In response to your sig:

1. I have never raced a mustang in my BMW. However, I did race several in my old 1986 Saab 9000 turbo. 2.0L, pumping 18PSI and a pathetic 215whp (I just cranked the boost and didn't modify injector mapping so I was running WAY lean) I walked away from GTs and totally spanked V6s. I also laughed my ass off while doing so. The old 4.0L V8s sucked balls. Big hairy sweaty balls.

The new mustang does rock pretty well in a straight line, however, the live axle is a disappointment. An open diff would be an improvement, because I'm sure that the GT could handle cornering fairly well with a good suspension.

Of course you compare the M3 to the Cobra. However, as many have said, drag racing an M3 is like fishing with a hooker, it's fun but it's not what you got her for. If you want to drag race, a Mustang is a much more cost effective option, if you want to hit canyons and road courses, a BMW is much much much much better.

A mustang Cobra R can match a modded Elise on the track.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
