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 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...

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.

Nice as the vette is, the Ford GT would eat the Z06.

Nope, but not too far from there.

There were a lot of nice cars out there. 1 nsx, a viper, a porsche caymen s, and lexus 300 with a supra motor.

Ford GT was the fastest though...

Around a track? Maybe they missed their target but I thought it was beating Ferrari's and vettes while in development??

I am pretty sure that a stock Ford GT would ass rape a z06.

EDIT-guess hangman found the same article.^^^^^^^^^^^

Closer than I thought, but if someone is giving me one for free, I'll take the GT.
Bang for buck the Vette is sweet as I said before- even a "standard" vette is a real nice car. Z06 has better corner G's and braking. All numbers are REAL close though. 'cept price.

I knew they went off on the Z06 but damn, didn't realize just how much. Told Diablo he needed one last year when he was thinking about it. Trackdays at Road Atlanta in a Z06 (or a GT.) Mmmmm.
