My Orange Fury GT 2018

Dream car of mine to own here in Australia and purchased new in 2018. Has been daily driven with about 40,000 klms so far.
Coming from a road bike back ground for track and road riding I thought id start tracking the Mustang to see how it performs.
First three track days have been fun and slowly been upgrading areas when needed including suspension , seat and tyres so far.
Ill be looking to get the handling dialled (understeering currently) first before adding any power and progress my times on my local tracks being Sydney Motorsport park ( fast open track) and Luddenham Raceway ( short technical track).

Next mods ill be doing to the car will be;
Installing the adjustable Whiteline Sway bars front and rear
More aggressive alignment
Maybe upgrade the coilvers as they feel undersprung in the front and wider tyres.

I've joined the forum to share my experiences and gain further knowledge for the greater community to enhance the car and my experiences on track. If you gt guys and girls have the recipe for a great handling car let me have it. i dnt want to spend years reinventing the wheel im a better driver then engineer.
