    Well, with the chance of rain, only about 12 total car was there. Out of the 12, 5 were stock mustangs. 1 terminator, which was the fastest of the group, and 4 other newer coyote 5.0 cars. I can say, im not all that impressed with them. The fastest of the group ran a 9.46 in the 1/8th mile. The terminator was knocking on the low 9's, but was either spinning or burning the clutch down.

    I thought they would be putting down faster times. Even though Ford has the curb weight for a 2014 GT w manual listed at 3618, I suspect that is bone dry minus all fluids. Its time manufacturers do as motorcylce manufacturers and list dry and wet weights of these piggies!!!

    Can't expect hero runs from ever car.... its not easy to be consistent and I'm sure they are at test and tune to learn before getting into a class
