This Sound Right

I have a 2013 Mustang GT Automatic, that is stock except for a Borla Atak Catback, which yes is still having some minor issues with squeaks and what not.

Anyways, a svt cobra came up to me today and had two very friendly people in the car and asked me if I wanted to go. I said sure, I dont really race people but this sounds fun.

Anyways, we raced from a red light and even though I started a little before he did, he quickly caught up and basically beat me to around 60 MPH, where I started to inch up on him and I felt like I could beat him had I more room to go (there was a truck in the lane ahead of me.)

I find it hard to believe that he beat me for a majority of the race. I mean, the only serious mods he had done to his car was full exhaust, a pulley (whatever that means), and a mail-order tune. Plus, he had a passenger and I was riding solo. Does this sound right?

If it was a 03/04 Cobra....Yes it's very possible. Those cars are fast. Your car being a automatic is a disadvantage on the street

We do not talk about or promote street racing in this forum. It is illegal and dangerous to say the least. With that being said, he has more torque than you and possibly more power if his mods are true. With that combination you will always lose to 60mph.

Those cars came with 390 crank HP. Pulley exhaust and tune he should beat you. Don't feel bad, he has a modded car that already came with a supercharger. Now you just gotta get a supercharger

Why does it matter If it's talked or promoted? Not like anyone here hasn't or doesn't street race. Track is more controlled but same
Thing can happen I've seen cars flip over barriers and people have died from tracks. I've never heard anyone promote street racing but talking
About it shouldn't be banished illegal or not or else drag racing or any racing of any kind
Should be banned. Just my opinion on that matter.

Re: This Sound Right

The pulley could mean hes pushing some meaningful boost, i wouldnt feel bad about losing to a svt cobra, theres just so much more you can do with a supercharger than you can with cheap bolt ons.

2 reasons I suspect
1) there are some inexperienced drivers on this forum... So with some scary fast cars. Probably best to not get their minds into it being a good thing.
2) ME might be held partially liable if someone were to use this forum as a cop out excuse that they did something stupid. People sue anyone 6 degrees separated of anything these days.

Going forward, lets just say you were at the track next time. Save yourself from the lecture line.

Those cars are fast as s***. they dont call them terminators for nothing. Don't be ashamed losing to one. If you want to race your auto buy a tuner and learn how to "race" it.

Pulley, tune and intake alone on any cobra is an easy 500 rwhp... Exhaust is just a bonus... Not to mention they are significantly lighter than the new body style mustangs...

Your numbers are way off... You can get about 450 max rwhp with those mods. This combo made 473rwhp...

Because those are the rules man. Honestly, it doesn't matter how you, me, or anyone else feels about those rules or street racing. It just is what it is.

That's right.. Further discussion of street racing will result in thread closed and or infractions, period.

Must have had a ported blower and lower pulley along with the other mods.

To the op I would expect that car to beat you with no problem, even with a passenger. His car is around 450 to the wheels and weighs less than your two ton beast

I raced the same car stock and then slightly modded ( pulley, tune, intake, cat back). Stock for stock I could pull in third but with the mods he pulled instantly and kept pulling until we lifted. This was in a track
