farther IIRC it was supposed to be -2.2/-1.3 and I think it ended at like -2.6/-1.7 or so I gotta check the sheet but it's basically a half degree more aggressive than the performance supplement recommends, which is fine - Car is very responsive but not sketchy
Interesting. I was terrified of the car in the wrong setting.
Honestly I think I was just used to it with the Camaro and this thing is just more of the same. Camaro had the same size tires (exactly the same size actually) but were Continental Extreme Contact Sports and it also had a little more camber (-3.0/-1.5) than the 350R and I just was so used it how it behaved that I don't really notice it anymore.
I only really notice it when I get out of another car and right into the 350R (same with the camaro tbh), which is rare these days.
looks awesome
TY!!
What kind of mods are on your neighbors 997 And 944?
The 944 turbo he just got back from a shop who had it for at least 9 months (we moved in back in March and he didn't have it then, just came home like 2 weeks ago), I haven't had a moment to chat with him about it as we've been busy.
All the other 911s (4 of them) and the 944 S he has are all stock other than maybe OEM-ish upgrades for parts that failed or brake pads/tires.

I'd eventually like to just do a quick video interview with him and go over each car. Or maybe do 6 short videos and have him go over each. Think OT would be interested?
