GT Vs. Mach 1

1940 Views 13 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Madhouse
Just curious as to how you guys think my 05 GT w/auto and bone stock would do against a buddies 04 Mach 1 w/ manual and bone stock as well. I think the mach one was spec'ed at 305 hp but I am unsure of the torque?

If we can ever get together im sure that we will find out :evillol: but that seems to be a while away.

I know I'm quoting here but, isn't the Mach 1 something like 0-60 in 5.6 and 14 in the 1/4?

Sounds like the '05 might just edge it out(barring driver experience of course).
It's going to really come down to the drivers. You've got a slight advantage with and auto (elminating most of the chance of driver error). For power, he's probably got you edged out.

I ran my buddy stock-for-stock, both manual cars, we ran really close but he started edging me out at the top of 2nd gear/bottom of 3rd gear. The Mach's pull hard all the way to 7K rpm.
Thanks for the input guys. I drove his car a while back and remember being real impressed with its power but since it was a while ago its hard to compare.

Mach 1 , a 14 sec car , maybe on a very hot day ,with a full tank of gas, and a bad driver !

I agree, bone stock (with no tuning) the new 05 stang (especialy an auto) would get "edged out" by a Mach 1. Its almost pointless to compare times from different tracks that have different elevations and air temperature. We need a 05/Mach 1 shootout for it to be fair. BTW my money is on the Mach 1 everytime. Now I'm not doggin' the 05, but stock tuning is for fuel economy not balls to the wall drag racing.

Car and driver got 13.8 with an Auto Mach 1, in the hands of a good driver 13.5 or better , MM&FF got a stock stick Mach 1 in the high 12`s !
My moneys on the Mach 1.

Yea, the Mach 1 is one bad mofo. My dream car is a Competion Orange mach 1, everyone would break there neck watching me rumble down the road.....
the White Mach 1 is my favorite, Black a close second !
I am adding nothing to this conversation, other than I love the blue Mach1. It's kind of a pale pastel blue. Sweet ride.
