( going with my dad who has an 09 m3 that's bone stock. would like to beat him)
I'm not to familiar with how quick the '09 M3's are in the quarter, but I imagine you would be able to take him with some solid driving. Make sure when you're launching that you ease the clutch out at a steady peace, instead of just popping it. Once the clutch is 100% out, then punch it, assuming you can still hook. Obviously, if you spin, just throttle your gas pedal at a stead peace as well. I'm not 100% sure how you should launch your Mustang since we usually always run drag radials at the track, but you'll catch on quickly. It's really just going to take a day of messing around with different style launches and see what works best with your car.
Good luck and let us know how you do!
