    nice. a site that is totally bias against GM. Of course a site called "stangnet" will give it higher ratings. Show me popular mechanics, car and driver, or any other neutral respected publishing. The Mach 1 is heavier with less hp than the SS, so by deductive reasoning I can logically throw an acumen protruding my worries of your "stangnet" website.

    Yes it can. It ran a 12.9, that should make it just as fast as the camaro ss, and for less money. Camaro ss, $32,000. Mach 1, $25,000.

    CAMARO SS IS 28,000 dollars. for a scant 600$ more you can get the quad exaust option, which takes the 0-60 time to low 12's, from what I hear.<!-- Signature -->

    Hey 8694GT. I noticed you asked about a link asking what kinda times an LS1 could go. It's called ls1.com here's the direct link. Browse through the site too it's pretty interesting, you can learn more about your enemy's cars! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

  7. haterustangs, how come every god damned board I see you in you post something about how much that car sucks and how much slower it is than your car? Dude, who gives a flying fu** about your car. Great it's fast, who cares? There are alot of people with cool cars out there buddy. I understand your excitment with a new purchase of an SS, hell I would be too, but really WHO CARES??? And your super dooper amazing IROC with the original tranny?? Who cares, you and ssfearss go into every mustang board and rave about 1/4 times and what not. Dude, Ford looks at sales. Mustangs have been outselling camaros for years. Ford did not go, hmm lets make a mach 1 to compete with the Camaro. They don't CARE!!! They made the Mach 1 so their consumers would have more options between the 260hp GT, and the now almost 400hp SVT Cobra. 300hp fits right in between. More options, more sales, more $$. They didnt make it to be faster than an SS, if it is it is, if it ain't, it ain't. Its still a fast car, and will just assist mustang in outselling camaro/birds even more. They are just going back to the good ol' days of BOSS 302s, Mach 1, GTs, Cobra, etc. Multiple options for one car make the consumer happy, and more likely to purchase the vehical. They could care less about some dork with an SS on the internet critisizing it for being a couple 10ths slower in the 1/4 mile than a car that sells a fraction of their amount. Blow me.

    Hey Buddy! I think you have me wrong here! I've haven't said anything bad about this car or the 03 Cobra in a very long time! Yeah I talk about my cars a lot in the 03 Cobra Forum, but believe it or not, I have some friends out there, and they respond quickly to me. Your the only one who has the problem right now. I've never said this car sucks and my car could beat it, NEVER! Never had never will! I don't compare my cars to anyone or anything else! I put out my opinions with facts to back it up! If you have a problem with me tough shit! Get over it! Look at all my latest posts, never said a damn word about my car beating these two! Just becuase I hate Mustangs doesn't mean I don't respect them for what they are capable of doing, and a lot of people besides you seem to understand it! So swallow your pride man, and get over it! And don't miss-interpret what I say!<!-- Signature -->

    12.9's at 104? Yeah the times are nice, but the speed blows! I've got my car to run a 13.1 at 107! And I raced it twice, cuz I have the original Tranny in my 89 IROC! I'm 100% sure my car could beat 12.9's but I don't want to risk it right now, I'm gonna rebuild the tranny, But it really went 12.9's on slicks huh? The MPH could be higher though! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"></b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    Funny sounds like you said the speed blows and how you got your amazing 80s IROC to run 13.1 with the original tranny and how your 100% sure its faster than this Cobra but convinently enough think its far too risky a task.
     
  13. So what the speed does blow! It should be faster! You can't prove me wrong buddy! And what the hell do you have against my Iroc? Are you jealous? If not then shut up, because you bring it up more than I do! Like I said swallow your pride and get overyourself!<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. And by the way, I said against this car not the cobra. You do know they aren't the same right?<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. I'm just noting that if you scroll up, you'll notice that you said >> I've never said this car sucks and my car could beat it, NEVER! Never had never will! I don't compare my cars to anyone or anything else!
    However, earlier in the thread you said the speed blows, and that you are 100% positive you could get your car to surpass it's 1/4 mile time but didn't want to risk it because you need to rebuild the tranny.
     
