It was a grabber blue mustang and it was a Manual. He said he had gears on it and LCA's. I think he had drag radials on also. I don't know his name, I am pretty bad at names. Was a cool Mustang owner though.

Yeah, the driver looks like him too, was a pretty young guy. I know he wanted to hear my wife's Borla's, but he might go deaf if he hears her Borla ATAK with BBK Headers now.

I also just ordered my wife some BMR Lower Control Arms and myself some BMR Trailing Arms. Now we just need some tires that can hook better.

Good job on the LCA's. Let her try practicing leaving off of idle, 1500, 1800, & 2000rpm. One of those will produce a decent 60' time. Maybe a 2.0x. She should drop another 10th or two.

I installed my trailing arms while my wife was at bingo then when she got home she wanted to install hers. Found out you can not install the new ones while the car is on ramps, it has to be on jacks or you can't move the axle. We are going to take the cars for a joy ride tomorrow to see if they squeek.

She did get dirty though, I broke the torque on the bolts and she took them off. Next weekend we go to the track if the weather holds out.

Went to the track today and we were doing pretty well till the track got crowded and we were waiting a long time between runs. Last runs my car did not have top end power any more, I'll see if I can find a way to correct that. Track had not been used in 3 months and we were the first ones down it. They kept trying to get rubber built back into the track, was taking forever. Wife did improve her 60' a little bit, think a few more tweaks and we can get it lower.

I tried to make the video a little better this time. Enjoy.

Saw the part with us in it. Wife had a good day today, think a few more tweaks and we can get her times down further. Hope your friend realized we were a married couple racing each other.

And you ran some good times, so looks like practice is helping you.

Cool videos guys! Magnum I see you ran a 14.6. Is that one of your best times? I thought most of your others were high 14s to low 15s.

One of them, best is 14.5. Still can't get a good launch on the car and can't figure out why I'm not getting the top end power.

I see what your saying. In one of your first vids (or maybe THE first vid) you actually pull on the Mustang in the top end, but towards the end it appears you are losing steam.

Couple things come to mind, but not sure either are correct.

One, your car is heat soaking after a few runs and your car is pulling timing. I'd say that is a likely culprit of robbing some power.

Maybe the tune isn't perfect, and once you're hitting 3rd the AFR is a bit off, which is robbing your of some power. I've heard of something like this happening before, but I think that was probably with an FI setup.

I'm going to try to remember to bring my laptop and trifecta cable with me next time. Datalog the 2nd run then maybe one of the last runs. You are probably right that my afr is screwed up for 3rd, I did all my datalogs in 2nd.

We may go back to the track while we are still moving, I can't have losing to a mustang over my head.

14.5 is good! The best run for that stock auto Camaro V6 was the 15.0 run against me if I recall correctly.

My friend ran 14.4 in his stage 1 2011 wrx with intake and exhaust(with 1.9 60 foot) on that track too, if that gives you perspective.

I'm just trying to figure out ways to get better right now. I did notice though that when my wife was leaving today and I was behind her in the Mazda, her Mustang had water spitting out of the exhaust when she was on the throttle. Got home and drilled a weep hole in the Borla's and there was alot of water that came out (its recommended on the Mustang forums). Don't know if the water would have made a difference in her speed, but her exhaust should sound better.

Starting to wonder if I should do the same to my ARK DT-S, I saw on my GoPro video that when I did a half-ass burnout I had mist coming out of my exhaust.

Won't be able to race for a little bit now, the gas station that my wife filled up at was out of 91, she had to put 87 in it. Switched the tune out to 87 Street (was at 91 hybrid) so we don't damage her motor.

I also looked at my wife's 60' times, she showed improvement in that area.
