The main point is the s550 and s650 look to be the same weight and we know they are the same gearing. So it most likely should be a little bit faster no matter the transmission simple as that.
I think people were expecting it to be faster than a 2010 Camaro SS M6 (111 mph) or a 2011 Mustang GT M6 (110.6 mph).Squabbling over tenths of a second and a 1mph trap delta is like the cornerstone of forum discussion
What's puzzling to me is... what was everyone expecting? Same gearing, same overall tire footprint and compound class, 8% peak power difference, 2% peak torque difference, same basic chassis with a <100lb difference in curb weight
Testing conditions and driver capability would make a bigger difference
Yeah it will be no doubt. It will be very comparable to a 2018+ S550 with a little more weight and a little more horsepower. The laws of physics still apply, and magazine numbers differ from rag to rag.I think people were expecting it to be faster than a 2010 Camaro SS M6 (111 mph) or a 2011 Mustang GT M6 (110.6 mph).
Do you just want some unreliable numbers or is this some sort of wishful thinking?That's what I'm saying, putting final judgement into this test is just setting yourself up for disappointment. 7th gen should be very similar if not a little better in the quarter mile and 0-60 than the previous gen, as we've seen with other reviewers. One subpar review from them and everyone starts getting their panties in a bunch lol. I mean just above someone said the Ecoboost is close to the GT and that's just blasphemy because we all know that's not true. It's just like the steering issue with Throttle House. I think we're all being or prepared to be very critical on the car and we haven't even gotten real testing for the car yet. It's just a first drive.
Anybody trusted he wasn't downhill??? xDStangMode got some interesting times here:
It's amusing how many people are blaming the car vs the actual drivers and setups in this "review". As we said, Stangmode got it down to 3.8 with the A10 which means the car is still plenty potent and powerful. We all know the manual is slower, but for it to be a full second slower proves to be more of a skill issue than anything else. Let's wait and see true instrument testing from other reviewers before we put all our eggs in "Edmunds".
Embarrassingly slow. I had a 2015 MT that ran 12.60's. My 2019 AT ran 12.50's when I got it and runs 12.13 with a tune. Sounds like this is a step backwards even with more HP.Here are the Edmunds track test numbers and they are as slow as expected:
GT 0-60 in 4.8
1/4 mile in 12.7, which is decent.
0-60 in 5.6
1/4 mile in 14.2
here is the video:
I think those numbers are far off some speculated 3.6 or 3.9 seconds and I don't think the DH will be any close to that... My guess is 4.1 if we're lucky.
