Finally!!!

had a run in with a 05 GT from a stop.

ive ran quite a few on the freeway but each time we were dead even till 135ish.

so im coming out of out mall parking lot, and i come to the first light and im first at the light on the right lane. im there for a good 3 minutes and then a black 05 pulls up, i figured it was just another v6. i was tired from working 9hrs straight, so i really didnt give a rats *** and just wanted to get home.

then he revs, and its definately a GT with a very nice exhaust setup. ok now im interested, i tighten my driving glove(i wear a glove on my right hand cause the billet knob on my shifter is frozen whe i get in the car) and get ready, cause its going down. after he revs, i see his car inch forward, as if you had a automatic in Neutral to rev, and clicked it down to Drive and forgot to put your foot on the brake.

so i start revving the car, check my rear view for crown vic headlights, check my left and right for crown vic lights, none on the horizon. then the through traffic light turns yellow, its time to party.

pull the rpms up to 2k, as soon as i did our light turned green, i slipped the clutch out and went full throttle, tires spun in the cold night through the intersection, but so did his. hit 2nd with a bang, and immediately got a half length on him. took second out to 5.5k and hit 3rd, chirped them. look next to me and hes still at my rear, take 3rd all the way till i shut down right in front of the ford dealership, with all the salesmen standing on the sidewalk staring. i slowed down in hopes of possibly meeting the guy and bringing someone onto our site, but he turned off into the wal mart far behind me.

isnt it great how 15 seconds of fun can totally wipe 9hrs of work from your mind?

Re: Finally!!!

They're a little bit heavier but I don't know if that would make that much difference.

Re: Finally!!!

yeah, just by a few hundred pounds i believe. they also have 300hp cause of better flowing(3v) heads compared to the 260hp 2v output of a 99-04. but then again, i believe he was a auto, and thus is why my superior shifting got me the lead over his slomatic. plus my slight mods evened out the output a little, so i wasnt at the huge 40hp disadvantage.

Re: Finally!!!

isn't the computer in the 05s a little less responsive as well? namely, being drive by wire, flooring it doesn't immediately get you WOT? It takes it's time or something to prevent damage and for efficiency (sp?) and such....

Either way...nice job. I haven't seen anyone in an 05 that would think about punching it around here....the only exception was the roush I saw but we had too much traffic to do anything major although that would have just embarrased him even more.

Re: Finally!!!

the 05's are gears, a couple bolt ons, and tuning away from 12s

Re: Finally!!!

My opinion of the 05 GT!!!

Best seats ever in a Stang
Nice interior layout
Nice stance
Bland rearend
nice front grill
Frumpy looking front bumper The concept front end was 300%better
Simulated side vent on the car look like ***. Nice engine but needs more power to lug that big *** body around

My take GIVE ME A SRT CHARGER ANYDAY!!!!
