Hi All, after many months viewing I have finally joined.
I am the very happy owner of a Winter White BA GT with stripes (manual). Other than a few gearbox rattles and 1.5L of oil use in the first 2,500km, I could not be happier. What a beast!
My wife now sends dinner down to me in the garage!!
Only thing is I find the beast a little difficult to launch consistantly. Was wondering what other members have found is the best technique for getting off the line. Seems to be a VERY fine line between bogging down and loosing yourself in a cloud of disintegrating rubber.
Anyhow, looking forward to contributing more now I have joined.
Welcome aboard mate,any pic's of your ride,and the only advice I can give you is heap's of practice with launching your car,that's about what it come's down to, you will get used to were you find traction the best, just practice,cheer's.

According to Ford Engineer that ran the GT in Motor mag to a 13.98 1/4 you got to let the tyres down and slip the clutch. Exactly how I don't know but thats what was published in Motor mag (muscle car article?).
Congratulations on your GT,another beast hits the road.
Check your P.M.
