yup happens everyday lol. everyone says "watch out", but i think of them as noise makers not power makers. maby from a stoplight they could pull since they weigh so little, but if you get our pig rollin its game on! Go for a cobra next! in LA they all have puka shells and bleached blond tips haha. i dont waste my time unless their gfriend is with em

what mods do you have? and what year GT? A NEW GT from a stop would hand you your a--! and a cobra s/c'd? are you even serious?

I have friends who own all the above, I HAVE raced them, although, I am stock except for intake and exhaust, I get smoked everytime! Racing the s/c'd cobra isn't even a REAL race...

I don't know man, you must have some hefty mods, or, the GT was a dyno dog! or you stepped on it when he was slowing down??

Sorry man!

Maybe an older GT...the new ones are pretty fast. Even the old non s/c cobras are fairly quick.

What exactley should the new GT mustang be running in the 1/4? I saw one a few weeks back running 14.5, hot and humid night run in Florida does this sound right or did he just screw a GT gas cap on it?

Not really sure. I don't want to just make something up. I have raced a few and they are low 14's? Just a guess since it was on the street...ooops...did i say that? :huh:

I have a friend that has an 06 GT. He has not taken it to a track but I did watch him get beat by an 07 srt8 charger by around a fender, both cars were bone stock as well and I have seen srt8 chargers run low low 13's stock. The new GT's are no joke, I also think the last body style were fairly quick as well. I think if it was a GT it must have been a mid to late 90's GT with the body style after the fox bodies (I think it's called the sn95) As for racing a cobra, If it's an 03 or 04 cobra then you would just get sodomized hard core by the ford.

I remember reading an article in either C&D or R&T and the new GT did something like a 13.8-9 in the 1/4mile. Don't remember the exact time but it was a comparison between the GT and the Hemi Charger, GT was in the high 13's and Charger was in the 14.3-4 second range.

Maybe it was a 6 with GT emblems. At speed they weigh less, more areodynamic and not to mention we are out of our peek power.

I am calling BS on this one, sorry man. You have to look for dual tips or else it's just a 6 with GT badges. They have 300hp, weigh less, are more aerodynamic and have smaller diameter tires. No way your truck is beating that :smoke:

Stock they do about 13.5 - 13.7 in the quarter and 4.9sec 0-60 (as advertised by ford). 1st & 2nd gears are short (4.9 0-60) so a stop light to stop light is usually in the GT's favor if it can get traction.

They get an honest 30rwhp with an intake and tune.

I doubt the OP beat an new one much less reeled one in.
edit: here is that GT vs. Charger article

The new stangs in Guam with superchargers are hitting the 1/4 in the low 13's. The Ford dealer just brought in the new GT500 Cobra. Way too far for our Titan's league.
