Ok guys, here's the deal, I joined Supercar's forum thing for THIS single post. I own a 2000 Z28, not an SS. I did not know much about the Ford and Chevy competition until I bought this car. In fact the ONLY reason I chose a Camaro over a Stang was simply because I think they look better. Honestly, I thought that the Z28 and the GT ran exactly the same in the 1/4 mile. Same with the SS and the Cobra. Boy was I wrong! It did not take me long to find out that the Mustang Cobra is a 4.6, and the SS is a 5.7(as with Z28 and GT). Then I just thought, well the Stang makes it up with its 320hp that is derived from the over head cam advantage(The Camaro looses some of its displacement hp with the push-rods). Well as soon as I buy this car BAM I'm in the local race scene. I cruise my car around and talk to a lot of Stang owners to try and stir up some Chevy vs. Ford competions. I have now owned this car for 7 months and have yet to find ONE 4.6L Mustang that will race me. THEY HAVE ALL BEEN HORRIBLY SLAUGHTERED BEFORE BY CAMAROS!!!!! I could not believe it!!! I thought the Stang and the Camaro were supposed to be rivals!!!! The only cars in my power class that will race me are Trans Ams and other Camaros. Then I took my car to the local dragstrip, and this is where I leared the truth. Stock stangs were running mid to high 14's while I was running consistant low 13's all night. I really cannot say anything about the the handling of a Stang because I have never driven one. But there is NO question that in the quarter mile, I'M talking fresh from the factory BONE STOCK guys, Camaro wins not only the 1/4 mile but also all the way up to top speed. And by the way this is to whatever ignorant 14 year old posted this, when you get your drivers permit and it comes time for you to buy a car, go on ahead and buy your 320hp Cobra, come race my 310hp Z28, and you can read my plate numbers to me over your cell phone as you watch the tail end of my car just keep on walking you. It will happen everytime. And also, as I was reading through the posts and I saw that someone tryed to compare the ZL1 Camaro to the Cobra R! OMG!!!!!! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that there is ZERO competition, the ZL1 is now running 9's with the fine tuning, and might I add, breaking into the 230mph range leaving behind your 12 second overpriced POS with NO AIR CONDITIONING!!! And to every other person who thinks that a stock Stang can take a stock Camaro...just remember that there is no replacement for displacement. 5.7 vs. 4.6? Come on! If you want to see some of the worlds fastest Camaro's go to Motorsporttech.com. These guys make Camaros run 9's and go well over 200mph. There is even a guy named John Campell that had his heads ported from them and ran 10's in a 5.7 350 LS1 powered 1998 Z28. When he got the car he did some weight reduction and put a higher torque converter in and pulled his front wheels off the ground, HE HAS FOOTAGE. His car is also the first internally stock LS1 to run 11's on exhaust manifolds and cats, JUST WEIGHT REDUCTION! Like to see a Stang do that, lol. I'm sure the Mustang is a fine car it's just slow, and that's why more men drive Camaros because they know that the Camaro is faster and women just want a cute sports car so they get a Mustang. Ford knows how to market sports cars better and that is why this is the last year for the f-body and the Mustang will live on. I guess that's all I have to say. If you want to e-mail and gripe me out about being a Ford hater or being sexist do it at [email protected] Drive safe guys, and remember...friends don't let friends buy Fords.
