What was awesome about that video? The fact that the guy ran a 13.5@107mph in a car capable of high 11s/low 12s, or how he hit the limiter hard enough to lurch forward on "better" run the second time around? Horrible video. Amazing car. I can't wait to see a white one on the road.

What's awesome about the video, for me at least, is seeing a novice in that fantastic car. It felt more personal and therefore cool.

Well, this video also verifies what I suspect will be the case when the first owners take possession of their cars and hit the local dragstrips. You will have some people hitting high-11's in stock trim and others in the 13's. Take a guess which times the Mustang fans will be quoting when they post about the ZL1? I'm going to guess the average driver is going to be able to manage mid-12's in this car in stock form at the dragstrip.

And with Drag radials.... OR better, a set of slick? What time? 11.75 / 120 trap?

rookie drivers lol
I can honestly say ill never use the launch control. Its alright for new drag racers but anyone with 1/4mile experience will use there feet for gas and clutch modulation for best at that moment launch, which will never be replicated by computers.

The car sounds amazing tho.

Never say never....won't it be fun to test yourself against the car now and again?
