Raced a 700hp Ford GT

It was a really good race. The car is an 06 and cost the owner 170k after mods. Its got an upgraded supercharger pulley, underdrive pulley, and intake system.

He typically runs a 50shot of nitrous as well, but ended up running out earlier that night. This all took place on our private track.

I pulled out 3 bike lenghts or so from a 50 roll...and stayed there..but on the way home we went from a 110 roll and it was side by side up until the I tapped out at 185ish...of course the GT stayed in it until 195mph! (with the windows down!)

A passenger in the GT was tapping and got some awesome footage, i will post it up as soon as i get it.

BTW, after the upper 180's mph, the GT blew by me like i was standing still...

That car sounds so mean at the speed...

Joe

BTW, i also raced an 03 cobra that puts down 740 HP, and beat by 4 car lengths. He was a great driver, but was having traction issues....I may get vids of this race too

I know that you are probably joking...

But to clarify. This is a ford GT 40, not a mustang.....here is a photo.

I like ford GT's
The only problem with them is that I will never own one. EVER. If I had that much money, I'd have to buy a house. that won't depreciate...

sweet

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

Ohh!!! I thought it said Mustang GT. Damn, I need to pay closer attention. Ford GTs are pretty cool. They look the business but I'd take a new z06 over one. How badass is it that you have a private track. SOunds like fun.

Private Track = secluded road.

I was just being jocular...
