Keep in mind: There's no repalcement for displacement. There are a lot of sleepers out there.
I've got a '67 fastback mustang with a 390 (prototype engine for the mach1 cobrajet) and even the 12 second ScionSpeed tC is going to be choking on my exhaust at the end of a 1/4 mile.
Sorry, no dyno slips - didn't think to keep em. They don't really want to let me back because I refuse to install a roll bar (not fast enough for a roll cage though).
However, on a road course an old lady in a walker could take me since the Mustang corners like its on ice. And of course the stock 4-wheel drum brakes don't help much.
I use this for when I want to go real fast.
Not to be a dickhead, but ummm, you dont even know the model, engine or anything about the car you raced, so you shouldnt assume that muscle cars are slow.Originally posted by Azrael@Apr 20 2005, 06:27 AM
I think it's funny because the drivers of all these old muscle cars think that they are the fastest things on the street. My stock tC is faster (in my best Nelson Muntz voice) ha-ha.
Im not going to start a flame war, I dont own the cuda anymore anyways, but to get to your SRT topic, thats Why I have the super slow, there are only a select few SRT's on all of SRT forums I even have to worry about at this stage.Originally posted by f1jay@Apr 22 2005, 06:52 PM
then again, come across a neon srt-4 especially one with a stage 3 package and watch your cuda get smoked by a 4 banger. I've driven a 05 recently with a stage 2 package, and saw it consistently hit the low 13's. Not many mopars w/ less than 400 hp can see that
I agree with your other post, im just saying, I wish you had a little more information on the car you raced. I have known my fair share of SMOG era Idiots who bolt on a 1050 Holley dominator, tunnel ram intake manifold, 2.25" headers, and a .270/.270 Duration .550 lift @.050 cam, and think they are bad ass, whne their engine still has stock iron heads, and 8.0:1 compression.Originally posted by Azrael@Apr 23 2005, 06:26 AM
Yeah, Marty, my response was more to 2cudas than to you.
