    1998 Trans Am WS6 'Vert

    No Mustang has challenged me when I'm driving my T/A, so no street stories to tell. However, I've embarrassed several un-suspecting Stangs w/ my Dak R/T. Best one was one of the two times I was at Muncie. A couple of guys were walking the staging lanes and I overheard one of them say, "Those damn R/Ts......(uninteligable)" as they walked past my truck. I later realized they were driving an older 5.0 Stang a few positions behind me. At first I didn't understand because 5.0s were supposedly FAST, right? But then I knew their car must have been basically stock as I returned to the staging lanes after a 15.1 run to see them (he, it, not sure who drove) run a 15.3 in that 'stang. LOL.

    Unless it's a Cobra, I wouldn't waste my time.

    96-98 GT with full bolt ons -- I killed it by 3 maybe 4 cars in the 1/8 mile

    07 Shelby GT (not GT500) ---I beat him by 2 car in 1/8th

    that is the only 'Stang races thus far.

    Killed a 2001 Cobra with my 2001 T/A. Killed a 97ish Cobra SN95 style when I had my 95 T/A. Killed a 90ish 5.0 GT when I had a 2002 S2000. Killed a Saleen S281 SN95 style with my 75 chevy truck. That one I kinda cheated on. I had my front drive shaft off because it was a full time 4 wheel drive, and I threw it into 4 low range and let it rip off a red light, maxed out all 3 gears by the time I hit about 40mph and pulled the kid good. I turned off right after that. I killed the chain in the transfer case, but I won so it was worth it. That's the only ones I remember racing so far.

    I haven't raced a 2005+ but I did drive a few and I wouldn't have any worries about racing them. From what I hear they are not much of a problem to beat.

    I've beat the 07 Shelby GT (supposidly has 325 hp instead of 300 hp like the normal GT) -- 1/8 mile I had 2 cars on him.

    So our cars if driven equally - will win every time!

    Depends on the driver and the tranny. The '05+ GT's aren't slouches around here but they aren't quite as fast as a bone stock LS1 F-body. They have a speed limiter that kicks in around 120 if I remember correctly. To get that turned off you have to call Ford directly and get a special code to enter into the system (not sure if the forum guys have it but they probably do). Anything above a GT in that year group and you'll have yourself a hell of a race. I watched a buddy of mine in an '01 M6 WS6 lose to a Stage 1 Saleen Stang. Theres a new Stage 3 thats been running around recently that I don't even want to be next to at a light.

    Just took one three times on the way home tonight. We hit three different lights in 2 miles. He was flooring it and I wasn't even trying. It was a GT, 04, I think. Then I was waiting to turn of and he beeped a few times at me and couldn't tell if he was just waiving bye or flipping me off. Oh well, I won.

    GT's '04 and older are absolute garbage stock. They put something like 220 or less to the wheels. Its like the equivalent to a V6 Fbody.

    Yeah my fiend has a 05 Mustang and was talking sh**. I beat him by about 2 car lengths in the 1/4. he now wonders why he spent almost 30 grand on a car that is slower, uglier, and more expensive then my T/A.

    uglier?--- that implies the fbodies are ugly.

    A stage 1 Saleen is just a stang with wheels, exhaust and a body kit. No performance mods other than a cat back. Just heavier and slower, but they may look a bit nicer. They should be beat no problem.

    I knew that would get somebody worked up! Some of them do look nice. It's mainly the verts that I don't like. Well I don't really like the look of vert T/A's either.
