Why am I winning

I have a 2009 Mustang GT only mod is FRPP stingers, and really bald tires lol, my friend has a 08 mustang GT mods include, CDC shaker hood, really good street tires, 2 step launch system, eibach lowering springs and some other suspension upgrade, we raced three different times and I win everytime, you would think that since he is older, he would have more driving experence, I win by at least two or more car lenghts why?

Manual, auto? If you have a stick, that's why. Youd be about .3-.4seconds faster

Both cars are manual, and my launchs are a little harsh considering my tires are burning (smoking) when I take off, also what are the RPM numbers I trying to shoot for on a launch?

He can't drive, or there's something wrong with the car(his). Maybe both.

He needs driver mod. Switch cars and see if you still win in his car. That will tell if its the car or the driver.

Cool stuff! Having a place to store and work on your ride along with the time is awesome! I've got my bike in my building on paddock stands freshening/restoring some things! Take your time and enjoy it!

It'll be awhile now I got three tickets last night and we don't have a local drag strip, so I don't wanna risk it just yet, but it will happen before winter!

That's some bad luck. Surprised they didn't pull your license. What were the tickets for?
