    I got to watch about 1/2 of it and specifically asked him if he beat 11.0 in the 1/4 and he said, “yes, we’ll tell you all about it Tuesday morning when the embargo is lifted”.

    I missed the reference to the HP. Very interesting.

    Life on the forums...... if the trolls didn't come in here and start a bunch of crap, there wouldn't be a problem. I agree, it is a shame, but a fact of life. The reprisals are a defense against those that do not come here in good faith as automotive enthusiasts. This thread is an example. Many of the posts were deleted, but it is just an attempt to start a bunch of discord and controversy. I have no issue in giving it back to people with that kind of intent.

    I really dont get it, I guess Americans like driving boats. I will agree it's a comfier and roomier ride. It's also weird how it does better mpg than a mustang. My 13 when I had it the best I could do is 15mpg. My viper the best I could do is low 15mpg and usually 13-14mpg.

    That video is another lame controlled display press conference.

    Give the damn car to the media and automotive magazine journalists for some metered testing!!!!

    Figured I'd chime in here about the times. I was at the launch and am under embargo for performance numbers and driving impressions until Tuesday at 6am EDT. I'm not sure what day those leaked times were from but I can say that when I was running it down the drag strip on Thursday, we had 30 mph headwinds...so don't get upset about the times you've seen so far.

    Time for the trolls to go back under the bridge. Hopefully the moderators will come clean house.

    You don’t have to be a Ford enthusiast to be here, but for Christ sakes if you aren’t bringing useful content, get out. For the record, some of the trolls here are mustang owners.

    I would like to think Tuesday will bring a stop to this, but my money says it will get worse.

    I miss when loud mouths were handled properly. You know, before the world created keyboard warriors.

    Also StangMode has the fastest 1/4 mile pass so far.

    Yep, it’s about to get real.

    Correct.

    Im getting more serious about this car. I didn’t want one at all last year.

    I’m starting to change my mind. If I see an ‘8’ in the horsepower and a [email protected], I might be there. Christ it’s gonna bankrupt me lol.

    I do not know the exact time but it won’t be a 10.99 that’s for sure.

    Remember this is almost 2000 feet above sea level and 2500 da.

    Let's not forget ladies and gentlemen,............this is a stock car. I'm sure a lot of stock cars aren't running high 10's in the quarter mile.
    Add in a smaller pulley, some nice drag wheels/tires all tuned on E85 and watch it go!!!!

    Chill & Voodoo, you both have direct lines to Stangmode, we know he gave you numbers. Just tell the group did he beat 10.5.
    Also not surprised hes the days fastest, the dude can drive a car in the 1/4.
