    I'm still blown away that this argument can even take place. These options at dealerships was unfathomable not that long ago.

    This sounds like opinion, not fact. Just sayin.

    Compare the mods for each and the times, then tell me which one is on top.

    no shit, factory 10 second cars and 9s with minor mods being called flops, get the **** out of here. I'll reserve judgement on the GT500 for a while but all in all seems to be doing as expected - it's pretty quick in the 1/4 and will stay lay waste to most on a road course.

    I guess the other question is - does the benefit of the tire upgrade outweigh the drag of the aero on the track pack car in a dig run. I believe Ford is on record saying the non TP car would be the better drag car

    Of those two cars the Dodge is faster. Saying “you doubt the updates in tuning will turn things around for the GT500” is opinion.

    I’m pointing out that you’re speculating. Which degrades your argument. That’s why.

    It really doesn’t degrade anything. It was just an opinion. Lol

    I’m just going to go ahead and say it, “The Predator is the 2nd coming.” I don’t condone it but street racing videos are going to be crazy. The chief Engineer of this platform wasn’t playing when he said there is a lot of room on the table to grow with this car. Is safe to say with a couple mods this might be a 1000 horse monster roaming the streets? Time will tell!

    Magazines are terrible and I place no credibility on any of them. Also comparing redeye on the factory Pirellis is a waste of time. They could just as well be doing a pond racing comparo. Show me a mag that has run <11 sec in a RE.

    Totally different cars. Can't use a compairson like that to prove your point.

    Sure I can. Both identical cars other than aero, CF wheels and stickier compound tires on both the 350 and 500 models.

    guess what (out of those differences) will help the cars accelerate faster?

    Those very expensive CF wheels and stickier compound tires net about 0.2 et and 2mph difference

    You're cherry picking. Tire construction favors the 4S in this case for drag racing.


    ^This.

    All the data that I have seen has favored the CF wheel cars.
