Nothing against V6's b/c your right- they can be turned into badass machines, but this video proves nothing really. I take that back, it proves the guy in the shelby shouldn't own a GT500 if he cant drive it. That is a low trap speed and a HORRIBLE ET for the shelby.. That car should be trapping way higher and hitting ET's of a 12.6-12.8 stock.. Not a 14.3 .. Heck, that guy embarrassed mustangs real bad.. C'mon, my stock 06 AUTOMATIC GT ran faster then that stock...

thats cool. that guy put some time and money in the v6 and got to go home feeling good about it. nothing wrong with that. he didnt embarass mustangs, the v6 MUSTANG ran good. theres always faster cars and better drivers,bla,bla,bla. its not always about that, it can also be about having fun and enjoying your car which i`d say he did.

when i said he embarrassed mustangs, i wasn't talking about the v6- he ran great, thats a real good ET/Trap. I mean the shelby was an embarrassment, b/c he should be doing 12.6-12.8 stock.. not 14.3s my stock automatic gt ran faster then that.. Yes you are right- it is about having fun. I just hate to see a car that fast run that slow(shelby)

It's not surprising that a turbo 4.0 would do that well against the GT and GT500. xchris was pulling something like 400rwtq and 330rwhp on 8psi and that guy was blowing 9.3psi.

Not to mention the v6 doesn't have to lug around that iron 5.4 block.

good to see a v6 beat a gt for once of course it had turbo and such but v6 shouldn't be underestimated.

If you watch, the GT500 lost it halfway through the run for a bit. If that wouldn't have happened he would have won. Way to go for the V6 for driving his car.
