    A Tesla does great on a drag strip not really a drag car embarrasses muscle cars! And I would never buy one. I really could care less what it does on a drag strip! Just me.

    I hope it’s a well engineered drag strip mode. Corvette/camaro have LC in track mode and they are good for consistency but rather easy to beat. They don’t have very good weight transfer in their mode nor do they manage power great. They either cut way too much power or not enough. I think it’s one of those things where if they spend the time to engineer it properly it works great but often they don’t put the time and resources into it. Do you think they’ll consider using a stick year tire then that SC2? Like trofeos or the new Goodyear tires?

    I'm wondering how hard the thing will launch with a DCT and around about 4,000 lbs.
    Im sure that 750+HP will feel wonderful, as it plows thru the gears without hesitation.
    It will feel like and endless surge of power. I'm not sure the 60' time will be that great, but after that it should be a rocket ship IMO

    It almost feels like Ford is in a no win situation with the GT500. If it's not faster on the strip than car "A" it is a failure. If it can't beat car "B" around the track Ford screwed up. Some of us ask for an all around great car but an all around great car is going to lose to another car on either track (drag or strip).

    I don't think they are to concerned about drag strip times. They have been seen benchmarking the ZL1 n GT3 neither car is like say the Demon! I don't expect it to be Demon competition and that's fine. If it hangs with a GT3 on the street or track that's a win in my book!!!!

    I feel that will likely be the case however I don’t see it as a failure at all. If it is mid 10 sec car then what only the demon is faster, if only the 1LE is faster it is going to be the best OVERALL car. My biggest concern is this car being able to put power down under 40 mph. This is the reason I bought a Z06, it’s a fantastic car overall. I want a car that can do 2-4 track and drag strip days a year. I hope it lives up to the hype.

    It's always going to lose to another car...like Ford's own GT. With that said there are certain cars it should beat. I certainly believe it's possible for the GT500 to be faster than a ZL1/1LE on track and Hellcat Challenger at the drag strip. Some people might want it to be faster than a Demon and maybe it could if Ford offered a drag pack option with slicks and a race gas tune! :)
