There’s a muscle-car war brewing in Detroit these days. Right as the handling-champion Z/28 goes out of production, Ford delivers a Shelby-badged suckerpunch with a flat-plane-crank V8, MR dampers, and carbon fiber wheels. Head 2 Head host Jason Cammisa takes the two through a series of challenges: first, some canyon carving to see which car is better on the road. Then, a dyno shootout: can the GT350R’s 5.2-liter Voodoo make more power than the venerable 7.0-liter LS7? And then, it’s onto Chuckwalla Valley Raceway where Jason and racecar driver Randy Pobst find out not only which one is faster around the track, but which car handles best. No muscle-car comparison test would be complete without a drag race, of course, so Cammisa lines up the cars with the help of his cousin Bob from West Virginia. This episode of Head 2 Head, presented by Tire Rack (www.tirerack.com), is the one-stop shop for everything you need to know about the latest Detroit muscle-car rivalry.

      FROM THE START you could straight up tell this dude didn’t like the camaro he was a gt350 and then putting that bum looking guy at the steering wheel of the camaro I can tell this video was so hella biased this dude was scared of pushing the camaro how are you gonna get a good lap time bro. 🤦🏼‍♂️ I’m trying to get a good opinion on which of these 2 is my next car and I get this. Im really gonna have to get a test drive in these myself..

      I don't know why people always want to have the Camaro versus the Ford mustang when the Ford mustang always wins! Then Chevrolet comes out with the Corvette that will be better than a mustang usually!!! So what of course Corvette's have bigger engines! what's amazing is a mustang with smaller engine can keep up with a Corvette!!! Corvette is in a different category! Just let that sink in! Ford makes very powerful engine!! It takes Chevrolet two cars to challenge mustang!!!

      4:34 it already wins. More power, more torque, weighs less, and costs 10k less.

      Never cared for Mustangs ,never will..... been a Camaro fan since I was 13 yrs old. As matter of fact, I learned how to drive on my brother's 1969 Camaro. This video does not prove anything to me ha ha!

      It only took for 5 decades to finally make a mustang that could go around a turn without fishtailing out of control lol

      @Vernon Price just goes to show how desperate ford is to beat chevys that they have to compair to an old gen rather than its current predicessor, the 2018 zl1 1le

      Why? That was a Camaro on the old gen 5 platform. The 2016 Camaro SS 1LE is faster around a track than the GT350, and it costs a lot less too.

      The Ls platform is the best ever and then they made the lt1 and lt2.. sorry ford... it's sad that for had to take a Ferrari style v8 to make a difference.

      How is that sad? The whole point of a company is to innovate and get better. LS platform is great, but it has it's weaknesses same as any other power plant.

      Defeats the purpose of the competition, because at that point I'd just counter by saying add x to the mustang and it'd obliterate the camaro. Anything is possible once you start modifying the vehicles so that doesn't really say anything.

      It all boils down to what you want out of your car. You want high revs and crazy cornering? GT350R. You want raw, head snapping power and a huge motor? Z/28. To each their own

      This channel supports Ford that is why they made the Camaro looks so bad. Check any other video comparison and you’ll see how much better the Camaro truly is.

      Just watch both and see how far off the banking in the z/28 compared to Shelby. Timed lap? Virtually a tie.
