A Corvette C6 ZR1 would smoke a Ford GT. The Mustang's Chevrolet rival is the Camaro.

Mustangs are only good at going fast? Funny how the gt350R beat a Ferrari 458 Italia on nurburgring and the z28 by over 5 seconds. The gtr is pathetic. They gotta twin turbo an altima to make it take off fast. Stay in your lane and do your research before u judge. The 302 wasn't made to compete with gtrs it was made to compete with the camaro which it does very well. Like all you. Chevy fanboys who put mustangs against corvettes but don't have the nerve to call out a Ford gt.

The Boss302 Laguna Seca is one of the most rewarding track ready muscle cars you can drive. Sits nice next to my Porsche 911 C2S (my grocery getter).

People stop with the fowel language and the condescending pros.

A 2012 boss 302 LS pulled a 7:38:35 at N'ring last wednesday. Driver: Berget kinzer (yes a girl) Not even a full second behind the Z-28 which has more HP and traction nanny suspension garbage then any other car out there.

So little boys hush get in your KIAs and get to work ....late for the BK window.

Laguna Seca Time is OBVIOUSLY not at all representative of what the car can do so why put it up? I could have sworn this car posted a 1:39-1:40 or ~ 1/2 sec off the Laguna Seca version.

If you think the laptime is fake, take it up with Motor Trend.

@JC yeah, I haven't seen any new lap times to add. I am really looking forward to seeing how well the Boss does at VIR.


User avatar

JC  7y ago

So after so many months, we have no lap times from any other tracks?
IE: VIR, Willows..
....sounds fishy....


User avatar

Viking  7y ago

This page is absolutely perfect now. Thanks. :)

Lest someone think otherwise, I do consider the Bedford Autodrome West Circuit lap time to be legitimate. The EVO magazine article was well written as well. I just think that they are must better at writing than driving. :)

I just added the 12.3 second quarter mile at 115.8 mph from the Motor Trend test. Here is the link http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/coupes/1102_2012_ford_mustang_boss_302_test/

@Dirtdickler Yep, you should definitely register. It makes everything easier, and gives a consistent spelling for your nickname. :)

Hey Dirt,

It's a bug. You can still submit performance figure if you register and log in. Then you won't be asked for verification code anywhere.

Just remember - performance data without proper reference is removed without any consideration.


User avatar

Dirtdickler  7y ago

When you try to "add performance figure" it ask for "varification" of an unreadable symbol of some sorts.... WTF is this all about??

Anybody else try to "add performance figure" and not be able to due to that unreadable "verification" symbol or whatever the hell that is??

If you thought the "verification code" here is sometimes unreadable the one in the "add performance figure" is impossible.. What's the point in that?


User avatar

Dirtdickler  7y ago

Yeah the correct 1/4 mile is: 12.3@115.8mph.

I also looked at EVOs on course speeds which ranged from 37 mph to roughly 109 mph. This means that the Bedford Autodrome course is a bit faster than the fastest autocross courses that I competed on. I would use third and fourth gears only. The Mustangs have enough torque that downshifting to second gear would just be a waste of time. I am absolutely certain that I would beat their best time in the Boss 302 by at least four seconds. Yeah, I might be bragging, but also I am confident enough to lay money on it.

This EVO evaluation; thinking the Boss had too much oversteer, and the M3 has balanced handling; contrasts sharply with the pro-Racer Randy Pobst observation that the Mustangs are tuned for balanced handling, and the M3 has too much understeer. I believe that Pobst is correct, the M3 is tuned to have a bit of understeer in order to make it more comfortable for less skilled drivers, while the new Mustangs are daringly neutral and thus more pleasing for more experienced competition drivers. The bottom line is that a Boss 302 is faster on a track with experienced competition drivers, but the M3 provides enough safe understeer to get the better time with less skilled drivers. I guess that I fall into the former category because of my SCCA competition experience.

I finally read the EVO comparison test of the BMW M3, Mercedes C63 AMG, Audi RS5, and Mustang Boss 302. It was very well written. However, I noted the problems they had with the Boss Mustang. They didn't like the brake dive and thought it made the turn in less precise. They didn't seem to find as much grip as expected, and thought it had too much oversteer in mid speed corners. This last observation is the most important. It contrasts with their belief that the M3 showed perfect balance.

The quarter mile is 12.3 seconds according to Motor Trend. Here is the link http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/coupes/1102_2012_ford_mustang_boss_302_test/

Overall this is still a great web site, and I am sure it is not easy to moderate. All the current moderators probably are busy with jobs and other activities, so I don't expect instant changes. I also don't know how hard it is to change things on a car page. I am good at research and analysis, not web site design. :)


User avatar

Viking  7y ago

I will give credit to the moderators for requiring proper document evidence, ie. published magazine figures. If I were a moderator though, I would be completely neutral and try to make sure all the cars information was as accurate as possible without bias. The evidence suggests that some bias might currently exist.
