Yesterday I raced a pretty fast mustang, he handed me my ass but, I now think I know what my car needs to go faster. Anyway to the cars.
95 ish mustangBasic mods I know of-I don't know everything)
-swapped out the stock motor for a GT40 crate motor
-supercharger(vortech I think)
-headers, exhaust( sounded really good)
-10 psi of boost at 6500 rpm
-shifts at 7500 rpm's (bit higher that your average 5.0)
-Probably a ton of other ****, he guesses it makes around 500hp at the wheels. (I don't think It's quite that high but its high)
-u-tech (still needs some tuning)
-SR40 (21 psi)
-Stock motor and tranny
-probably some other little crap I can't think of
So to the races, we race twice both from rolls. I would have liked to go from a stop but he didn't really want to. I just wanted to see how I'd compete I wasn't planning on winning.
1st race was from a 50mph roll. We started on the third honk pretty well the same time. Were off, through the little bit of 2nd I had left I was holding my own. lol. As soon as I shifted into thrid he started to walk, but when the rpm's got up pretty high he stopped pulling. Just for a sec. or two then I shifted to 4th and he went back to the walking.lol. I let off at about 120 with him well ahead. I think I did pretty good.
Race 2, we line up at 25mph(wish I did 20) third honk we hit it. With in a fraction of a sec. I hit the rev limiter(but may have pulled slightly eh not really but we were close) Then he pulls a little on me but were real even all through 2nd. The I shift into third and again he pulls on me, but agian I notice that in the high rpm's he stops pulling But then I shift into 4th and he pulls some more. I'd say he pulled like a couple car's in third, and maybie 3 or so, in 4th then I let off. Great race lots of fun, can't wait to try him again. I'll come back with more rpm's and better geared tranny and see how he does. And if that fails we'll have to try from a stop!!
Oh and I have video of it, I hope to get it downloaded to my pc in a few days(I have to use a friends PC, mine is old) When I get that if somebody will host it, I'd like to get it on here.
