Default Raced a new 5.0

Well today on my way to Dallas I ran against a new mustang 5.0. I think it was a special one because I believe it had perhaps a factory body kid and upgraded rims with red centercaps ( looked really good) well he first pulled up beside me
Ad we did a couple quick runs and he got me both of these times by at least a couple cars.
Then we did a few more and he absolutely killed me ( (. 3-4 cars) my mods are in the sig. What do you all think??

if he had been all stock you win probably. he was tuned at least IMO.


2011GT's are harder for newbie to drive. the next one you run into you'll kill. driving them is everything. just the way it is. i ran a ws6 and had results like you describe.

Maybe u gotta drive your car harder. I haven't had a problem with them, but I drive the crap out my car. Mustang wasn't stock either I'll tell u that. A bolt on LS1 would tare it up. And I would mind having one.... Not my style of a car at all.... Never found the mustang attractive IMO

If the Mustang was stock then I'd think it'd be very close or you would be ahead. I'm guessing he had a couple things done. It doesn't take much with those new GT's. Good death!

No shame. You guys can debate this for a month but since it's just a random street encounter, you'll never know the mods and anyone who is willing to run that many times on the street is also willing to mod it.

If the GT was stock, you should have been running right with him with your mods, Hp/Trq and weight advantage (not much..but something).

He must have had some stuff done. Exhaust (Cat-Back and midpipe) and tune puts them above 400rhp.

Don't worry though..you have an LS1 motor. Cam only you will be right there..Heads and cam you will be passing him..shot of NOS on top of that and its "good night".

There is a tough new kid on the block..time to step it up. Just look at it like that.

I am in the same boat as you... might be time for me to do an Eaton swap.
