True, bench racing is pretty useless. But, Fastball, I think you are severally mistaken about the 05' GT times. I have not seen ANY Credible mid-low 13 second runs in a stock 05'GT. We are talking at a real dragstrip with a full timeslip to prove it. There just haven been any yet. Dont go by Motortrend either. Likely that test was run at an abandoned airport somewhere. Hence, magazine are useless for the most part. Best FULLY VALIDATED run I have seen is a [email protected] on stock tires at a real track. We can essentially say the Mach is FASTER as it consistantly averages a higher trap speed than the 05'GT. 103-106mph for the Mach and about 99-102mph. If you have serious proof, like a picture of a timeslip, of a low 13 second 05'GT, please post it. I have yet to seen one anywhere. There have been lots of claims, none of them backed up when push came to shuve.
