My copy was waiting for me. The Boss had a great showing and was faster than last years GT500. ;D An interesting comment about grip on the LS. They stated the rear had too much grip and noted the 1/2" wider rear wheel compared to the Boss. The also stated the large front splitter didn't provide enough grip and more was needed up front. They did not use the word "balance" when describing the differences.

I just read the piece too. They prefaced those comments with "if we were looking for faults..." Not to say the car is perfect in every way, but if you have to go looking... ;)

More interestingly, though, was that for all of the praise they heaped on the LS, they used very little ink (almost none) to talk about their track experience in this car. Apparently the feel, sound and smell (burning rubber?) of the car did "overshadow" everything else. I guess the numbers speak for themselves.
