Can't hang with the high HP mustangs and Camaro's, but the weight of the cars are very much the same (all around 3500). The 5 just lacks the power of the others, but makes up a good portion by having a more sophisticated and better handling suspension. It's not a bad track car, it's just that smaller cars (read: E30's) tend to perform better. Then again, they aren't exactly in the same class, so it's an apples to oranges comparison.
