    Good old Street racing!! it wasnt a full 1/4 and never ever race a full built race car against a street car less then a 1/4 unless you going on a roll. And that Mustang had his hand in Izzys Pocket from Hello.

    It's a Foxbody Mustang trying to hustle people. The only thing misplaced is the that the owner isn't in Fast and the Furious and he's missing neon underbody lights.

    Oh yeah of course they keep their Veyrons at their summer home.

    No what's hilarious is your comment about people who list their whp being glorified bench racers automatically stereotyping people when maybe those people have grown up and take it to the track or events like responsible adults? Once again, they don't care about $5k and my 'lol M3' has more under the hood than that Mustang is worth. Don't think I do not respect the performance but don't sit here and talk about how much they 'may' have when the guy has to modify some old domestic pile of crap to stretch a dollar so he can street race for cash. It's a quick pile of crap, don't get me wrong, and I respect the performance but STFU with your nonsense.

    I'm stereotyping yet you're the one assuming people don't have more than an old mustang...that's rich; tell me more about these people you've never met but are passing judgement on. Seeing as I have seen what I'm talking about on numerous occasions....I don't care what you think; I stand to gain nothing from lieing about something like that...

    People with LARGE amounts of disposable income build race cars all the time...they are smarter than yourself for starting with a better platform that will end up running 8's for what you try to run bottom 10's with. But in your book that means they have less...lmao

    From what I read the owner makes a point of how little he spent. I think for the most part people who modify old mustangs for the 1/4 mile aren't modifying new 911 Turbos. Wonder why that is?

    Sure. And people with small amounts do too. Some race GT3 class based cars on roadcourses and others Camaros built for a 1/4 mile sprint. One of these costs more than the other.

    No in my book my point was pointing out the absurdity of your claim that wheel horsepower means bench racing. I stated that people who build higher end cars likely are to take it to the track to race and do not care about street racing for $5k. Just because you don't race on the street endangering yourself and other people doesn't mean you do not use your car. Obviously you are having trouble grasping this.

    What are you talking about I know PLENTY of people that go to the track and lay down 8's but WILL NEVER EVER put their WHP on display for the internet...This has nothing to do with going to the track vs the street; it has everything to do with racing and the spirit of competition. (full stop)

    You post your slip and you are displaying your WHP so what's your point?

    Then I find it odd you stated people who post their wheel horsepower are internet racers implying they never see the track. Now you're backpedaling which you should be because your comment was absolutely idiotic.

    whatever you say man....I said posting your whp all over the internet is something typical of bench/internet racers. I'm not retracting it. They aren't posting their time slips all over the internet either. These practices seem foreign to you...maybe because you aren't in that arena of competition to see it happening

    And I'm telling you you're wrong. Not everyone who posts a dyno on this website or any other for that matter is automatically a bench racer. Maybe it doesn't matter to them who knows how much power they're making because their goal isn't to try to hustle someone for peanuts?

    You're right, I take the more mature approach when it comes to automotive competition. You'll see me on the track and you'll know how much power I'm making. Keep your change too btw.

    That Mustang probably has 'more under the hood' than the cost of a 30k mile E9X M3. 500whp is obv BS.

    My friend used to run in the now defunct NMRA Hot Street. 347ci 10,500 RPM N/A engine that ran 8.40s. That is an expensive engine.....

    He also has a pro-mod car. The engine and trans cost more than your E92M, all of your mods and my E46M combined.

    Like most of the serious drag racers, he has a lot of $$$. It has nothing to do with stretching a buck, they like drag racing and they pick the best car for the job. Mustangs are good for drag racing Click here to enlarge

    From what I read, no it doesn't. And domestics are easier and cheaper to modify we all know that. A 30k mile M3 is how much money? How much does it take to build a domestic V8? Come on now. And we don't need to get into what it costs to build an M3 you already know that.

    Sure is. There's cheaper ways to go 8.4s with a 347 though rather than high revving all motor right? A little giggle juice, a blower, a turbo, you name it.

    A cheap solid rear axle V8 car better be or else it has no other redeeming quality.

    That is a REALLY FAST manually shifted Mustang. Look at the Vette race. He had to lift big time in the Porsche vid but still pulled those cars. Yes I'd bet good $$$ there is a LOT of $$$ under the hood ;-)

    This. Sticky your way off base here, I'm around a lot of drag racers and trust me people with a good drag car have a fairly large amount of disposable income. Hell my 240 build isnt all that and there is 100k in it. To build some of these top drag cars(and I mean sportsman drag cars) you could easily spend 200-300k never mind buying a tow rig and the money it costs to attend events, up keep on the car etc. That mustang is A LOT closer to 500whp than you guys are thinking it just has been built and tested VERY well and works extremely well for what it is. If your M3 is so badass I would love to setup a run for you and this mustang and since you can piss away 5k I'm sure you'd do it just for giggles. Let me know.

    It's fast and hooks but I really doubt there is all that much when put in context of what it costs to build other platforms. Mustangs have been figured out, done to death. Tons of cheaper parts, easy ways to get power, etc. It's simply the way it is with domestics. It will cost more to do it with something German, Italian, etc.

    Of course it depends. Sure, someone can be a billionaire and drive an old Lincoln town car too. I've been to the strip. I know who is dragging what and why.

    There are exceptions but the reality of the matter is people who have a bunch of money aren't trying to hustle $5k in a street race.

    Well it is quite badass but I'm not stupid enough to claim M3's are all of a sudden going to become the drag strip weapon of choice versus Mustang's or that John Force is going to change everything he does now. Domestics will always rule the drag strip.

    That doesn't change anything I've written.

    First of all they were trying to run for 10k but the porsche wasnt having it. Second you dont know much if you think its all about the 5k. That grudge racing $#@! is fun as hell and the competition is a big part of why I wanted to build a drag only car.

    I would say all the big domestic race engines that go through my machinist's shop spends on average 15k minimum to be competitive.

    some spend less than 10, I can't tell you how many I have seen WAY north of 20+k.

    i agree with @Mike@VAC, knowing and seeing what goes thru on these race engines, you can spend a metric buttload of money getting a dependable competitive race engine

    i agree with @Mike@VAC, knowing and seeing what goes thru on these race engines, you can spend a metric buttload of money getting a dependable competitive race engine
    I know of a few people who have spent 30-35k plus on a sbnos motor. Hell if you want billet heads and block you can easily spend 50k.

    Great race, silly fast Mustang. I'm amused that folks who have likely never raced for $5k find it trivial. That Mustang is likely $50k min into suspension, trans (note the no lift power shifts), motor and car. It's very likely under 3000lbs as well which doesn't hurt, that combined with 450-500whp can run into the 9's with ease.

    It's hooking up damn well and thats the win. Spanked a GTR, Z06 and a 911TT so far from what I have seen.
