458 is the best look Ferrari to date. A seriously modded Camaro could probably beat one in a straight line but would get destroyed in a track setting.

New Mustang GT has gone from 420 to 435
Hellcat is 707 and huge gain over the 392SRT
C7 base is at 450 over 426 and the new Z06 is going to be at 650 over the older 505

Make sure you turn off T/C before launching. That will cause lots of spinning and wheel hop. The stock suspension on your car (FE3 I believe) is also going to cause hop.

Agreed

Remember the SS was not designed for FI where the ZL1 was. You can certainly get an SS to handle/perform like or better than a ZL1 but you better have a big wallet.
