Integra GSRs with bolt ons can beat GTs.... My Integra RS (non-vtec) could stay with them pretty good with the few mods I had on it. Unless he has done some sizeable mods, you should've beat him...

Anyone here will tell you that racing from a roll is NOT a strongpoint of the WRX. Take advantage of AWD and try it from a stop next time and see who wins.

I never raced one, but I figured they would get a WRX from a roll. I think they run 14.1 in the 1/4 and trap around 100mph. Also, from 15mph was the turbo fully spooled or did you have to wait for full boost to kick in??

Real races are from a stop.

No way. I think you are thinking about the Mustang Mach 1 or Cobra, the GT definitely doesn't run a 14.1 stock. It has around 250hp and weighs a whole lot. My friends have beat many of them running 15 flat in the 1/4. Definitely take it from a stop if you can tho, the torque the car makes could be why he beat you on a roll.

Uhh I was behind one a week or so ago when I was drivin with my gf in the car. He had exhaust and shit not sure what else, but he had his car pinned and I stuck on his ass like a hemerroid (sp). I actually had to let off the gas a cuppla times to prevent hitting him.

My friend also had a rediculous '00 GT, he's still got it but he bought a Lightning and took the 'stang off the road so I never got to race it in the rex. :-( But I'd love to, ### I bet I could've walked that thing. Hell, I beat it in my old Z24 with nitrous.

Mustangs aren't that fast, even though I like'em alot. I think you should've beat him, but I might be wrong.

BTW I have an uppipe and turbo back.

Don't know about that man. My friend owns a Type-R with full exhaust and cams and I can still slightly pull ahead of him. His best is 14.27 @ 100 mph, mine is 13.97 @ 101.9, same track, same day

My car is a 99 GT with a shifter and catback.

Some people are in denial, a well driven Mustang GT can definitely hit 13s right off the showroom floor

280hp to be exact for the GT and Cobras run deep 13s. As for the Mach 1, they are only about .1-.2 sec faster in the 1/4 mile.

A few facts from a Mustang enthusiast

99-04 Mustang GTs (16v N/A), rated at 260 hp, dyno 225-230 rwhp and run 13.9-14.3 depending on the driver

Mach1s (32v N/A), rated at 305 hp, dyno 275-280 rwhp and run 13.2-13.5

03-04 Cobras (32v supercharged), rated at 390 hp, dyno 355-380 rwhp and run 12.7-13.0

I guess the ones I have raced were just really bad drivers then. One of them I know was an automatic but if the car is supposed to be that good then it must just be the drivers down here....

NoLimit, first of all, I don't think an Integra GSR w/ bolt ons can take on a stock Mustang GT.

Secondly, are you sure the Mustang you raced was a stock GT ? GT w/ bolt ons can easily run 12s.

BTW, yes Mach1 are WAY faster than GTs. GTs have 16 valves, single over head cam engine and redline at 5800 RPMs. Mach1s have 32 valves, double over head cam engines that redline at 6800 RPMs. The 4v heads flow A LOT more than the 2v.

Hope that helps !

I just beat a Mustang GT in the quarter by about 7 car lengths. It had exhaust and some other basic bolt on. To be fair he also had 130,000 miles and two 15's in the back seat. I wish you guys could have seen his face when I told him it was a 4 cylinder with exhaust!
