Some runs in the new car

Got a couple of videos of the Mustang at the drag strip the other day.
Completely stock. running good year mud and snow tires. Has gone as quick as 13.49@101

The main reason I pick auto's is that i bracket race. It is hard to beat an auto in the consitancy department. I love driving sticks but for what i use my car for the most is Bracket racing. If I was doing heads up racing all the time, autocrossing or road racing i Would be driving something with a liberty shifter. Those things are sexy. Plus My wife can not drive a stick, and I am super lazy.

nice. couldnt get mine down that much, needs more driver mod.

If the gears look clean when they come out shoot me a PM. I'd buy them. I do a lot of highway driving so the 3.31's would be a nice upgrade without killing my mileage

For a street car, I like a manual. For a dedicated drag car, I like an auto. You just can't beat the consistency of an auto.
