    I never looked at weight as a bad thing. I've had all mine on scales, and they are what they are, some over 4,000 lbs and dedicated to the track as well as the street. Actually I've always looked at it a bit different, as heavier cars or big bodied cars going fast being more impressive. Takes more power to do the same thing as a lighter car, harder to 60 foot, especially on smaller tires, and also harder on parts.
    Anyone can take a little 2,000 lbs. car and make it fast very easily. Which goes back to what you mentioned, it's important to take weight into consideration when comparing one to the next.

    No.

    And I prefer going fast with less power and a lighter car. To each their own.

    again it was an auto Camaro (auto on a 5th gen=only 400hp, as opposed to 427hp with the manual) vs an auto mustang (which has the same 42Xhp rating in both auto and manual)

    although it was a biased and misleading fight, even it was manual vs manual, the mustang would still win, just not by nearly as much.

    Tough call. My stock 02 WS6 ran 107 in the 1/4 on street tires with a 2.0 60' but from my little experience traction usually doesn't effect MPH.

    To an extent, this is true. Traction good enough to get a 2.0 60 ft probably won't hurt MPH (at least not significantly). However, excessive wheel spin WILL hurt it, sometimes considerably.
