My daughter just spent a day at BIR with a friend who is getting his SCCA license. He drove both the short and long tracks. I owned a 1967 Z/28 in high school that raced in Trans Am series before I owned it. His new wide body Charger, although much more refined than my old car was, had a best lap about the same as the old Z. That car was fun - but crude. Manual transmission, manual steering ( was the special quick ratio, 2.9 turns lock to lock ), and springs with such a high rate it would skip hitting the expansion cracks when going around a clover leaf. Pushing it for 500 miles around that course would be punishing.
I like his car for the refinements and comfort, but just think of how much more fun it could be on a 1500 lb diet.
One of the things with the new Bronco is you can get a rock crawling gear. 1000 rpm, 1 mph. Interesting to see how many actually use this. Seeing the numerous mishaps rock crawling, and the results, would doubt I’d ever be brave enough to try it. Unless I won the lottery.
