Smile i whipped a 99 mustang

Its not too big of a deal, my friend has a 99 v6 mustang hardtop with Manuel transmission.

we were on a back road and he said lets run, so i said ok and put on a good song to race to, and put my shifter back into auto stick

so the signal to go came and i didnt fully floor it, but i did give it some hard gas...my friend must not of had enough traction because his wheels spun when he tried to go, so that gave me a jump start on him, even though he did hit his gas before me...but once he did start going, it was all over for him...i beat him by about a car length.

he acknowledged that i won and said that it was a fare race, but that he had driver error.

to me a race is a race, no matter if there is driver error or not, its still a race...ive seen plenty of drag races to know that.

yea the 99 v6 had a 3.8 with 200hp and no posi. I dont think he was shifting like he was supposed to.you have the 3.2 with 225hp im not sure maybe it was really close right if not then good for you on the kill. if you werent in NC I would get my 98 v6 stang with 150 hp and 5 speed and beat your friend. the lucky ass has a split port intake in that year thats why hes got those hp numbers im gonna get one soon in there.

The 3.8 has 150 Horse to begin with. Mustangs suck, even the GT sucks balls. There not even fast. Just like the 5.0 and the 80's stangs, everyone you see has mods done to it with either a new engine or a small block chevy or somethin, the standard engine is slow, not beating anyone.

The GT's are pretty fast. As Car And Driver said about the Mustang, "Just be happy that you can still get 300hp and rear wheel drive for under $30,000.

Well none the less, i can get a ( R/T ) Charger or Challenger with over 300 Horsepower for under 30k. The GT500 Mustang is fast with over 500 im pretty sure, for 45k which really isnt a bad deal. But i just hate fords.

True, but the Stang actually weighs under 3500 lbs. I remember the acceleration testing and the Challenger SRT was at most .5 seconds faster than a Mustang GT. I would bet a GT would blow the doors off an R/T Challenger. (I would still buy a Challenger just because they look soo bad ass lol)

Im just sayin the 6 cyl isnt fast and the base models arent. didnt say anything about the GT's and the other trim levels. People get all hot and bothered when they see a stang and its a V6 stang, just sayin the 6 isnt fast thats all. Its the just the body of a stang that when people dont know about cars abd engines and all, they see a stang, and there like holy shit here comes the king. A 95 3.5 trep can beat a base stang.
