the new v6's come with 2.73's in the back. I feel like that is a large part of both the 29mpg AND the sluggish start.
The 3.73 are how they get the MPG and have a little to do with the sluggish start since that engine doesn't produce it's power until 4k rpm

This video really shows how much the weight of another person in the car affects it, hen the camera man is in the gr, notice how close the v6 keeps up on it on takeoff compared to the two races prior
But then, the V6 had the camera man on the first two runs.

The video is cool for shits and giggles, but not a really good comparison for a few reasons, my sexist beliefs aside.

Were these both automatics or manuals?

In a straight line, the GT is going to pull from the line but I'd LOVE to see a standard 4.6 GT vs a 3.7 V6 with the performance package on a road course...
