17 ZL1 Camaro arrives with 640+HP with a supercharger equals = one lap wonder!
Blowers have NO place on a track car if that track is NOT 1/4 mile in length!

I also love the 60s Mustang look. But the sound of that new flat crank engine just makes my hair stand. If they hold up and disguise the weight I will give it a go.

I drove the Stringray, really enjoyed it - one thing that had me wanting though - the engine. Lacked the snappy response coupled with the 6500 rpm redline was nothing to be excited about. I opted for the GT350.

Durability of these Ford race engines is why I choose to track them over my 997. Ford Racing's motors have a forged bottom end that can typically handle hours on hours of track time. Boss 302's always drive home after track events. The GT350 gets a good amount of cooling in the track option.

Also with the 5 year warranty - Ford honors track use. I tested this as I broke my transmission one session with a bad shift - Ford replaced my flywheel and clutch free of charge under warranty the following Monday.

I've watched a few videos on them now. Wow! This is the first mustang in a long time that I can honestly say I dig. They sound incredible.. Love the idea of carbon fiber rims on the R. That would be a 50k option on a gt3.

I am really liking this thing too. What you rather have, ESS Supercharged E92 M3 or GT350?

That's only if the transmission holds up. You really need to upgrade the stock one to make it last. Love the motor.

At its price point the GT350 appears to be a pretty good buy. Consider you can buy a GT350 for the cost of replacing the hood and two fenders on a 991 RS.

For sure.... but the current caveat is 99.9% dealers are asking huge ADM's on R versions. Even non-Rs are still selling at 5-10k ADM for the majority.

I think it depends on the implementation. I had a Jag XFR, which has a supercharged V8. Went to Jag R Academy track school. Ran the cars hard on the track all day and never had any overheating, heat soak or other problems. Unless the Chevy engineers cut their thermodynamics classes, I think the ZL1 is likely to be fine running regular length track sessions.

As for a GT350, I kinda want one, but I'm not paying the huge ADMs the dealers want for them right now.

I like the E92 M3 a lot but there isn't a BMW in production (past or present) that I would choose over a GT350.

Agreed - the MT-82 transmission was not nearly as robust as the rest of the car, i'm glad the Shelby gets a Tremec.

wow!

I'd take every BMW M3 past or present in front of a GT350.

But, that is what makes cars cool.. everyone has their own passion.

I'm interested to see how they hold up as some on here I'm sure will surely try to use all 10/10 of the vehicle.
