    The PP2 is a track pack?

    Ya,Cause the Mustang overheats in less than 2 laps without added coolers.

    I like these guys and it is a good video. They tell you basically what everyone already knows. 1LE is a track ready car and PP2 is not. 1LE is like driving in a coffin and the PP2 is great for a daily other than the SC2 tires.

    If they wanted to do a track ready comparison it really should have been a GT350.

    Personally I'd have preferred if they gave the car 4s's and used the CUP2 money to put towards including a rear diff cooler.

    Of all the colors to wrap your Camaro, you choose Baby Blue? Awwwww - he should hang a Unicorn from his mirror.

    Why would you personally prefer anything on a car you don't actually own...

    That's a pretty dumb question. Lots of people would prefer something be different on something they don't own. I'd prefer the Camaro have better visibility too, got a problem with that? Why does a person buy something? Because it meets enough of their preferences.

    Okay, that just makes your preference stupid. Gonna try to tell me that having a diff cooler instead of CUP2's wouldn't improve the trackability of the PP2 and its stance against the 1LE, its direct competition?

    Have you driven on a car with Cup 2's and 4s's?

    Anyone who gets a PP2 and wants a "real" track car should start with the full-tilt boogie differential cooler kit. I'd also add a transmission cooler if I were going to spend much track time. Mine is a PP1 with Mageride, but I will add the stiffer bars when I get around to it. It already has 285s all round and will not lose much to a 305 on track ... which is good since I didn't primarily buy it for a track car anyway.

    Who cares if you're hitting limp mode after just 2 laps?

    I agree it makes more sense to have 4S tires on the car rather than Cup 2s. But with the 4S it would have been slower. Someone prioritized the magazine numbers over actual functionality.

    Yeah Ford really missed the mark by a mile by not including the rear-diff cooler in the PP2. The clutch on the SS bites, very stiff and difficult to modulate since the engagement zone is very narrow. The trans on the SS is also very annoying as it tries to force you to 1-4 except in certain circumstances. Cup2 tires on a street car is just dumb and pure marketing nonsense. You can't get them up to proper temp on the street.

    The Mustang's Magneride is not nearly as well tuned as the SS. At a fraction of the cost of a Shelby the Camaro really is a good deal and easily up to track duty off the show room floor.
