2013 Mustang GT convertible 1/4 mile times?

Anybody have 1/4 tiimes for a 2013 GT vert. I'm conidering an auto in either a coupe or convertable. Will I be required to install a roll bar in the 'vert to comply with the rules (13.49 and quicker needs a 5 point bar) ?

I have a 2011 auto vert they should run close to the same times. Stock my best run was 13.1, tell them you run a 14 usally though but take a helmet, I have not had an issue.

good luck

Thanks Revenge, that was my gut feeling. I will most likely put in 4.10 gears and drag radials to be able to hit the tree which will make the car a tad faster. I know that I can run without too much hassles on grudge nights but can't lie when I have a 13.0x dial-in painted on the car windows durning bracket eliminations.

Just get a coupe and avoid the problem, especially if you plan to bracket race. Depending on next years nhra rule interpretation a coupe will not need a rollbar until 9.99.

I saw that. '08 and newer unaltered hardtops. Meaning completly stock including the tires. Verts and t-top cars will need the rollbar/rollcage rules. I think this is to let the Z06 and Shelby owners legally run their cars without the current 11.50 rollbar rule.

I believe any power adder will still require a cage so nitro, superchargers, and turbos even from factory are still SOL if they want to avoid the hassle.
