Yea because weight doesn't matter at all right?

This thing is stupid, for $110k you might as well get a ZR1, it's better in every way.

The GT's not Gt500's
A GT500 still has more horsepower than a CamaroSS.
Stock for stock , I'm sure the GT500 will beat an SS but then again they aren't really on the same level IMO.

I do not see the point in getting all worked up over someone geeking a car up and selling it for a bunch. Lets face it fellas, the only thing that is going to settle who has the baddest car is money. You can do anything you want to any car you buy. So what is the point unless you got a Camaro funny car that sets low et in the NHRA. Live with having a great looking car that will shit an git. Bolt on a few things and whoppee. The guy in the next lane just bolts on a few more things. At what point is it done? Dont worry, be happy it is almost here.

let's be a little more specific...
the GT500 will beat the SS in a straight line

The car probably could. I'd be willing to bet most of the owners that drive thier GT500s won't be able to beat me driving mine at an 1/8 or 1/4 mile track. I am betting I can drive it better. But then I guess to be fair I should be allowed to put my power adder on so both cars have one .

LOL you pay me 100k and Ill build you a badass twin or single turbo Camaro that will smoke either car and look as badass doing it.

Hell for that matter gimme 80k and I'll have your camaro out run either car and you can still have 30k in the bank to bet on the race with!

I might have to check into one of these.
I find it very disturbing for one to pay over 40k for any type of Mustang or Camaro. When people throw out dollar figures such as 80k for a Mustang? 109k for the HPE Camaro?

But hey, some parents eat their young. So what do I know.

Certainly, not $38,000 worth of more to be sure but please don't perpetuate that line of thought.
Camaro or Mustang a mid 30k car with added bell and whistles make a 80k or 100k price tag. For what? Better brakes. Better handling. Better look? More power.

I thought the same thing. But the posts on the other forums is what did it for me.
I just don't trust anyone who acts as unprofessional as he does.

Well, thats great an all. But launching, or even using that much power is...well.......not easy.

For example, here's a launch of a 1000+ HP twin-turbo LS7 Corvette.

It ain't easy. yes, that was Lou. And, he got this thing to 210 + in a mile. : - )



Anything over 650 HP requires --- Attention -----

Thats a great deal. But you'd better be ready for it.
