ďThat donít make no senseĒ

What on Godís green earth did they do to that thing for it to gain 400 pounds over the current GT350?

Thereís a reason that my Ď91 Z28 felt as fast as the GT350 with much less horsepower...it probably weighed about 500 pounds less.

I would like to see power to weight ratio numbers/statistics over the years of older porches, Mustangs and Camaros. Yeah they had less horsepower, but they didnít have all this technological BS and giant 20 inch wheels to weigh them down.

True, the magna ride suspension does mask a bit of porkiness.




Also wanted to add some of the other car manufacturers donít do DCTís because they claim thatÖ ďA dual clutch transmission canít hold up to all the torque that the engine produces. ď
