    I ran a 13.07 in my brother's 03 Mach. Stock except for cat-back (even paper air filter). If I was a better driver (launch), high 12's would have been easy.

    Well,

    In 1/4 mile, the Mach is going to win, without question....

    In daily driver comfort, the way the car feels, etc. I think the new car is a better platform.

    Man, I LOVE my '01 GT, but I'm a sucker for the 'ol cars, this new one really looks good in person, the pictures don't do it justice!

    I'm hoping for a Mach 1 version of the new car guys, I think that would be sweet, or better yet, a "BOSS 302" with a 5.0 cammer engine!!!!

    Please , Please Ford, offer Grabber Green in the new Mach!!!!!!

    I still love my new edge, '01 GT!!!!

    Even though I think the 05 is a tad on the slow/heavy side, I'm still tempted to buy one as soon as the Whipple kit becomes available. That would then provide, the looks, new platform comforts, and power!

    They trap pretty damn close... I'd say though, between the 2 I'd still take the Mach. Just seems like it would be alot more fun to drive, even though the new Mustang GT's are neat in there own respect.

    From what I've been reading the 05's are have dynos in the same range as Mach's and 99, 01 cobras! With more tq than the 99, 01's? Driver's race?

    They do? :shrug: I have yet to see an 05 GT make a legitimate, all stock quarter mile run that breaks 100mph. Most are in the 97-99mph range, while an all stock 03-04 Mach 1 can trap 104-106 pretty easily.

    I'd imagine that's due to the throttle issue at redline everyone's mentioned on here already.

    You're probably right about that. I've also been giving some thought to the tranny/rear situation in the 05 vs Mach 1. I know that I can go through the traps in third gear, pushing the 4valve pretty close to the redline, about 6700rpms, which is still within it's powerband. But if the 05 is running the same 3650 trans and 3:55 rear, with a redline about 6000 on the 3valve, in conjunction with the goofy computer/throttle thing going on, that car has to be shifted into 4th well before the top end of the track and losing a considerable amount of revs doing it. It appears that the 05, with the exception of the incredible launch it gets, is at a disadvantage on the dragstrip in its stock configuration! It would also point to the computer reflash/chip being one of the most important mods to be made to the 05 Mustang, everything else should be secondary to that.

    I would think an owner of each would run each other heads up. The one who crosses the line first would most likely be the faster car. :shrug:
