Let me tell you some ****. I lost to an auto v6 mustang yesterday. FIVE TIMES. He said it was stock, and as far as I could tell by looking under the hood, no intake, no exhaust. He chirped into second, and could power brake up pretty high. He took me by 3 car lengths. He had to slow down for one of the runs due to to traffic, only giving me a 2 carlength lead. At about 85-90 he walkedd me by another two car lengths. I raced this one guy with an Si that has I/h/e, and was creeping up to about 105. WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? a V6 muffsain. AUTO. I almost cried. I jumped for joy after racing that si. I don't know what happened yesterday, but I noticed that my car wasn't taking off at 4k like it normally does, and also I guess the amount of steel belts sticking out of my tires probably has something to do with racing that v6. It was about a 55-60 punch with the si. I also can say that I DO know how to drive so don't talk shiit. I have intake and exhaust on my 5spd, and run 10.3 in the 1/8.
What could it be? a stock v6 mustang, takes me, and I creep on an Si with I/H/E? what could it be?

chirp into second with an auto? Man i wish i could do that. I have an 89' Auto and i can take a v-6 till 75mph, u should have no problem. Something sounds a little fishy.

Of course u said your tires are bald, so that could definalty be it, the hull shot is the most important part.

The hull shot? Are you torpedoeing another ship out there? HOLE shot.... http://www.freshalloy.com/

Do you want consolation or explanation. The newer v6 mustangs have about the same HP as the old 5.0L mustangs. They are heavier than our cars, and with Auto, you should probably be able to take it, but you haven't really said if it was new or not. Also, there is the possibility all they have done is changed out the final drive and you wouldn't know it....But you would think they would have other things done to the engine also. http://www.freshalloy.com/

If it is a newer v6, then those are actually pretty peppy. Mid-hi 14s with a stick, if I remember right. I've driven a 94 v6 automagic....slow, slow, slow.

Dude, if you can SEE the belts... DON'T DRIVE ON THEM!!!

Get some new tires pronto, if you're cheap / broke get some used ones, but get SOMETHING better.

1) No tread on your tires? Dont drive on them.

2) Dont waste your time with V6 Mustangs, it just doesnt do the 240 justice..

But then again, if you havent setup your car with proper suspension/brakes, you're not doing your 240 justice.. http://www.freshalloy.com/

Well, I do only have 14 more days untill I get some Z32 TT rear wheels with some ecsta supra 712's so I won't be driving on the belts too long.

I have been reading this board for awhile but i had to post on this subject. First off the new mustang v6's manuals do not run no mid to high 14's. They run low 16's to high 15's depending on driver, and these are manuals. And a few weeks ago i raced a new v6 automatic mustang in my old 92 Stanza which is a manual. And i won, i had it by about a car. So i think something is a lil fishy about this so called v6 Mustang you ran.

I'm moving this to the "Road Kills" forum.
