  1. GT350R VS ZL1 1LE On Track

    I have no dog in this fight since I don't own either.. I'm a bit biased since I prefer Mustang over any Camaro but the ZL1-1LE is no joke on the twisties. That 7:16 at the ring, just 3 seconds slower than it's big brother Z06 is stupid impressive. Would I take a ZL1 1LE over a GT350? Hell no...

    I love and respect Z06.. I mean it put down 7:13 secs at the ring and an "Unofficial" time of 7:10 from GM. 1:25 secs at Big willow beating the Huracan, GTR Nismo and a bunch of cars.. But if you watch Randy P drive it vs the Viper ACR, that back end gets loose at the max limit. Too much power...
  3. 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang leaked specs: 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight

    True but the GT500 has a live axle and is heavier.. if the Z06 had the Z07 package then it's about 40 lbs lighter due to the light Carbon Ceramic rotors. 650 lb of torque on a rear wheel ~3400-3480 lb car (1/4 tank of gas) can get ugly. AWD will solve most of the issues dispersing the power so...
  4. 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang leaked specs: 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight

    The Z06 is a badass car no doubt but too much power to the wheels which creates a lot of oversteering that will require many corrections. I watched Randy P test a lot of cars and the Z06 is one where he said you can get sideways fast when pushing to the limit and not correcting. But when driven...
  5. 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang leaked specs: 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight

    At it's limits.. the power it makes will cause a lot of oversteer. Watch the videos from Randy.. he will say the car can get very loose and will require 100% attention.. In the hands of a pro driver, the Z06 is an awesome track car. Too much power at the wheels lol.. Badass car, I know if I can...
  6. 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang leaked specs: 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight

    Agreed. Look at GM's problematic 8 speed.. how many owners are having issues with the torque converter? I will say it'll take GM a good few years to nail down the DCT and get it to where it's reliable. 90% of the Vette owners don't track or drag race their cars so the DCT will def sell. Pretty...
  7. GT350 $110k

    They have 65 more HP.. how can it not feel much faster? They run the quarter in the low 12's, about .4-.5 tenths of a sec faster than the 18 5.0 M6 (that's a 3-5 car beatdown). They are faster, just that you will have to live in the upper rpm range to really feel it.
  8. GT350 $110k

    Any car can be fast and just no the 18 GT isn't faster than the GT350 if you're comparing apples to apples. A M6 GT is still slower than a M6 GT350. Most manual purists and those who def tracks there car on the road course will not consider the auto as an option. GT owners should give a bit...
  9. 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang leaked specs: 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight

    Well the Bentley is a 400k+ car right? You're going to compared that to a Ferrari? Car and Driver were comparing the Mustang to a Stingray, a GT350 to the GS. Who and why would anyone compare the 5.0, shelbys to a Z06 or ZR1? Maybe they might do a straight line comparison with the GT500 to a...
  10. 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang leaked specs: 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight

    Well if you had around 100k in "car credit" to purchase a car then you MIGHT take look at the GT500 if it fits the bill.. but more than likely you're gonna look at new Z06, slightly used ZR1, slightly used 2015+ GTR, slightly used Porsche 911, slightly used Viper, etc.. cars in the 100k+...
  11. 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang leaked specs: 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight

    Smoking that good stuff... differently class of cars. Mustang will ALWAYS compete with the Crapmaro.. period. Vette's competitor are the GTR, Porches and direct competitor is the Viper. How would you like to see someone comparing the Viper ACR to the ZL1? Most people who cross shop Vettes...
  12. 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang leaked specs: 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight

    This is crazy I love it! Haha I agree with Hack, the GT500 should be a balance of track and power.. Will it be faster than the Redeye at the drags? Prolly not but it will def handle better. Will it be faster than the ZL1 1LE at the road course? Prolly not but it will be quicker at the drags...
  13. need boost! Vette walking away from my 18

    The auto perhaps.. but the manual are still low 12 sec cars.. so it should be a good drivers race.. but equal driver the Stingray/GS should be about 1 to 1&1/2 car I guess. Regardless, doesn't take much to beat a stock Vette.. Tune, E85 will edge him out IMO
  14. need boost! Vette walking away from my 18

    LOL.. those hero runs are what that, a hero run. Looking at the publications, reviews in good DA the Stingray/GS is about 11-8/9 - 12.2 in the 1/4. Then again, Vettes are really drag cars especially the Grand Sport. a Z51 running 11.3 stock is like a Hellcat running 10.6 stock :/
  15. need boost! Vette walking away from my 18

    manual vs manual? well the Stingrays are about 1-2 cars ahead of the 6th Gen SS tranny per tranny. Since the 18 GT's is slightly quicker than the 6th Gen SS the Stringray should be half a car to a car ahead I would assume.. after 100, you'll lose since they have more aero.
  16. 2020 GT500 vs. Hellcat vs. ZL1

    good points and some of the older ones 09-2012 used can be found from 60k-80k.. And also i heard that if you use the launch control that comes with it you automatically void the warranty. Weird! I don't hate the car but if I was drag racing a lot, I would def consider that car. Stock low 11's...
  17. 2020 GT500 vs. Hellcat vs. ZL1

    Gotta love these threads! BlueBeast, would you even consider a GTR since you do a lot of drag racing? It's a great 1/4 car and handles well on the twisties.. Just looks dated, won't have the V8 rumble and all the import fan boys just love the damn thing.
  18. 2017 Z06 supercharged vs base 17 GT

    True true.. I know GM advertised 10.9 for the auto and 11.2 for the manual and I'm sure they tested it in good air and a prepped track.. if you combine the hero runs and non hero runs then those times can def. be done in good (not excellent) DA and with a good driver. Motortrend have got...
  19. 2017 Z06 supercharged vs base 17 GT

    Nope... C7 Z06's stock can run high 10's with the auto and almost 11 flat with the manual. Give the OP a beak! Thread is funny as chit!
