    All that power won't do much good till higher speeds if they can't put it to the ground though. Those things spin like CRAZY. If I had to choose over GM though I would buy one cause they look great

I'm thinking LT's and get rid of my 2.73 gears for some 3.73's and that fat pig of a car is history, unless he is modded.

    GT500= overweight underperformer. Kinda like the new Challenger and the new Camaro. The only car that is decent weight wise is the C6. Everyone else needs a diet.
    They run high 12s without traction, high 11s with traction.

    Yes they do have traction problems but that platform is just flat out nasty. All he has to do is throw a good tire on there and he will be hard to beat. Those cars with a blower sawap and supporting mods are running 9's in the 1/4 they are very very mod friendly.
