    Just wait. Venom kills everything.

    I will say the 0-60 sounds almost to good to be true. A stop light monster!

    Well, MotorTrend produced these figures. Not some GM hype bullshit. The 2.8 0-60 is better than GM said wasn't it? I thought GM said 2.9.

    I think Ford only said one stat that was not "estimated", and that was the 0-100-0.

    I think this thread belongs in the "Ford Mustang versus" board.

    Jim Owens stated it runs sub 11 seconds, and that it's NOT a 10.9.

    Since this is the GT500 area, maybe this can get moved to the 'vs' section, and/or simply merged with any of the dozens of existing C8 threads?


    ... or maybe just shot into space ... :crazy:

    No, there was already another C8 thread that had 300 pages, correct. I searched but could not find it.

    3 right up top, the 3rd one specifically GT500 related - the other filled with people who won't ever actually own a C8 :crackup:

    Yes GM said 2.9
    It must be making a little more power then they said and that DCT must be putting in the work!
