Re: Need to hit the mid 14's

shift kit will help, but IMO i would go with a custom tuned chip from justin vs a genaric tune


those wheels will KILL YOU

Yes it will. I agree you should get a xcal2 and tune your shift points instead of getting a cheap shift kit.

18s will slow you down leave the oem 15s and put tires on the back ones for traction.

Re: Need to hit the mid 14's

you can run any wheel/tire you want bug weight slows the car down. Every pound of rotating mass is nearly equal to 10 pounds of dead weight. So if you increased your wheel's weight by 30 pounds thats like adding 300 extra pounds of dead weight to he car~

With all of those mods you should be a second faster if not more, Stock time are 16.0~

Re: Need to hit the mid 14's

wheels are all personal preference, you have to pay the price for getting 18 inch rims, they are not THAT much heavier but they are heavier. I wouldnt worry about it to much though, get an aluminum driveshaft to help offset the extra weight (an aluminum driveshaft is 10lbs lighter, and its 10 rotating lbs)

Dude, you could take the wheel money, spend that on real mods,
and go mid 14's with a cam and tune. Get the shift points modified
with the tune.

Going Fast > Looking Good

You already got a Mustang, so it looks good. I'd rather have fast car
that looks really good than a slow car that looks awesome.

Use your street racing winnings to buy the wheels...


Did I say that out loud???

4.10 gears
a posi-trac differential (or whatever it is y'all call 'em)
some sort of drag radial
and hit it with as much nitrous as it'll take.

You dont need nitrous to run mid 14's. Bolt on's, a flasher, and 4.10's should be enough(with a decent driver).

But nitrous is about as expensive as a single bolt-on.

that's a matter of opinion! Why have a posi-trac? Is there a negi-trac??

Traction-Lock, alright, that makes sense.

Re: Need to hit the mid 14's

they work differently in most cases, aka detroic locker vs ford tlok. The name some time justifies the means.
