I've definitely had the same kind of experience.  A friend of mine in
the army had an 87 GT which would beat my stock 85 SVO pretty easily
in the quarter.  Whenever we'd go out and drive backroads fairly hard
he couldn't hang though.  I knew I wasn't that much faster on a
it turns out that it was bumps that were killing him.  The SVO soaks up
road imperfections and lets you concentrate on driving a nice line,
while the GT hops,skips, and jumps around until you're too scared to
push any harder.

South Dakota near Mount Rushmore.  It's like a go-kart track...
