Around 4:30 they state the fuel mileage on REGULAR gas....that probably didn't help the times. And I agree, 13.5 is laughable.
I think it was Motortrend that tested a 2011 Brembo w/ 3.73 and it did a 12.7 quarter.

2015 Gt with perf pack/Guard Green/MBRP race exhaust/Steeda shifter bracket/ ....... more to come

About the worst track prep imaginable, I spun so bad it felt like my clutch was completely gone. Also their organization was terrible. I ran a best of 12.73 @ 113ish feathering the clutch and throttle there out of two runs. The first run was, ahem, worse than Motorweek's run....

I was just making light of the review. I found it somewhat humorous and wanted to share.

I used to watch this show when it was still on PBS. I even used to get up early on Saturday mornings just to see it. Back then I think it was exciting because there was no alternative, as in The Internet.

I watched it again about a year ago and it was about as exciting as watching paint dry.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

Good point, right there is a small hp/tq loss, plus I think someone mentioned they had TC and AT on.

Everyone knows the '11-'12 GTs are faster than the '13s.....wait for it...wait for it... I'm just kidding, but seriously I usually buy a new car about every year but didn't like the front end of the '13 and the spy shots of the new one don't impress either. I guess I will just try to pick up a used GT500.
