Went out on a cruise over to the local In-n-out. Small baby races but I would have pulled them even harder if it was a whole race. Sorry no vids, it's not cool risking my friends lives.

96' Saleen Mustang( PI intake, bbk throttle body, CAI, x pipe, sct tune). He started in 2nd while I started in 3rd, he kept up for a second then I proceed initiate freight training him and let off. He then proceeded to flip me off.

05'-09' 3V GT(stock I think but had cool body). 50 roll, he started in 2nd and again I started in 3rd, I was brake boosting waiting for the honks. Third honk and I just start pulling. He said he never went into 3rd.

Nothing too cool but races none the less.

One more from the other day. 3.8 V6 Mustang from a dig. We launch and I spin and then I miss second (my shifter linkage was too short so the 2,4,R gears were hard to get into). As soon as i'm done spinning and swerving left to right I start pulling hard and then a wild stop light appears...

It's an accomplishment when your car rolled off the showroom floor running 18's.

You are on the wrong site brah, these people will still hate you even if you run 10s.

Nice puppy kicking. Your car is a beast and you should find some real races.

the bad part is the 6cyl mustang got out on him and he got nervous and missed 2nd....

No, it was my first drive out after having having to make new engine mounts, tranny mounts, intermediate shaft relocator mount, and a clutch to hydro tranny bracket so obviously things don't work out the first time.

I can't just order things from a catalog like you can for your car pony boy.

It's tougher making a 4cyl fast than it is a V8 and its less expensive to boot. Good job and keep building. I like how people hate on a vehicle if its not a V8. Especially the cocky 5th Gen owners.

Nice kills. Say what you want, but i'd love to destroy v8's in a Festiva. Would be hilarious seeing everybody get butt hurt all the time.

There is one rolling around my area, I think it's a 2.8 escort gt swap and boosted, 8 to 10 psi, and that little shit is fast, good kill and keep up the work, I'm always impressed by a car like that!
