    Na not just the weight it's the drivers that do a horrible job driving these cars.
    I mean look at some mags getting a 13.9 from a 2004 GTO and a couple years ago HOTROD mag got a 13.3 from a 2003 Cobra... :bash:

    They test drove the mule, those numbers arent projected. (only hp numbers are right now)
    A quote showing they drove it:

    It's amazing how bad these magazines are about stats and cars in general. There just there to make advertising money and put a lame ass report.

    They really are bad when they test these car, especially in the 1/4 mile tests.

    I mean it takes a few good pratice runs to put down a good time but it seems most (if not all) car mags. are getting times .3-.7 slower than what average people are putting down... It's just some bad driving on their part.

    The people building these cars are scared of them because they are so fast. My dad has heard, "Someone is gonna get hurt", at the end of the assembly line more then once...
