    The AWD M8 Competition is no joke, but once the GT500 gets its legs under it after the spinnin', the car is a beast on the top end!

    I found it quite interesting that both cars used the same lane for all 4 races.:)

    Certainly the launch of the M8 was very impressive with each race either won or lost at the starting line.

    Thanks for posting!!

    I find a set of drag radials off sets that AWD advantage nicely.:facepalm:

    AWD is a huge advantage on the street, honestly you don’t need it on a strip. A good tire and suspension set up will leave an AWD car with the same power.

    Win or lose, I'd take that Shelby any day of the week over the BMW. :)

    I've driven the BMW and it is an awesome car. Yes, about twice as expensive as the gt500, and it's more of a GT than the mustang, which is more of a race car. Not really fair to compare the two, as they are an apple and an orange.

    Both are stupid fast though! Holy smokes.
