It's not an unpopular opinion. Maybe here with everyone circle jerking each other. But plenty of car guys I know in person and online see the same thing.

They are direct competitors as they are in the same class, at basically the same price point.

Not sure why so much nut swinging for Ford. Mob mentality?

If it were the challenger that was faster around the ring I'd be pointing that out instead of the 1le.

However the 1le is the king od the three atm, so learn to accept the facts. Less cognitive dissonance plz.

right, just because one vehicle performs another in performance metrics by a hair with a professional driver at the helm, the other becomes STRAIGHT GARBAGE

Not so much nut swinging, more just not saying the car is "garbage" though.

someone notify all the GT350r owners to light their turds on fire because they aren't even worth scrap metal pricing.

#40 on nurburgring vs #17

*a hair better*

So you'd pay the same money for a much more inferior car? Can't help you there.

right, 15 seconds different on a track neither of us could crack 10 minutes on in either car is a reason to call the other straight garbage.

A. It's not the same money, it's already talked about in here that it's 5k less. I know you say that's close enough, but I look at that 5k and see im over half way to a twin turbo kit for the GT350.

B. Much More Inferior on a track driven by a professional driver. This is the point we keep making, nobody on here is a professional driver that I'm aware of, so it comes down to personal preference. If I liked the looks and sound of the GT350R better then yes, I would "pay the same money" for the car that I wanted.

In the interest of high-quality reportage, we of course relapped the ZL1 (as fate would have it, our white car is the same car in which Randy Pobst set the 1:26.12 mark in last January) and the Shelby. The first takeaway is that despite being way down on power and torque, the Shelby was only 0.39 second slower around Big Willow than the ZL1. That’s impressive but not surprising. Why not? At Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the GT350R laid down a quicker lap than cars such as the Ferrari 458 Italia, various Nissan GT-Rs, Acura NSX, and Lexus LFA. I claim magic, though as Randy mentioned this time out, “I think that wing is doing something.”

You're aware that you're paying the same amount of money for an inferior car right?

lol I guess by his logic people who spend a million dollars on an old collectable car that comes nowhere near the performance of either of these is also crazy...

People don't seem to understand there are things other than performance that a car gets it's value from. I'd take a new GT350 over pretty much any GM product any day of the week, and twice on Sunday. The only GM vehicle i might consider over that is the high-end corvette.

This guy. hahahahaha

No one called the ZL1 garbage. I even praised the ZL1 1LE. Yet you call the GT350R garbage and say the Ford guys are nut swinging.

The fact that you call them competitors shows you are out of touch with reality. You couldn't even admit the GT350 and 5G Z28 are closer competitors. Which is a much better comparison based on equipment. Price point or not. The Z28 wasn't all it could have been based on it's parts. But was a great performer none the less.



And you ignored my cooling question.

Where are you getting a number for the GT350R on the Ring? Ford didn't rent the track, run it there, and publish numbers. So curious where that number came from.

Sorry you can't even keep up with updated information. Do a google search. I now see this thread is pointless considering you don't even know the lap time.

BTW it's #42 now

Entire forum strokes each others cocks and don't even know the lap time of this pos. LOL. Not rage quitting, rather not waste my time with people that want to gang up like imbeciles. Find your amusement elsewhere trolls
