Can Nitrous Help The Shelby GT350 Destroy The Drag Strip?

Drag Race

Is it faster than the Camaro SS?

We recently saw a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS sprinting down the drag strip in 10.6 seconds thanks to some nitrous. Lethal Performance’s 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang fitted the muscle car with a mid pipe, JLT intake, a tune, drag radials and a 150 shot of nitrous in the hopes of being able to beat the Camaro SS’ time. Unfortunately, the Shelby GT350 only managed to complete the quarter mile in 10.98 seconds at 125 mph, which is slower than the Camaro SS’ time. The Camaro SS was able to get a better time with less mods, so what gives?

The Shelby GT350 may be slower than the Camaro SS, but it sounds much better. Lethal Performance believes that the muscle car is capable of doing more with a better clutch and more tuning.
