Autox info for the OP

Today I accelerated hard from a stop sign and made a sharp left turn, not sure if the rear end got loose, because I did hear squealing tires, no smoke.

You would know if you got sideways... When your turn hard and hear squealing that means your pushing your tires to their potential. Any more and you probably would have gotten sideways.

I had to do a steering wheel turn to the right(no, I didn't jerk the wheel). I think I probably would have gone sideways otherwise, dang that got my heart pumping...it was awesome, and of course, a girl I like was at the stop sign right behind me before I made that turn...

I had no intention of doing what happened, it just happened.

I knew someone was going to say that, either way, it was AWESOME. Would have been better with her in the car though...

This kid is going to kill someone. First this thread, and now he started another one about street racing and swerving all over through lanes on the highway. (its ok though, he knows where the cops hide). Kid, you seriously need to sell your car before you hurt somebody. Your not cool for doing this stupid **** no matter what your high school buddies tell you. Hopefully "that girl you like" realizes how irresponsible you are, and stays the hell out of your car. Because i cant even imagine what you would do to try and show off if she was with you.

Man your immature, which comes with being young. If you are not smart you are gonna wreck that car. Racing a V6 proved what? Seriously dude! Get a grip. If you don't tear it up you will end up with tickets and your parents are gonna **** when they see the insurance bill on top of all other cost. They are not gonna feel to well with you having that car if someone gets killed. Hope you don't start modding that car b/c you seem to have your hands full with it stock. I was young once too and done stupid **** and trust me dude listen to what people are saying here and over in other thread.
See you live in VA . You have lots of tracks in that state. VIR included.

I thought we already closed this debate, I've already stated I'm not going to street race again.

---------- Post added at 07:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:24 PM ----------

Back on the thread topic,was the squeal because of the Live axle, or would have happened anyways?

You just peeled out a little bit bro. Give it more gas and then your rear end goes sideways but as you see, it's not recommended you fool around like that on the street.

Nah, VIR is Virgina international raceway. VIR is a track you won't see just anywhere. Not that many of this type. It's one of the top "road course" tracks in the country. I was just throwing that in among many drag strips in VA.

No problem my man. It can get addicting and pricey from what I hear....LOL! I got several friends hear in NC that have done it. I Like drag strips more, but I have always wanted to call and arrange some track time at VIR to just try it out. I will one day. I Better get to moving though, Hell, I'm 45 2 weeks from today! I grew up going all over country when I was a little kid with my dad back in 70's. My dad and his partner where big time in NHRA SS IA. Even made it to Gator nationals back then. they ran a 68 Camaro for years. I remember going to Sulfolk in VA. Not sure of that place status anymore.
Sorry for jacking this thread but it's a jacked up thread anyway,,lol

To OP.... Man not picking on you , but you would be better off doing a lot of reading on the boards and use search engines for a lot of tech questions or just things you wanna know as you start to pick up things and learning and growing. Less post till then will help you come along. Of course if you need some help on something legit post but selective post

I know where you are coming from OP, when I got my Mustang I just turned 18 3 days prior and after I got it I quickly started into the modding scheme and was power hungry. I was flooring it everywhere I went and did crazy stuff through corners. A few spin outs later I realized that if I didn't control myself I could kill myself easily...

Now I drive easy most of the time. Usually driving at or just under the speed limit also. No point in wasting the gas and being that hard on the car. It went from me having to control myself to not speed to it coming naturally now.

Now I'm not saying it don't get on it. There is a reason I bought a Mustang, but there is a time and place for everything....

Oh, and it hasn't even been that long, I turned 18 in February, so I've had the car for 7 months.

Oh, and on a side note.... Your car has 250 more horsepower than mine, I'm sure it's a lot easier to kill yourself in yours than mine... I would recommend learning that sooner rather than later...

Not criticizing you, just explaining my experience and hoping you learn from it.

I know, I will only be going traffic speed(60-75 on highways) now. I've learned alot in the past few hours

This is going to sound a little harsh but I would give this same advice to my little brother or cousin so read it through, think about it, read it again, and understand that I am writing this because it matters and maybe not just to you.

MustangZ, it sounds like you are a relatively inexperienced driver with a world class sports car. The second part of that is a good thing and welcome to the mustang family. The first part of that statement isn't quite so good for either you or other people on the road with you. You need to learn how to drive in a number of different conditions and situations and you need to take it seriously. As far as mods go, DON'T. Trust me, you don't need your car to be faster and there are VERY few people who can drive a stock GT to it's full potential. Under normal daily driving conditions you should NEVER have to. So what should you do?

Other people have mentioned tracks and drag strips, but probably closer to you and a better learning experience would be to find an SCCA club close to you and start running autocross. You don't have the training, experience, licensing or car for wheel to wheel to racing and while fun, a drag strip won't make you a better driver.

Bring your parents out, ask questions, talk to a safety steward, go for ride alongs find a Mustang guy and ask more questions, go for a ride along. If you can't find a Mustang guy talk to a Corvette guy, there should be plenty of them and the basics between the cars are similar enough. Then get on the track and by track I mean a parking lot full of big orange cones. Leave your ego at the door. You will get smoked by 40 year old ladies in all kinds of cars, many of which are a lot slower than yours. Don't worry about being competitive, you won't be. Instead focus on fundamentals. Ask good drivers to ride along with you and critique you. Repeat the process for about 5 years and you should have a pretty good idea about the limits and capabilities of yourself and your car. Don't believe me? Try it. Along the way you will learn to be a much better driver than you can currently imagine and it will give you an outlet to prevent stupidity on public roads.

It is good advice. If my parents will allow it, I will. But I'd have a better chance convincing them to let me track, or drag strip race

It's slightly tongue in cheek straybullitt but the new GTs are on a par with the BMW M3 which is one of the most reviewed and loved sports cars in the world. How much of a stretch is it to call the Mustang GT world class?

Autocross is by far the least dangerous of the three. Take them to one and I guarantee they will allow it. Once they see the people and the cars that are running, hell, they'll probably tell you, "Move over Junior... My turn".
It really is a good time and a great way to improve your car handling skills.

AND... You get to drive around in your car while wearing a helmet, and not look like a total doofus...

Take them out to an SCCA event one weekend and tell them that you want to learn to be a better driver. Meet some people and talk to them. I can guarantee that solo autocross will be a MUCH easier sell to your parents than drags or wheel to wheel.

In solo autocross there is VERY little chance of accident or damage to your car. On most courses there is NOTHING to hit but orange cones. As far as motorsports go it is difficult to find anything safer.

Compared to the cars when I was the OPs age... They're goddamn Supercars!

Solo Autocross is a timed racing format usually done in a large parking lot or old airport.
A challenging course is set up using cones and all you have to do is drive around the course as fast as you can. Cars are started about half a lap apart so you are really out there alone. Check out the official website for more info on the racing format.
