Mustang is so superior, no matter the transmission

I feel like this is basically proof that while the 2022 has 10 less HP and torque, it doesn't actually matter in practice. If I had to guess, Ford made the torque tables and nanny intervention much more forgiving to try and hide the HP loss.

Literally everything in the video proved why I chose an S550. Affordable, (relative to the competition). The Sound, the design ( I think the mustang looks the best of the cars compared) and the manual transmission. Not only did it win the dig and roll race but you can also take the mustang to the track and perform well should you option the performance pack lv 1 or 2. The challenger is a slug and the 400z has been shown to be awful in it's current configuration. Maybe a Nismo well solve this issue but then we're looking at an even higher price for the Z.

For sure, given the pricing strategy around base and sport models, nismo would be knocking at Corvette c8 door. I don't know what kind of moron decided that selling slightly upgraded and redesigned version of 370z at almost double the price is a good idea.

I think when Ford stops making the Mach 1 they should bring back the GT's PP2 package that includes (TREMEC & BREMBO brakes in the rear as well)
All the PP2 needed was the Tremec.....and coolers (diff mostly)

Those drag races would have been much different if they would have used the Challenger 1320 package. That thing takes off like a rocket using launch control. It is very hard to get it to hook on the street, but on a prepped track its pretty quick for a big NA car.

These are all manual cars to have a fair comparison

if they can find enough Fools then it was worth it. Maybe 3000 units/yr is just fine.
