Just when i thought that the new Mustang was a fast car, Last Thursday again another one bit the dust.
There where 2 of them, one had 1400 miles on it but also had an intake and exhaust. The other one was just like it but the exhaust was quieter.
Well the black one was the loud one, so he lines up abd tells me he is sorry in advanced that he is gonna beat the "JAPO". So i smile and put my window up.

R/T: .52 R/T: .70
1/8: 9.11 1/8: 9.19

So now im pissed because i got beat by a shit talker just because i had a shit launch. At the turn around i tell him to go again and he said no go with my brother. I'm like cool One mustang just ass good as the other, right?
So, the red one lines up and tells me its too bad i spent my money on that foreign Piece of shit.

So now im happy and start talking my own stuff, Like Built FORD SUCKS.

He tried telling me that there was something fishy about my car and that where was my NOS?

So, Another Bites the dust.

By the way does anyone know whats stock HP on these Ponys?

Shouldn't you have had an easier time beating him in the 1/8 mile track?? You have AWD and that is where you can get people is on your launching. I mean by the time other cars hook up the 1/8 mile is almost completed.

New Mustang GT's = 260hp. They run low 14's i think. You should have stomped these guys. What are you launching your car at?

Yeah, easy if you don't bog. See, the problem is that the car gets SO much traction that it will actually bog the engine if you let the rpms drop too much on the launch. :( Let the clutch out too fast and not enough gas will net you a bogged launch. Slip the clutch too much and you will spin the clutch and sit there. Fine line between all of that, if you can believe it.

yeah i can believe that. It sounds like my problem in my car. I am afraid i will spin so i let the clutch out slowly, therefore i usually bog off the line and just creep for a few feet and then i'm off. I thought that you could just tach up to 4000 and let the clutch out right away.
