Im racing my camaro vs a mustang....

My girlfriends dad has a 2006 mustang v6 convertable and he is a mad ford fan and i have a 1999 camaro v6 t-tops and im a mad chevy fan. We can't see each other with out talking about for or chevys and going era by era of cars and comparing them and we have friendly arguments most are about camaros and mustangs in all eras, and finally we both wanted to settle our arguments by going to a street in the middle of nowhere and racing, all of my gf's family are ford fans and thye will be there so idon't wanna embarras my self or my camaro specialy to a mustang. ouch. anyways here are its specs mustang- convertable,automatic,2006, bone stock engine
camaro- t-tops, performance air filter, performance spark plugs, rp oil, automatic i think it has around 207-211 hp.
tho the mustang is faster stock for stock but his is a convertable and is heavier and mine is t-tops which is lighter and mine has some upgrades.
Can i pull off a win?

I think it will be close, but you will pull out the win. The six in his Mustang is a god awful engine.

Drive safe, and please try to do it on the track. I know that there are abandoned roads everywhere, but sometimes there are reasons that the roads are abandoned.

Well i been hearing that the v6 mustang runs 1/4 mile way faster than a 4th gen camaro even on this site. no matter what im racing him, i will be carfull we are just running a 1/4 mile and the road is well paved and wide. If i remember the number i think it was 6-8 seconds faster is this true?

I don't think it's that much of a gap man...maybe 2-3 seconds faster

Well I know he's only got 210/240 hp/tq so you should be neck N neck since you have around 211 tq. I just don't know how much tq you have.

I think it'll be pretty close. Your car's gotta' be close to 3400 lbs. and I'm sure he's probably another 100+ lbs. or so with that top - I don't know for sure though. It sounds more like a driver's race

Race SAFE and WIN for the love of God!!!

A stock V6 Mustang convertible? Haha I put shame to V6 mustangs in my little FWD 205hp Supercharged Cobalt.

I'd say even with your 4th Gen Camaro w mods I think you will take him.

The current gen V6 Mustangs are slow...

That I can't tell you. I don't know squat about 4th gen Camaros but from what you indicated with what you have on your V6 Camaro, I think you have a very good chance... How much does your Comaro weigh in at?

I know that a stock current gen V6 Mustang has like what 210 or 220 (crank) hp? It does 0-60 in like 6.9 seconds... Probably weighs like 3400lbs or something... IDK I'm too lazy right now to look up it's stats...

Again from a dig I raced this one V6 Mustang (coupe) and I walked him off the line... (no idea if it was a stick or auto, but I'm assuming auto) but the SS/SC stock does 0-60 in low 6's... and I raced a couple from a 40mph roll and I had like 3+ car lengths on them by the time I was probably doing 70mph...

I lost to a 350Z in my IROC, and that think was certainly much faster than the 4th gen v6's were. Unless I'm much mistaken, the mustang V6 and the camaro v6 both have 210 flywheel horsepower, but the mustang has more torque. It should weigh more though, and if you have mods and he's completely stock, you should win. It'll probably be close.

350Z's are 13's second cars stock....

Basically they are almost as quick as a current gen Mustang GT.

I was looking into getting one before I thought about the Camaro.

DON'T race on the street PLEASE... take it to a track, It isn't worth risking your life or someone elses just to prove a point. Have you ever thought what can happen out on the "street in the middle of nowhere" too many things is what. at least a dragstrip should not have any unexpected things to jump out in front of you. the track should be consistant for the total distance...

I wonder why the mods have not pulled this thread since it mentions racing on the street... that i thought was a big No No...
