ok so i raced two mustangs an auto and a manual. and i lost to both of them :/
they were from 20mph rolls. I'm mostly stock (bought houdinis v) the manual had Cam, intake, and a tune. the auto idk. but it was nasty i was pretty pissed and surprised. it was by car lengths 2 or 3 prob. am i just a crap driver or is this normal?
what would it take for me to hang with a bolt on 5.0?
saw a 5.0 beat an m6, a sti, my v, and then a v2 destroyed the 5.0 :-)

Don't be upset, I almost got beat by some dirt head driving what I believe was a v6 camaro... I never really challenge anyone or beat on my car but I just couldn't let this one go. Caught 2nd and 3rd I was shifting so hard.. Sad

i've driven every version of the 2013 mustang on the track, from the v6 to the gt500, and I have to say, the V1 will eat a GT's lunch in the corners. The Boss, however, is simply amazing to drive on the track.

I've managed to take a 5.0 from a roll on the highway in my stock V1, but it was a bit close.

Just throw a bottle in the trunk and you should be good to go.

There is some skill in racing, if you don't do it often, your at a disadvantage

Those 5.0s stock put down something like 414 at the dyno. They're underrated IMO. Consider that stock, our Vs put down 330-340... and you can see where we're going with this. A full bolt on and cammed V might put somewhere around 400-430hp, depending on cam spec, etc... Adding a maggie on the car, done correctly, can put you in the 450-470+ range, which is where you want to be to comfortably roll on a 5.0

Also, knowing your gears and driver-mod is the most important mod to be done.

Just a heads up... lets not post up in regards to the street racing too much. Its frowned upon here. :-( Sad panda face.
