Me VS 2004Mustang GT Convert.

A friend of mine from works wants to race me at the track. He has a Mustang GT softtop with automatic tranny. He is getting a set of magnaflows installed. I have a 2003 Subuaru WRX Sedan with a MT. The only mod I have is a Cat Back Exhaust. I can launch pretty good.. I rev to 4000 rpm and slip the clutch slowly in which I think is pretty effective. I haven't really been able to test my times but I *think* i'm going really fast.

That's definitely the safe way to launch. Don't ever drop the clutch or you will kill the tranny.

I say go for it and race him. The auto tranny equalizes you even with his magnaflows. Let us know how it turns out. And don't race on the streets!

Even the manual tranny GTs are slower than the rex if you drive it correctly. I remember taking a guy with some exhaust on his gt, and I had two other people in my car.

yeah, you'll dust him if you get good launch and all. I raced a GT on the street, i gave him a little head start, say, 3 cars, before launched, i'm stock, i caught up in 2nd, passed him in 3rd. so you should do fine.
