Big deal. The Camaro had a freaking built automatic in it, I'd expect it to win especially if he had a good stall to spool the turbo on it. The Ford GT sounded pretty much stock, so he was making less hp. And they don't come with autos, so if you can't shift in one, you're screwed. I was surprised the Camaro didn't mash him more. Cmon, half a car? lol...give me a break. Its a Ford GT, yeah, it costs a lot, but I would take a GT over a Camaro any day of the week, even if it does cost twice as much. The motor in them are basically bullet proof and the car is setup well for any kind of racing.

With regards to PINKS, I like watching it for the cars mostly. Just to see what people bring. But I do agree, it does get a little stupid with the negotiating crap, but Rich does a pretty good job of making the races fair. I would like to see more street cars though rather than drag cars, but a lot of people can't afford to lose a car they wanna daily drive.

The atom is about 50 grand I believe. It's like having a Formula 1 car for the street. Great stuff.

You drive a trans-am, big g deal. No one asked. Perhaps you should learn to put it in the "what you drive" comments like every other person with more than one car.

An Eclipse 4g63 from the same timeframe as a Zetec 2.0 in the SVT's is roughly the same, with the exception that a Zetec with turbo would make more power than a 4g63 of that time. Granted, the EVO's use them, but also have good size turbos to make that power. You could make a good chuck of HP from a NA Zetec or Duratec WITHOUT a turbo. The turbo is just icing. Yeah, zetec, poorly designed by automotive engineers who do it all day everyday. Why don't you call Ford and tell them how to make a quality engine then?

So what if he is happy about beating a Suzuki, good for him. Perhaps he had a slower version Zetec, or perhaps was SPI, and an Automatic. Yeah, knock people when you have none of the facts attached. If he had a turbo charged zetec SVT, or turbo duratec, he'd probably get the same response from us as well, but who cares.

A heavily modded vehicle over anything stock, "super car" or not doesn't do much for me. Oh, and if you're going to put that it's a Ford GT, why not attached the GT40 for clarity? Mustangs have a GT as well, so yea. Now let's see, if I have to invest the same amount of time and money into a car as he had to making that camaro, I could probably build a car to beat the camaro and GT40 as well. Oh, and yet he claims 500+hp on stock motor, but has built cams and head. Yeah, good job. Why don't you take your hard on for his camaro and go smoke his pole since he beat an overpriced car? Bet that would make you feel special.

A zetec or duratec isn't meant to be more than what it is. The engine is built to push a hatchback or sedan at an economical price. The Camaro has ALWAYS been meant to be a "racecar". That's why it has a Corvette engine in it. Duh. SO, built Corvette engine, regardless of the body is going to be a challenge for MOST cars. Oh wait, were you too slow to realize that the Camaro doesn't have an engine just for itself? Sorry to burst your bubble.

A Camaro however is still a heavy, uncomfortable, unpractical, ferrari of white trash piece of shit no matter how you cut it. He threw money at it just like most aftermarket consumers do. So, let's try this one since you didn't comprehend the other photo:

Yup...

And I wanna know why this guy thinks the zetec is a "poorly designed" motor. What is "poorly designed" about it? Give us reasons and we will respect your opinion a little better.

Quit posting funny Photos. I just spit Mountain dew on my pretty LCD. You know how much this thing costs. LOL

WOW, a built drag Camaro beats a Ford GT. HMM. Wheres the AutoX or road race video to accompany this. Camaros are good for one thing, the Drag strip. They suck everywhere else. If you drive a Trans Am why didnt you buy a Cavalier to have a matching GM peice of SHIT.
I would like to see that Camaro GET OWNED by Toms 10sec FOCI. That would be Funny.

If a guys has a 10 second focus then that means he probably has an 8 second F Body because otherwise how the hell else is he going to pull it down the track in 10 seconds.

As for the having a corvette engine....So. As for being a "Race Car" I do believe the camaro gets 29 mpg on teh highway and about 26 in town straight outta the box from 98 - 02 so correct me if I am wrong but I don't know of the last time a race car got mpg similar to my wifes focus. And as for it being a gm shitbox....I wanna see you get 505 hp and 470 to the rear tires out of a pushrod motor and still have it driveable on the street.
