Let's not forget how a Shelby GLHS beat up on a 65 GT350. In another 10 years 1000 horsepower transportation pods using unobtanium will be the norm

In another decade ot two, we will have a review of an electric Shelby named toy with digital CS signature on the dash and "agressive" stripes on the side and over the top racing one of those old noisy, stinky cars of yesteryear.  The only smoke from the e-car will be when the batteries decide to overheat and ignite. 8)

These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Florida S.A.A.C. diverse and inclusive.

With a set of gears, a good converter, decent tires and a FRESH 428 the OLDIE could rip off low 12s easily. I think their point was to say look how this new thing runs which anything with high 700 hp should run. Our in house drag race specialist Randy knows more about drag set ups than myself but if I had almost 800 horsepower on tap I feel confident I could build a beater to spank this new car at a way better price point then this new car. That's what I think is fun as opposed to plunking down a wheel barrow full of money at my local dealer and going racing... Everyone likes something different.  ;)
No doubt.... but this thing will do 10:80s @ 133 , so reported at least right off the shelf. And the next w-end you can do a little programing change, go road racing and be competitive right out the gate, just add meatball.

Are you referring to the driver?  ???
