I love it when people smack talk about a cars performance when they've never ridden in one, or even seen one in person.

A buddy of mine from Tampabaymustangs.com, (Jim) got to go for a test ride during a car show here in Tampa. He had nothing but sincere praise for it, and relayed that it was definatley a dream come true.

Just withold your criticism of the car till you actually see one in person, or ride in one.

Personally, I can't wait till I get the chance.

I remember I started a thread on why people hate mustangs. A large consensus is that it's, in reality, a great performance car for the money, and tough to beat.

People are hating on the GT500 partially for some of the same reasons...even from fellow mustang owners. Some pent up hostility due to the fact that you can't get this car for under 45-50k dispite it's rareness, which is out of the reach of most of us. So since most of us can't get our hands on one, we'll bash it, maybe out of anger towards Ford+Shelby for making such a rare and expensive car(instead of building another continuation of the '04 Terminator) that's normally built for the common man, and dealerships who jack the price up.

I know I was upset since I've been wanting a Cobra for some time, and I figured the '07 would be around 35k,36k. Just within my reach. Then I heard Shelby was making it and they were dropping a 5.4L with 500 hp, and I knew I wouldn't be able to afford one...so naturally I was upset too.

But in the end, you realize there will always be another better mustang coming out after you buy yours. So....whatcan ya do?

I'm hoping to find a repo'd one on a car lot in the next year or so.

Lol. I was thinking the same thing. I see a lot of young kids buying these things. I'm sure you will find one.

I'm sure there will also be some wrecked ones just waiting to be restored.

As long as the subframes are straight I don't care if it's been wrecked. I just want one.

I have personally seen a gt500 with a custom tune and slicks go in the 11's which is not something one of us could do with a slightly modded car.

My friend has a GT500 vert he's ran

2.089/8.197/12.567/116.09 100% Stock on goodyears

1.754/7.660/11.890/120.93 28x10 16" Hoosier slicks on Weld XP's

1.704/7.496/11.652/122.598 on above Hoosiers and an SCT tune he built himself without the aid of a dyno.

He just installed a set of 4.10's and will be going back to the track this weekend.

BTW he dynoed at 448rwhp on a Dynojet.

As you can see the GT500 isn't the dog that some people think it is.

here's a link to his latest threadhttp://www.svtperformance.com/forums...d.php?t=324214

How anyone could think that this car is a dog is beyond me, except for those crappy times turned in by the 'Professional test drivers (HA!)'. Let one person publish an unspectacular time and trap speed and a car gets labeled a dog.

I think the best I've heard of from a box stock '05 or '06 GT is 13.4. And remember that R&T tests with the OE tires.

EDIT: For the record, I definitely don't think that the GT500 is anything resembling a "dog". It'd wipe the road with my '06 any day of the week, and would probably even edge out the 951 on a track I'm just saying that the R&T (and other published times) aren't far off of what your average, moderately-skilled driver will be able to get. Besides, the race starts when the road curves.
