I see arguments from both sides of why that may be true or untrue. Why would GM sand bag the Mustangs? That doesn't give them a good bench mark. A counter argument could be that GM was sand bagging them because if they didn't, maybe the Camaro would be slower.

Point being, I prefer 3rd party tests.
Mustang people can say what they want...I know the folks on Camaro Team are extremely harsh on themselves as they want to be the best, bar-none - because they know they can be. It doesn't make any sense to me that they'd rig the results.

That said - I also like 3rd party tests...however, you get some organizations like Road and Track, who while performing the 2013 lightning lap, missed a shift in the 1LE, admitted they could have saved a couple seconds at least, yet proceeded to post that time up with all the others.

So...imo...I prefer Camaro Team's pride and insane infatuation for perfection wherever possible.
