A few of the comparison tests has the Camaro still slightly faster than the 5.0 Mustang, but its close. I'd say that it's a driver's race. Throw in some twisties though, and I think the Mustang wins, though even with the extra weight, the Camaro is no slouch either.

I have not raced one yet my brother-in-law is getting one next year I love arguing with him on this one from what I have read and from driving the car I think it comes down to the torque - the camaro has more but the mustang has a better top end so it is all about getting to the top end quicker I have the 3:73as well but I think 4:10 will really wake the car up in the end I told my inlaw get the camaro and we will have some fun but no matter what I will always beat you and I will spend less doing it
