    As it currently stands now, the GT500's cooling system will be superior to the ZL1 1LE, I posted up an article up top somewhere about Ford and their statements regarding the focus of maintaining consistent hp levels in any type of racing. Within their own testing they focused on the ecu not pulling timing due to heat soak etc etc. Soon enough we will see if this added weight makes or breaks it in the performance against the competition.

    It’s got a lot going for it tech wise. Could really surprise us.

    I know many will not do this, but starting with a base gt500 and recaros @ $75K-$80K you're hovering around 4,180-4,200lbs. For $20k I think you could really get this car well under 4klbs, replica carbon wheels is a big 1 I will look to add if they are reasonable $$.

    That is great if the GT500 has a hella stout cooling system. No one wants a car that is only good for 3 hero laps. I was just correcting a previous post that said ZL1's had heat soak issues.

    you guys are hilarious.

    Want to know why i wont bet you guys? you keep changing the goal posts. i said the over/under. how close does it have to be?
    now you want to bet that it is taking all the records at all the tracks.

    your quoting things i never said, nor would. Yet time and time again, the math works out in my favor.

    and the weight removal? I can remove roughly 200lbs from that 4225 easily, without sacrificing any daily comforts, but you guys wont bet that either. id have to bet something like 650+ lbs or some stupid shit

    Cman wants to bet 2 random people on a random road with a random "test"

    tick tock. the POORS are going to be MAAAAAAAAD soon

    $12k for 60lbs in unsprung weight. You may as well just get the CFTP from the get go. If you can find one I guess..

    I did see a guy turn his gt350 into what is now essentially a road legal GT4 though.

    Well if you knew how to give a simple answer I wouldn't have to keep assuming. My question still stands but Im certainly not holding my breathe. I fully expect more beating around the bush with nonsensical Kyle style typing.

    How are you removing 200lbs from your car? And why would you? Thought the weight was fine?

    He's gone full angry, and for what, some critisism from people who dont even hate the car like he thinks. Should see his posts on 6G. "Im the last person you want to take a tone with here" lol... What a tool.

    That’s what I thought. I think it will be a huge victory for Ford if the 500 can keep pace or even out perform the c7z(prior to heat soak) on some of most tracks.

    I think the gt500 will be nipping at its heels. And yes.. that is damn impressive. I've always thought it'll average falling in line between the c7z and 1le but that's obviously going to vary a lot, not sure we'll see it head 2 head the c7z though.
    Z51 c8, 1le and 500 will all be a really fun episode with Randy.

    With rumors of the 500 4 seconds faster at big willow puts it .0x of the c7z time there with randy driving. This and the above time I believe the 500 will dismantle the 1le. As well it should as it’s a year newer.

    We'll see, the C7Z had a rough time setting laps. The 1Le is hilariously close to it. The CFTP will certainly beat the 1le probably everywhere but... It wont be a bloodbath. The real story will be when motortrend does their test as comparing lap times from years ago is only a general idea.
