    What will I do against

    My buddy just bought a 2009 Mustang convertible and he called me out so I told him to take of I'll have a smoke then I'll take of and wait for him at the other end with another smoke.Was that 2 cocky lol

    First of all I don't smoke 2nd I'm an a4 stock except for a lid a cat back and 3:23 gears about 13.5 in the quarter at 106mph

    Second car is a 99 svt cobra Mustang how will I do against that

    3rd is a new Challenger he says it's the first with a custom exhaust and intake from factory will he me bad or how am I going to do.

    We are going to go at the track next month on Tuesday night and see how we do.

    I can spare a grand that my wife probably won't notice to put a stall and a cam my mechanic says I'll be in the 12's with that high 12's but in the 12's wonder if I should do it I don't need it it is a familly car meaning that my wifes loves driving it oh it's an A4

    Your wife will notice if you put in a cam or stall man
    You have the mustang, it should be close against the cobra and close w/ the challenger if he doesn't have headers.
    Stall w/ tranny cooler if you want to go fast in a straight line. some drag radials would help also.

    Fast in a staright line is what I like for sure. So just a stall and a tranny cooler would make a big difference hein!!!!

    People go w/ 3600 stalls because they lock up-so regular driving is more feasable. The main thing that stopped me from doing my stall was that our tranny's brake at high rpm's or just more power period. Around town it will be more noticable than anywhere else- I guess it's not so bad as long as your exhaust won't bug the piss out of the wife.

    No w/ a lock-up during cruising it will drop to a 1:1 ratio-pretty damn close so maybe 2200rpm instead of 2000rpm at 65mph or 120km (whatever it is)

    That was a good time to put in 3.73's . A stall and nitto's will take you to the high 12's. People always wish they went bigger stall but if your not going cam a 3200-3600 is fine w/ just about everyone telling you to go to a 3600.

    I know 3:73's would of been perfect for sure but right now I think a stall and a cooler will do and the 3:73's next summer

    Yeah you are dead on at 110kmh or 65mph it's at 2000rpm with a stall it will go to 2200rpm that's not bad at all

    Yah the rpm's will ride high around town, but will be decent for commutes- when you get that tune tell the tuner to keep the shift points below 6000rpm our stock cams peak st 5250rpm anyway-no sense in fucking up your trans.

    Sure ine after tuned was set at 6000rpm on second gear-not thrilled but i'm okay w/ it. As log as your not shifting at 6200 like you have a z06 cam.

    My life is a

    This isn't the "kills section" bro. Road Racing is the term used for racing on a closed loop that emulates the road with multiple turns/rises and falls in the land etc.

    But, yes, in a street race you most likely willl be waiting for him at the other end.
