So onto the race I was heading back home from the scene and I'm at a stop light and I hear this bad ass rumble on side of me and I look to my right and its a ornage and black mach 1(manual) now I don't know if it was modded but the exhaust sounded very good it may have been stock but just like my self he has temp dealer tags so he had just purchased the car somtime ago, well I look at my gf in the passenger seat who has a stock 350z and has had a run in with a mach 1 and lets just it wasn't pretty lol, she is looking at me like this will be a tough race were rolling in first gear I ammediatley look down for that tcs button and turn that thing off. We are rolling at about 10-20mph from the light when the guy looks at me and nods his head forward like lets go so I'm ready he says 3 honks we take off even, I immediatley pull threw first I have him by a bumper, threw second he's at my rear bumper then by third I could see him pulling back to my passenger door and I'm in disbelife that he's hanging so close but that's were he stayed at my passenger door until we shut down at about 95 or 100ish.....we slow to match eachothers speed and we come to a red light(run 2) he's ready to launch and so am I I'm on the brake and letting it rev, it hits green and he spins a little but I'm instantly off because I have nitto drs and I'm an auto and he's a stick, well he spins and little and I hook I pull about a car from the dig by 2nd he's pulling back up by third I'm pulling away until we shut down we get to another light he rolls down the window and we exchange comments I say that's a nice mach and he replys that's a badass t/a and asks me if its stock I reply yes and he says his has a bassani exhaust or somthing like that and that he has never ran an ws6 and was pleased that his car hung so close he was a cool guy about the race we exchanged numbers to run at the track in the future and we went our seprate ways as im headed back to my house my gf says that was close your car has to have atleast 400hp and I say no its just an ls1 she smiles and says I thought he was going to beat you and I reply so did I for a second. All and all a good race and just making me have more respect for the machs now, don't underestimate them at all they are very quick from 0-90, the races took place late at night and there were no cars out on the road now I know people are going to say no way an a4 beat a manual mach but the a4 does pack a kick to.
    to add, u had a passanger in the car he did not i assume. so that would have been another half length..

    good kill...
    ls1 TA > mach1, stock vs stock they may be launching very close but on 1/4 I've seen Mach1 do on average .2 less than ls1 TA. They can be nicely moded as well so it is a driver's race stock vs stock, very close... .. and I'm talking
    the 98-00 ta vs mach1,, the ws6 01-02 is a different story since it's got 10-15rwhp more than 98-00 so there's a much less chance for Mach1 to hang with WS6.
    If I was a Ford fan, I'd get a Cobra 03/04, that's a different beast caliber

    I'm not quite sure if it was that bad of a kill for you. because my bestfriend has an 03 mach 1 with 6,000 miles on it. no thats not a typo. We went at all it all the time and i had a M6 Ws6 and it was defintely a drivers race. I usually did when but it was only by about a bumper.

    good race though.

    Mach 1's are defintely nice. My friends get mistaken for a v6 ALL the time. which makes for good racing .

    I read it on the Ford website a while ago. Basically said the 5 speeds come with the forged crank and the auto does not. Not explaination was given though.

    I've heard the same thing also. Thats why generaly standard mach's run half second to a full second faster then the automatic mach 1's.

    Most people on here dog out the a4. Mine kicks butt ! No disrespect to the m6 I would like to have it in mine but truth is the m6's only real advantage is in the curves, BUT with a skilled driver ( like myself of couse) lol I can drive a auto like a stick in the curves Also I dont have to change gears all the time. Changing gears in heavy traffic does get old (well not unless you are really young lol)

    +1, agreed,.. I have A4 too,, also I did 3.73 gears and plan on 3200 stall. so at that point A4 is very nice. but when I first got the car, for a while depending from what speed I'd start the street race, I would drop it in 3rd if I was doing 70mi/hr or 2nd upto 45-50mi/hr.. then the car would rev much faster to 5k rpm then push the thanny from 3rd to D and so forth.
    that would be my equivalent to M6 before the 3.73 gears in my A4. now with the 3.73 gears and LS1Edit tune to change the shift points it is very nice.,

    There's nothing wrong with the A4 if stalled and built, but I wouldn't know what to do with my left foot and right hand. Not to mention I'd get bored driving. It be a bit more tolerable if they were an auto stick or paddle shifter setup. The A4 just kills the fun factor for daily driving.

    The clutch (stock) is so easy and light I don't mind it. I've been doing about 20min stop and go bumper to bumper lately. I'd rather have the A4 for the track though!
