those mach 1s are quick dude, dont be suprised if you really walk him, with the mustangs torque behind you, ur going to most likely take him from a dig, and from a roll, well if you got some nice tires, you should walk him both ways.
yeah i know i can take him from a dig for at least a hundered feet. but then i am worried he might be able to catch up with his turbo. i guess it depends on how much of a jump i get on him at the beggining.
hes running like 18 psi right now and he has a lot of bolt ons. but i just drove with him yesterday and his car is getting a lot of wheel hop when he first takes off. so i think i can take him from a dig.
mach 1's were also underated too. they make around 325 crank horsepower and 340 ib-ft of torque. its about 280 at they wheels. yeah dude youll blow him. unless your racing like 3 miles than he'll eventually catch up IF he has more HP. but your torque def wins the race. and u probbaly have a better gear ratio to get you through your power band
my best friend has a 04 srt neon, with a 3 inch exhaust and a stage2 wastegate only... he spikes 22-23psi and hold 18-19 and my 03 gt only holds him for 300 feet or so from a dig, thats with my 4.30s and from anything around a 40 roll he will walk smooth away..... they are quick, and i wouldnt under estimate them. . . . . :nono:
i owned a 04 srt4 for about a year. got rid of it cause of damn wheel hop and traction- fwd FTL!!!
but dont underestimate his little skittle. if hes boosting 18 lbs and has full bolt ons he can be running high 12's to low 13's. you should be able to take him from a dig but watch your mirror- he'll be coming up on you fast. from a high roll he may get you. i raced the guy i sold my srt4 to(a friend of mine) with my new stang (few bolt-ons/tune). he had added a few bolt-ons as well. from a dig i got him by about 3-4 cars. from a 40 mph roll i only got him by 1-2 car lenghts.
it should definately be a good/close race. :shiny:
