Looks like the Fat *** Shelby needs a diet. The difference in HP betewwn the 03-04 Cobra and the Shelby was not much but the extra 400-500 pounds blows monkey balls.

Re: 1 more Reason Why The Shelby SUCKS ***

The new Shelbys suck in my opinion, 500hp + 12.9ET = BS

Let the Neon race a Fox Body with 500+rwhp, and then see what would happen, bet the race would be alot closer. Still that was a bad *** Neon.

his point is you can mod any car (almost) to be faster than another...stock for stock the shelby would win.

The Shelby is the fastest stock Mustang ever made and some people have a hard time coping with that fact. End of story.

Re: 1 more Reason Why The Shelby SUCKS ***

I'd take a new shelby over an 03/04 terminator

that's just me though


then again I'd take an 03/04 mach 1 over either of the above.

Yeap. Cars that weigh as much as the GT500 have too many limitations.

Re: 1 more Reason Why The Shelby SUCKS ***

Terminator > all other late model mustangs. It will forever be known as the baddest mustang built. IT was a completely blank slate provided by ford for owners to create a masterpiece out of. The Shelby, while over rated and over weight, is not a blank canvas. To make it fast you must replace big parts and then be careful becuase the internals are not as stout as the 03/04 cobras. To go fast = replace supercharger. Termanator go fast = replace upper or replace lower or port....simple, inexpensive stuff.

Terminator > * .

Re: 1 more Reason Why The Shelby SUCKS ***

I don't see the original posters point, any car can be made faster than another with enough time and money invested. My 87 GT will out run both cars, vipers, z06, porches and a lot of others. It's still a old mustang and I'd rather have a slower 200G ferrari.

i think theyre pretty much the same in terms of 1/4 times stock for stock. the cobra lacks a few ponies, but the GT500 gained weight. if it really is 500lbs heavier(i dont know the specs) thats almost .5 seconds off the quarter in benchracing terminology.

Re: 1 more Reason Why The Shelby SUCKS ***

at least it has a live axle instead of a POS irs. If ford would have put a panhard/tq arm on the 03/04.... but oh well.

WE are in envy of the fox bodies, few cars can actually flex their chassis like that.

Few cars can also be made into 10 or 11 second street cars for well under $15,000.

Hey, you're sitting on pretty much the same chasis bud.

I can guarantee you that a fox coupe is stiffer than a 03 convertible. It's science.

With the way mine used to flex when I hit the gas hard....I think you might be right.

However, with the full length subs, there is no more flexing/twisting.

i will gladly swap you i'll even go up there to do it












also, has anyone ever heard of the phrase "run what you brung"? first of all, people like spector will say those races dont even count b/c it wasnt done on a track. secondly, if you cant drive dont race it.

isnt it a coincidence that everytime a GT500 loses, its always the driver, but never a driver error on the cobras part when they lose? what attracts suck-*** drivers to these cars, b/c so far every race the cobra wins, its always the drivers. could it possibly be that the gt500 just wasnt as fast? nooooooooo its the greatest car ever made

its cause the only ones that can afford the markup for them are suck-*** drivers.

i believe even if the GT500 had a SVT Cobra moniker alot of people would still deny their abilities. alot of people i know say its doubted because it has the Shelby name all over it, when in fact its still mostly a SVT platform and engineering. it has nothing to do with what it was named, its just not that great of a platform period. i dont think id ever go back to solid rear, i know if i sell the Cobra (due to insurance purposes, but its still up in the air) my first mods to Ellie will be IRS and a 6spd. as far as street launching and daily driving, IRS is just worlds better over SRA. for drag, eh, i can think of alot of other cars to spend money on before i went to SRA in a Terminator, to me, swapping out the IRS is like defacing a national monument.

until they build another SVT Cobra, i believe the 03/04 Cobras are the greatest mustangs ever built, and i said that even before the though of owning one ever crossed my mind.

I was refering to the engine, not the body/interior. It was a blank slate awaiting an artist's brush to turn it into its final street owning masterpiece.

Shelby will stick his name on anything for a price. Like the shelby charger in the 80's. Nothing but a damn Omni O24 with decals and stripes. Shelby's name means squat. What is under the hood is what is important and that is SVT!!!!
