    C6 with an LS3 is going to beat a GT500. C6 with the LS2 is a good race with the edge to the C6. The C5 Z06 can break into the 11's stock. I did it with mine. The C5 Z06 is the winner in that race. GT500 is definately getting beat top end by the Vette's. Aerodynamics are not a friend to the Mustang.

    Aero. plus gearing is key especially top end. It has tons of power but the weight is also an issue, its not a huge deal at the higher speeds but since it has a couple of other faults it really hurts the shelby. I have to admit ive seen a few around and they look good, im not a fan of black but it looks sick. It will demolish my car and any car that can beat me i have much respect for would i ever pick it over a C5Z or a C6Vette, no way but if your really into stangs and gotta have one thats a good looking ride that has potential of being modded to go really fast.

    The GT500KR is only 20 lbs lighter than the base GT500 (3900 vs 3920). Source: Motortrend.
    The KR is said to put 540 to the tire though.

    540 is the flywheel rating. though I've seen vids of some laying 505 to 510rwhp. So it seems it is a bit under rated.

    Ok. However, my reference to the 03/04 Cobra was to the regular GT500.

    Sadly weight is the enemy of our current muscle cars. The gt500 was the first to disapoint us. Now we have a few more 400+ hp cars but they're only running high 12s to low 13s.
    99 35th GT: 5.0 stroker, twin 60 turbos, aeromotive return style fuel system, full suspension.
    575/563 @ 12lbs-adding more soon...

    07 Trailblazer SS(wife's): 22s, 3200 stall, cammed and bolt ons, lowered. 405/405

    Yup. The GT500....as heavy as it is with the iron block, blower, associated material, etc....is only a very few lbs heavier than the N/A 2010 Camaro, and significantly lighter than the Challenger.

    Neat cars, but what porkers they build these days....I'm just not interested in any of them.
