GT 500 WOT steering issues

  1. Does anyone else w/ a GT500 have trouble w/ the car 'weaving' back and forth under straight line WOT (wide open throttle) acceleration? Mine is hard to hold on the road at anything past 60 mph under full throttle. Yes it does have 550 RWHP but that should not make it hard to drive considering what it has stock from the factory. Any feedback will be appreciated.
  2. I noticed the same problem,I have the same horsepower/torque.The extra horsepower seems to basically overpower the traction control system.If I had to guess I would say bigger and better tires may help stabilize.I am looking for the same solution as well as a way to harness the horsepower,Even from a roll start once you nail it traction goes away.I am averaging 12.5 at 118mph in the quarter mile.With stock tires-Just too much wheel spin.
  3. I have 11" rears with 295/35s. I see no such issue with mine as you describe, so it may be a rear tire width issue. You could probably fit some 295s on that stock rim.
  4. It's all the soft bushing ford gave us. Mine went away when I lowered and put the BMR Adj. Pan Hard on. Same thing with the wheel hop. Either lower it or you'll need UCA and LCA's.
