Neat to watch that video again.
I'd like a shootout between the following, all factory stock. It would be interesting to compare them in the 1/4 on the same day, same track.
2001 Cobra R
2003 Mach 1
2003 Mustang GT
2005-2010 Mustang GT
2011 Mustang GT
2012 Boss 302
2011 Mustang CobraJet

The 03 in the first video was not stock, it at least had exhaust....stock termis don't sound like that.

Odd that the Cobra would be declared the winner in that test because it was cheaper. So what if you can buy 2 used Terminators for the price of one new Shelby. Let's compare new versus new pricing, not new versus used.
IMO, the Shelby took the show, but not saying the Cobra isn't a nice car. They are beasts with big supercharger upgrades.

GT500 = Big bulky PIG, I would never own one personally

Both cars suck, the 2011+ Mustang GT is king.

Ford screwed up when they started making the gt500 so heavy. Think how fast that car would be 300lbs lighter!
Both are awesome cars but I'm not sure which one I'd rather have. I do know the first mods to the Gt if I got one would be massive weight reduction.2004 Hellion Cobra- Never ending money pit.
2013 Auto 5.0-Soon to be a never ending money pit.

It's kinda odd that the Shelby handled the road course better with a live axle versus the Termi's IRS. The driver said it's fun to drive, but the Shelby was more predictable.
Shouldn't that have been the other way around. I always though the IRS was superior in the handling department.
