I bought this 2011 Race Red GT-CS convertible in NC. I'm the 3rd owner in its first 13,000 miles. I checked it out and all looked good. My research of two years to decide exactly what I wanted lead me to this car. Once I decided that I wanted a convertible and automatic, next was color. When I chose "RED" the search was on. I found a new 2013 in Atl at a dealer, but shortly after, found this unit on Auto Trader with 12,750 miles and it was $12K cheaper than buying the exact same car new (except year model). I flew to Charlotte and picked it up. So the seller says, they bought this car from Rick Hendrick's 80 year old Dad or Dad-in-Law. It's mine now!

I'm keeping it stealth/stock for now but I have gutted the suspension, all Eibach/BMR; single piece aluminum driveshaft with braided steel clutch cable and Barton shifter. The Ford Racing axil back Sports sound like +10.000 of engine work for only $699 and the SCT tuner on the Boss intake makes it fun.
Not much exterior work is needed on a GT/CS maybe staggered wheels and rims. Kooks LT and Cat X-Shrtys, PnC and mill heads and she will flow.
Put a Lower Control Bracket on your LCA to reduce wheel-hop
Imagine a line from the front to rear of the LCA, then a line from the body frame and a line from the LCA connection to the bracket to the bracket connection to the axil. This creates a triangle which is stronger then the stock configuration which is a straight line for the LCA. This will deflect under force and allow wheel-hop. Which robs you of speed.
