Also did some "extra" research - check out that numbers on a Factory Five Cobra kit car using all stock suspension and engine from a 87-93 Mustang GT (no 347 stroker, independent rear suspension, or Brembo brakes here):

Performance:
0-60 mph 4.7 sec
0 - 100 mph 12.9 sec
1/4 mile 13.2@ 103mph
Fuel MPG 20/24
Lateral Acceleration .99G
Braking 60 - 0 121 Ft

Almost the same through the skids and almost the same quarter mile time as cars costing twice as much, plus you get to build it in your garage

60mph-0mph distances

2010 Mustang GT - 108 ft.
2009 Challenger R/T - 135 ft.
2009 Ram R/T - 135 ft.

Ironic that they didn't test the GT500 or SRT-8 during this comparison. Nice job MotorTrend.com...
I guess the Ram isn't close to the Camaro's braking numbers, nice find.
