Nitrous? Supercharger? No, just a new 5.0
My first two passes yesterday running in the True Street class was next to a 1967 modified Mustang. Not sure of his modifications but he was running in the 13 second class. Reaction times didn't matter in this class and it was a Pro Tree so I waited each time to see the green light before I left. The 67 Mustang left on me each pass so I had to play catch up to beat him. When I passed him I was approaching 115 m.p.h. versus his 100 m.p.h. . After the first pass we had a break on the starting line due to a broken car on the track. The 67 Mustang driver walked over to my car and said "what are you spraying?" I said "I am not spraying anything". "Oh, you must have a supercharger then". I replied "no, it is just a new 5.0" He could not believe that a stock motor could fly by him so fast. It was his first time running against a new 5.0. Needless to say, he was impressed.
