test and tune day at the track

Well i finally got to got to the track the other day for the first time in the new mustang!!
This is my first sports car ever and i have never been on a drag strip in my life...gotta say i was pretty pleased....for and 1/8 mile and a stock 5.0 six speed manual she ran like a champ.


personal best:

r/t: .0312
60': 2.221
330: 5.752
1/8: 8.667
mph: 84.79


*only thing i have changed is i put a K&N filter in the car

Nice Job....
Next time stage shallow and go on the last amber light... both 60' and r/t will be better


I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

Did you go to San Antonio? Is it only 1/8 mile or can you do a 1/4 mile as well? Thinking about heading down there...

He had an .031 light!!! That is pretty awesome for someone that hadn't been to a dragstrip before!!

OP, more practice will get you some even better times!!

If it is an 0.031 light that is awesome... but seeing that the person wrote it out with four 4 numbers showing a ten thousandth of a second (.0001), i though that it was a miss print... I looked at all of my run tickets and it stops at the thousandth of a second(.001)... and they are from a real ******* race track, so I thought the poster meant to write 0.312 not .0312... How does the track you run at print out the r/t?... OP... was it a miss print or did you nail an 0.0312 light
