The power is the problem. It is just too powerful to be useful on a track. Streets of Willow, VIR, those are not the best tracks to have a car like the GT500. Sebring would be a good choice.
That's partially true. It's too much power for that chassis and suspension setup. Corvettes can easily handle 700+ horsepower on the track. As the mustangs go up, they get a worse and worse weight distribution, and that couples with 1970s suspension really hurts them. The GT500 should have a lot more suspension upgrades than it does, shove the firewall back, and get rid of the back seats to make room in the cockpit.
