    EagleF1, you need to shut the f*ck up and learn something.

    SS vs. Cobra: Motortrend says, 'The mustang is better at handling the speed'.

    Z28 vs. GT: Car and driver says, "The Mustang delivers a distinctly smoother ride on all surfaces. Second, and more surprising, the Mustang was very handy in our emergency-lane-change test, slashing through the cones almost 5 mph faster than the Camaro. Our test drivers' notebook remarked that the Z28's behavior was "floppy" and that there was "not much grip." Later, in a slightly shaky hand, the same author added, "Oversteers, too." In contrast, the Mustang's conduct through the cones was recorded as "very secure, no dramatics, balanced."

    The mustang has weight, slalom mph's, dimensions, suspension + IRS on its side.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->
    I'm talking about the SS, not the Z28. It pulls 0.91g's while the 03 svt cobra pulls 0.90. The Z28 is not a very good handler I'll agree but neither is the mustang GT. they pull 0.82 and 0.84g's respectively. I'm sorry, I should have made that clear. <!-- Signature -->
     
  4. Ford Mustang Mach 1 vs. Chevorlet Camaro 35th Special Edition

    Whith do you think would win. Style, Looks, Speed, power, overall preformance, (Street course)<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Mach 1. It has better looks and styling, better handling, only downfall, probably a bit slower. But overall the mach 1 is just a better car in my mind.
     
  6. Yeah I like the looks, as for handling I am not real sure but the Camaro will have it on performance, but who knows sometimes we get suprised. Anyway, we will just let the 03 Cobra do the dirty work.<!-- Signature -->

    The camaro will be slightly faster, true, but its still 25k mach 1 vs. 32k SS 35th
     
  8. since this subject asked for my opinion, style the mustang wins cause they have changed thiers, looks the camaro wins cause i luv the new 35th anaversary paint job, power the camaro wins hands down (300 mustang, 325 camaro), and handleing the camaro because of its proper weight distribution. All in all i would definently sport the chevy before i go with the ford. The only thing really different about the mustang is a hood scoop and a little more hp. Nice innovation though.<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. What I don't understand is why it's only rated at 300HP and 300 ft/lbs. It has a 4.6 DOHC engine just like the Cobra, which as 320HP and 317 ft/lbs. Not to mention the weak 4.6 SOHC Mustang GT has 302 ft/lbs of torque. The 300/300 numbers put out on this car (seem) to be estimates and I would think they would be more, especially with the addition of the functional hoodscoop.
    If anything it's yet another step in the right direction for Ford. I like the functional hood scoop (the fake scoops should die a slow death). They STILL need to do something about the 260 horsepower 281 engines on their Mustang GTs. In my opinion Ford has a proud history and should not allow ANY V8 Mustang to do any less than high 13s in the 1/4 mile.

    Ford,
    New Lightning: Great job
    New Cobras: Great job
    GT40: Great job
    Now do something about that damn 4.6 Mustangs GT!<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. True the Camaro has more BHP but that doesnt mean a thing.

    What about the weight of the two cars. That is a major factor. Plus the gear ratios.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Patience Seansvette, for the redesign in 2004, GTs will have the all-new 5.0 SOHC with 285HP. BTW, the new GTs get 13.9. I just thought I'd point that out.

    And whoever said the SS had a better weight distrubution. How'd you know that? Mustangs have handled better than camaros for as long as I can remember and the SS has the same wheelbase, but is 10 inches longer.
     
  12. some of you foolishly ask what difference does the 25hp make? enough, and in addition to that the higher torque, better transmission, and different gear ratio allow the camaro to be faster, trust me, try and race them, camaro will win hands down every time (and still keep running after the race, unlike the poor ford).

    Not really. Put the camaro ss up against the 2001 cobra, and it would just depend who the better driver was. Put the camaro ss up againt the 2003 cobra and the camaro won't even start because it will be to scared!
     
  14. I remeber long ago I was a BIG mustang fan till I got a GT myself and regretted it and got a Z28 within 6 months and love it. Well anywasy I would take the 35th but I love the mustangs styling though. The interior is much nicer than the camaro's but with power the SS has the lead. BTW Great Job Ford with the Cobra. THey finally have somethng to defend themsleves with! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

  16. but, whose opinon do you take, yours or others? i take my own, like the paint job on the 35th anniversary SS, it would beat the mustang, plus, the only way the '03 cobra beats the camaro is from a little help with a trusty supercharger<!-- Signature -->

    You can believe whoever you want and whatever you want I don't car. Just don't try to convince anyone that f-bodies handle better, becuase they just don't.

    P.S. I'm sick of you whining about the supercharger. Great is has a supercharger, great your car has more cubes, no one gives a f*ck.

    Yeah, why are all theis guys crying about the supercharger, its stock, so what. We don't complain about the extra liter of engine chevy went with for power, why complain about the sc that ford decided to use?
    As far as handling, the mustang wins. Its always been know to be a better handling car, period.

    But your wrong again. I think it was car and driver that said that the camaro is built for straight line speed while the cobra is built with a track in mind. The mustang is just a better handling car, please start to understand this.
     
  20. g's in the turn doesnt mean much x-cept for how much grip the car has and what most peeps overlook is the reliability and the useablility of a car. a mclaren or a hennesy viper is a waste of money unless u keep it in a garage for 100 years then sell it for a bazillion bucks. u cant drive cars like that on the street at top speed during the day at least. ive seen a crappy(under $15000 CDN)FF1600 beat a diablo on a track. so pretty much the only thing a car like a mclaren or a veyron is capable of doing effectivly is increase in value. theres my rant for today.

    (ps id take the stang cuz i think the camaro looks kinda goofy. dont hate!!!)
     
  21. You know, I am so freekin tired of hearing all about the Mustang and Camaro war that is going on. All you Ford guys always start talking about....."Well, who is better, the Boss, or the SS?" Then you start talking shit about the damn Cobra. To tell the truth, it's all they have. My brother has a V6 Stang, and I have a V6 Camaro. He always talks shit. I have NEVER lost to him. He says "Well, a Cobra could take you!" NO SHIT! I am not going to lie, My ass would get driven in the ground like a rail road spike, even though I have mods. I have never found one to race though, because people don't have that much money. My point is, the Camaro handles way better, disregarding how much Ford pays these magazines to say good shit about them. It is more powerful. It is more appealing to the eye because Mustangs are too dam popular. Check on the internet for the 2005 SS! Yeah, the car is back, better than ever! It is just going to come back, like in 1969, and all the years before to stomp the rustang in the ground......yet again.

  23. CamaroGod2k, Rustang...ha...Funny you never see a rusty camaro....every wonder why? That's because they have already dropped a valve or slung a rod, or just drove their owners crazy from all the rattling.
     
  24. i've driven both my z28 and a 2001 gt and i now for a fact my camaro went onto onramps of highways a lot faster than the stang. the mustang felt too high and loose in the rear end.
     
  25. Its probably looser to handle the turns at higher speeds. The looser the car, (until a certain point) the better it'll handle flat turns.
