The upgrades provided students with a safe and predictable environment in which to hone their skills, and they work just as well when Marty takes to the track at locales such as Willow Springs, Buttonwillow, and Fontana. Such duty is the sole role this car will play as long as he has anything to do with it. And while the old-dog GT consequently won't be learning any new tricks, it's particularly competent in its own backyard. Now isn't that what building a sole-purpose Mustang is all about?
