That same night after my first 3 races.. I'm trying to head home cause I ended up pretty far away after all my high speed racing on the highway. I exit off the high way and see a lot of cars in a parking lot.. so I figure I guess I'll just stop in and see what they're up to. Basically it turns out these guys get together late at night and show of their cars, and some of them go drag race at various spots for the heck of it. So this pretty cool dude walks up to me and starts chatting me up about my car.. and tell me he's driving a '01 Mustang GT, with gears, exhaust, intake and some other junk.. and how he always wanted to race a 350.. well I say hey sure.. why not.. we can do that. I admitted that I'd probably lose since he ran a 13.74 at the track.. but I'm no slouch.

So he takes me out to a pretty sweet spot at O'hare airport where its basically 3 lanes of straight long road with NOONE around because its near the rental car lots that are all closed. This Mustang looks MENACING with HUGE rear tires and sounding like a beast from hell.. We line it up as he 'warms up' his tires by doing this humungous burn out... I know I have no chance but hey, lets do this... Light turns green and we go I get about a half car jump maybe before he hooks up.. as I slam second I peel a bit as he hooks it immediately and pulls on me.. I'm at his back bumper by the time I hit 3rd.. as he pulls a bit more till we let off at about 90-100 mph or so.. All in all I was back about a car or so.. so it wasn't as bad as I thought it would..

The guy was real cool about it and told me to come by there again somenight. His car was actually a sweet lookin stang.. real low, huge wheels and sounded mean as hell... real mean. One of those cars that just intimidates u by just driving behind it!

Static your car looks great, now how bout that greddy turbo kit? Yeah your car is capable of low 14's. If he claims he's in the high 13's which also includes some puffery I bet on his part, yeah one car length is about right. If he has gears, they hurt the GT's in terms of top speed. Just cause they bark, don't mean they bite.

depending on gear selection and traction, that mod list of coudl easily do low 13's with a good driver. the new GT's do bite.

static,

nice race bro, those 350's have always made me drool at their all around performance. so when you coming back to this side of the country to visit? I gotta show you the Talon.

I've never had a problem with a NA GT 99+, slasherX, you give too much respect to Mustangs. :gap:

I give respect where respect is due.

Most simply don't know enough about Mustangs to hold my jock in knowledge about them, or what they can do...therefore, "all mustang's are slow"

yes, I still have the V6 mustang..it's been my daily while I've been working on the Talon...Got a 15.1 out of it spinning to the 330ft mark..after that, the tracks closed, and I lost interest.

Picked up the Talon 2 weeks ago for cheap, and it's run 12's before me...I'm just tying up some loose ends before I add a timeslip to my own collection.
