can't wait to see what she'll do when i get back, too bad it'll be awhile. banzai requires a 2500 mile break in to keep the warranty.

1/8th mile times are like greek to me as i've never run an 8th but i used to be a stang NUT (still kinda am i just like lots of diffrent cars too, hence selling my 400hp 88 mustang for a stock FD) the thing about stangs is, they range from REALLY slow to insanely fast with very little effort, i mean if he put the wrong combination of parts in his (like 90% or stangs owners do) then he could have actually made it much slower than stock.



either way, good kill just don't go thinking that the next stang would be anything like this one, its always hit or miss.

i've also street raced a late model gt500 so i know it was no fluke. i was in the banked lane (banked for drainage, straight road though) so my back end was washing out towards the curb. even with the horrible traction and going down a straight street at an angle, i kept up with him lol. this was in northern texas right next to where nitrous express is based. they don't do mistakes on mustangs lol

Lol there are 3 types of tuners in Wichita falls. Vettes (mostly ******), camaro/mustang nuts (always have something to prove and want to race everyone), then the import guys (random grab bag of cars that range from well built monsters to grenades with the pin barely in, all outcast by the general populace of Texas). All the import guys aim for beating the vette guys though because they snub their nose at everyone lol
