1,000 hp? It'll still run a 12.5 on street tires.

1/4 miles would be awesome unless they are still using OEM type parts. Shelby cars have always made decent power, it was getting that power to stick to the ground that's been the problem (and the weight). Look at when the GT500 came out in 2007. Should've easily smoked a C6 vette. Nope, not even close. It was a pig with poor traction. Hate to say it but a Hennessey 1000HP Camaro would probably kick this car to the curb and at half the cost.
