Not to flame but he should have had no problem kicking your ass, perhaps he didn't know you were racing?
Flame away.

He knew exactly what he was doing. So did his wife in his car. So did my GF in my car. So did my buddy & his daughter in his 4-71 blown 383 stroker 1974 Pontiac Grand AM in the 3rd lane. So did Everyone behind us. So did everyone in the opposite lane of traffic. So did the bums on Main St. So did the pigeons watching us while perched majestically on top of a billboard.

He's only a 11.50 car as it sat according to him.

Yeah anyways he wanted to go. So there's that.

A C8 corvette runs to 60 in 2.8-2.9 seconds and runs 11.2-11.5 in the quarter mile……and you’re saying a 17 Mustang with a canned tune and about 20hp of bolt ons, caught a C8 that launched by 2nd gear (before 60) and pulled away from it? I’d like to see proof of that. Neither my Whipple’d 2020GT with a ton of suspension or my stock GT350 can hang with a C8 to 60

Perhaps the C8 simply ran to the speed limit and then came off the gas while OP stayed in? That's the only explanation I can see. And maybe OP was just soo excited that he thought he caught the guy. I'm not knocking anyone nor am I underestimating anyone. As powerful as the C8 is a 17 GT with boltons is not reeling him in at the 1-2 shift and then passing him in the middle of 2nd. Even if he could reel that car in it would take some time and room if both were fully committed and both kept their foot down if the C8 hole shot him as good as he is saying. If they were at the track and if he had enough power to catch and pass it would take the entirety of the quarter mile. It definitely ain't happening in the middle of 2nd. Old dude in the Vette was probably just doing a 45 burst and then got off it in case the cops were out or something. I doubt it was a legit full send on both participants.

I don’t believe so either.

Even the current GT500 can’t catch a C8 to 60mph. Traction alone is the problem.
