    We dropped pretty even,to say I was surprised would be a understatement! I was expecting to watch his headlights fade away but........ It was a gt by the way,as far as I can tell. It was the same body style as the termi's but I'm pretty sure it was a gt.

    Fell the difference in a drop to 3rd compared to 4th at 75 mph. You need da driver mod.

    Yeah, at 75mph you should have been in 3rd. I don't even shift into 4th until about 100mph when racing. 3rd would have made a world of difference. I've made the fatal mistake of underestimating another car and not downshifting...but at least you can admit the kill...

    Eh, it's an LS1 forum not a Mustang forum. I can see if he went to an SVT forum or something and said that then it might be considered "stirring the pot". But I understand where your comming from, it does get annoying when you come on here to have a civilized chat with "the other side" and certain memebrs are hard set on picking your car apart.

    To the OP good death. I raced what I thought was just a riced out Civic nothing car a while back in my father's Camaro SS m6. It turns out the guy had a T63 turbo set up on it. Good thing he couldn't get traction and I drive the Camaro like it's stolen otherwise he would have won, Lol. I always try the lower gear first in a roll race and work my way up even if it takes letting my opponent out ahead of me until I find what gear works best.

    In most cases like this the GT is juiced all t'shit, plus any number of other mods. It really is a freak occurrence. You'll get him next time champ.

    ^ but thats not on street tires.

    Also I just read about you guys going into 4th gear at 100 and 3rd gear at 75? Why is it that I can take my 2nd gear all the way to about 100ish while racing?

    Exactly, I learned from my WS6 when I owned it and my father's 99 SS that these cars will run better in the lower gears from a roll. I always grab a lower gear and ease out the clutch, if it's too much, I just go up one. It's better to spend the time finding the right gear then to wait out the wrong one in my opinion.

    Well I only been driving my M6 for almost a month now.
    I havent raced with bigger gears yet, most of my races was out of 2nd and a low roll, and I took 2nd till like around 100 and then shifted into 3rd and usually the race is over in 3rd gear at around 120ish
    So am I racing wrong or just have a different car or what?

    i believe my m6 tops out second an 72 ish 3rd at 95ish and 4th at 125ish so i think you might be cunfused unless you have different gears installed. in 6th gear at 73 i am at 1,600 rpms give or take a little on all those numbers.

    How can I find out if I got new gears? I thought mine were stock but I swear I can take 2nd gear to around 100ish before I have to shift. At when RPMs do you shift at?

    You can't be reaching 100 mph in second gear! You must be in third.

    My 3rd gear is good to between 103 - 105 mph -- At the 1/4 mile track, I have left it in 3rd gear and hit the limiter right as I passed the line-- My time slips have been between 103- 105 mph.

    3.42s in my car as well.

    There is a gear ratio/ mph calculator floating around on this forum somewhere.
