    I don't know man, a 14.3 is not very impressive esp. seeing that he has a couple mods to begin with. Good kill nonetheless. What is the elevation where you were racing?

    If the track you raced at has a website they probably list it on there.

    Good kill- I would be completely suprised if the outcome was different.

    LS1 much stronger motor than fords 4.6 (NA)

    337ft.....You could hit a 13flat no problem at that alt, if not you have some unknown issues going on.....14.3 is a very slow time and not very impressive imo.

    I don't race at the track at all.... but i hate the new GT's and pretty much all of them unless they're heavily modded. They look "OK" but it's been 10 years and they're still slower than an ls1. not to mention that i see at least 12 mustangs per day

    That's because they didn't stop building them like GM stopped building F bodies! Compared to F bodies, they look great.

    I think a 1998-2002 WS6 looks much better than that thing they call a S197 GT.

    no mustangs looks as agressive as a ta and to see a ta pull throught the tire smoke of a burn out at the track with just the fog lights on makes me tingle in funny places

    Mustangs are behind the times, no matter how they look. There's V6's now making 300+hp now while the GT still makes only 300 w/ a V8....kinda lame.

    Are you serious?? I'm not saying they look like crap, but i just dont like mustangs especially GT's. One reason why they don't look that great is cuz there are so many of them on the streets. Compared to an LS1 F body, they look worse

    i dont like the new body style personally somethnig about that backseat window bothers me but cover that and it looks ok but that being said i am impressed with how it drives and shifts very fast in an auto all in all a nice car compare ride comfort to fbody ford wins but put them on a track ill take a fbody all day for the trill factor

    I have yet to see one in person match the magazine's claim of 13.5 seconds in the quarter for an M5, and 13.6 for an A5. Most I see are in the high 13's to low 14's.

    Thumbs up better driver

    ok now we can tell the truth! I won 4 out of 5 times.
    You had wheel spin one time bad and ran a 15.6 other wise 14.0 and 13.9 and losing. you forgot to mention bad .9 .5 reation times. I may have had a slower car by .4ths. but I have better driving skills, wait what kind of skills does it take to drive an auto!

    just don't drop the u-joint

    also never said ls1 was better motor!
