Do you think it was right that the mustang got to use the trackpack in the comparison

I dont really see how the mustang got the trackpackage, none of the other cars " camaro and challlenger"? i feel it should of been all base test no extras across the board. SS vs GT. how do you folks feel?

Well if they did that the Camaro would have absolutely KILLED the 'Stang... they had to make it close to make the Blue Oval lover's not want to jump infront of a truck!

It was to keep the cars in the same price range.

I think they did it right... top of the line vs. top of the line... the prices were within dollars of each other and the results have, so far, all been pointed towards the Camaro pulling ahead of the Mustang in every respect.

something to think about is that the Camaro and Challenger have IRS and the Mustang doesn't... so testing the Mustang without the track pack puts it at a very heavy disadvantage in handling, but a distinct advantage in pricing... I would rather see a dollar to dollar test than a base vs. base test.

In all fairness top for top would mean 2010 Camaro SS(since the Z28 has been shelfed) vs 2010 Mustang GT500. But as long as your happy not being compared to the true top Mustang that's ok. What ever it takes to make you feel like you're on top eh?

Absolutely agreed. Can't give the Mustang guys something to complain about in the comparison. Now the Camaro kicked its a$$ fair and square.

hush it, fanboy, or we'll compare your GT500 to the Camaro SS and find that while your car is faster through the quarter, the Camaro is faster through the cones and grips better on the skidpad... and costs ALOT less money.

but if it makes you feel good to think that your overpriced Mustang with its now extinct underpinnings is faster through the quarter mile because you dont think you'll ever have to make a single turn left or right, keep right on ahead believing in that car... along with the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny and Santa Claus.

they're already whining because the GT was compared with the SS instead of the MUCH more expensive GT500.

They would have been stupid not to test the Mustang with the Track Pack. It's an option that is available to anyone that cares to order it. The Mustang is probably a closer competitor to the Camaro than most people expected. Stock vs stock in certain areas the Mustang may have an edge. Since I'm an autocrosser, I feel the Mustang may be the better choice in stock class. On a roadcourse the Camaro may very well have the upper hand. On the street as a daily driver the Camaro would win in many areas. I love the looks of the Challenger, but it is even more of a porker than the Camaro. It's great to have choices.

Wow you're my hero!!! Such a commanding grip of the english language. Nice to see that you have to resort to name calling. Plus you live on fantasy Island as you have no proof of a 2010 Camaro SS smoking a GT500 on any type of track. Keep up the good work.
