not 4.5 ... thats the fastest I've seen for a stock SRT8, normally it would be 4.7-4.9

Still waiting to see an actual head to head challenge of the 2010 mustang, and the 2010 camaro. Not something they did on two different days at different tracks and compare them. Thats a head to head. When they actually have both cars at the same track in same conditions, then we can call it a comparison.

And further, let's hope they're not comparing cars that are broken in to a Camaro w/15 miles.

The SRT8 is not faster than the 2010 Mustang.

and i seriously doubt GM will be extinct.
The 2010 Camaro has been talked about for a long time, and GM has been trying to get this car out quickly, but honestly GM fell on its ass.

I saw another 2 2010 Mustangs today on the way to school. I still have yet to see a 2010 Camaro on the road.

The fact that GM had to push off production of their new 2010 Camaros, combined with the fact that many Camaros are stuck in QC that GM has utterly failed. Why else would you see these pink milk thingies dancing ? People are "losing the faith", and for good reason.

I think that if GM should actually start fighting for its survival, and not just continue as if things were going well.

We all know the Mustang is almost as fast straight line and better at handling, but all the regular people want to hear about is HP and how much it has. Ford will have to raise it up a notch next year in the HP department, and they will, making the '10 Mustang not a great purchase in my opinion.
It's rumored that the Coyote engine will bring the mustang back to its 5.0 roots. Guess we will wait and see. Also the ecoboost v6 twin turbo is rumored to be a option as well. Another wait and see.

Though the updates are supposed to happen, the 2010 is still a great deal. A track pack 2010 performs very very well. And since its still the same engine a billet, a F/I kit will put you at HP you need to be competitive with anything out there.

In the end, a GT is still lighter than a SS or Challenger. So even going F/I, a mustang can still compete simply because its lighter. You can only be as fast as your pockets are deep anyway...

Yes it is.

I'm sure there are a few examples of some being poorly driven that give the impression that they are not faster. But the SRT8 is most definately the faster car.

Hmm the new MT had a 2010GT edge out the Challenger. If I remember, they were even in 1/4, and the Stang destroyed it on the agility for the track. The Maro and Stang outperformed the Challenger in a lot of tests actually..

The placing was
1. Maro
2. GT (dam near a photo finish the article said)
3. Challenger

In the end, drive what you love, and the hell with articles.

Just got my motortrend mag, good read..

Quote:
Motortrend june 2009 Pony Car War!:
"Finishing in second place...Ford Mustang GT. Mind you, this was a photo finish.
The Mustang with the track pack blew us all away with its sublime steering,
incredible front-end grip, stylish cockpit, and beauteous V-8.
As Losh notes, "Ford's two competitors had the advantage of sampling 45 years of Mustang DNA, Yet they still couldn't pull out a runaway win."

"The best steering in an american car. Ever."

"That GT turns-in like a race car" was our communal opinion after our mountain romps"

"Biggest surprise here, I thought the camaro would leave the Mustang in a ditch, but i was genuinely surprised at how capable the mustang is."

"The GT comes in with a neck bending 0.95g on the skidpad, and faster in the figure eight than the camaro with a 25.5"
SoFlaZ jessus christ man, i think i saw it move.

It's gonna come after you, beware. The green machine doesn't play around.

How come your fog lights are in the middle? Do they come like that on the CS? I thought it was a v6 at first then you bought GT lights to stick on it but now I see its a GT/CS.

Oh ok. I just need a job so I can get a Camaro and get rid of this pile, its great for A to B but its not going to cut if for much longer lol.

Back to the topic, Camaro still won but the mustang is still impressive. Is are any of the steering components different from a regular GT and one with track pack?

That was on one test. Go see the Chargers and 300's if you want to look at the full track record of what that platform can do more often than not.

***The new 2010 Roush has a sticker price of $52,000+, then the dealer mark up of whatever.

Point being take a $36,000 2SS Camaro, Drop $15,000 in it and watch it run circles around your Roush for less money.

Isnt the gt500 only a high 12sec car with 500hp?


Why not buy an 03-04 Cobra and a $60 pulley....they look better and are faster.
