2012 GT test drive 2day

Thats right peeps................i finally got to bangor, me and dropped off the wife and went to the local dealership......of course.... when the salesperson pulled the mustang around front RED was the color choice......VERY HOT indeed......but this is where i feel that this test drive went a little south for me......
...... last month i tested a 2012 V-6 ..
...when i got into the gas and shifted......the V-6 had great takeoff ....hit 40 and was only in second gear... when i hit the gas with the V-8 GT .....the takeoff was NOT THERE AT ALL...... salesperson said that the gear/transmission set up was different.......
.......................please dont get me wrong.......i had a BLAST driving the pony today...but i personally LEANING more toward the V-6 then the V-8........so in very few words...................I WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED

This has to be a troll post. Coyote mustangs could miss two gears and still beat the v6 in a race.

Even if the V6 you test drove had 4.10 gears and the GT had the stock 3.55s, the GT should have pulled a lot harder. I test drove both a 2012 V6 and V8, and stock for stock, there is a huge difference in power between the two.

Lol do you know how to drive? I'm leaning towards that this is a troll post, to start a *****ing thread.

This whole forum is headed that way apparently. A few months ago I decided to delete the app and quit coming on here and then one day I decided to just look again and see how things were. It's only gotten worse. And I still think that posters in the 11-14 section should be required to have proof of ownership.

I only post on here so much because its one of the only forums that isn't blocked at work. Don't get me wrong, I WORK at work, but I work at a desk so I can pop over for a minute or two when its slow or I just need to distract myself for a min. But yeah... this is probably the most technically inept forum I've belonged to. I'm used to ppl who can yank a drivetrain or properly do a power adder install or jet a nitrous system, not ppl who can't properly fill a transmission with fluid...

I like that idea.

Also the way the mods review things needs to change. I understand AM being a sponsor on here. But In all honestly they need to stop, recommending and telling people, certain mods work and are good buys. Some people are gullible on here, and will believe Everything AM will feed them.

I honestly feel if someone is just going to eat up anything AM tells them that's their own damn fault. Yes some ppl are gullible or new or both but there is this thing called google. I always bump anything I'm looking to buy against multiple forums to get an idea if its a quality product or not. My recent wheel/tire purchase did give me a few really good laughs when looking at the canned AM combos though. 275 on the front and a 285 on the rear in a staggered combo or a S197 combo with the front tire 1/2" taller than the rear?
