    I looked at an 04 GTO when the Mustang was on order. It was red on red and man I loved that interior. The only thing that I didn't like were the knobs for the HVAC controls but everything else was top notch.

    yeah, actually my choice was between the Goat and the GT, but the price and what i got for the price is what sold me. I got mine with 10,000 miles for 23,000 and it came leather,200 watt 6 disc cd changer and radio, matching gauges, 350hp and m6 tranny vs. for a 05 GT fully loaded i would be at $30,000 so i went with the Goat.

    My GT was 29K with every option but the slushbox auto. I got leather, 1000W 6disk mp3 stereo, 125 color guages(more of a toy, I set it to one color and it hasn't changed), 100K warranty. I could have bought the goat for the same price (sticker was 33K) but wanted the Legend Lime color. If the car had been blue on blue like yours, the decision would have been much harder. It seems like every car I see is either red or black and I wanted something that would stand out. I really like your car.

    Fully loaded at $43.5 makes a pretty nice, luxurious car but no question, $15k on ANY car takes it into the 12s or faster. Mine just happens to have a serious weight penalty which means it will always have that disadvantage.

    And needing a 4door, thank goodness I didn't get an Evo or STi, right?!!??
    STi any time over any dudge.

    i had an srt8 kinda mess with me about a month ago.
    he was along side of me and would goose it.
    he did that 3 times and on the third time i also goosed it.
    i goosed it to the point that my rear end went sideways and towards him, lol.
    i stabed the gas at 27mph which is my sweetspot.
    after that he wanted no part of me

    Was your ET on slicks? The SRT8 should have raced you anyway, since they trap around 108-110. It would have been fun and 27mph is a sweetspot for them too.

    Ok so this dont seem right, are R/Ts the same as SRT8's. If they are wat is the difference. My dad just got a brand new 06' R/T and I rolled him with traction problems. Shut off at about 90 and had a good length on him maybe 1 1/2.

    Please explain
    Thanks David

    Entirely different drivetrain and suspension package.

    R/Ts and Daytonas are 5.7s, 340-350hp.

    SRT-8s are 6.1s, 425hp, beefed up internals (rods, crank, oil squirters, sodium filled valves, etc) and axles.
    Bilsteins front, Sachs Nivomats rear, 20" wheels w/ big Brembos on Goodyear F1 Supercar tires. That set-up is probably more significant than the hp upgrade.

    Good kills, but since you're 6.1L, 425hp it sounds like it's time for you to try your luck against the LS2.
