  1. has amazing performance, but i've got an objection about the looks
    i would never like something that looks like this,
    except the skyline<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. saleen sucks ass
     
  3. (i hate caps)

    ITS NOT MENT TO COMPETE WITH THE VETTE, GOD DAMN GET THAT THROUGH UR THICK FCKING SKULL U DAMN CHEVY PERSON. COMPARE IT TO THE CAMARO, ITS MUSTANG VS. CAMARO, AND ITS NEVER BEEN MUSTANG VS. VETTE, THE MUSTANG WAS NEVER DESIGNED FOR THE PURPOSE THE VETTE WAS, OF COURSE THE VETTE WOULD WIN, BUT THEN AGAIN SUPERCHARGE A VIPER AND THE VIPER WOULD RULE ALL LIKE IT ALREADY DOES.

    UR JUST MAD CAMARO CANT COMPETE, BOW DOWN TO ITS POWER CHEVY BOY.

  6. this car sucks also all the cars saleen creates sucks, this is a real car....
     
  7. SALEEN KICKS ASS

    a saleen could #$%#ing whoop up on any car it raced post somthing if you think otherwise. (except for mclaren f1-1 million bucks or any other car over 60 k)
     
  8. The SHM Cobra S4-5 would beat it and it cost just under 60K<IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    BTW, you posted a picture of the Bullitt Mustang, not a Saleen, just in case you didn't know.<IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  9. I agree with you completely!!! Nothing under $100K could come close to touching this beast!!! Ferraris cost twice what this does and most still don't have 495 horses. I just think that it is a shame Ford stopped making the 351 Windsor, one of the best engines ever.
     
  10. Re: SALEEN KICKS ASS....NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The 2000 DOdge viper GTS does 0-0 in 4.3 top speed of 185. How's that for better?? Not to mention it even looks far better. It doesn't look like it's onlt meant to be driven by pompous high school grads whose parents have just a bit too much money. Sorry to burst your bubble.... :)

  11. As an owner of a 97 cobra and fan of all mustangs (saleens included) it hurts me deeply to admit that both GM and Mopar make better, faster cars. The 2002 corvette zo6 will put a mollywhoppin on any mustang (s-351 included) unfortunately, and a viper would also slam any mustang it went up against. What can we say? I guess pushrod V-8's and v-10's are still better than OHC
     
  12. I don't think pushrods are better than the SOHC and DOHC that the Mustangs use, its just that Ford chooses to make them so damn small, 281 cubes is only going to make so much power stock, just think if Ford built a 5.7L DOHC egnine for the Cobra, using the same style induction, exhuast, and so on, do you think the vette would still beat it? considering it makes 305 HP stock, adding over a liter of displacement would definatly give it some power. Or what if they had a DOHC 8.0L V10? I think the Viper would be toast.

    Sorry to Burst your GM and Mopar Bubbles and yet I own a '00 S281SC, my fathers car would gladly do in your vettes and Vipers. See there is a snake that has more bite than the viper. I know I helped him build it. The Factory Five Racing Shelby Cobra 427 roadster equiped with the 5.0 HO engine makes vipers and Vettes look like toys. Just check it out www.factoryfive.com Peace
     
  18. yeah i wanted a factory five kit but ive got no time.


    about the saleen though they did it perfect. great performance and damn good looks.


    thumbs up from the mopars!

    what are you talkin about a z06 could beat this. zo6 doesn't stand a chance against this s-351. s-351 is the best factory car presently built by ford has to offer and notin compares in numbers beside the new viper in 2003 that has 500hp/500trq. z-06 i laugh. viper might have a chance and don't even line up a foreign car.
     
  20. specs for u idiots out there,

    CAR AND DRIVER, AUGUST 1998, 0-150-0 ultimate speed test shoot out

    many cars tested but since u guys talk about the mus/vip/vett

    Saleen s351
    0-60 4.4secs
    0-100 9.5secs
    1/4mile 12.9secs
    0-150 23.0secs
    150-0 8.1secs/781ft.
    0-150-0 time 31.1secs

    Viper GTS
    0-60 3.9secs
    0-100 8.9secs
    1/4mile 12.2secs
    0-150 22.5secs
    150-0 9.1secs/907ft.
    0-150-0 time 31.6secs

    Vette
    0-60 4.7secs
    0-100 11.0secs
    1/4mile 13.1secs
    0-150 30.2secs
    150-0 7.6secs/720ft.
    0-150-0 time 37.8secs

    as u can see the saleen did better in every things except against the viper in acceleration, but made up for it in braking, which a supercar must be able to do well or else its not a supercar

    supercar-a car that is well balanced in every aspect giving it total supermecy for its class

    and well sorry boys and girls ford won once again, but then again u guys should be used to loosing by now, heck its routine for u guys (dont take it to seriously, unless u cant take a joke then bring it on)

    Ford wins again? You just compared a stock Chevy, and a stock Dodge to a heavily modified Ford.
    Damn, all those smart comments and sarcasm.... only to get slapped down. <!-- Signature -->
     
  22. I LOVE THIS SALEEN IT LOOKS WICKED !! BUT YOU SAY NOTHING IS FASTER FOR THE MONEY ?!! YOU NEED TO HAVE A LOOK AT THE TVRS ON THIS SITE.
    CERBERA IS ABOUT 60K AND IS AS QUICK AS A DIABLO.....<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. of those 6 figures, 2 are taken by Ford, 4 by the Viper. How can you say that the ford wins? Unless you think breaking is more important than acceleration? I personally don't, because I avoid situations where I need to brake as fast possible. Accelerating as fast as possible? that's something I can do every time I drive. <!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Sorry to all u stang loves vettes and vipers kill this thing. Lets compare, This thing isn't stock and so we can compare it to the c5 r vette((road verision)) and the viper gts R. The vette 0-60 in 3.5 and a top speed of 217, The viper 0-60 in 4.2 and a top speed of 190. As u can see the Vette and the Viper work this thing.<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. Ok everybody stop fighting over which car is better the forums should be for people to go to and talk about cars. So everybody stop trash talking and shut up!
