    I'm not meaning to offend you. SRT8s run 14 second quarter mile times the same way stock Mustangs run 16 second quarter mile times. The truth is that most people can't drive. I'm just trying to point out that comparing two cars is one thing. I think the Mustang should be a hair faster. That's my opinion. But that has very little to do with winning a race. Good driving wins races far more often than a faster car. The OP is asking if he has a chance based on what kind of modifications he has done, when it really isn't all that relevant.

    Must be a low altitude track. Here in the Midwest they don't run that. Lots and lots of low to mid 13's or slower.

    My hemi ram would habitually destroy mustangs. Even back in 03 and 04 there were a bunch of us running deep 12s in a full size truck with just bolt ons.

    The SRTs aren't running 14s. They are faster than that. I was just trying to make a point.

    I keep logging in to see the outcome of this race, but every time I do, it's more debating over which one is faster.
