The more power you have, the more the surface prep (and tires) matter since you become traction limited for a longer period.
It's like the old joke: How are a stock Honda Civic and an 800HP Supra the same?


... They're both 15 seconds cars.

when you struggle to get traction with 500HP in this car, wouldn't you think 250 more would be worse? Not enough weight on the drive wheels...hell car and driver would have been better off throwing 500 lbs in the trunk. The cyber truck pulling a bass boat will beat this to 60. Shit, good money making video if someone puts that up.
exvept the 500 isn’t a booster GT setup. It puts the power down.

If Car and Driver cared to, they’d have gotten 10 second numbers.

but they don’t so they didn’t. It’s as simple as that.

if the car was a manual, they’d be telling you they got 13 seconds.

Obviously some grand conspiracy against Mustangs. Has Alex Jones been consulted yet?

He's a major tool, for sure. The worst. I have zero respect for him, and think he is the biggest fool on the planet and he has the intelligence of a door knob.
And just a coupe of years ago, this is what he said about a Corvette:
blaqwhole said:
The Vettes are too small for me. While I was at the dealership I sat in a Z06 and I found it really uncomfortable. Plus those seats don't recline much. They aren't for me.
But now he's all about a Corvette. I still doubt he actually drives any of the cars he says he does. In all the years he's been on C6, he's only started 14 threads on the site, and the vast majority of his posts are in threads related to Ford products being discussed as competitors.

Its a shot a blaqwhole over on C6. Now cheer up little guy. It has nothing to do with you. Or anyone over here.
I realize who blaqwhole is now, he is all over CAMARO6 too. He is a little stubborn

I just went to the non-user friendly Camaro6 forum for the first time to check it out. That GT500 vs ZL1 vs C8 thread is epic. One of my favorite Blaqwhole gems so far:
“I could go and buy this car that all you Mustang guys are foaming at the mouth over and not one of you would be able to. LOL!!” Haha

Yes, Blaqwhole is comical. I just read his rantings.

He's already trying to justify why the C8 is slower. But the GT500 has more horsepower! But it's more expensive! But the C8 might be faster than the base GT500!

It's like looking at a train wreck...it's difficult to stop. :giggle:

I read his rants on C6 for a while but he made the ignore list pretty quickly. To be fair, there are people over there who want to have good discussions. I've seen quite a lot of praise for the GT500, as there should be.

I’m convinced he’s an 18 year old living in his parent’s basement that takes his Geo Storm convertible to a part time clerk job at 7/11.
