Default Shelby GT500 vs Roush Stage 3

Hey guys, I found this clip of this British show that tests performance cars. Here is a nice clip (about 7 minutes) of a Shelby GT500 vs Roush Stage 3. They also preview it with a 68 Mustang (like the one in the Bullet movie)

The Roush is a far better road course car. I have the stage 2 susp along with some other changes. It makes a world of difference. As for the brakes I don't think the Brembos they are using are big enough for a 470rw pony car. Not too mention the front end is much heavier on the GT500. But I will say that if I could get a GT500 for MSRP and add the roush susp orBMRand some Big Baer's the GT500 would be far superior for a very reasonable price.

The potential of the GT500 is amazing. But stock for stock the Roush is a far better car

Default RE: Shelby GT500 vs Roush Stage 3

you guys seem to forget even IF the shelby was the worst handling, slowest car in the mustang lineup its STILL A SHELBY

that being said this video was dead wrong

wrong motor
wrong suspension
wrong brakes

so he compared a tricked out roush to a shelby thats not even what the shelbys are

I was told on here that a blown V6 is so fast you need FAA approval to take off in one.

Apparently Europe doesn't get the same shelby we do.

a posh brit like Jeremy might think the suspension and brakes were the same as a standard GT because he was probably driving a test mule that had been beat on and the brakes were probably shot. It also doens't help that he is testing a convertible, the heaviest mustang against a slim and trim roush coupe.

I don't think anyone would argue that a Roush 427Ris better on the track thana Shelby GT500 vert.

Actually, that video was filmed in Willow Springs raceway near Las Vegas, so i don't think that they were testing the british version of the shelby.
Also, if you see the first part of that video he is testing a Mustang V6 and he thinks it is a GT with a V8 and 300 hp, which he races against a real mustang (the horse) and the horse wins, and at the end, he says that the car is slow. now, i'm not trying to offend any v6'ers here (sorry if i do), but i dont think a gt would be beaten by a horse.

Also, if he spent more time taking the turns more fluidly than forcing the car to drift, he would have went faster...to me, sliding wastes speed, time, and tires...

The Roush Brakes are superior to the Brembos on the SHelby.

Roush makes good stuff, but its supercharger is inferior to the ATI Procharger.
