Very well said. In my case since I decided on a convertible I'd say I got 90% of the car for 60% of the price. Of course to me that last 10% of the GT350 adds 20% more wow factor and 20% more fun but I'm with you. I can drive the GT more often and not care so much - just enjoy it. The 350, not so much. I still would drive a 350 more than many but just by nature I'd limit it. I do that with the GT already. It is 24 degrees right now but sunny and the roads are dry. I drove it today. Wouldn't have driven the 350 on a day like today unless I had winter tires on it and would still me too worried about residual salt on the raods. I did not drive the GT a few days ago because the roads were wet and salty.i have 80% of the car for 60% of the price with the 5.0 and most days i'm happy with my decision.
i also drive my 5.0 everywhere, everyday, rain, snow or shine and with the 350 i felt like i couldn't enjoy it like i should because it was the nicest car i'd ever owned and i wanted to polish it after every drive.
i'd love to have both. the 3rd gen coyote with the 10 speed is a beast and surprisingly sounds almost voodoo like at times.
When you bring money into the equation, adding performance never makes sense. Meaning you don't get double the performance for double the money. The lightest, lowest power car possible is your best option if you are talking money and consumables on the road course (Miata).All those are valid points. My PP1 car has upgraded cooling system standard and all the other upgrades mentioned don't put me anywhere near GT350 price and way off GT500 price. I can vent the hood for free, change the front fascia for about $800 before paint match. Diff coolers are the same on both cars. The Tremec is worth about $2000 over the MT-82. Brakes are a wash with the performance pack, k brace, sway bar, suspension etc. Down force is better with the PP1 car than the GT. Tires are track ready. I run 5W50 per Whipple warranty. I bet my 5.0 uses less oil in a track session than the Voodoo. I like my value per dollar in the comparison.
No I am not but it causes idiot responses to like yours, why even say something like that man?
Perhaps I could have worded it differently but your response is exactly what I was referring to. There will always be 2 sides and asking who prefers one over the other most always has bickering and fighting over what is better. If you look back at other threads just like this one you will see what I mean. Pretty sure it was locked up for just that reason. Not sure why you decided to attack me because I asked a valid question. Its my opinion that these threads don't really contribute much, you disagree and that's fine.you've come into a DISCUSSION thread on a DISCUSSION forum only to bitch about people DISCUSSING a topic.
the same could be asked about you. why come in here just to bitch without contributing anything worthwhile of value?
so either contribute to the thread and the question at hand or find a different thread. it aint hard. right now your post contributed nothing of value.
