Mustang GT = 30k

Say you invest 50k into each.

Possibly. I haven't seen the GTR in person yet, but that Mustang is a very nice car.

The Mustang is on 335mm Hoosier A6s at all four corners. $30k doesn't even begin to cover it.

Agreed... $30k might get you some of the drivetrain...

I'm talking stock Vs Stock. Mustang GT 30k, GTR 100k and off the show room floor the GTR is undoubtedly better. Unless you can prove other wise I have to believe that there is way less invested in the Mustang than the GTR and from that video it is just as competitive if not more.

Way less money after vehicle purchase in the GTR... actually. The GTR only has: turbos, injectors, exhaust, diff/engine coolers, coilovers, swaybars, Hoosier GT1 Cup Slicks, brake pads, APR wing, and normal race stuff (cage, seat, harness).

The Mustang definitely has a lot more than that in it. Only thing making this close is the base price difference.

The GT-R my boss co-drove/won Tire Rack's One Lap of America with this year just had an exhaust on it as far as power adders (Pretty much). Those cars are extremely impressive out of the box...probably one of the best 'super cars' for the money if you plan on racing.


And they are only like 80k new...

Decent AI mustangs can be gotten around 10-20k used. A fairly competetive AIX car will cost 40-60k 2nd hand. Huge difference what it takes to be competetive in AIX.

I understand people thinking the mustang is impressive. but let's not forget that in the Thill trim, the GTR is what - 500 lbs heavier and obviously down on power in comparison to the Mustang. Brian is a heck of a driver having competed with him on many occassions. They've developed that car right. I can't wait to see it in time attack trim here in another week...
