Re: 2013 gt mustang automatic

I think the official time was 4.9 or so. Where around 6 seconds are you? How are you launching? What Traction Control settings? (hint: if it's not full off, the ecu is reducing power)

Above. Sounds like not turning off traction control. Also don't get caught up on the app as they can be off.

Re: 2013 gt mustang automatic

Push and hold it for more than 5 sec or so. One push disables trac control but leaves yaw control on.

Take it to the track for a real measurement. I did, hoever, do a 0-60 in 5 flat on ice cold pavement in January, on the Brembo Pirellis, using my Dashhawk. My car's a bloat-load '12 MT with everything but the glass roof.

The real track bore that out with a 12.9 at 112, with more to come if I can get the wheelhop under control. Car did loosen up alot after a couple thousand miles. It was tighter than a mosqito's bunghole at first.

I wouldnt trust those devices 100% go to the track and run it, see if it runs what it should.

No, that only turns of TC. ESC is still enabled and could be interferring. To turn of TC and ESC (aka Advancetrac) you have to be a complete stop with the throttle completely closed, hold the brake pedal and the TC button for at least five seconds. You will know when the process is complete since it will say "Advancetrac Off" on the info center. There is a very detailed write-up of the Advancetrac system in your owners manual that you should read to gain a full understanding of this system.

Me too, but please be sure that you are aware of the limits of your driving skill and the car's handling capabilities before you do so. This is what happens if you fail to observe those limits:

Driver Wraps New Mustang Around Tree After Owning It For Only Eight Hours


This guy owned his car for 8 hours and was driving WAY too fast into a turn with the nannies off. He's damn lucky to be alive.

Agreed, but then again, I learned to drive on RWD cars without traction control, stability control, or even ABS. Not everyone has had that privilege and you can get yourself into serious trouble if you don't know how to handle a RWD V8 with no nannies.

True. I learned to drive in a rwd also. I was raised out in the country on the farm. I started driving at 9 yrs old. My brother was driving a combine by himself at 11. And my 1st vehicle I bought at 17 was a Dakota r/t. Talk about traction issues. Especially after I modded it.

You might be better off at first with sport mode, it should help you launch to 60 under 5 seconds, hold down the break and double tap the trac control button, it will say "sport mode" this one you can do while rolling, I've done it at 65 on the highway with gentle breaking.

Until you get some radials on there this will pretty much give you all the power you can actually use at the wheels and will still let you spin a tad off the line

Even with the advanced track off i have had the tcs kick back in. For example, came to a complete stop and applied brake. Held button down for 5 seconds and receive notification that advancetrac was off, proceeded to do a donut and on the 2nd time around the tcs light started flashing not allowing it to spin no more and it would not rev over 3grand or so until it came back down to idle. Any suggestions?

That shouldn't happen. You could take it to ford, but they will void your warranty most likely for "driving it on a track" or some bull****.

Re: 2013 gt mustang automatic

Go with "sport mode" until you get a good feel for the car. It'll let you have fun and still help with holy sh$t moments.

Less interference than normal mode. It's all explained in the manual...

TC= traction control
SC= stability control

Four modes
Advance trac on= tc on, sc on
Traction control off= tc off, sc on
Sport mode= tc off, sc reduced
Advance trac off= tc off, sc off

So having advance track off is better in a straight line vs just tc off
