Went to the track last night & raced a 2012 GT

Went to the track last night. Watched a new GT500 run back to back 12.2s & a 2012 GT run back to back 12.8s.

I get in line with my wife's stock 2012 SS auto & they line me up with the 5.0. I'm like great I'm going to get smoked. My reaction time was better so I actually beat the 5.0 all 3 times we ran up to the 1/8 mile or so then he passed me every time. He only beat me by 1/2 a car length or so each time so I was pretty happy. My best time was a 13.1@106.7.

My last run the track guy let me off easy & lined me up with a 2009 Mustang GT. I beat him off the line by .3 + was over 1sec quicker. Most my reaction times were .0x

Good run. Do you know if the 5.0 was modded in anyways?

We were at PIR, that was their last night of the season. My RT was ~.2 better which helped me a lot. Boy I was thinking if only I had an LS3 instead of L99.

Really like your Green Mustang. We were on our way to FORD to order a new 2013 Green Mustang GT ($6,500 off MSRP) when we stopped at Chevy to test drive a Camaro SS. Chevy ended up giving us the keys for a 24hr test drive & that did it for my wife. Once you get the feel of an IFS its hard to go back to a solid axle.

Now my wife is eyeing a green ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang but I really want to see what the new Mustang is going to be.


I didn't get to talk to the 5.0 guy that I was racing but the car looked/sounded stock. He was trapping ~111mph.
