Back to Stang

Ok guys I now have the enemy car the Camaro SS. Years ago I had a 2007 GT when I joined this forum. After getting the Camaro I have to say this. GM freaking sucks big time. Their build quality is down the drain, body panels that don't line up, 6.2L motor needs lots of hp in that body to go anywhere fast and is Embarrassing. I am also tired of those retarded members on that forum, they are sooooo freaking backwards OMG. They think the Z28 and other models SS and so on will beat every car that comes up against it. I personally think and am sure that the 2015 GT will demolish any Camaro even the upcoming Gen 6. What say you. I don't trust GM am looking at a Vette maybe but more so the next Mustang GT with independent rear suspension since I like to go to the road courses.

Well, I think camaros are interesting cars. I seriously considered one when I was shopping around for my Mustang. What sold me on the mustang was the lower weight, the kickass coyote, the aftermarket availability, and general build quality... and the fact that it was super simple to get exactly the options I wanted from the dealer (trackpack, no tech package, etc). I also find them the most visually attractive, with the best stock engine noise.

The camaro felt roomier and more modern, but it was kinda boring to drive once you got over the whole 'I'm driving a Transformer!' schtick. The challenger just felt too damn big for a car that was supposed to be a pony car. The mustang had a live rear axle...and while that initially turned me off, I grew to respect that this iteration of the live axle was arguably the best one ever applied to a production car. I'd rather have the best solid rear axle setup over a somewhat mediocre independent rear suspension in the competition cars.

...for the money they ask for a z/28, it sure had better beat something! For that amount of money, go buy a new z06 and call it a day imo. Or, take the difference and build up your mustang - there isn't many production cars that will hang with a 35k mustang with 25K worth of aftermarket parts installed.

If I were you, wait until the new platform has a few model years underneath it's belt - go buy a new 5.0 in 2017. You'll hopefully avoid the kinks that come with a brand new model, and by then the aftermarket will be fully established. Who knows, maybe by then they'll announce the new Mach 1 or something

Yeah, good Idea. Also it wouldn't even take 25k to make a 5.0 a demon on the track. I like the fact that JRZ makes a suspension kit for the 5.0.
