Now people I know we can beat these because I've done research on all the stats, but my friends swear that they'll get us. I personally have not had the oppurtunity to race one but I'd like to know ya'lls input. To me they seem like easy dinner, mainly because they're ford and ford sucks. I can't wait til one pulls up next to me. Tell them to do somethin! :p

i think it would be a really close race but by no means will it beat the previous gen. mustang gt no problem. assuming the gt is a 5 speed i would have to say that the better driver would win.

I guess so I hope when I get next to one, that i'm the better driver. Even for a ford, those things sound and look nice. Well made but for the title and history of that name it should be way more powerful.

i hope i will be the better driver the day i race one as well. i have beaten the 94-95 style one that still had the weak 215hp 5.0l and smoked him. i agree the do sound awesome. i had an 89 5.0 with exhaust and i loved the sound. i agree they should be more powerful but look at them now. they are way more powerful than they used to be. i wouldnt even think about messin with a new gt.

tricky i assume you are speakng of the 99 - 04 Mustangs. I don't know what research or stats you looked at, but the 99-04 gt is faster then the cobalt ss stock vs stock. In fact it's a decent amount faster. Fastest stock gt is around 13.8-13.9 which most people obviously dont get but whats the fastest stock cobalt? 14.4 or so. i mean the gt has about a half second advantage over the cobalt. so i think you need to redo your research and stop saying that they should be more powerful when they are already more powerful then your car is stock.

Ignorance at its finest.

What you're not including are 60' times. Cobalts will run 14.4 with a 2.2 or 2.3 60'. Those mustang GT's need a 1.9 60' to run in the HIGH 13's. Give the Cobalt a 1.9 60' and the 1/4 times will be almost identicle.

Point being, unless the GT is luanching hard on a prepped surface, a Cobalt should be able to run with or even beat one. Especially from a roll.

yes great statement. You just showed me how much you know right there. Please pull up to a new gt or 03,04 cobra (even an 01)and tell me how much they suck when you can barely make out their talelights.

99-04 gts aren't that fast. I took them with np when i was stock. Though cobalts are slow so it might be more of an even race. Why not race him and find out?

My friend and i have had a go at it, he pulled on me (and not by very much, maybe a half a car lenght) but he also has exhaust, CAI, and throttle body spacer. Stock for stock i think it would be a very even race.
Oh and i have heard of SS getting 14.1's in the quarter mile. Like all cars it depends on the altitude and the driver

I raced my old mans 05 (flowmaster exhaust only mod) from a dig a couple of times... By 105-110 he had like 5-6 car lengths on me ... I had only had the car a week or something like that and kept hitting the rev limiter... but his car is WAY WAY Faster... Oh ya and I might suck at drag racing or whatever... But I assure you... HE REALLY SUCKS and still woopd me pretty good !

ok you guys you have to remember he is not talking about the 05 gt but the 99-04 style. you cant even start to think about comparing an ss to an 05 gt

I raced two '99-'04 GT's, and beat one, and the other was too close to call. both races were on the freeway.

well the 03-04 cobra is FORD and his statement was "Fords suck". So its relative to my point.

Exactly and notice everyone that I put previous Generation GT, not 05. I feel Cobalts are a lot stronger than some of you wanna think, maybe I just get big headed and want my car to beat everything. But Mustang GT's are nothin if cobalts are as close as they are, we do have little 4 cylinders and a small supercharger(still packs heat), and my bad I redid my research and found out that was a 98 mustang then again my man hear just backed my story up with him beating one. Thanx man! :cool:

Bring the Cobra vs the new Z06 what now step down and stay down, and if you think about bringin out that little Ford GT with 500 hp, we also got the Lingenfelter 800hp Twin Turbo once again step down and stay down. Raise your hand when you wanna talk to me.

There will be a new Cobra out within about a year or so. That WILL give the Z06 a run and it will still be cheaper.

Good kill on the stang. I've done it before from a roll. It would be much tougher from a dig.

my buddies 03 GT beat my radline by slightly under 1 car length. I had him 2/3 of the way down the track and then he inched by me.

Calm down b rabbit, this isn't a freestyle contest.

A you have to respect what ford brings to the table. a car with 390hp and for 31k. Its funny how chevy has to bring out a fucking 7.0 liter engine to make 500 hp. Btw you're saying lingenfelter which is aftermarket. Its basicaly a whole different car when you buy the 50k + lingenfleter package.

I'm sorry maybe I missed the part about Fords 500 hp engine? Oh the 5.4 liter with the giant twin screw supercharger! So is it funny that ford had to use FI to do it? I personally don't think so but I thought I would bring it up since you had some desparaging remarks about the ls7.
