    Against the 1le they should have wait for the PP2.

    They picked the GT350 over the ZL1 even though the ZL1 “won” all the performance tests...

    Yeah, I was gonna say... Motor Trend is probably one of the more Ford-friendly media outlets out there. Especially with the GT350/R coverage over the past couple years.

    Motor Trend On Demand? Well, what's that?

    I watch their Youtube channel, is there some other channel one must have to see this?

    FWIW, as much as Jason Cammisa was a bit annoying, I did like him better than the weirdo that replaced him, Jethro Bovingdon. Who is just too feminine for me.

    And that's saying something, since Cammisa (I think) is teh ghey.

    One of the motortrend guys already mentioned it, but at the time of testing the PP2 wasn't available but it sounds like they will retest when it comes out.

    It's their paid service so you can watch all their videos roughly 30 days (I believe) before they hit the YouTube channel.

    Well to be fair, the 1LE is the only performance level upgrade from the base V8 car that actually explicitly spells that out. The GT Performance Pack is single level up from the V8 base car. They kinda do meet right face to face.

    MSRC, MagneRide
    Brake upgrade, Brake upgrade
    Tire upgrade, Tire upgrade

    I still think the 1LE will have the edge though. The Alpha is just a better chassis...sorry.

    I think the Easter egg will be a test with the PP1 equipped with the PP2 tires :D

    I think the 1LE will have no problem at all beating the GT on the track.

    No doubt in my mind, especially if the 1LE wins.

    It will.

    It's much more aggressive than the PP1, hence the reason for the 2.

    At this stage of the game. I don’t really care anymore. Ford sends these cars to the magazines. So if their providing a grand tourer on all season tires. Against a track car. I’m betting the write up will go something like this. 1Le destroys the GT in almost every performance matrix. The GT will of course will be the more pleasing day to day car with better ride, visibility and trunk space.

    Yeah, the outcome of that video doesn't mean a damned thing to me. Really, who cares?

    I like Mustangs, if the Camaro wins the performance measures (and it will), it doesn't mean a thing. The Mustang is a different type of car.

    The pp2 was made to compete with the 1LE. Why not wait ??
    The 1LE have a tire advantage. It make a lot of the difference.

    It's a pp1 so at least it's on summer tire but they are small compare to the 1le tires. Compare it with a pp2 and if the 1le beat it, it will be fair and I Would be ok with the results!
