Default Turbo Festiva vs Mustangs

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.

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

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 **** is fast, good kill and keep up the work, I'm always impressed by a car like that!
