  1. It's not pathetic, merely not impressive anymore. Objectively 315HP is a damn good amount... But when the V6 Camaro is gonna be packing 300HP... Well it just doesn't seem that badass anymore.
     
  2. Yeah, for the 2011 MY.
     
  3. Either way, I still wish they'd sell the damn Mustang in Australia ... at a price its worth.
     
  4. yea, half a decade ago, and they still had more HP/L with a "less sophisticated" engine [OHC vs DOHC]
     
  5. 400lbs shouldnt make that much of a difference? Have you ever driven with 3 friends in your car? well no because you would need 3 friends first, but trust me, the car is much slower with an extra 400 lbs.
     
  6. You mean OHC vs SOHC.
     
  7. meh, I pretty much dont notice a huge of an acceleration difference when I stack my ute ... which would often be around 400lbs.

    On the other hand, I do notice it in the VL .... but thats because RB25s have pretty shitty torque.

    When you're talking 300 .... 400 lb/ft, 400lbs shouldnt make THAT much of a difference.
    Well, i wouldnt think so .... I can only determine from what I know. Perhaps I'm talking from my arse.

    But whatevs, probably all in the gearing, and suspension, etc etc..

     
  8. You mean OHV vs OHC
     
  9. Along with the other 100 variables that can effect a few tenths of a second.
     
  10. 350Z has how much? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  11. What did they ever do with the DOHC 32V design in the Mach 1 and Marauder. Passed on to the Shelby GT500 only with a SC added? Even though in the Mach 1 at the time it had less than 315 horsepower.
     
  12. Isnt there a supercharger option from the factory this year?
     
  13. I mean with things like ... I'm pretty sure Aussies test with a full tank and one passenger (?). Americans test with half a tank and no passenger?
     
  14. If it doesn't have 500+ HP it's GIRLY.
     
  15. Love it.

    I take it over the Challenger now.
     
  16. ha ha u got jokes
     
  17. you guys also record 0-62mph lol
     
  18. GT500.....for like a couple years now
     
  19. theres a warrantied supercharger that cranks the power to over 400 from ford racing.1
     
  20. You don't get it, do you?
     
  21. The world refers to it as 0-100km/h
     
  22. for the gt i mean.
     
  23. guess not
     
  24. just cause it doesnt have 500+HP doesnt make it girly
     
  25. hahaaaa ,
