  1. Re: Camaro vs. Mustang

    While mile races might be common in.....nowhere, here in CA we race 1/4 miles. I agree with you about the slalom without even looking up specs because having ridden several time in one(the basterd has yet to let me drive it) there is a lack of juice out of corners. While 4.5 may only be accomplished with perfect shift points, my bro has been measured at 4.7 on two consecutive runs which still bombs on the SS. As for the arguement of this forum, (though i am not at all a fan of either in case you haven't guessed) from the races ive seen, Camaro's have stomp Mustangs pretty consistantly.

    To the bloke whos borther has the audi. Mate, a Z06 Vette or Viper ACR would maul the rs4 in everything except maybe brakes (viper only) fuel consumption, comfort (who gives a #$%# about that)and refinement.
     
  3. Re: Camaro vs. Mustang

    Camaro vs. Mustang? While I think the answer to this question is obvious, let me just put a little fact out there for consideration. My friend had a bone-stock '97 Pontiac Grand Prix 4-door FAMILY SEDAN, and he lost count of all the mustang GT's he's beaten in it. I've been in the car when it happens. Automatic or manual, it makes no difference, they just can't compete with a 3.1 (yes, you read that right) liter N/A stock V-6 Pontiac (ok, GM/Chevy) engine in a 4-door sedan. Oh, and for comparison sake, his car lost to every V-6, yes, V-6 Camaro that he raced. So let's see, that would make a Camaro V-6 faster than a Mustang GT right? I'd say so. Oh, and every article that I've read (admittedly probably too many), has had the Camaro come out on top, and the magazine can not understand why in the world people buy Mustangs. It was Car and Driver, and I dont' feel like looking it up, but the exact words were something like "it is beyond me why the Mustang sells so much more than the Camaro when the Camaro is so superior in nearly every aspect". Something like that. Anwyay, anyone who thinks a Mustang can beat a Camaro must have a lot more money than that Camaro owner, cuz he must have done some mean tricks to his car.<!-- Signature -->

    Mr. 996t- in your first post in this particular "Mustang vs. Camaro" forum, you stated that you might as well call this "gay vs. gayer." i also noticed that you critisized "mustangs are gay" for using the same word in a post on the "what a piece of crap" forum. and from what i've read you're something like 45 years old correct? why in the hell are you saying the word "gay" in this sense anyway if you're nearly half a century old? stop being gay you hypocritical jackass.

    f150- if you're only 14, whay the hell are you even commenting about cars. you can't even drive anything but a go-cart.

    and as for the mustang vs. camaro issue: i know a guy that has a '99 z71 tahoe with a six inch suspension lift, three inch body lift, and 36 inch super swampers (he also has a few mods to boost hp and speed). he has completely trashed a many mustangs including a gt that was truly drag racing him. the only good thing about a mustang is, well i can't think of anything that's good about them. mustangs are terrible, camaros incredible. there's no denying this because it's fact.

    well iv got a something for you to think about! If mustangs are so great, why is it that at every single drag strip that iv been to the mustang ends up sucking the camaro's D--K. Fords shitty little 4.6 cant hang with chevrolets 5.7. Mustangs are basically marketed towards teenaged girls who have rich daddies!!! for some reason there is no market for 5.7 liter beasts. thats why they are being discontenued. i herd a rumor that they will be back in 2003 but with different retro syled bodies. enjoy your time on top ford cause chevy will be back with a vengence. on the other hand we chevy,ford, and dodge enthusists need to concentrate on our common enemy. the rice burners. ill give for this.....i will gladly take a sissy mustang over a weak a-- civic. domestics 4 eva<!-- Signature -->

    I own a 1991 325i BMW A4 and a 2000 Z28 M6, and I have to say that I love my american muscle for the 1/4 mile, but my beemer can take corners like no other, mainly because its got bad ass suspension and because it's a convertable and it has a much lower center of gravity. But your right about the price thing, and that's why I bought my Camaro to make it faster in the 1/4 mile. But when I wanna go have fun on a winding road my BMW is the ONLY way to go. ALL cars have their ups and downs.

  11. Re: Camaro vs. Mustang

    Well, I think it's obvious that F-Body cars are faster than Mustangs. But I think its also obvious that there are many more Ford Mustang owners out there with respect for their cars for what they are. Think about it...Firebirds and Camaros both come with V-6 options like the Mustang. And are faster also. Yet still...the Mustang outsells the F-Bodied twins combined, yes combined...and then some. This is why they are closing their plant, whether it be to relocate or whatever. Mustangs have a much more loyal following. Most of the comparisons in magazines I've read with Mustangs and Camaros, the editor even admits the Mustang is slower, but says the looks, durability, handling, and history simply make it a better car they would rather have. Look at it...Mustang GTs had almost a 100hp deficit to the Z28s from 93-98 and thats when Ford out sold them the most. It's almost sad for Chevy that people would much rather spend extra money giving their mustangs the power that Ford didn't, instead of getting a Camaro or Firebird. The Mustang started alone, and now the Mustang will be alone again. And if this wild rumor of the F-cars returning is true, which is beleiveable...it wont matter. The Mustang it its present form will be nothing like the completly re-designed from the ground up '04 model. Mustang's and Camaro's are equally respectable cars, but Mustangs are the better of the two.

  23. Re: Camaro vs. Mustang

    Alright, so now that all the chevy fans are done with their circle jerk and boosting eachother's egos, lets take this into consideration: Businesses want to make money. Now, stay with me, this might be difficult for you, but lets consider: are more people going to buy A)Camaro - A more expensive car which is really fast (which by the way the average consumer doesnt care about, speed that is) or B) Mustang - A less expensive car but still sporty and comfortable. hmmm, doesnt seem like much of a choice to me. And let me think... if ford really wanted to make stock mustangs that could smoke stock camaros they could, ever hear of Saleen SR or Saleen 281? they both kill camaros. Now dont come back at me with this shit about "Saleen isnt ford" cause Ford could do the same things from the factory that saleen does in the after market, but since ford knows there are people as thick as some i've seen in this forum, they know that if they market it under saleens name instead of ford they can do.... what??? make more money.... see how that ties in with the previous statement? Any questions children?

    Mustang Cobra, 390hp,weight: 3780 lbs.

    Smoke what?
    (Boy, you been smokin' the rock).

    None of it has anything to do with Camaro's, so lets quit talking about station wagons before people start to gag.

  25. Re: Camaro vs. Mustang

    if ur talking about a stock mustang vs. stock camaro.. camaro definitly..the mustangs top speed is like 120 and the camaro just outruns it..but the cobra vs. z28..thats alot closer..probably a tie but i think the camaro would win around a track cause the cobra doesnt have to good of handling
