That's pretty disappointing. Can't wait until we see members start posting times.

Yea, that 0-60 was crap. Even the mags got better times. I bet he went a lil slow on purpose. Think about it... they're trying to sell upgrades. It benefits them to have a bigger "increase".

I don't know this guy? Is he independent? Or is he a tuner who's going to "dog it" in the stock runs so when he starts modding it that the performance increase is made much better when he drives it well?

It will be interesting to see what real people can do with this .. I'm not to worried about the 13.6 as w/ the 2.3 60' time as usually 1 on the little end is worth 2 on the top end .. so a 2.0 would come in around 13.0 .. I'm more worried about the 108mph .. seems very low for the manual ..

I agree that the car is quite a bit quicker than that. That is the slowest time that I have yet by anyone.

Well, there's a diffrence. If a Mustang can run 13.3 with a 2.0 60' time and a Camaro can run 13.3 with 2.3 60' time they are not equally as fast. It's not because we don't like Mustnags. Some peolpe on this board think the Camaro can hang with the GT500 becuase one magizine ran a crappy 1/4 mile time. It goes both ways, unfortunately.

From what I've read about Hennessey Performance and some of the posts I've seen on other boards from the owner I trust anything they claim or advertise. Like someone already said this run may have been sandbagged for a reason.

i didnt say they were equal the camaro is faster, but as soon as someone runs a slow time in a mustang it gets posted as if thats all the mustang can do. no matter how horrible the driver was.

exactly... of course they're going to get a crappy stock time... they're not trying to get a good stock timeslip... they're trying to make themselves look better when they modify it... and, btw, this is a trick that Saleen and Hennessey are both guilty of doing

Definitely didn't push the car. Launch was poor...shifts were slow and it looks like premature. Just lost a little respect for Hennessey Performance.

Well... I would want to know how much the broke it in first too.

If they did that right off the truck that's not not a proper way to get numbers.

They should improve after a few 1000 miles.

And don't take that advice that's the LAST thing you want to do with a 1 day old car.

Unless your rich or a company and don't care about the longevity of the vehicle.

I think this is about what an average driver will run at the track with this car. Nothing out of the ordinary really.
