Please Read *TRACK QUESTION*

Well i have been a on lurker here for a couple of years
and have read that our civics our generally faster than 2v mustang 99-04
well i went to the drag strip saw this convertible mustang it was automatic and i thought why not talk a little trash

so he called me out and we raced he beat me really bad he ran a 13.9@100
vs my 15 flat
i was very embarased when they openned up his hood and it was mostly stock besides a intake and flowmasters which every mustang owner has
he also didnt have a back seat i thought he had a stall but he didnt it was stock from what the other guys were saying (chevy guys and srt4 guys)

what did i mess up on is my car messed up?

why would you talk trash on someone you don't even know? you got what you deserved on that one bud...but you aren't really giving any info about the cars involved, what kind of mustang? what do you have done to your car?

he gave me plenty of info on his car he wasnt being a **** to me the other guys were the camaro guys mostly his car was a 2001 gt all he had was no back seat or anything in the trunk allumin cai kit of some sort off road pipe with flowmasters and stock everything else

i read on here all the time that we beat those cars easily i thought it was true i assumed it was

i really felt so embarrased my car only has a injen cai kit

the chevy guys kept being the most ****s to me ever

No, even if you think you know what you are doing. My friends similar GT with less mods and probably more tuning runs 13.1's consistently on street tires.

Probably about what you ran, next time try a V6 mustang instead.

I guess it applies more to road racing not drag

The new V6 Mustangs run in the 13's, the new 5.0 I believe run 12's off the show room floor. It's best to stick to similar style cars as the Civic is as opposed to tackling muscle cars.

just add header and exhaust and flashpro and work on your driving and you should be pretty close

Valid argument. Beat em where it hurts, at the gas pump!

You don't have a "rear end" to explode, btw. Keep it real playa!



OMFG
