You should get a 50 shot before you race him, then you might have a chance. Other than that hope he falls asleep on the light for at least 2 seconds. Good luck though

you would probably be able to hang with a v6 stang, but i agree with jerryzx3. get some nitrous and a window switch kit and then you could prolly hang with the v8.

His pony would have a foucs lunch. You would need some serious mods to hang with a late model GT.

you would need even more mods to "hang" with a late 80's early 90's GT...

you wanna hang with a mustang GT? simple, just get a tow chain, attach in to your zx3's frame then attach the other end to the frame of the mustang. make sure he doesnt see you.

whne the light turns green, you will keep up with him. you will not beat him, but you will 'hang' with the mustang.
