Camaro vs. Mustang

I love my Camaro, but it is not my drag racing car. Here is a video of my DD, a Mustang, versus a Camaro SS. It didn't do too bad.

Not really an obvious troll since he's got almost 500 posts and also states in this post that he loves his camaro. I love it too but if my only need was speed in a straight line the mustang is the best buy dollar per 1/4 mile second times.

That said, we don't really need another debate...

This is what I meant by trolling (starting a Camaro vs Mustang war).

What trolling? We all know the Mustang is the leader and the Camaro is the follower...




























Now, that's how you troll ;-)

Not trolling. Just posting a thread. I don't debate Mustang vs. Camaro because I have both kinds of cars and they are both great in their own ways. I like to "Show and Shine" my Camaro and like to drag race the Mustang. I really don't see the huge deal. I just love cars in general.

I appreciate your kind and unbiased comment. I am proud of both of my cars. They are both fun in their own ways.

Thanks.

Both are VERY impressive. The ride in the Camaro is smoother, but you can't deny the rugged race car feel of the Mustang. It is personal preference. Although, anything with Shelby on it will be worth it's weight in gold now that Carol Shelby has passed. If you find a very good deal on a GT500, I would probably go for that based on this fact alone. Resell value will be better in the long run if you ever decide to get rid of it.

Geesh, did someone say for 1/4 mile the Mustang was the best bang for the buck??? Maybe a 2011 and newer but not the older 4.6. Stock Chevy Cobalt SSs give them a good run. In this case the Stang did a good job on the Camaro...oh, and I've had 6 Mustangs and loved them all...

Was that Windviel Blue? I liked that color. Too bad it wasn't more common.

I am sure he meant fox body. Ever see a LSX powered FOX? Very hard to beat mod for mod.

It is Windviel Blue. When we see one, it is usually a v6. We lucked up when we found this GT. It's actually supposed to go to my son in two years and serving as my DD until then; however, its times on the track are so good, I am thinking about keeping it and doing some mods. I don't ever plan to mod the Camaro, but we just put new shoes on the pony and are thinking of a shot of nitrous and a gear. That should get us easily to the 8s in an 1/8th.

Hardly any SS's could run in the 8s. In fact, the only ones that are breaking into the 8s are the ones with mods. My car is a 2006 GT 4.6 with only 300hp. It has pulled an 8.9 before, and it is completely stock with street tires on it.

The car can run 8's but normally the driver doesnt let it.

I was surprised by the times folks were putting up, though to be fair, the entire group is very much amateurs. Also, the humidity was quite high which didn't help, and then as the temps rapidly dropped folks were having problems with tires not gripping well (since most folks were not doing heavy burnouts to heat the tires up since these are mostly daily drivers).

What surprised me was that I was posting some of the best times of all the NAs, even though I was running a vert with an extra 300 lbs of weight. I was dialing in at 8.75-8.80 ... though best time was only an 8.82.

Most folks were having issues hooking up to start and their 60's were rough as a result ... I suspect it was eagerness to race and hitting throttle too hard or loading up too many RPMs... track conditions weren't very good and got worse toward the end of the night.

I thought it may be the altitude where you're at, but I ran a 8.7 1/8th mile bone stock on streets in Sport mode. Was about 75 degrees out too

The Mustang wasn't having any problems. I was pulling 9.1 and couldn't hook up on take off. I am very amateur as well. I have only driven down a track five or six different times. My best time in the Mustang prior to this time was 9.3 on this track. I was even running with a full tank of gas. I filled up right before I got there. I am not sure why the Camaros were running slow.
