We knew the Ford GT was all about compensation to the max — we mean, come on, Jeremy Clarkson bought one (and then returned it). But apparently the owners of the super-car aren't the only ones with some serious issues concerning their "shaft." Apparently the Feds are now investigating complaints about half-shafts coming loose in Ford GT's. If the half-shaft comes loose from the transaxle, you're going to quickly find out what it's like to be driving a front-drive vehicle as the rear wheels will go from hero to zero real quick. Maybe if those shafts are so loose and flaccid, maybe they should try something to increase the performance — like Viagra, perhaps?
