    Think I could beat this?

    So my boss just picked up one of these today: http://www.mustangheaven.com/stangsp...07shelbygt.htm

    Kind of funny, he trades in his Ram 4 days after I first bring my Formula to work.

    I've got a '00 Formy A4, all stock.

    I don't know if I can take him, but I think it'd be a close race. His is an auto too. He didn't challenge me or anything, but I just thought of it after everyone at work was swooning over his car. Big deal, it's just an overpriced GT. With hood pins, lol.

    It looks cool but for what he paid for it he could have gotten a Challenger or a new Camaro if he waited a while. Or even a Vette for a few grand more.

    I think with a lid, cut-out, and free mods I could take him.

    If anyone can afford one, (GT 500 That is) They are priced around $65,000 here in Denver with the "Everyone wants one" mark up. Friggen ridiculous. I think I'd rather have the new Z06 before I'd pay that.

    What???? That Z06 would blow your CTS-V out of the water and they're still pretty comfortable. The base C6 would even lay the smack down on it.

    th shelby gt maybe a tad faster than the regular gt but it still isnt too fast. probably right on par with a stock f body give or take a few tenths.

    I just think it's funny that he spent almost 40k for some stripes, badges, and 25hp. For that money he could have started w/a base GT and made a monster out of it.

    I should wait till I do a few basic mods and get him to come to the track with me, I'd love to se his face after his Shelby gets beat by a 7 year old car that cost 1/4 what his did.

    A guy I work with called me up last night to make fun of him, lol. He thought it was a GT500, then started laughing when he found it was just a GT.

    (In reality, I think we're just being petty becasue we can't afford 40k cars. And even if Ih ad the money, no way would I buy one of those)

    As far as Caddy, I love all the -V series cars, It's about time Caddy really got it right. I'd take any one of them over a BMW or whatever, and while they might be a little slower than the Vette, they still move DAMN fast for a luxo car. And you can't take 3 people w/you in the Vette.

    i didnt see you were an auto.

    you may have a tougher time stock for stock. my 6 speed pulls on gts but its doesnt put all the lengths on them everyone likes to claim.

    either way, run him and see.

    and i wholeheartedly agree with you about paying for stripes and badging. silly.

    Geez, he could have supercharged a stock GT, added a cam, etc. and been at 425+ HP. I can understand wanting the GT500, but not the Shelby GT.

    Your should have no problem beathing the Shelby GT. I think its putting like 300-305 to the wheels. The only reason that I like the Black and silver one is because I am a Raiders fan and they paint job was to made for the Raider nation. God forbid that I ever buy anything other than GM but if I was to buy the Shelby GT that would be the only reason ever.

    its a GT 350, but yes, 40 gs is hard on lots of people, and for the mods on that car( 25+) hp its not worth it

    Should be a good race, stock to stock it would probably be more of a drivers race than one car out powering the other.

    He paid basicly 10,000 more for a GT with 19 more hp

    I saw a brand new one with the new rear gearing run a 14.3 against my n2o v6 a few months ago. The LS1s and such were all in the low 13's and my 75 shot v6 was in the high 13's. I think they're dogs... but that car was an auto as was mine and as is my current whip.

    I like autos better... more practical for traffic and whatnot. little less power, but it's a lot more consistent and since I have HPTuners I would be surprised if a stock M6 could beat me.

    anyway.. just my $.02.
