Boatinbill: Not to be rude I greatly doubt that any Mustang even the Cobras and the few 500 made Cobras R's will ever beat a Corvette or ZO6 Corvette from the factory showroom.
I have a 99' Pontiac Ram Air Trans Am WS6 package with only 3648.2 miles on it I've taken it to Norwalk race way park in Norwalk OH. I heve only run 10 passes, 5 in Spring 5 in the Fall. My best ET. has been a 12.687 backed up by a 12.692 in the Spring and a 12.662 backed up by a 12.671 all untouched and off the showroom floor. BTW it is also an automatic with the 4l60 transmission. I will not touch the car due to warrenty and of the fact that the 99' model year was supposed to be the last yeay of production , GM only made 7,678 Trans Ams/Ram air WS6 Trans Ams and 30th Ann. Ram Air WS6 Trans Ams either hard tops, T-tops and Conv.
Not to rain on anybodies party I'd like to see the info from where ever. And see what you run down the strip yourself?? I've got my dial in slips
