You won't find any Welds or any other light weight wheels for these cars at $700.

Let me know when you find the same deal for wheels/slicks, and ill be buying them for all of my cars. I don't see this car running 10's cheap. I've been on the caddy forums for well over a year with my cts-v, and no one has done it that cheap over there. Maybe the updated mr suspension, and 50lbs weight savings will make a huge difference?

I think this car could have dipped into the 10's on this outing had they disconnected the front sway bar. I could smoke the tires badly before I disconnected mine....now it'll dead hook on white concrete. I can't wait to go back to the track. And guess how much it would have cost them? Nothing.

ps:I own a pully/tune 2011 Gt500 and am thinking of getting auto ZL-1 this summer..

I can't believe that car has the stock gears in it. He's shifting into 2nd gear at 60 feet and into 4th gear at half track. That car is geared for the 1/4 mile.

At the right dealer you can get one for under MSRP. Invoice plus dealer holdback is 49k. Yeah, ive been looking..................
Well I would post that over on the svt forums then because most of the people who actually have one on order and getting scheduled for build are paying more for some reason.

So.... 506 rwhp on their stock ZL1 baseline dyno pull. At a typical 20% drivetrain loss that puts the LSA at somewhere around 635HP at the crank (not the SAE rated 580). If Ford isn't underrating their new 2013 GT500 I would have to say that they're pretty equal and we still have yet to see if the GT500 can put the power to the ground like they've had sooooo much trouble with in the past.

Our cars are manual trans, more like 12% loss.

Most 11/12 GT500 trap around 117-mph, this car traps 124+mph? I'd love to know how a car gains 7+ mph in the 1/4 with only a set of tires? Weight reduction? My car actually lost mph when it hooked with radials

If the ZL1 which has a posted time of 116+ mph, all of a sudden had another time of 124-mph with radials, I am sure the SVT crowd would question as well.

You realize SAE ratings exist so that manufactures can't do this right?

It's also already well known the Ford has underrated the 2013 5.8. It makes 670HP at its extended redline of 7000 RPM, 650HP at 6250 RPM.

About all that can be left to see is whether or not Ford's launch control is as good as stated...

gt500 2013 is about 400-500lbs lighter with race seats (an dealer option on the car) straight line zl1 will get smoked, mustang still ulgy though :P lol. If zl1 will need about 50-100 more hp to haul that extra weight and beat the 2013 gt500, soo 2014 we can bite back maybe? Big advantage of camaro though is that huge engine bay, so might as well get a LSX454 in there
