    Can someone with skilz please photoshop the Ruby Red car's front bumper/Grille bar into body color...............Please?

    I suppose Ford might make a change like that for the 2021 Model year, but that would probably require a fresh round of ADM's/

    No, not you. The other guy trying to tell people they are idiots for buying one new and not waiting, and saying he needs 100k in his Cobra to run 9s. He's all over the place.

    I think the Demon will destroy it at a dragstrip. On the highway, just edge out.

    Considering the amount of stock Demons that have run 9s can be counted on one hand (maybe less), you are likely wrong.

    This is, of course, assuming the info in post 1 of this thread is true.

    LOL! After doing that I preferred the original black as well. Tried adding the white stripes too, but it was just too much.

    Gawd, maybe by 2023 I can have a slightly used one to sit next to my slightly used '11 Kona/White :)

    I doubt Im wrong. Based on what Im reading the 500 is a high 10 sec car, which is a far cry from 9s.

    Huh?

    I'm trying to think of an STI I've been on track with that would keep up with the GT350. I can only think of one car that would do it, and only in a straight line, he has a built engine and makes 550whp. A stock STI isn't coming within 12 mph of what this car runs on either straight.

    blows the doors off a 350.....
    C'mon. DA even at @ 6000 Ft is 7-8% factor on calculators.

    1/4 mile 350 traps 118mph, STI is 102
    with 6000' DA factor, GT350 is still trapping 109.74 MPH. That is assuming subby had no effect.

    FYI
    braking 70-0 GT350 146' vs STI 159'
    skidpad GT350 1.02G vs STI 0.93G


    edit: googling and yes STI's in weedland seem to be trapping 95-98mph

    I'm just glad the ricer wing is an option. I get why it's there but I would say most agree it's not necessary for cruising down the street.

    So let me get this straight we waited 5 years for this gt500 and maybe it’ll have 750HP lmfao talk about ford blue balling themselves. Honestly it’s depresses me to think that’s the big showcase feature is the [email protected]@- DCT transmission. This will be a 75k car msrp because the gt350 is still in production for 2020. It’s a bad joke and anyone who buys one for over MSRP should be ashamed of themselves. This isn’t some special engine either it’s a 5.2 cpc with port injection and a blower oh man what effort

    I’m with ya.

    Problem is Demon is a far cry from 9s too.

    I wouldn’t call 1/2 second “destruction”, but time will tell!
