Its a 2 way street here... a lof of brand loyal bros here could find a way to criticize the new FORD GT if it had a bowtie.

That's the nice part about those of us having no bias. We aren't limited to one manufacturer

The GT350 is that, on steroids.
Im not just talking about straight line. That cars in track performance . That cars on track performance is not anything to be overwhelmed about other than it can keep up with a z28.

It should be better than a 5gen 1le. But it don't seem like it handles better than a 6gen 1le.

Be nice to see a head to head of a gt350 vs 6gen SS 1LE. We already know the zl1 thrashes it. Zl1 1le will just thrash it worse.

As far as great performance cars on the market today it doesn't stand out performance wise.


Can't wait to see what a fgt does. Pretty crazy they've been released and no testing done yet. My guess is the zl 1le might give it a run for its $. But maybe furd will allow some testing on obscure tracks like they did the gt350's.

The ZL1/1LE/RS/1SS/2SS should do pretty good. Doesn't it have a glorious ricer wing on it to boot?

It is better than the 5g 1le, as it should be. And it is virtually the same as a 6g 1le. Which attests to how badass the 6g 1le is. That aside, the 350 is at the pinnacle of handling right now. Only cars that decisively beat it, should be doing so (c7 gs, c7z, zl1, zl1 1le, ACR).

The 350 is a great car BUT it is very unfortunate that the greedy dealers have taken the car out of the masses hands.

Im with you in regards fo the FGT.

Hey!! Ol buddy islander!

If the zl1 1le has a ricer wing, then the R got the rice and beans package!

Too bad I'm a shitty roll racer I could have beaten a stock gt350 with my stock 6g.

Those C7Z's are so slow in stock form for a half mile..
That 930rwhp mustang got gapped by an all motor vette though.

That car really makes 900+rwhp???

Sounds and looks great but if it's making that power I would think it would trap higher.

Agreed, that's why I don't put much stock in dyno numbers.

Same. Hence why I don't care much about dyno numbers.
