I'm using iPhone 7 and of iPad and it says the file is too big to attach?gi figure...
It would be hard to compare SRT to GT 500 as a SRT was an auto...
A few things would come to mind:
Besides the obvious that SRT is bigger and heavier the low end torque is amazing
SRT is not faster but it felt like you get faster 0 to 60
Surprisingly suspension felt a little stiffer which I liked better,I'm going to replace it with Ford Racing Handling...
My wife's 08 Shelby GT is stiffer than my GT 500 and I hope tho get the same feeling on my car...
392 is all motor so from 2 nd or 3 rd Shelby accelerating better...
Overall as a daily driver Shelby gives more pleasure to drive with an exemption that ones in a while in stop and go you kind of wishing for an automatic...
