    I raced an 05+ GT at the dragstrip with my Evo. I happen to have the timeslip in front of me. He ran 13.3 at 103.9 with a 2.00 60' time. I'm pretty sure he was stock (I ran a 12.4/112.8).

    Those numbers seem like numbers for a mustang with slicks on it, a 2.00 60-foot is amazing for street tires on a mustang GT thats nearly a 1.9, the trap speed is accurate the ET is quite a bit faster than what i have personally seen or any reviews that the pros have run with the car. I don't have any time slips of mustangs racing but here are some reviews. Yeah yeah its magazine racing, but 99 times out of 100 a person running the mustang in a magazine can drive it better than 99 out of 100 mustang owners on the street, so these numbers are always better than average.

    Car and Driver
    at 5.0 seconds to 60 mph, it was quicker than either of the coupes we've tested, which ran 5.2 seconds and 5.1, respectively. The convertible also turned in the best quarter-mile time—13.7 seconds at 103 mph.

    Road and Track
    According to Road and Track it ran a 13.9@101.4mph and that was with the 5 speed.

    0–30 mph.......2.0
    0–40 mph.......3.2
    0–50 mph.......4.2
    0–60 mph.......5.3
    0–70 mph.......7.0
    0–80 mph.......8.8
    0–90 mph.......10.8
    0–100 mph.......13.5

    0–100 ft.......3.0
    0–500 ft.......7.6
    0–900 ft.......10.9
    0—1320 ft (1⁄4 mile).......13.9 @ 101.4 mph

    MotorTrend
    The new car's 13.6-second time is about a half to a full second better. The new car's 99.9-mph speed at the end of the quarter mile is just shy where most current-gen Mustangs run. This one was an auto.

    In the end the fastest number here was a 13.6 which is what an average stage II wrx will run while the slowest number of a 13.9 is what a poorly driven stage II wrx will run.

    I posted in the other mustang thread as well, but yes it is a drivers race, i have only raced one from the drag strip and he had slicks and beat me by .2 of a second, then i went frummaroll with my friend who has intake headers and exhaust and edged him out up to 120....so like i said, its all in the "driver mod"
