^^^^^
+1

half of racing is driving, I beat a 2006 Z06 at the track twice, Does that make my car faster? NO Just a better driver than him, I still won, So I could brag about it but the next Z06 I come accross could and will wipe my ass all over the asphault. so I will bask in the knowledge of the win and not brag.

So, Good Kill, Bravo
you get the Awesome Driver award

hey, you got em good. i took my dads now gone 03 GT to the track awhile back, and got a 14.3 when i was a terrible driver though.

like a poster above said, run what ya brung, and that guy lost, and should be embarrassed. mods should always start with the "driver" mod.

I think he was starting to have clutch problems, cuz after i ran him and we came back you could smell clutch material.
this info should have been in the original post...you answeared your own question...no bragging rights...mustang driver cant drive...he should blow your doors off in the 1/4th

Oh, He normally does beat me. I just thought it would be good that I beat him twice.

His best run in the 1/8 is a 8.95 and mine is a 9.7, but I haven't run the 1/8 in a while, since I dialed in my launch to 3800-4200. Normally I kill him by a car or two off the line and he just flys by me further down on the track. Since these SVTF can't beat a mustangs topend in first gear or second at all, but by third I am normally pulling back on him. I have raced him on the road in about 3/4 mile and beat him by like 2-3 cars at about 130-140 mph. I have noticed his car doesn't have the top end like I thought it would.

When he gets back from his 2 week active duty I will run him a the strip again, since I have had a bit more done to my car since then.
