YES!!! Beat the 2013 Mustang

Went to the track Friday night and met this really nice guy named Jay. Owner of a 2013 stock V6 Mustang. We immediately hit it off and arranged it so we would be racing head to head each time we raced. I'm a very experienced 1/4 racer, having 5+ years experience. Mostly with much faster cars than my 2013 V6 Camaro. The races were EXTREMELY close. I'm talking inches. But I won all three. Posting a 14.1, 14.2 and a 14 flat. The feeling was amazing. You always want to win, but to beat the Mustang is the icing on the cake.

That's cool, congrats! It's strange hearing of a V-6 Camaro posting times that are comparable to the muscle cars from the good ol days.

Agreed. Congrats again. My neighbor has a 2013 v6 California mustang. I helped him install some caliper covers the other day, while doing so we were talking about the comparison in hp and who might win in a race. Maybe one day.

The latest Camaro V6 (stock) is rated at 2 less HP than the base configuration of the awesome 396 c.i. hogs of the 60s-70s (323 vs. 325). Torque may be a different story but these new V6s are very impressive.

Congrats, OP.

Thanks guys. I know it sounds gay. But reading all your responses makes me feel even more proud about it. All three races were nose to nose. But I won three for the Camaro 5 team.

Great, but don't get cocky. There is always someone a bit better.

What were his times? The v6 cars, just like the V8 counterparts, are a driver's race. Good job.

Congrats!

Just curious what if any mods you have done on your car? if it is stock, you should post your time slips up in the V6 1/4 mile thread here, as you'd be the the fastest stock time.

If you aren't stock, thats great too, as a 14 flat in a lightly modded V6 is still worth being proud of.

Full bolt on V6s in great air and elevation are seeing upper 13s or so. In bad air or elevation most never break 14.

Congrats. Keep up the rivalry. Maybe he'll mod and beat you, then you'll come back and do the same.
