Uhhh. Why did you decide to mention Mustangs. I thought this was about the WRX. By the way, stock for stock a new Cobra will tear the S4 a new one for your information.
P.S. Your uncle better have a helluva lot done to his S4 to make a new M3 look bad, otherwise that M3 driver simply couldn't drive.
I just destroyed a Cobra the other day. We were on a lightly travelled hwy, he jumps on my tail. I go right up to 100 just to let him know I didn't appreciate it. Then he flies up to the left and kind slows down and speeds up. I didn't even downshift (I was in sixth) and I crushed him. Accelerated to about 130, he was trying but he wais never closer than 2/3 car lengths behind. Just as I'm about to embarass him, I slow down just enough to let him catch up. I did this a few times then I tired of it and he flew by me doing at least 100 or so. I'll bet he thinks he won. This post in no way states that the S4 is faster than a Cobra, on this particular day, with this driver and these conditions it was.
I have no idea what my car runs 1/4 mile. When I get mobil1 at my next service I'll probably go to the track a little. Informally, I ran some 0-60 times of about 5 seconds. These are unscientific, basically a buddy with a stop watch and me dropping the clutch at 4K rpms.
I'll race a Cobra, M5, M3, C5 Vette, Saleen, whatever. Been there, done that, beat them all..and thats even before the car was in final tune. Granted, its not the fastest car in the world, but I'm hunting for Vipers when its all said and done.
Whatever, I am gonna have to let you in on something here. A few months ago Muscle Mustangs and Fast Ford's got a bone stock 2001 Cobra to run a 13.35 in the 1/4 in less than ideal conditions. Hell, new GT's can easily run 13.8-.9 with a good driver and decent conditions. So I don't know where you got your info from but they were very wrong.
P.S. Zerind if your hunting for Viper's then my hat's off to you!!!
Guys, what's all that about mustangs beating your S4 on the start! My dream is to own a S4! I'd sell my left nut for one of those! But if a Mustang can beat you, either you can't drive or I was all wrong about the S4! I can beat a stang 3 out of 5 with my 2.0 1998 Jetta! It has to be a short run but it's all about traction. While they're running through a set of tires, I'm long gone. And I "tried" to challenge an S4... The guy let me pass him to laugh at me and then he slammed it, slowed down beside my dying 2.0, laughed his butt of and passed me as if I shifted in reverse.
Turboyum, Man you people make me laugh, when you hear mustang you just asume that they are all alike. Oh yeah, that's right, you never owned an $80,000 plus race car before have you.
I've never owned an $80,000+ race car, but I have owned a Mustang GT. No comment, mom always said if you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything.
Well, If you paid 80,000$ for a for, I don't even need to tell you you got ass-raped! LOL! I'm sorry but anyone who would pay 80 grand for a Ford needs help fast. Hell, I wouldn't even take 80 Fords for 80 grand. And it's like saying oooooh, I could beat your Chevette with my Porsche 911 Turbo!! Ya, well the guy in the Porsche just paid 200 grand more for his car. I take pride in my little Jet showing off he cute little ar$e to mean Mustang drivers that think that cause they have Mustang writen on their car, they own everything on the road.
Sorry to flame but I just hate when Ford jocks think they know better than all the rest of us.
I guess you are misinterpretating. I never said I knew more than anyone, and I too own a Volkswagen and I love it. Everyone has their own opinion on what kind of car(s) they like or DON'T LIKE FOR THIS MATTER, so I guess keep them to yourself. And FYI the newer mustangs with the modular engines, are very expensive to modify, So who gives a &$%# how much someone spends on their car. If you have the money and want to spend it then go right ahead, its your business. Take an s4 for example, AWESOME CAR, and if you wanted to mod the #[email protected]# out of it, that too would cost you ALOT of money in the end. So what it really comes down to is CANT WE ALL JUST GET ALONG
