It is an upset if the Mustang is as fast as a GT3 RS. The GT3 RS is over $200k. The Shelby has 240 more hp, but the GT3 RS is also 800 lbs lighter. 800 lbs(!!), and can put the power down much (much) better. C&D tested the GT3 RS: 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. 1/4 mile in 11.0 @ 129 mph. Very freaking quick car in addition to amazing handling. The fact that the Shelby would have run a faster time than the GT3 RS if Randy hadn't lost it momentarily near the end of the lap is a major upset. Even with that screw up, he finished practically side by side with the GT3 RS. Watch the side by side video posted in the other thread - the GT500 was ahead nearly the entire lap. It's an amazing feat for a 4,050 lbs car to go toe to toe in every turn with the GT3 RS.I agree..
This is going to sound like a troll. But at 100k and with 260? More HP I dont see it as a upset if the gt500 is faster than a gt3rs. There is more to a track car than lap times. Maybe not to a drag car.
Im damn impressed the gt500 can hide its weight.
Im really stuck on the 100k with my dealer's horrible service..
