    Lol at gt350r getting wrecked on the street... It traps 122 so I call bullshit. Unless you race auto hellcats and zl1's, it's a total driver race to at least 100.

    Cold tires on the street, give me a gt350r any day vs a zl1. You'd be lucky to pull a 3.0 60ft with cold tires on a zl1 from a traffic light.

    Gt350r is low on torque, let it slip the cold tires to 30, then hammer it. 2 wot shifts and your doing 125.

    Lmaoooooooo at the denial on this guy...

    Show me a 122 traping 350... dont worry, Ill wait!

    Meanwhile back on Earth, Hellcat, ZL1 and Trinity Shelby will continue to shit all over the 350 on the 1/4, street and highway, where most of the action happens.

    I'm honestly waiting for ford to make a dohc 427. Not sure if they will or not so I'm not too impatient to see one but would be nice if the little rumors of the next gt500 having one were true. Anyhow, someone mentioned that they're waiting for ford to make a car that can destroy demons and perform like a gt350r on the track. They just can't do that. Chevy said nobody could beat their zl1 around the track so ford built a car that could. That's what the gt350 is for. Handling. You don't need more than 600hp on a road track and that's even pushing it on a street car that performs on the track. The gt350 can get LOOSE on track and pulls like an animal up top and sounds great. The gt500 is built to be a fast street car in a straight line. To get gt500 power you need power adders or big ci engines. Superchargers get heat soak on track and turbos have lag. Turbo on a gt350 would be great but to get the big numbers with no lag you need the high compression which is no good for pump gas and if you drop compression you get the lag. So as you see it's not as easy as it sounds in your head. You can have a great all around car but it's not gonna be as good as a gt350 AND a gt500 at the same time. Like people say. If you want something specific then build it. Take your s550 and put an fr9 in it and build it to do what you want. If somebody can build a car that would beat a demon in a line, a gt350 in the curves, and still sell enough to profit then start a company

    Lmao.

    You do realize that the new ZL1 did just that. 350 AND 500 hybrid. Animal on the track AND street.

    The GT500 can dance just fine. It isn't its strongest trait, but she won't shy away from a challenging track.

    You talk about the extra horsepower like its a bad thing. Lmao.

    You also forgot to mention that it is the one with the much less aggressive wheel/tire/aero combo while carrying quite a bit more extra weight.

    ZL1 won. Hahahahahaha.

    You say added weight like it's a good thing?

    Weight and blower suck for road course handling. And it shows in the results.

    Again it has that mark up because of how it drives on track. Very much like a gt3 or Ferrari cars that cost 3 times as much.
    The zl1 has soft brakes included in its sagging demand. Hence the low pricing.

    Why are you even here zyborg? You're not smart enough to figure out the grand sport c7 is a better track car than the zl1, yet you continue to babble about meaningless data. Who cares about 130mph at the 1320 on a track car....

    Yes the zl1 is a powerful and fun car. Welcome to 2012! And yes I'll say the same thing about the 19 gt500 if it's blown. It's a fun car but the track car is the 350.

    You appear desperate and stressed out meng. Take a drink and/or get laid. It will be ok.

    Not at all. A track car the zl1 is not. However I'm sure it's fun to drive as is the gt500 from 5 years ago...
