Which one would come out on top if they were both stock. A friend of mine is being constantly harassed by this guy with a mustang GT (previous gen). The stang driver talks so much smack about how his car will kill the Z. So I'm just wondering if my friend has any chance in beating the cocky mustang driver and hopefully shutting him up.

"...Mustang GT models come with a 4.6-liter overhead-cam V8 that produces 260 horsepower..."

Stock to stock looks like a close race...

Doesn't sound like ford boy knows what he's up against, tho...z33 ain't no 240sx...I think fordboy's in for a sur-prise.

I've raced a done up 88, the driver told me he's putting over 300 rwhp. the race goes like this:

from a stop
1st gear: he fishtales and gets a 1 car jump
2ed gear: I miss second .. he fishtales again
3ed gear: I make up half a car on him
4th gear: I walk .. pass him and put 3 cars by the end of forth.

I love forth gear.. thats your winning ticket.

the following week he went and installed a supercharger lol

:rolf2: :nana: :lmfao: That IS great! A buddy of mine used to get frustrated trying to hang with me on corners with his 5.0 when I had my Z32. He finally went out and bought a Paxton SC so he could keep the distance... :rolf2:

fo shizzle ... actually it's the other way, the stang has no chance unless it has mods. Auto Z is almost as fast as 6MT but it's more consistent.

That's good news I had no idea that the auto in a Z was that good. My friend is racing tonight so I'll post the results.
