on paper I'm guessing your buddy would edge you out.. he's got a little more HP and quite a bit more Torque... but it could be close...2005 Mustang V6 said:my buddy just got a 98 gt. both our cars are stick. im not a big street racer and there are no tracks around here, so im curious which car would win?
Yeah thats about average. They can dip into the 14's with good driving. Last time i went to the track there was a guy with a 95 GT bone stock. His first time ever at the track to tho and he couldnt break a 16.0 but thats just bad driving and nerves. One thing i will say tho, it could have gone faster and that was the cleanest 95 I ever seen. Spotless, inside and out! :drool:fishingjts said:At the track last Friday night there was an 94-98 GT... couple of runs I see were 15.2 and 15.1.....
wtf?Crazy001 said:Nope, that's not correct.
Look at a Honda S2000. 1/4 mile in 14.9. 153 lb-ft of torque!!! But, it redlines at 9,000 RPM...
1997 Mustang GT - 290 lb-ft torque. 1/4 mile in 15.1 seconds!
It's all in gearing, power, and where the motor makes the most power. NOT torque alone.
S2000 try 2800+lbs and 95-04 Mustang`s are around 3300lbs give or take! not 4500lbsKyle F said:wtf?
I love getting into this discussion. Look what you just posted. A .2sec differenc in 1/4 mile. THen you forgot most important factor S2000~2400lbs? Mustang 4500Lbs.
Torque is everything... HP is nothing.. its a mythical figure conjured up in engineering to describe the powerband. Its a guide to for what gearing you need. Torqu is a twisting force... what dirves the wheels. HP is th ability to produce torque at high RPMs. So gearing also takes out the Top speed argument if you have to gear so lo to get moving. Thats why a lot of salt flat cars have to be pushed up to 60mph or so. The gearing is so high it doesn't multiply the torque enough to get up and moving. Its the whole momentum thing coming into play.
So, I still stand by Torque wins races Hp sales cars. That why a Vette beats the crap out of an S2000. Even back to the LT1 days!
YA big deal :so ! Mister I have the fastest V6 Mustang in the US ! It is a big Deal !kscoyote said:Big Deal, I've beaten a 97.
With a couple of mods, and getting rid of the TC/throttle program and you could take him.
