I talked to a guy one night at a bar in Ellicott City, MD. He said that he has a Cobra, and that the weight ratio front to back is 50-50 on the M3, where the Camero and Mustang are 60-40. So where the other cars can really move off the line, we would lose them on the back roads as the car handles better. He also said the Cobra is 50-50.

BTW, I was rolling down 95N between 195 and 695 right around dusk. There was a bit of traffic, and I was in the far right lane. I saw someone in a non-police car weaving in and out of traffic behind me, and of course ended up on my ass. SO I dropped it into 3rd and stabbed it, then 4th to 5th. I basically lost him. I have a JC Chip and a K&N. He was definitely trying. So I slid over to the far left, and I was flying. I let off the gas as I was coming up on the left lane which puts you on 695. So as I was slowing, I saw him come across all 4 and up behind me. I had my blinker on and very slowly moved over to the exit. I could tell he was pissed cause he wanted to pass me and the next lane had a car in it. So as I took the exit, this purple ugly ass Mustand with this big gay spoiler buzzes on by, and the dude spit a loogie out the window! (He didn't hit me, I think it blew back on his car). Pretty funny! Like you said, all I got was a rush, and it was pretty dumb as you are risking lives. Ok, so next time I will sit there and let him feel cool by blowing past me. Or, maybe I won't! ;^)
