I went racing today.To the dragstrip.I had a race with a guy that has a 01 gt.He has cai and magnaflow cat back no converters.I am a pretty season racer.The best time I could pull off was a 14.7 95mph.It is hard to keep these things from spinning.My car is bone stock.The mustang beat me by a car link.I had him all the way to half track the passed and pulled about a car link.I really wanted to beat him but he had just a little to much hp.Oh yeah the mustang has stock gears.If he would of had a bone stock car and ,if I would of had some nittos it would of been a different story.I'am still proud of the redline.Can you imagine what these cars are capable of running with mods.Just a pointer for you other guys.Run the car up to the redline as far as you can before shifting.

Good times. But a 01 5 speed GT is capable of running a 14.0 bone stock in good elevation and good driver. I am sure the RL is capable of more then that to with a good driver. I have seen people with more mods then me or a newer GT that is faster still get worse times because of the driver. All 99+ GT's run low 14's but the fastest one that i have payed attention or ran against, which i am sure they were stock, was a 14.9 when i was stock running 15.3. Good times and pratice, i am sure u can whittle it down some more.

14.7 is pretty good, man.

its the 2nd best time ive seen out there for redlines, so far.


hopefully we can get more used to our cars and get some better times.....and when the lsd's start getting put on i think itll make a major difference.


good job man, keep up the good work!

12.9??? No way...thats what an 03-04 cobra does and thats supercharged DOHC. I have heard of an 99+ GT running 13.9 stock with an excellent driver. ANyhow good time and keep practicing. One good thing about an auto..u cant blame it on your skill! lol

13.9 is a long way away tho, it will take some aftermarket for us to get there. Time will tell.

My uncle owns a 04 Mach 1, and so does his buddy. His buddy just hit 12.8X w/exhaust and nitto drag radials everything else is stock. Now mods for my uncles car 4.10 gears, exhaust rechipped ECU dyno'd @ 302hp to the wheels and i forget the tq. The best times he can pull off with stock tires is 13.8 he spins through 1,2,3, and chirps 4 gear. He is getting 10.5" rims w/drag radials for xmas this year. So next summer he might be in the 12's

These cars have easily 13.9s in them with a hard launch and some nittos.
With a 95mph trap you'll be lucky to hit low 14's with sticky tires sorry to break the news!

Again nothing against the Redline but 13.9 with just tires is NOT going to happen!

dont see 13.9 even w/ lsd. w/ lsd i can see possibly a 14.3 which is very respectable. Redline1 post some slips. want to see your times throughout the 1/4. 60' and so on.

A 95MPH trap should be good for low 13's, definitely under 14.5, once you learn to launch it.

I don't see why you guys think an LSD would help though, LSD's do not stop your tires from spinning, they only make it so that one tire doesn't spin freely while the other grips, which only happens when you apply throttle in a turn. An LSD will not affect your 1/4 mile times.

BTW, nice run =].
