Well I think it's been proven many times that the new Mustang is just a tad faster than the Camaro.

But I would still rather have a Camaro.

i hear you, if they went independent rear, it might open the car up more suspension wise. would be good on a road coarse.

the new 5.0 is doing good at the drag strip because of the SRA. better launch, better R/T. ford has the sold axle dialed in quite well with the 5.0's and IMO actually handles better than our cars

+1000

I would rather own a V6 Synergy Green Camaro than a Mustang any day. Wait I do own a V6 Synergy Green Camaro. Lots of fast cars out there that are faster than mine, although not as Sexy as Mine.

I could see this conversation at the end of the track.

Mustang: Hey I beat you, haha.
Camaro: Ok, great.
Mastang: Yea, I am bad As
Camaro: Yea so bad that I out sell you every day of the week.

All 05+ mustangs use solid rear axles. No, it does not mean they don't handle well. The boss 302 handles amazingly and also runs a solid axle. The only mustangs that have run IRS were the 99-04 cobra.
