    thats a collection of stuff I got off the net, all ETs are from Magazine articles, with street tires and 100% stock, I tried to post the best numbers I could find for each car. Almost every time I found one, another test would report them slower of faster, or curb weight would be differant, I know that they are all real close. just goes to show ya, all cars are differant as well as drivers.

    Which numbers seem off? Fill me in?

    Just my .02 worth but I think all the numbers look close enough to be respectable. I think the margin of error will be found in the driver more than anything. Some Car Magazines use drivers that are looking for the ride quality and some CAR MAGAZINES are true die hard gear heads who just want the true power specs and use drivers that drive it like they stole it and get the best ET's they can. Good job pulling all the info. together!!

    those numbers are close-but like he said-MAGAZINES AND WEBSITES-super street import mag would have very bias specs for our cars by the way

    with only 457 to the wheels in your 03-04 cobra, you are full of shit beating a zo6. You do realize they trap around 125+ in the quarter mile and run mid to low 11s? With the weight of your cobra, you have no chance.

    yes Im a mustang guy to.

    A 2001- 2004 ZO6 does not run low to mid 11's, the 2006 does run mid to high 11's.

    2006 ZO6 = 505 horsepower
    2004= 405 horsepower

    Get your facts straight before you say someone is full of shit!!

    Spanked him pretty bad, about 5 cars or so, 1st gear to middle of 3rd gear.

    Did those 5 cars happen to be length of a Matchbox or Hot Wheels?

    no, they were regular lenths. Every 3 feet is a car length, right?
    Or is it 4 feet= car length
    cant remember.
    Ill just have to ask the loser of the race, you know, the VETTE. He had the best view.

    Glad to see you have a sence of humor. Although, 5 cars from first to the middle of third is a bit optomistic.

    If You Think 3 Feet Is A Car Length, You Are Overestimating Your Kill By Far---5 Car Lengths Then Turns Into 2 1/2 Cars---- About 6 Feet Is A Car Length Depending On The Car
