I do like the proliferation of cameras.

One question though. Why does the Ford GT fart so much and so loudly? Great looking car and I love their success and the sound of the engine accelerating but then there's that other sound. In a sport where sounds are greatly appreciated, I think this is a bit unusual?
I presume it's some form of anti-lag?

It sounded awful in the DP, and awful still in the GT. It really only happens under partial throttle, so I'm actually not entirely sure.

I thought it was TC. V6s typically sound like hot garbage to me anyway.

Especially on a late model Camaro or Mustang. What's the point?

I just had an idea. My old man worked in the Ford plants in the early days and even saw 'Old Man Henry' on occasions. My father wasn't an engineer but, in his later years, he had an idea about an air-driven car.

When putting this memory together with the 'puttttttttttt' that the EcoBoost does on deceleration today, can it be that like a big tractor-trailer diesel that uses their engine-bladder-braking system, Ford is using turbo back pressure to slow down without using their brakes? Use turbo back pressure for air-driven braking?

I don't know if this is what is happening or not but, I am going to use this explanation when I make the same noises!

Big props to IMSA for posting the radio feed on the youtube race replay. Its not just the commentary but you get the race free of commercial breaks so you dont lose 5 minutes of race time. Also no more stupid "tech tire tips" segments.

Delayed gratification? Just kidding as this is great for the gear heads and tech heads.

Posting the commentary with the great visuals is the way that you grow an audience.

Agreed. The Ford GT sounds like
