Yes indeed, he was playing with you. Even if he short shifted and you hit red line I dont think you could hang with him. But if it was a V6 Stang you should be able to hang with him or maybe even take him.

Since none of your facts are straight, I highly doubt your story is either.. BS on this one.. I dont consider a 16 second car "quick" by any means..

yet another person raising the BS flag...

I raced a newer style GT (not the brand new one) at the track the very first time racing at this place and in a focus. He had a shitty launch and we were neck and neck. I actually trapped a slightly better 1/8 than him (10.86 to his 11.02). We were neck and neck until about a lil more past 1/2 way. Then he just started pulling nicely on me and ahead by about .3 seconds by the end (16.55 to his 16.2). And he sucked terribly... like me. So yeah, the third gear in a newer GT is very strong and he was a cool guy. He said it was his first time too and he was just experimenting with different launches like Jessica and I.

Ek hatch
- JDM b16 (SiRII) swap, Kaaz 1.5 way LSD, Evo2 exhaust, shorty intake, hi-flow cat, B&M 2-bend shifter, gutted, lightweight bucket CF seats, weighs in @ 2250lbs

It's all relative, when you've got a Cobra, a GT, and a TSi, of course 16 seconds doesn't seem quick. But I think "quick" is a fair term for 16 seconds, I don't think anyone called that "fast" which would surely be a stupid thing to say. But when you factor a 16 second quarter mile into the "big picture" of all the various cars and trucks out there (not just new ones, but all the cars and trucks on the road) 16 seconds isn't THAT bad, but I sure wouldn't be bragging about it either.

As for the Mustang of the original post, perhaps it was a V6 model with a dual exhaust? I was behind one getting on the freeway the other day, it was a newish V6 with a lame bodykit and a dual exhaust, it was not fast and it was blowing oil smoke out the exhaust - but when I lane-changed to the left and punched it to get around him his pride was hurt or something and he changed over right in front of me forcing me to slam on the brakes, and then proceeded to putter along without accelerating.

just a little info

well today i actually got a chance to get on it, and i found this from my car, i have no idea what rpm i am at with these speeds, i just know that my car is near the rev limit whatever factory is set at, i shift into second at 32 mph, shift into third around 50-55, about 80 going into 4th, not really sure going into 5th but i think it's around 105 and i think once i got it to 110 but my engine was screaming LOL, this is different from what i had previously said in my post, for some reason i was thinkin i was in a different gear, anyways that's it for me and my car, i'm working again and the next thing i'm getting is camshafts of focussport, dyno charts looks good on them, adds about 13 hp according to the chart.

IN THE SAME CATEGORY AS A HONDA...... AHAHAHA ur like lol your just trying to bust everyones balls here right because u cant be serious......mustang a shitty car....yeah its so shitty i mean becuase car companys keep shitty cars for 41 years....that makes sense.....im not raising the bs flag...b/c i dont have a stick so i wouldnt know what gear ud be at at 110.....but i doubt he was actually racing b/c he would of taken u out badly if he was. But if ur being serious all id like to know is where ur getting your logic from and why you think the stang is a shitty car? Its one thing to not like them.....its another to call them shitty and say they are just like a honda.