  16. The speed does blow though. At what, 107 mph at 12.9, basically shows me it got there with an add-on like slicks, and basically is it's limit! It probably couldn't go any faster even with a great driver. Look at it this way, you know how magazines test the new SLP Twins to run around 13.3's? I've seen them reach 12.7's with a good driver, bone stock! All I'm doing is saying yeah the time is impressive, but for what the speed of the car is, 12.9's is basically all this car can go stock. I just don't think the speed is impressive. The 03' Cobra's speed is though, people were saying it'll go 12.9's when in fact the coupe ran 12.6's! If a good driver got behind the wheel I wouldn't be suprised if we hear people saying, "I've seen this car run 12.3' highs"!<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Wow those are some accusations there! The tested cars have drags eh?So if one mag. got them to run 12.9...but only show pictures of it running with street tires, and never announce it had on drags...they are basically lying. And for no reason...they arn't selling cars. Plus thats means all the other magazines out there are lying too...its also been rated to run 12.6 and never mentioned anything about drags. Both magazines in fact mentioned how much quicker it would run WITH drags installed. And this running out of steam theory for them having only what...107mph at there 1.4 mile??? This car has no intention of running out a steam with a 6speed at a mere 107mph, it hauls quickly to its 155mph governer....and still has rpm left in her. Not to mention the fact that the SS runs it in 13.5 at only 106mph. Big deal...the Cobra gets across the line first.

    Since the 2003 Cobra has come out, chevy guys have been 'quoting' if you call it that, some pretty 'incredible' times for SS's and TA's. It's interesting since I didn't know the new ones have taken off that much seeing as they haven't gained any power or anything to make if faster for a couple years. F-bodys getting 12s 'stock', I don't know...

  20. Doesn't it piss you off when people talk trash about cars. What i mean is the squable between what is better american,japenese or European cars and i'm goin to settle it once and foreall.
    I'll start with American cars now they are USUALLY a cheap price and get you were you were you want to go. Now it is also a well known fact that American cars break down easy.
    Next i'll move on to the pros and cons of japenese. Now these cars can be cheap but for the most part are in between $25,000 and $40,000. They dont break down near as much as American cars but have crappy performance due to the lack of engine size and number of cylinders and we all know theres no replacement for dicplacment.
    Finally I will talk about European cars. The thing about European cars is that they are very expensive but when it comes to performance they kill the opposition. Remember this; with performance comes price.
    Now of course with every rule there is an exception. I am going to now talk about the greatest car ever made and why its the greatest car made.
    This king car i talk about is none other then the 2002 corvette zo6. Now dont get all mad and say i dont know what i'm talking about until you've read the rest. The 2002 corvette zo6 will almost never break down this is a fact my friend has owned one since the second day they came out.(if you really want to no he won it in a contest) Also these cars have European performance, 173mph a very quick quarter mile and excelent exeleration. The finall point about them is the only cost about $50,000usd which may seem like alot but when you consider the qualitie and the performance its not.
    My final statement is dont tell me i dont know what i'm talking about because i do and plus i have very relable magizines sitting right infront of me. ie super street,car and driver,street and strip etc.

    They're not accusations. I think you're getting my post mixed up. I went from talking about the Mach1 to the 03 Cobra. I never said they were lying, and the fact that slicks would be on it, means nothing to me anyway.
    Hoseman, I have seen an 01SS run in the 12's. You and I both know that a driver can make all the difference. Now I'm not trying to be one of those Chevy guys that's in denial, becuase I know the 03 Cobra is faster so I'm not denyying that. I'm only saying this, seeing from my own experience with cars and racing them, 12.9 at what 107, shows that this car is at it's limit in the 1/4 mile. If it were speeds like 110 at 12.9, that could mean that this car was capable of running better times. Believe me, I've seen and raced a lot of cars, I was just trying to give my opinion on what I think about the mph. And after what I've seen, the mph sucks. Granted 12.9 is fast, not many cars out there that can run that kind of time, but like I always say, we'll have to see it on the tracks to believe it! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    You and I both know that the SS and TA are not 12 second cars. With an incredible driver and conditions you might see a 12.99 but it is NOT the norm.

    Just another things, I don't know who mixed this up, but the mach1 ran on drag radials to get 12.9, not slicks. I wouldn't be surprised if when they come out, you see people break into the 12s stock, again it is not a 12 second car, but it probably could be done.
     
  23. Motor Trend said it did it in 13.8
     
  24. Motor Trend has some bad drivers then because I have seen many times the quarter mile run for this car around 13.4.
     
  25. Actually it's not always the drivers. Wind, ground moisture, humidity, altitude, smoothness of the track, the amount of gas in the tank, how much the driver weighs, etc., etc.
