GT350 sounds amazing but is slow as **** for a 925 whp car. Should be closing in on 180 or better.

They are pretty unimpressive cars for the hype

That Cords Shelby has 920rwhp vs a stock auto z06 which probably has 550 to the wheels...

Unless you're just saying they are unimpressive in general. I guess the ZR1 set the bar pretty high.

C7Z did very well as expected.

GT350s are most definitely NOT unimpressive.

Great, great cars. Best car I have ever driven. 350 made my 1le camaro feel like a wagon and my shelby like a bean-bag.

Id be in a gt350 if it wasnt for dealer mark ups.

They are dead sexy. At first I wasnt a fan of the sound but it grew on le me and now I love the sound.

Dont understand how Ford got it so very right with the looks of that car and totally dropped the ball on the s550 gt's.

I will say that I have seen a few people (like 2 or 3) out of all the hundreds with gt's, make their car look good (with the right visual mods).

I like the 350 but for all the hype and mark up I am unimpressed just being honest. I did run one in my 6g when I was stalk and got dog walked really bad lol so I'm not saying they are slow or garbage but for the hype and price I think one can do better.

Performance on par with a 10yr old chassis and engine is not anything to be overwhelmed with.

If you had the driver mod like you think you wouldn't have got dog walked to bad. We've seen them in action on rolls/digs with wssick. Digs the gt350 got smashed and the rolls were pretty close with edge to gt350. Highly unimpressive for a car with 70 more hp than a 6gen.

Nah man.... its not about the straight inline with this car. Its the driving feel and handling. It is perfectly balanced.

You have driven Phil's 1LE, you know how good it drives. I know how good the 1LE drives.

The GT350 is that, on steroids.

I can say first hand that gt350 rides better than any 5G I've ever been in.

While this one was an underperformer and the shifting was meh, car still sounded amazing to me. At first I found the rasp of the gt350s obnoxious but now I enjoy it.

One could remove the bowtie from a C6Zr1 and replace it with a Ford emblem and Hio would find a reason to complain profusely about it.
