just took a '13 boss down the 1/8
 
My buddy sold me my gxp to buy this boss and I made the maiden voyage lol. 9xx miles bone stock. I took it down twice with best pass of 8.35 @ 84mph. MPH was low because I hit the rev limiter twice lol. I hate the trannyshifter in it........

You beat the driver not the car. Grats on the kill.

Deki 06-20-2013 08:45 PM

Your buddy needs to learn how to drive, good kill however. You got a damn rare and awesome car. Good buy!

Bo White 06-20-2013 09:15 PM

Im the driver of the boss lol. Solo run maiden voyage. If I had some seat time in it I could probably get some 8.20s out of it on average. It wasn't a kill, just was saying for my first time in the car I think it quick for stock.

Them BOSS are beast from factory. Slap some slicks 100% stock you'll see 7.90s easy!

Bo White 06-20-2013 09:34 PM

I believe it. I've heard of guys getting consistent 8.0s on DR. Its something to get adjusted too getting out of my ls3/tr6060 and going to a coyote/Chinese tranny lol. Ford definately done their homework on the 5.0 engine. I hate how slow it revs in neutral/clutch in. Revs weak compared to the ls3, probably some nannies involved in that.

Were you using the track "tuned" key? I think theres 2 keys one has a factory aggressive tune.

Bo White 06-20-2013 10:01 PM

No. I thought that was the Laguna boss that came with the track tune key.

Nope, the key comes from Ford Racing and you buy it and have the tune installed. Gives better throttle response, different engine mapping, tighter steering, and turns on the launch control. Also enables track key idle, so it sounds like you have an aggressive cam.

Bo White 06-20-2013 10:41 PM

My car is stock except lts and intake with a tune. Fastest its been is 8.40s. The boss doesn't gave 1000 miles on it yet. I'll let my buddy know he can get the keep from ford.

Nice! Is that on any BOSS? I like the sound of that tuned key lol

Your posts are confusing.

Bo White 06-21-2013 02:37 AM

I don't see how. I said I took a boss down the 1/8 in the thread title which I did. My opening post I said that my buddy that sold me my gxp so he could buy a boss(the one I took down the strip) and I made its maiden voyage meaning I was the first to drag racing at the track. I took it down the track twice and my best pass was a 8.35 @ 84mph. I seen the first two responses seemed to misunderstand what had happened so I clarified on my second post that I was the driver of the boss and that it was a solo run meaning no one in the other lane. Added that it wasn't a kill(since I was the driver of the boss and the only car on the track).
Post 10 was just talking about my gxp mostly and that may have been confusing.
