It's apples and oranges, you can get a WS6 Formula too. The main difference between the formula and the TA is all the extra weight from the ground effects. Oh and the formula is faster

You're absolutely right! Plus, the WS-6 is more exclusive, especially the 96-98 models, after that, production shot up.

You can get a WS6 formula.

Trans Am Vs. Formula:

Foglights, different front clip, side skirts, different rear clip, different tailight center piece.

WS6 Vs. Non WS6:

17" rims 275 tires on all 4 corners, bigger sway bars, hood/ramair, rear badge, exhaust, springs, ... more?
WS6 Formula:

WS6 Trans Am:
