its people like you that make me hate forum boards. My statement was merely a matter of my own opinion, maybe you missed that part. Secondly...im not here to bash the gt500. That car is definately a work of art, just not my style. looking past performance, i went with the saleen due to the styling and rarity of the car! I had a 2001 non supercharged s281 which i modded the **** out of, and trust me...i feel the same way you do about modding a car. Unfortunately, wanting the ZO6, It was still out of my price range do to sticker markup at the time! Besides the fact, i would rather get a car that is 1 in 160 than 1 in 4000. Half the people i run into (on a daily basis) have never even heard of Saleen. so, as i said, not here to bash shelby, just dont care for the car as a whole. as far as street racing, as i said before, friends of mine that are executives at Saleen have raced their 475 SC saleens w/ gt500 and beat them severly on the freeway, but as i also said, they are professional racers that test Saleen Special Vehicles! ZO6...now on to what i REALLY said...yes...the zo6 definately outperforms an E, but it would be a close race. I said it MIGHT outperform the zo6 which is something friends have told me that work for Saleen, but i disagreed with them and they said it is definately a close race because they've had them head to head. the E runs 12.3 stock, zo6 11.8. Compared to a zo6 on the dyno which would be mid 400's makes up some of the difference in weight TO A DEGREE. Yes, that car is EXTREMELY lightweight and if i had the opportunity to get one, i would’ve gotten that over the E anyday! but also given who i know at saleen and what i REALLY paid for the car...brings YOU back up to reality. I know you stated that you didnt mean to be so harsh, well i dont either I was contemplating getting just a C6, but I didn’t because I prefer to have a back seat and trunk space. Plus I have a bad back, so climbing in and out of a tiny car is not my gig. Trust me….i know exactly where the z06 stands, but with the opportunity I picked up on the E…its way more than I ever asked for. From what I heard around the metro-detroit areas…I wont disclose the name, but I have heard that an 06 E went onto the dyno at a large auto performance shop, they took the governor off, and it pushed 203 mph, but again, that’s only WHAT I HEARD, but I find that easy to believe given the 6-speed trans and the balls the car still as at 120 mph on the freeway. Is that a fair reason for feeling the way I do? Again, I apologize for being “harsh” as you said, but just wanted to clear up what I was trying to get across. As far as the suspension goes...no ****...i put a full coil-over suspension system on my previous Saleen...so i know a lot more than you think, but i was kind of classifing this car with other production cars...not aftermarket. as far as stock goes...the suspension on the E is pretty good...not the best...but pretty good....MUCH better than the 99-04 model suspension system, and substantially better than the 06 n/a and s/c models!!!...but im not a dumbass. since im not here to bash GT500's, how come it seems you came here to "bash" the E??? cause you certainly said more harmful towards my car than i did the gt500!
