I dunno, there is magic in the Porsche steering racks. Not the new ones, they are great but not for me. 930 Turbo is my ultimate track car, the little experience I have with them was amazing. The steering on the Boss is very slow and almost completely numb, though I am hoping fiddling with the alignment and tires will help. But I haven't had it on the track yet, so my whole perspective may change.
I do love this car, but it is not nearly as raw or tactile as I was hoping. But that can all be changed once I decide to shuck the warranty.
I'm not saying it's a Porsche 911 but I'm getting more enjoyment out of my Boss than I ever expected and I can't imagine getting much more from a 911 that would fit in my budget. I'm a value investor and the value the Boss represents is hard to beat. ;D
Like I said I love the car, it is a great street car and hopefully track car, I just would like it a little more raw since it is for me a weekend/track toy and that is kind of how it was billed from Ford. Red key hopefully will go a long way, just by removing the throttle hang emissions junk which is driving me nuts, and if I can coax a little more feel out of it through tires and alignment it will be perfect for its intended purpose. Maybe see about removing some of the sound deadening too
I agree about how raw it is. I was worried it would be too raw but it's not even close. TK does add a nice edge to it. I think the upcoming Ford Racing springs will up the rawness factor one or two degrees and then it should be perfect for me.
